"Purchased the Craft 2 bundle in view of the excellent offer
I can say that the Craft baselayer does what it is supposed to do.
It keeps you cool and fairly dry on those hot days out on the bike
Strongly recommended.

"Started running again so I bought these as i read great reviews and always wore Adidas running shoes.
All I can say is that they fit perfectly, are light and very comfortable.
They provide plenty of support to your arches and the grip of the sole is fantastic.

Warm breathable Arm warmers with Castelli's advanced Nano silicone treatment for fantastic water resistance. Nano Flex fabric behaves just like Thermoflex fabric in dry conditions, but provides unbelievable water repellency when it starts to rain.

"Received these arm warmers a few weeks ago and the first ride in the wet was a 100% success. Water just beads and rolls off leaving your arms dry.
Will now look at the other Castell Nanoflex range.i

"Best sub $400 road clinchers from the iconic Campagnolo stable I have owned.
Bought these to replace an old Ambrosio wheel set I had on my Colnago C40 and all I can say is that they are responsive, comfortable, light and very quick for what is really a mid range wheel. You would pay at least $200 more for the equivalent Fulcrum set. Very Satisfied.....

"Excellent tyre for those that like to ride without worrying if you will get a puncture if they happen to ride on not so smooth roads.
I used to use these tyres in their tubular format and always found them to be robust, comfortable and hard wearing. The same applys to the clincher version.

Will this work with the Record 11s rear mech and chain (and indeed a KMC X11-L 11 Speed Chain should I buy that as well)?

I know most 11s systems are compatible, but there might be a ceiling for cross compatibility....?

Cheers
Yes you can use this cassette with the record 11 spd rear mech and a non Campg 11 spd chain.

Which way round do you mount these tyres (front and back), there are no directional arrows.

Look at the outside tread pattern which should be like an arrow pointing forwards
