With a light alloy frame, Shimano Sora components and distinctive Italian styling, the Moser Speed is the ideal introduction to performance road bikes. Perfect for ambitious new riders or experienced cyclists looking for an excellent value training bike.
"I could not believe the spec for the price - mind blowing. Light, nippy and comfortable ride. Happy to do long day rides, and saddle fine - no need to buy a new one straight away. Very good level of equipment for the price - other bikes had lower components or for big named brands a very big chunk more for same spec.
Power transfer great - responds immediately to you pushing on the pedals. I have zipped along the flat Gear changes good and it's not a harsh ride like some aluminium bikes give. It felt as comfy a ride as my steel road bike gives me.
Looks a cool bike too
Only issue I have is compact gears and only being able to drop one cog at a time on the rear. Drop from 52 to 34 a massive 18 teeth and I need to change down at least two cogs to maintain comfortable gear and momentum, but as you can only drop one cog at a time you loose momentum by the time you have done a 2nd click to drop two cogs. Not specific to this bike.
I have also changed the cassette to one going up to 32 teeth though to get easier gears - I find most entry level bikes fit gears that are too high for novices who this price range is aimed at. Although not a novice I needed to change it as I live in the lake district and would not have got up the passes I ride over! If I get stronger I can always not use the larger cogs"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Lightweight, high spec for the price

"I am writing to warn people re this product. Despite the strap making a positive click it does not hold. Being a medium I tried both straps. Neither held and within a few weeks of having it, it is lost. A lot of money down the drain. Not happy.
Also it is not accurate. It told me I had done 7000 steps when in fact I was unwell and not moving about much at all! Other recordings have also been inconsistent with walking activity done in the day.
It does not record activity other than steps so you could use s pedometer and work out your distance through measuring what your pace distance is. Much cheaper!
The warning re inactivity is by a red bar appearing. It would be more helpful to have a sound as unless you look at the watch regularly you don't notice the bar has appeared.
It does look stylish though, I give it that. But that's the only good thing about it."
"Even with pre heating and testing the flask in the house, after an hour the tea was just warm and after 2hrs it was cold. If using the bike cap the red cap comes completely away even pulling lightly on it with your teeth, as you would on a normal bike bottle when riding.
Does not fit bike cage well - almost came out and had to keep pushing it back in the cage to stop it flying off down the road.
Not good enough."
Cons: Poor Fit, Low Quality, does not keep drinks hot!

LCD Touch BacPac
The LCD Touch BacPac is a removable LCD touch screen for GoPro cameras.
"Enables you to see what you are filming, and make quick easy adjustments to any settings you want. You can instantly play back clips/stills and delete and film again if you didn't get the shot you wanted.
Much less faff than messing about with buttons.
But most key is being able to see what you are doing with the camera and what is actually being filmed rather than what you think is being filmed.
worth every penny"
Pros: Lightweight, Good Fit, enables you to see what you are filming

Northwave Blade Sunglasses - Polarised 2012
Cycle specific sunglasses with Polarised lenses to eliminate glare from reflective surfaces. Featuring an adjustable nose piece and impact resistant lenses with a water repellent treatment for protection, comfort and clarity on high intensity rides.
"This shoe is not waterproof as claimed - the minute there is light rain I get soaked and water puddle and it's not coming from my socks, as my waterproof trousers go all the way down too and over the shoes protecting them from this issue. My non waterproof shoes are drier than these.
Adjustability - there is none in terms of cleat/foot position. The cleat plates are sealed into the base of the shoe (presumably to stop water ingress that way), so you only have the option of putting the cleat into either of the two holes in the cleat - you cannot move the cleat plate forward and back. This means if you foot does not fit perfectly into those options, you are riding with your foot in an incorrect position. Result of this can be knee injuries through incorrect alignment
I have very wide feet, but found these to be overly roomy, which is a first for me!
Basically these are not used at all as can't afford knee issues and can't cope with how much water comes into the shoe, and I am better off wearing my non waterproof ones and keeping drier!
Big waste of money"
Cons: Low Quality, Poor Fit, not waterproof as claimed, not adjustable and risk of injury as a result
"I have used these for decades, including overseas. They just don't wear out even after thousands of miles. They can take lots of use and abuse,on road and off road and still run as smooth as they day I got them. They are a great price, and I really can't see the benefit of paying a lot more for the higher models Shimano offer, unless you are completely obsessed about a few grams weight difference."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, work forever!

Camelbak Podium 710ml Water Bottle
The revolutionary Podium is the squeezable bottle for the 21st century.
"Good size and no plastic taste, plus device on lid to close off to avoid spills - great if having to put it in something other than your bottle cage. can't ask for any more than that from a standard bottle."
Two PC-951 chains which are Sram's economical PowerChain but still allow accurate shifting, excellent wear resistance, and superior durability. Like all PowerChain II chains, the PC-951 uses Chrome Hardened rivet pins for increased durability.
compatibility with shimano slx shadow 9 speed rear mech
Can younus this chain with the above rear mech, and if so will it fit both the medium and long cage mechs?
