IsoGel is a great tasting sports fuel for a burst of instant energy. It has a lighter drink-like consistency for easy consumption and absorption. The classic sachet with a rip-off top makes it ideal on the move for cyclists and runners alike.

"The Las Squalo helmet is easy to adjust with a rear wheel,allowing for a large range of adjustment. Netting inserts covering all the inside of the helmet allows less pieces to be removed for washing,and gives more coverage than individual sponges-also more durable. Aerodynamic look with plenty of aeration-good for keeping cool. (use winter pads for cold)"

is the vitoria open pave evo cg suitable for 700x23

yes-unless a rider is very light-24mm or 25mm are better all around on the back(i.e. a wider tyre is more stable,has more wear and may allow lower tyre pressure and more comfort.)

Will these tyres fit my wheels

I've got some Zipp 404 clinchers and was wondering if these will fit? Will they be suitable for training?
Good for training-fairly tough,but a little slippery in wet

Are these a folding tyre?

I bought some of these a few weeks ago and couldn't fit them as they were very flat, are folding tyres easy to fit?
not always easy. try 1:stretching them out to a more round shape,2:preferably don't have the tyre cold,3:once partially on the rim-try stretching from the far side of the wheel-pulling the tyre around the wheel(along rim),and towards you-trying to pull the tyre into the centre of the rim-finishing at the last section of the lip of tyre that you havn't got into the rim yet'4:pop on gloves for extra grip-no levers.,

 EA70 Clincher Wheelset 2010
EA70 Clincher Wheelset 2010
The EA70 is the next generation of Easton's most popular wheel set, the Circuit, and is the new standard for bang-for-the-buck performance! The EA70 is the clear-cut choice for racers and enthusiasts looking for a boost in speed, performance, hand-built reliability and ride quality. Easton wheels are meticulously tuned by skilled craftsmen to achieve uniform spoke tension. This simple procedure vastly strengthens the wheel and greatly reduces spoke failure. Further, it allows us to sufficiently tension the spokes so that the wheel has the compound attributes of light weight, stiffness, and durability. The spokes are only one aspect of the wheel that sets us apart. Every aspect of the wheel, from bearings to nipples, has been refined and improved. Wheel building is as much art as it is science. High, uniform spoke tension is necessary to build strong wheels that stay true. Nothing does this better than experienced human hands. It's a painstaking process. Easton's systematic approach to precision tensioning and truing sets the standard in the industry.
