The Speed RIDE is the specialist for fast riding on harder surfaces. Whether asphalt, gravel or forest paths, thanks to the diamond-coated tread, the tyre rolls off quickly and quietly.

Heavyweight, neoprene, overshoe for deep Winter use. Tough TPU skin means rain won’t penetrate and thick neoprene gives the best level of insulation against the cold.

Speedplay pedals are incredibly lightweight thanks to intelligent engineering. The engagement mechanism is housed in the cleat, not the pedal, allowing you to have a double sided pedal with one mechanism (rather than one on each side of the pedal).

"have tried various pedal systems and have to say this one is by far the best.. It is very adjustable with 15 degrees of float as standard plus the ability to reduce the float to fit your riding style.
I have done over a thousand miles with them so far and will stay by another set when I get my race bike."

"I have tried multiple pairs of shorts over the years which have all been good. I eventually decided to treat myself to the a pair from Assos. They are more expensive than I have paid before but you get what you pay for. Went for a 70mile ride as soon as I got them and have to say they are the best shorts I have owned. Am now an Assos convert and am slowly adding to my kit!!!!!"

RunningMan69's Questions
 
Are you a serious roadie? Roll up your pant legs, and let's find out. If you're a real roadie, you shave your legs. What's more, you measure what you eat, you obsess about your training regimen, you read everything you can about cycling.
 

Is this ok to store in the garage?

Hi - I am looking for a turbo trainer for winter sessions but will be keeping the trainer in the garage. As a consequence it must be ok to store it at sub-zero temperatures. Is that ok with this model? If not what would you recommend the CycleOps Magneto Pro?

Summer Short Finger Cycling Gloves
Technical Summer gloves with a tailored race fit and advanced Assos fabrics for hot weather performance. The shock absorbing padded palm provides cushioning on long rides and the velcro-less construction slips on and off with ease.
 

How/where is hand diameter measured?

Hand diameter is measured around your hand with a tape measure across your palm. You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed. Do not include your thumb :)
