"Just worn the jersey for the first time. Temperature was between -2 and +2 over a 60 mile ride. With just a thin thermal base layer and a hi viz gilet I never felt cold.
Hard to believe how effective the jersey is as it's quite light weight.
Race fit is great - no flapping."
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

"4 punctures in 4 rides. Getting the tyre off and back on at the roadside with numb fingers in a wet sub 2 degrees ride almost defeated me. Will stick to folding tyres in future."
Cons: Poor Fit

"An amazing addition to my commuting by bike uniform. Setting off at 6:30am the air has a chill even in summer and this gilet keeps out the draught and the chill really well. Its not too hot to cycle home in later in the day either.
Good size pockets at both sides of the gilet are really useful for keys and id card as well."

"Getting desperate after 5 successive punctures on 5 succesive rides I found the review for this tyre. Fitted easily to my wheel and off I went. No punctures so far so this tyre gets a big thumbs up from me.
Not sure about the claims of improved speeding up the hill but neither have I noticed any speed loss.
Does exactly what it says on the tin."
Pros: High Quality, Rugged, puncture free

"Racing yourself" in real tme is a real challenge as well.
Wow !"

Is that bag ok for multiple uses?

Hi all,

I just moved into a flat and have no where to store my bike, I can't wheel it in because of the dirt etc, would this bag be ok for multiple uses?
Its a really thick bag and will be difficult to rip.

Right size for a tall guy?

I'm 6ft 2 / 90kg - would an XL seem a suitable choice?
I'm 6ft 2 and 13 stone 10 and I got the large. Its snug but not tight.
