"Whilst I was happy with the cream initially, I soon discovered that this cream adheres very well to your shorts and sticks like heavy duty grease. It does not just wash out. The cream itself does seem to work quite well being thick and doesn't dissipate in an instant unlike other creams. There are better options sold here at Wiggle"
Pros: works well
Cons: does not wash out

"Ok, it's a bit euro pro but it does mount your Garmin very well and its held securely in the mount with no fear of it accidentally falling. The rubber band/plastic mount is poor to say the least. Yes it looks cool. The mounting hardware is rated at 2Nm which is not very tight so I would suggest Loctite to be used when mounting. Overall, it looks cool and functions very well. I have found the mounting position does make for easier reading of the display. Rather expensive"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

"Provided you don't pay a fortune for these tyres they are an excellent tyre that offers comfort, grip and handling. It works like a radial tyre and doesn't flat spot like many other brands. They are prone to cuts and lifespan is approx 3000km. I currently use a 23 on the front and a 25 rear. Its by far the best combination I've ever used with a noticeable improvement in comfort with no loss in speed or handling. I tend to dispose of tyres due to damage rather than wear and this is generally the case with Schwalbe tyres, but considering the cost this does not concern me. Fit well on the rim"
Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit
Cons: Wears Out Easily

"Got these because changing Campag brake pads are a nightmare. I swap out my carbon and ally wheels often and these blocks really help. Shimano brake pads are easier to source. Look good. Only come as a pair so you have to buy 2 pairs."
Pros: Adjustable, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

"The gear changes on my Campag bike were much more precise. Change at the leaver and bang it was right into the next gear. It does make your drive train noisier. Regular maint and cleaning would be a good idea. I like them though, would certainly buy again"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, improved shifting

"One of the few tri bar setups available where you can use a riser kit to raise the pads and extensions together (3T make a kit for this). Love the alloy extensions, very little weight diff and fixing with alloy is easier. Main criticism is the alloy pad base, wow they are heavy being solid mould. Fit is gooad as is cable routing. For the price, very hard to beat"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Adjustable, Good Fit
Cons: heavy pad mounts, should come with the riser kit

"This is a cream, not a paste like Assos Cream. The best thing about this, is quite simply it can be applied to those area's (mucous memebranes or tender bits or don't kick me there bits) and it doesn't burn like Assos. I think this is due to the lack of menthol. Basically it provides a lubricant to relieve abrasion"

"Absolute must have for assembley and maintenance of your modern bicycle. Most parts come with a torque rating and its wise to follow this to avoid damaging your valuable bike. Their torque break out mechanism is unmissable unlike some clicker version that break readily or can't hear. The torque setting mech is quite good as well. You just have to look at the scale square on as it can be misread by 1 Nm (not that 1 Nm makes a diff). Especially good with the extra bits. This is up there with a chain cleaner, chain keeper and pedal spanner, must have item"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Adjustable, essential

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
