"These came standard with my Felt B12 and worked very well for 6 months. Occasionally the RD shifter would stick on the upshift but would free up on the downshift. They also started rattling as the tiny retaining screw for the covers worked loose on both sides (maybe thanks to the shocking state of the local roads and increased mileage).
The RD shifter then seized completely - never to work again - stuck in 1st gear when I was half way through a 160k so I had to ride several miles in first gear (not wanting to cross chain too much).
LBS replaced with Dura Ace b/e shifters -more basic but do the job and are matched perfectly to the Ultegra derailleurs. They also said that either the OEM or the distributor had withdrawn the Metron shifters from sale. (Have not verified this).
Lots online to read about their reliability. Real shame as they were great when they worked."
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: Wears Out Easily

A large, elevated gauge, an extra long hose and SmartHead make this one terrific pump.

"I got this for open water to wear with a bright latex cap over the top. Works very well and is easy to put on and take off as well as staying where you want it to during the swim."

"I use this to protect against runners nipple after long runs (15+ miles) as an alternative to plasters which are a bit of a hassle (particularly if you are quite hairy). The results have been excellent."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, protects against runners nipple
Cons: takes a bit of washing off
