dhb Classic Women's Roubaix Long Sleeve Jersey
Warmth, comfort and versatility are what you'll get from dhb's Women's Classic Roubaix Long Sleeve Jersey.
"Bought this jersey in the burgundy colour and it looks and feels great. The sizing was just right for me, on the 14 and I find it nice and warm with the micro fleece lining; it's not bulky at all. The neck, wrists and waist are all fitted to keep the wind out and I have been able to wear this out, quite happily, on some chilly early morning rides with a thin base layer underneath. There are 3 ample pockets on the back with another, smaller zipped pocket on the side for keys and valuables, which I really like. Love the retro look too, great stuff dhb!"
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight

When the temperature drops reach for the dhb Aeron Thermolite® socks. They feature the hollow-core fibres of the THERMOLITE® fabric to trap in air and provide warmth and comfort without weight. This means you get excellent thermal performance.
A comfortable cross-season cycling glove made from waterproof, breathable and lightweight materials. An excellent glove for wet and windy conditions. It provides great insulation, maximum freedom of movement along with excellent fit and grip.
"Finally had a chance to test these on my very wet commute today. They are a nice snug fit and the fitted cuff keeps the draught out, while the padding makes for a comfortable grip on the handlebars. They are not totally waterproof but did keep pretty much all of the wet out over a 30 minute ride - towarsd the end I coudl feel them getting a tiny bit damp, however they did kept my hands nice and warm, despite this. These are a good product and beat my old "waterproof" gloves by a country mile. I will look forward to wearing these this winter."
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, High Quality
PowerBar Energize Wafer is the first energy wafer with C2MAX, a scientifically developed, special ratio of glucose and fructose sources. A great tasting, crunchy energy bar choice before and during sport!
"I often find some other brands of energy bars heavy and hard to eat, however these are really good. I loved the peanut and chocolate combination and the wafer is nice and light. Love these and always take one out on a long ride with me now as a welcome snack."
Monitor your pedaling cadence and/or speed as you ride with these easy-to-install wireless sensors. Simply attach the sensors and ride. With no magnets or other exposed parts to line up, these sensors are easy to install, maintain and move between bikes.
"I bought these new speed and cadence sensors a while ago for use on my bike when it's hooked up on my indoor turbo trainer. It's been in the packaging for ages and I have only just now tried to install it on my bike as I have been riding outside but now fancy a bit of winter indoor training. However, the units didn't seem to be working when I installed them, so I changed the batteries, thinking that the ones inside must have gone flat over time. The lights flashed green/red as stated on the instructions but still nothing. The speed sensor won't flash green as the rear wheel turns, which I gather is what's supposed to happen. My Edge 800 won't connect with them, despite me updating the software, going through all the motions suggested on various Garmin boards and I'm just about ready ot throw them in the bin! Maybe they are faulty. The old magnetic GSC-10 sensors worked fine with my Edge 800. Not impressed!"
Cons: Low Quality

DeFeet Dura Cycling High Vis Gloves
A versatile seamless, full-fingered glove with a close fit for just about any cold-weather activity. Dura gloves can be worn as a glove liner in cold conditions or alone on mild morning rides. A year-round essential.
"Plenty warm enough for chilly spring and autumn rides, yet to try them in winter but should be OK, certainly for me as my hands tend to sweat. Grip on palms is great and the hi-viz yellow gives as added bonus, especially when signalling. Does what it says on the tin. Value for money gloves."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Comfortable, Good Fit

Cateye TL-LD600 LED Rear Light
With 5 superbright LEDs, the Cateye TL-LD600 LED Rear Light will make you easily visible to other road users from every angle.
"Cat Eye lights are normally pretty good and reliable and while this has yet to stand the test of time, all of the horrid comments about the mounting of this light are unfortunately true. It IS very bright which is great but it is a big light, much bigger compared to my previous Cat Eye rear light. The fitting it came with looked pretty rubbish so I mounted it (horizontally) on the fixing of my previous light, slotted in nicely but about 5 miles into the ride the mount was working it's way loose. There was also an annoying rubbing sensation on the back of my legs which was the light snagging due to it working it's way loose. After tightening the mount the same thing happened, so in the end I used the shonky looking mount it came with and mounted the light vertically which obviously take up more space. The mount is just a pull tight job rather than a dial that tightens but so far it has stayed in place, probably due to the light being wedged between my rear mudguard and the underside of the seat rather than it actually being any good. All in all, the light is bright but it is too big/wide and the mount is pretty poor. Will be interesting to see how long it lasts based on some of the other reviews."
Pros: bright enough to be seen from space.
Cons: Bulky, Poor Fit

The original natural energy bar. Every Clif bar is packed with a healthy mix of whole grains, protein and fibre, but not with fat, perfect to keep you going whatever your activity.
"Have only tried the peanut butter ones but they are great. Much better than some energy bars which I find way too sweet and sickly, these are YUM! Could eat these any time of day, will certainly be ordering more when these have all been eaten!"
Light, weatherproof overshoes with a 3mm Neoprene construction and thermo welded seams to seal out the wind and rain. When your training plan pitches you against torrential rain and freezing cold, Diluvio (Flood) overshoes keep you dry and in control.
What holes do these have on the sole?
Do these overshoes have a hole for the cleat (I use SPD-SL), and a hole at the back for the heel so they don't get worn out?
