"had a decent Fizik saddle on my bike and lived with it for a year before realising the importance of a sized saddle. This really has transformed my riding as able to use the drops more and no numbness!
Great for the wiggle 100+ milers!"

R-SYS SLR Clincher Wheelset
These clinchers are superb and ideal for the serious roadie and/or climber. They feature Mavic’s Exalith 2 rims, which provide a high level of performance and stopping power in all weathers. These wheels also come fitted with their Yksion tyres.
Transformed my Cannondale Synapse Hi Mod 3 Ultegra
"Bought these wheels for summer use instead of the Kysrium Elite which are standard on my bike.
I have now riddled around 100 miles on them and cannot believe the way it has made the bike more responsive in a number of ways. Firstly climbing is far easier, secondly pure acceleration is improved dramatically, corner handling is far more secure because of improved grip. The other amazing feature is the braking which can only be described as like having disc brakes on a road bike. The bike just seems to move with far less effort. The only downside is I don't think the pads will last very long, and at £17/pair expect to get through a set at least a month. Highly recommended and worth every penny"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight
Cons: pad wear

Sidi Diablo Gore Tex Winter MTB Boots
Weatherproof protection for committed year-round Mountain bikers. When rain and snow won't keep you off the trails, Sidi Diablo boots keep your feet warm and dry with a breathable Gore-Tex lining and extended coverage to seal out the elements.
"Keeps feet and especially toes warm and dry. I have tried a myriad of overshoes but these are worth every penny and should be part of the winter wardrobe. I have another 2 x pairs of standard sidi shoes and they last years. Replacement parts available to keep them going so expect to get 10+ years out of these."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Rugged, High Quality, Adjustable, Versatile, Good Fit, waterproof

OLYMPIA LED 1800L Light System (6cell) 3.40 Hours
NEW Triple CREE XM-L LED Light. Gemini's new flagship product with 1700 lumens of output.
"I ride in the evenings with a lot of MTB'rs and these new 1800 lumen lights are twice as good as any Exposure lights the others have. They simply turn the night into day. Battery life is also quite amazing. I left them on to go flat and this takes 2 days!! What more could you want. Other riders have commented on the fact the light is far more stable not being top heavy like the exposure lights with the built in battery. So overall save £100's and buy these instead if you are considering the high level lights"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Rugged, High Quality, Lightweight, Versatile, very very bright, long lasting battery

"Camelbacks have always been associated with MTB riding, but this bottle is a really clever idea for roadies. I like the way you can drink whilst riding and being able to keep your eyes on the road (no head tipping required) Finally when you come home after the ride, you can leave the straw in the bottle with the lid unscrewed so that air gets in and you dont lose the lid. Two great little things to consider. I like it!"
