"Whilst not the cheapest tyre on the market they are well worth the money paid. I have used them for commuting and week end rides - NO punctures in 8000KM! No changing inner tubes in the dark/wet /cold - worth it for that alone. Equally they roll really well so its hardly worth changing to 'summer tyres'
As with all tyres , you have to keep them inflated to the correct psi , remove any flints etc that get embedded from time to time and be careful not to pinch the inner tubes when fitting ..the most likely cause of punctures !"
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, Rugged, High Quality

"Good product fits over complete chain/deraileirs and is secured by a velcro strap thus avoiding oil on me/the car interior
I use this product with the wheels off and a dummy chain sprocket to hold the rear derailier in position keeping the chain off the rear stay"

"I bought these wheels in Nov 2012 and have found them excellent , the hubs seem super smooth and until a rear spoke broke earlier this week the wheels have stayed true even with the odd pothole.
Sourcing spare spokes which are bladed has been a pain for 2013 clinchers but after calling i-ride (listed on fulcrums website ) i have found the rear drive side spoke part number is RF0150329 (i-ride ref no) and R3-018 (fulcrum reference) . No mini kits available for 2013 clinchers at the moment. Have been told the above part will be listed on website shortly"
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: replacement spokes not that easy to obtain

"have used this product for a while and it brings the chain back to as new every time, great product if a little pricey.
I use the park chain cleaner with this. 30 crank rotations , empty cleaner, rinse and fill with soapy water and another 30 crank rotations,.then dried with a rag - perfect every time.. One of these bottles will do about 7-8 cleans using the above apparoach so it all depends how many times you clean your chain! Concentrated bike cleaners (i.e. Fenwicks) are nearly as good/can work out cheaper"

"Bought this product as a discounted set.
Easy to use and managed to avoid getting oily hands,
The combination of the tool and citrus cleaner really cleaned the my bike chains better than my more basic ice_tool .
Used Citrus cleaner , rinsed the device andthe put soapy water in for final clean - great finish
You will need the larger 16onz bottle of citrus cleaner depending on how often you clean your chains . The supplied 8onz bottle will probably do about 6-8 cleans (using soapy water for rinse)
Great product - I still use gunk/gizer degreasers on cassettes prior to chain clean"

Fit with pedals?

Hi, I want to purchase a cover to avoid staining my cream carpet when taking the bike up and down the stairs. Does this fit over the chainset whilst the pedals and arms are still attached?

Thanks, Tim

Premium cycling bib shorts from dhb at an astonishing price. Top-level ‘Tour Air’ Elastic Interface cycling pad from CyTech for serious sessions in the saddle. Moisture management ‘Field Sensor’ fabric deals with perspiration fast.
 

Your size guidelines aren't really helping me much. I am looking for some DHB Aeron pro bib shorts but am unsure on sizing.

5 ft 11 tall
32 waist
25 inch thighs.

What size do you recommend?
Large, slightly taller than you but i think medium would be tight. Given they are a snug fit i dont think waist will be an issue in L

DHB Aeron Pro Cycling Bib Short - L or XL?

According to size chart:
Height 6' 1.5" = XL
Chest 43" = L
Waist 36" = L
+ Skinny legs!

Think the straps will be stretchy and I should go for the L???
\I'm the same height as you, Large is fine, any taller i would go XL
