"I bought these for commuting when they where in the sale (£25)./ Have used them for a few months and they are comfortable and the soles are stiff enough that any effort goes through the pedals.
One word of warning - check the size guide as they are half a size out from the normal , from memory the UK 11 is actually around 10.5...so i went one size up (normally a true 11) and they fit perfectly"
Pros: Comfortable, Great Value, Rugged

"Well made light unit that can be seen from a great distance. The light switch is a bit fiddly to operate when fixed to the bike especially if you are wearing gloves
The strap split after 8 weeks use but wiggle quickly replaced the unit and the replacement has been fine. You need to make sure the rubber strap is not twisted as i think this probably leads to the strap splitting"
Pros: Attractive, Rugged, Good Fit
Cons: fiddly switch

"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"

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

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
