"I suffer from cold feet even on warm days so need a warm boot for the winter months living in Switzerland. Paired with merino winter socks I can feel my toes after a 2-3 hour ride in temps as low as zero - what more could you want?
Add to the performance that these shoes look great, fit well for my awkward size 47's (i bought a 48 as most cycling shoes come up tight on me and its perfect).
At the price I paid on Wiggle, I highly recommend them to anyone who has winter training in mind."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

"Great little light. Good value. Small, versatile and can easily be removed if you use them on a commute.
Both front and rear have contstant bright light plus 3 or 4 flashing options.
A nice little light that isnt in the way and gives you the safety of knowing you have something on for when the light or weather goes and you have a way to go before home"
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight

"I love these wheels, bought for a great price on Wiggle so that helped the pocket too :)
If you want a lightweight, stiff, good looking carbon clincher that actually has good breaking ability then look no further. I'm a 100kg rider and dont feel any flex getting out the saddle on climbs or sprints. The hubs a re near silent so also good for hiding on a wheel... (not so easy on Zipp 404 due to their agricultural sound btw)
You can find lighter wheels but for all round use, value, quality and comfort you cant really go far wrong. Love mine."
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight, Durable, Great Value, High Quality

"I bought these shorts as I wanted something modern but retro looking. For me Morvelo manages that but also uses modern fabrics so you get comfort and function. Have been really impressed with the fit and comfort on long rides with lots of climbing so I'm seated in one position for extended periods.
I followed their size chart and ordered XL in both shorts and jersey and the fit is excellent for me. I'm 187cm and 100kg of gravity hating build.
Time will tell on durability but build quality seems on a par with my Assos and Rapha shorts so far."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit, retro chic

"Great value, great fitting, keep my knees warm on cold mornings and look good. Roll up as a pair into a good pocket size for when it warms up. Living in Switzerland its deriguer to wear Assos but i fail to find anything that has the same quality vs price benefits of DHB."

"Great value, quality kit from DHB once again. I'm 6'2" with a 44 chest and the XL fits nicely - a sporting fit but comfortable on rides of 3hrs+. Keeps the rain and wind out while MTB'ing or commuting. As its only a shell you'll need some warm layers underneath."

"Great set of lights that I use on my MTB for those late runs home or for cummuting in the city. Battery life is good, as is having the option to run on just one light or set them to flashing mode to let drivers know you are there. Battery pack a little bulky but once its strapped tot he downtube you dont notice it and it sits very securely in place using the velcro straps provided. Great value when bought for 40% off in the Wiggle sale :)"
Pros: High Quality, Rugged, Versatile

The Heritage Radarlock Path is part of the Heritage collection, which looks back over the last 30 years of Oakley sunglasses. The Heritage Radarlock Path features unique colour styles yet still offers the same technologies as the standard Radarlock Path.
 

2 lemses or 1 included?

The product description says 2 lenses - one for low light, one for bright. However there is no info confirming this on the 'buy' tab.

The Dakine bike bag is a heavy duty bike bag with a large amount of padding and internal padded bags for wheels, forks and the rear triangle.
 

Fit for frame with ISP?

Will the bag fit a custom road frame with an 80cm integrated seat post (bottom bracket cc to top of post) ?

I'm a wind cheating 100kg and dont have any issues with wheel flex (good wheels shouldnt have a weight limit in my opinion)

 Torque Key 2011
Torque Key 2011
Properly install your Ritchey carbon bars and stem without fear of over-torquing. This Torque Key uses a M4 bit and is pre-set to 5Nm (maximum recommended torque for Ritchey carbon bars and WCS stems).
 

Click?

Is this supposed to click at 5Nm?
Yes. Its quite subtle though so becareful not to try again for a 2nd click as this will increase the pressure above 5Nm
