"Bought Gloss Black version a year ago. Got knocked off - landed hard on back of head. Helmet did its job and I didn't die.
Sadly nice comfy light lid was a write off...
Bought new one in slightly more exciting colour to replace it (Matt Black Fade) and am happy again.
Only con is price..."

Was expecting more of a 'compressive' fit but would still recommend.
Better than running in lycra."

"Love these shoes - they're very light, cool (with lots of vents), stiff as you like and somehow still comfy too.
Arguably they're over-ventilated for UK winter use but that is what overshoes are for.

"These are good and are fuel rather than a pick you up so you don't get the nasty caffeine/sugar crash caused by going into a gel hangover later into the ride.
Happily these aren't sticky either so are comparatively mess-free."

"There was long distance road riding before I started using this and there was long distance riding after but the difference is night and day.
I used to have to ride stood up for much of the 2nd half of a ride due to saddle discomfort and used to think it was down to using the wrong seat. Turns out all I needed was some soothing chammy cream!
Seriously if you get saddle sore use this - probably the biggest single difference maker to my experience of riding long distance."

"As with all chain guides fitting this is a nightmare as component and frame manufacturers are not what you'd call 'on the same page' in terms of clearances etc.
However once fitted I have been delighted with the performance - quiet, strong and my chain does not come off!"

"Fast, grippy and puncture resistant these are not the lightest tyres on the planet but are not too far and the grip and durability characteristics by far outweigh any weight they give up.
Cornering confidence is great even in greasy conditions and I have yet to get a flat even though I ride through London a lot.
In short they're recommended."

Green 2G Poggio P2.0 105

I am told by my local bike shop that the Green 2G Poggio P2.0 105 is not available and doubts whether Wiggle could supply this bike. Is this the case as the bike is available in a 58?

Ridley Orion

I can't help but notice this bike is identical to the Ridley Orion. Almost identical parts (4za brand) and same geometry. Is there any real difference besides the name?

We work with the best manufacturers we can at Verenti to give our customers the best possible quality and value for their money.
We don't normally discuss exactly who these are for professional reasons (although you'd be right in noticing some distinct similarities).
Suffice it to say we're flattered by the comparison and that we are currently working with a 1st Class European partner on the Verenti range of bikes.

All bikes are fully built prior to dispatch.

For international orders we split into 2 boxes. One contains the wheels, the other the rest of the bike.
You'll need to fit the wheels, pedals and stem/bar to re-assemble on delivery.

Tools are provided free in the box.

as it is unisex - can i have female specific seat?

Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
Hi There,

The standard seat is supplied but we can fit whatever seat you like if you add it to your order. However I'd be inclined to try the supplied seat instead of forking out for a women's specific one off the bat as you may be fine on it.

The key is ensuring the bike fits properly so just check out the size guide tab on the page and the workshop will be in touch to confirm once your order is placed.

Thanks

 Z3 Ultegra Di2 2013
Z3 Ultegra Di2 2013
It’s stiff enough for optimal pedaling efficiency yet smooth and compliant to keep you comfortable and riding strong on those long days in the saddle. That winning combination is why many Pros have raced the Z Series at the highest levels of the sport.
 

Where does the Di2 battery mount on this frame?

Are these mounting points also present on the Z4, Z5 & Z6 frames?
Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
Beneath the non driveside chainstay, towards the bottom bracket shell. Not 100% on the other models having mounting points but I believe they do as the Z series is all new this year.
