REFRESH - Performance, Recovery. 2XU is proud to present PWX – a collection of premium Compression fabrics engineered to offer optimal POWER, WEIGHT and FLEXIBILITY in perfect equilibrium depending on your needs.
"This is my first venture into compression tights. The sizing guide appears pretty good. I'm 5'9" & 30" waist and weigh 69kg. The size small fits me tightly and really feels like it's "compressing" the leg muscles. The quality of the fabric feel good, but only longer term use with prove whether this is the case Don't expect many flattering comments from the wife regarding appearance though!!!"
The all new GatorHardshell delivers. Sharing the bead-to-bead protection of Duraskin, the Hardshell casing wraps further into the sidewall and an extra-wide PolyX Breaker covers the entire tread strip from shoulder-to-shoulder. Great for Winter use.
"Purchased this to replace an existing tyre of same type. Using the old tyre I only had a couple of punctures in over a year of commuting and winter training rides. It is pretty bomb proof which is what I wanted. The old tyre had done in the region of 4-5000 miles and it was only a side wall slash that put the old tyre beyond use, otherwise it still had some life left in it. I have had some cuts in the tyre during this time, but none caused a puncture and all were able to be repaired with super glue. Yes it's heavier than some, but for the application it's intended for weight is less of a consideration."
Fast recovery is vital to reaching and maintaining a high level of fitness. The body recovers at the greatest rate during a two hour window immediately after exercise but only if you provide it with the vital nutrients it needs.
"Been using this product for last few years. Have tried a few others and keep coming back to this one. It mixes more easily and rarely leaves lumps. I use one of the supplement shaker bottles add a small amount of milk then the powder and then top it up. Lid on, 30 seconds mixing and drink. Couldn't be easier and really does leave you feeling like you've eaten a small meal."
Pros: High Quality, tastey, mixes easily

Classic Race Short Sleeve Jersey 2013
A vintage styled summer cycling jersey with modern performance and features. The Classic Race jersey combines a lightweight, high wicking feel with looks borrowed from road cycling's rich heritage.
"I ordered the Black version. I'm 5ft 9 and 39 inch chest with 15 1/2 inch neck. It fits great. It's a snug close fit ,the arms are quite tight but I don't feel restricted. I love the look and the feel. The rear pockets are generous without getting sloppy when loaded. I was able to put a couple of cans of beer in them on the way back home after a sunny ride without problem. The detail on the closure for the neck is good, with the zip being well hidden by the fabric. All in all I love it and would buy another"
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

"As above I've not owned a Turbo before, but have had a try of friends versions. This is by far the most sustantial and sturdy I have been on. You really feel it's going to last. Initially I thought it wasn't going to be hard enough / provide enough resistance, but after my first serious session with my HRT monitor as a guide I found myself backing off the resistance dial onto a lower level. Saying that I'm surprised that I'm on the penultimate highest level already and have niggling concerns regarding this. I presume as it uses air, the resistance is exponential with the turbo velocity so I shouldn't out grow it. Have marked this down as a "con" I'm still getting used to how hard to tighten the turbo against the wheel to prevent slippage when you attempt short spurts of power, but that's just fine tuning. The noise level is quite quiet really, but as I've got my IPOD on it's not a problem anyway. Have not experienced any tire debris yet as per other peoples comments. It comes with it's own quick release and is easy to set up and put away. I have mine in the garage and can be riding in a matter in minutes. I spend more time messing around with music/water bottle/ fans to keep cool than I spend setting up the turbo. It's a good peice of kit, as you would expect from WIGGLE"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Rugged, Adjustable
Cons: Not Enough Features

Earnley Cycling Bib Shorts
The Earnley range - quality kit at unbeatable prices
"I've bought quite a bit of DHB now and it really is good value "un-branded" equipment. These shorts could perhaps do with being just a touch wider over the shoulders, but that does not mean the current fit is narrow or cuts into you. It's a personal preference and a comparison to my other shorts which were also £65 !!!! I'm 5'9" 32" waist 39" chest and the size small is perect"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Good Fit
Excellent value SPD-SL compatible road bike pedals for a secure interface with your cycling shoes. Supplied with 6 degree float cleats and sporting a wide profile, Shimano PD-R540 are the perfect introduction to performance road cycling pedals.
"These are my first set of road shoes. I've had MTB before. While I'm sure some of the more expensive shoes perhaps look better and give greater adjustment these have been just fine. Given the moulded nature of the heal wearing area, these will have shorter finite life I'm sure, but then you shouldn't do lots of walking in them anyway. I trained for and completed the Land's End John O'Groats ride with no compaints at all. For those used to MTB SPD's, these will give you more purchase and power transfer Overall great value entry level road shoe. Value for money...."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Adjustable
Packaged in sets of three, the Park Tool Tire Levers are made of glass-injected nylon to ensure long life and damage-free operation. The unique design of the TL-1 actually lifts the tire away from the rim and keeps the tube from being pinched.
"I keep a set of these in my saddle bag and I've have had cause to use them due to a few punctures over the last few months. They appear to be pretty strong. They're angled to make it easy to get in & under the tyre edge just fine. No complaints so far and no breakages. Certainly better than the last set I had from Halfords of a similar style"

My ultegra chain has a master link. Can I remove it from my old chain and use it with this one?
Sometime difficult to free off old speed links. They can be re-used but to be honest I prefer to use a a new one on a new chain as the speed link does wear. I put the old one in the saddle bag for emergencies on the road.
