Good solid pad for distance riding

"Pretty happy with these shorts but I've found the fit a bit tight, bibs are a bit of a stretch. Apparently they stretch over time but these do feel like a size up would have been a better option. Unfortunately they stop at XXL and I'm only 182cm and 88kg. Good value on special and would buy again, hoping I'm closer to race weight then. Very impressed by the pad, firm and a reasonable thickness without being a pillow. Leg grippers work no probs being a very wide band with silicone grippers over whole surface. Early days yet, so we'll see how the fabric holds up but so far so good. Would say that although are a tight fit they're not the kind that is uncomfortable"

At a mere 130g (Composite), the Kéo 2 MAX is one of the lightest pedals in its category. This has been achieved through the use of a carbon injection process allowing for weight reduction and improved durability.

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

"Yes, you will be the beez neez when wearing these shoes. Try to pedal as hard as they deserve. Pretty easy to keep clean and they do actually have a fair amount of air flow. well placed wear pads and easy adjustments by wire. Cleats are std Look/Shimano configuration. Best pair of shoes I've ever owned. One downside is the white inner fabric around the ankle gets dirty and not easy to keep clean"
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive, very expensive

Hefty on battery but great light

Gender : Male
"If you can live with a light that you have to charge every day, then this is the one for you. Very bright with 3 levels of light to conserve battery and blinking function. Unobtrusive and easily mounts and somewhat Euro Pro (isn't that essential). Would recommend to a friend even though battery life is a problem. Very easy to swap from one bike to another. Not waterproof so keep them high and dry"
Pros: Adjustable, bright light, small but powerful
Cons: not waterproof, short battery life

"If you're thinking you don';t need this, think again. Essential item for wiring up your EPS bike. Not something you'll use a lot but if you have friends then be a good friend and lend it to them. Cheaper than a chain tool from Campag that's for sure"
Pros: Good Fit

Tyres are just about always sold individually. If not they will clearly be sold as a set. eg. Conti Attack/Force combo

Are these Carbon Friendly

Will these work with some 50mm Carbon Tubs without damaging the rim ?

They are meant to be universal but I would suggest you just get a set of Yellow pads and swap them out if you are using all and carbon wheels, the little bits pf all that embed in the pad can etch you carbon rim
