"I bought the correct size but they tend to gather around the knees, a bit like Nora Batty tights after a ride !!!
Not good in the wet, tends to retain moisture
"

The Grand Prix 4000S was the reference tyre in the road market but now gets a facelift. 4000S II gets a Vectran breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection and Continentals advanced BlackChili compound for lower rolling resistance and increased grip.

"I've tried various different tyres for road racing but I always go back to GP 4000'S
Be careful if you go for 25s or bigger as these are more bulky than most tyres, clearance can be an issue on older frames
"
Pros: Durable, High Quality
Cons: Bulky

Low on bulk but high on comfort the dhb Aeron 13cm Socks pamper your feet. So good they will barely be noticeable as you ride.

"I'm 5ft 11 and weigh about 77kgs and size med fits perfectly. Great at temps up to 10 degs cels, not sure how it performs when its cold. I was a bit disappointed that having been out for about 45mins in drizzle I felt the wet, thought it would be more resistant but obviously not.
Great fit and really well made piece of kit, will buy a short sleeve one for summer but I think you need to size up for the jersey.

"The weather in N.Ireland isnt good at the best of times but i've had hail stones, sleet, rain and high winds int he last 3 weeks and its only mid April. With only a long sleeved thermal base layer underneath this jacket has been great. Temp has only been as low as 4c and then up to maybe 10c during a ride but the jacket has been fantastic, and added bonus i've always arrived home dry !!
Im 5ft 11in 76kg and medium fits perfectly.
