"Good comfortable socks for everyday riding. With clean uncluttered but fun designs, the SockGuy Classics are regularly adorning my feet.
My only gripe - for the Lucky 13 design, one of the 13s should be upside down ... ;-)"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit

For mile eaters. Durano is the right choice for high mileage purposes, because no other racing tyre lasts longer.

"I am very happy with these tyres for my small-wheeled bike.
I replaced the stock 40mm tyres on my Hooligan with the 28-406 version of the Durano for an immediate improvement in ride quality and a drop in weight. They roll nicely on smaller wheels, and are still in good condition after daily use for quite a few km.
Either I am careful, or the puncture protection works - no flats (yet).
Although 406 is BMX-sized, you can't squeeze fat BMX tubes into, but Schwalbe SV6 or 6A tubes work well."
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, Lightweight

"The sticker comes as a single A4 sheet, making it easy to customise the stickers to the shape and size needed.
I used the sticker in simple bands around the frame. By day it just looks like old-skool black bands, which matches the 'feel' of the steel-framed SS commuter. By night the bands are highly reflective, providing additional side visibility.
The sticker can be tricky to apply; it is easy to stretch it slightly, so that the sticker is not quite flat and then catches bubbles underneath. However, this deformability also helps when applying the stickers to curved surfaces (e.g., forks)."
Pros: effective
Cons: tricky to apply

"A very comfortable last for a broad foot. Usually I need to buy cycling shoes one size too big to get enough width, but with NorthWave I could get the correct size. The inner sole is a weak point, but easily fixed with some Specialized inners and wedges (maybe I just have bad feet).
The adjustment straps work well allowing me to make single click adjustments either way when riding.
The silver looks good when new, but isn't easy to keep looking pretty in bad weather.
These won't be my last NW shoes."
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Good Fit

Can you recommend tubes to go with these tyres?

For the 28-406, use Schwalbe SV 6, or SV 6A if you want to save a few grams.

(AV if you use Schraeder)

For the 23-520, use Schwalbe SV 9C.

Is this just on a sheet or is it pre cut designs?

The sticker is a single A4 sheet
