 Park Tools Master Link Pliers
Park Tools Master Link Pliers
Park Tools Master Link Pliers are designed to help remove and replace master links in modern chain systems, although not needed when new they are invaluable on a used chain which can become 'stubborn' when attempting to separate the joining link

"Product works as described but could do with a little glue inside the handle grips which came a little loose. Love not having to cut a chain fitted with powerlock links!"

 Hope Pro3 Mono Road Rear Hub
Hope Pro3 Mono Road Rear Hub
The new Pro3 hub replaces the Mono hubs. With the proven range of Pro2s having gone from strength to strength since they were launched, the Pro3 is the development of that hub, and is specifically aimed at road and non disc users.
 

Steel freehub body

Hope also sell a version with the freehub body made of steel - is it possible to get hold of this one through wiggle please?

Can they be fitted to any bike?

I currently run a 2010 Specialized Secteur and want to swap the regular pedals to cleated pedals. As a bargain I want to know if they can be fitted to any/most bikes?
You can fit them to any bike. The thread size is universal.

Though they are branded as 'mountain bike cleats' I've been running them in London on my road bike for a number of years, because it is easier to get shoes with recessed cleats for this fitting, which means for easier walking/frequent unclipping when hitting lights.
