Swissstop Flash pro brake pads, with their black compound, provides great braking on alloy rims and also suited for softer alloys including magnesium. Suitable for less aggressive riding, very good in dry and wet conditions.
"Thought I'd spend more to get improved performance but it went the other way. Worse braking and wore out quicker"
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Wears Out Easily

Waterproof Backpack SS11
The Orca Waterproof Backpack is a popular multipurpose bag for active people that can be used for everything from going to the gym, to taking your gear to and from transition. The dive/cycle courier style bag is constructed from tough and durable PVC, and has a top which can be rolled up and locked ...
"A near miss for me. The very thick material is probably too tough for daily use and does not suit the closure method of bending the clasps together at the top. Plus you don't need the handle this provides because the bag has a top handle already. The bag would close easier and look altogether better if the roll top buckles fastened down the sides. For some reason it also seems to ride quite high on your back so I'd say it would be better narrower and longer in shape.
Otherwise it's an ultra tough v waterproof bag which is quite stylish (I like black & white) and has good padding.
A bag like this made from neoprene coated nylon like dry bags would be a great compromise between toughness and weight."
Can I fit this to the 105 hanger on my road bike? Have dyna sys 11 32 cassette running with med cage 105 mech and am changing to 11 34 to manage long sportives with 30% hills better

Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Evo V-Guard Folding Road Tyre 2013
As tyre designers, Schwalbe say the Ultremo is the pinnacle of their ambition. ZX - The best ULTREMO ever!
If I got 23mm would they fit on Fulcrum racing 7 rims which i think are 24mm. Everyone I ride with has narrower tyres - currently I have michaelin 25mm (?) which look v big. What do you think about thickness of tyre?
