"I bought these thinking there would be more than the 7 patches you see in the photo - but no. $4.50 is ridiculous - considering that elsewhere on Wiggle you can buy the exact same patches, plus glue, plus sandpaper for $3.71. They should sell packs of 20 or more."
Pros: Durable, High Quality
Cons: Expensive

Slightly more convenient than back rollers

"I've used the back roller plus for ages, and now have a pair of these. Ortlieb quality is legendary. A couple of specific points:
- the outside pocket is great for last minute things you forgot to put inside.
- the complaints about it "flopping around" when mostly empty are nonsense. ignore them.
- the side compression straps can get caught in wheels if you're not careful. not sure why the ends are left free, unlike the main compression straps.
- I'm also not sure why there are two drawstrings. kind of an annoying overkill.
"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Rugged, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Versatile

"Nice satiny material is good for sliding under another pair of gloves. They're good for an evening commute when it's not too cold. Fabric breathes well.
About the only downside is the fabric care label is ridiculously massive - like 5cm by 3cm. Chop that thing off."
Pros: Comfortable, Versatile, Good Fit

"Someone actually stole half of this lock, when I dropped it briefly, while locking up in New Delhi. 20 seconds. Gone.
But anyway...I love the small size and light weight. You get all the strength of a bigger lock, plus a bit of a bonus for the "anti-jack" nature of the small size. But, it's small and doesn't weigh a ton.
Yes, it limits your parking options. In practice, that's been a pretty minor inconvenience for me. (Melbourne)"
Pros: Rugged, Lightweight

stevage's Questions
 
Long leverage cro-mo tyre levers designed for downhill or wire bead tyres.
 

Is it really strong enough to remove pedals?

Normally pedal spanners are big and burly - will this bend?
