"While not cheap by any means think about the prospect of a snagged chain on a descent chainsawing around your bb. I did so I got one, if you're competant at servicing gears its very easy to fit yourself, if not get the lbs on the job( the braze-on type involves loosening the front derailleur off). Maybe the band-on type is easier to fit and doesn't involve derailleur disturbance, not sure. Got it in black for my Kuota Kharma and with the logo of the chain catcher being virtually identical to the Kuota logo it looks integral to the bike, result. Very happy, one thing not to worry about anymore. Also slickens up a downward ring change no end, feels good. If you hesitate at the price remember you'll only ever buy one for each bike."

Fixes punctures before you even know you have one! These tubes are filled with Slime which can repeatedly seal punctures up to 3mm. The high tech, environmentally friendly formula inside the tube, keeps working to prevent further punctures.

"Being new to road cycling and having taken it up as a fitness route(I was fat) I got these after reading reviews as an option which wouldnt load me up with calories or carbs, but gave electrolyte replacement and helped burn fat. after six mths regular riding I've lost three stones in weight and feel great. I think this product works, and tastes good."

"Was looking for some light-weight water-proof trousers for road training on my mountain bike, just for the shorter high-intensity burst rides, the kind you fit in where you can. These do the job perfectly for me. Only gripe is that small hole has appeared in the crotch after five or six uses but then I have used them hard and for the cost am not too concerned, will get another pair(anyway, adds breathability)! Great leg tapes, great fit, look sleek on and do the job. Well worth the low cost. Nice one!!"
