The number 1 bottle cage in the pro peloton, a true design classic which is also self-adjusting. These cages were used by over half the starting riders in the Tour De France, including Mark Cavendish, Thor Hushovd, Bradley Wiggins and Cadel Evans.

The Aliante Carbon is the top-of-the-line saddle available in this shape. The carbon shell has Twin Flex™ ‘sweet spot’ at the centre and carbon braided rails make this a lighter and stiffer. The increased curvature (support)is ideally suited to Bulls.

"Bought my first proper helmet given the increase in miles I am doing. Having read the previous review thought this looked a good option despite the cost. First impressions were good and made me realise how flimsy my old cheaper helmet was. Been used for a few two hour rides now and found it light and well ventilated. But have found it starts to get uncomfortable towards the end of the ride. Not sure if this is because its a new helmet, I havent fitted it correctly or if its the helmet in general. In hindsight should probably have tried before I bought!"

 Finchdean Brushed Bib Cycling Shorts
Finchdean Brushed Bib Cycling Shorts
The Finchdean shorts use the latest generation of fabrics all featuring highly breathable properties with a perfect anatomical panel design to ensure a snug yet extremely comfortable fit. The Finchdean short uses a seamless stretchy "Silver Dry", "Cool Max" "Gel" Pad. The pad is made with different materials each having their own unique feature. The latest in "Cool Max" fabrics is there to rapidly absorb perspiration and channels it to the outside of the short, keeping you comfortable for longer. The "Silver Dry" Ion feature is a lasting Anti-Bacterial property. Lastly the "Gel" pad design offers superb comfort, anti-shock protection thanks to the "Gel" inserts that eliminate vibrations. The rest of the pad is high density foam with various thickness that offers increased protection where pressure is higher. dhb clothing is used by the riders in Team Wiggle and the Charge Team Riders
 

Are these brushed shorts suitable for summer use or are the normal finchdean shorts better for that?

I use them in summer and have no problems
