"the power link on my KMC chain broke and this link in my saddle bag had me going again in no time. Worth having a couple handy on long rides. It was a little rusty coming out of the saddle bag but with the Winter we've had, everything is damp...always..."
"This cleaner works fine but then so did the plain bike cleaner used in a greater concentration (I use Muc-Off). I'm not sure I needed a seperate oil based cleaner. nothing wrong with it but I don't believe it is exceptionally better than water based."
This is a thick glove for worst winter conditions. An integrated waterproof membrane, makes sure you stay dry inside. Hollow fill insulation provides fantastic warmth. Articulated cut helps to reduce bulk.
"First bag's swivel broke after very few rides. Wiggle very helpful for return and replacement. It's worth attaching a light chord in case it breaks (just like the picture on the packaging). Don't set the hinge tight and you'll be fine. I really like being able to simply remove the bag when fixing a flat."
"Love this saddle bag as I can remove it when fixing a puncture but first one broke the hinge while riding. As suggested on the package a light tie around the saddle is sensible and don't have the hinge too tight. Top marks to wiggle for quick replacement of the faulty first one."
"Does what it is supposed to. Did rub inner thigh when out of the saddle on climbs though. Worth the small hassle to have food there plus a good spot for sunnies on long climbs."
Pros: Lightweight, Good Fit

The Continental Grand Prix series of racing clinchers is the top choice of serious race bike specialists all over the world, and has been for many years. The latest incarnation is the Grand Prix 4000S.
I currently have Michelin Pro3's and although I love the tyre, fitting them Campag rims is a nightmare! So tight!!! I've been on a few web forums and I'm not the only one that's had this problem.
I have a long race in September and the thought of fixing a puncture at the side of the road and trying to refit it with cold, tired thumbs brings me out in sweats!!!
I think you'll find the Campag/Shimano difference is limited to the hubs. I and many friends use GP4000s tyres and every rim is a little different. I currently have Fulcrum 5s and the tyres go on easier than my old Fulcrum 7.
Having major problems getting my medium Look 566 frame to fit in and the case to be able to close properly. Any suggestions?
The cases are tricky to close but it will go. A friend has the same case plus your frame. You'll need to remove the wheels, seatpost, pedals and remove the handlebars from the stem. It should all fit in nicely. Add some padding to keep the bike in good nick. Good luck,
