"My bike came with a SRAM Force cassette, so I upgraded when I could. Its the biggest jump in performance I've seen between any mid to top end gear, much more noticable Ryan going from Ultegra to DuraAce.
Very light and so at, works perfectly."

A chain stay protector and patches for those who want to protect their frame but also want to still be able to see their paint jobs, durable in the extreme but stealthy to boot.

Click on the tab labelled 'size & description' for a table showing the size chart.

Size 7 is either small or medium, depending on what level of compression you are looking for (small will be tighter but still fit OK).
