"I wanted a really light gillett for late spring / early autumn. This weighs nothing and packs very small. It is windproof and shower proof (and hail proof too!).
Only downside is the top of the zip is difficult to do up, and being Castelli it sizes up small. I'm 6' 0" and slim and have gone for an XL!
"

"I'm not someone who rides at night so can't comment on it's suitability for that purpose, but as a day light this fits the bill. It's not too big, bulky or heavy, and has a variety of settings.
Simple to recharge by plugging into a USB socket.

"This is my second set of GP4000s tyres. The previous set did over 6,000 kms and never had a flat apart from the rear on the last two rides.
Good grip, low rolling resistance, able to use all year round - what more could you want from a tyre?!

"With the sun falling over the wrong side of the equator I wanted a rear light for those gloomy autumn and winter days, and early evenings. My requirement was for the light to be rechargeable and small. This fits the bill perfectly, and is easy to use and with multi modes it can flash or be constant. Rode for 75 kms in drizzle with it at the weekend with no problems."
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight

Is the white transparent at all? I am keen to get a white gilet but solid colour...Not easy to find, recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks Wade

Yes, it's pretty transparent though opaque may be a better description.

 Continental Grand Prix 4000 Folding Road Tyre
Continental Grand Prix 4000 Folding Road Tyre
The Grand Prix 4000 works on every road surface, transforming the demands of different styles of riding and supplies extremely long-term performance. It also achieves expectations in precision and production quality.
 

Where is the directional indicator on these tyres?

Apparently these tyres should go on one way only and the instructions say to mount it according to the indicator on the side wall. I can't find any indicator or arrow at all to show which direction they need to be fitted. Can anyone help me out?
There is a small arrow on the sidewall of the tyre, think it's only on one side though.

The Mandible is tough enough for any type of use, including mountain bike, triathlon style brackets, and cobble-esque road riding. Designed for lengthy rides, The Mandible is strong but light, and work better than anything else available.
 

Do these come with mounting bolts included

No it doesn't.

Premium bib short at a brilliant price with a top-level Tour Air CyTech Elastic Interface chamois and moisture management Field Sensor fabric for serious sessions in the saddle.
 

Another one about sizing (5ft 11in, 155 pounds)

Hi everyone

Im willing to buy one of this but Im between two sizes, as many other people here

Im 5ft 11in (182cm), 155pounds (70kgs), waist 32 in (81 cm). So by my high i should go to a large and a medium by waist. I read comments of people with similar proportions and some recommend L and some M...

Any advice? Thanks a lot
I'm 6'0, 77 kgs and about a 32" waist - the large fit perfectly.

The Aeron cycling shorts pack an amazing feature set at a competitive price: premium Italian stretch fabric, refined fit furnished with the ‘Race LT’ CyTech Elastic Interface cycle pad. An excellent value cycling bib short without compromise.
 

Is it 'thin' one?

Dear Wiggle team,

How are you? I know it's a dumb question but may I ask if this bib short is thin? I have bought some Dhb bib shorts and they are all thick (just for winter) so need to buy thin for summer.

Thanks~
Best answer
I'd class it a a summer short.
