The new design also allows better cable routing with less friction (especially on frames with a slanting top tube). Other features include an adjustable tension return spring and toe-in adjustable brake shoe.

"Little to say really.
If your bike has calipers that are ANYTHING other than a 105 or above (or the corresponding campagnolo), get these...
You will not be disappointed."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality

dhb’s Navo baggy short is the perfect alternative to lycra for those daily commutes. Offering a combination of comfort, low key styling and durability. Reflective detailing helps make sure you are seen.

"Ordered a LARGE first, but arms were a little short.
Replaced with XL, and Wiggle replacement order went silky smooth and very very quick!!
The XL fitted very well, and it looks GREAT.
I am 1.79m and 86kgs.
For all those not happy with the sizing, especially that its too small around the waist, I'd tell them this is a ROAD RACE FIT.
You have to be properly fit to take your size in this jersey.
I'm overweight, so went up a size, and it still looks good!
over all, happy with it, and especially happy with Wiggle's quick delivery"

"A little over one month with the bike...
Very happy with my purchase, light, very well specced, and great at acceleration and at climbs as well.
It's sold out now, and at £899 was a good bargain.
Had an issue with the courier company when delivering the bike, but Wiggle sorted it out nicely...
Great bike...and a word of advice to all would be buyers and researchers out there...
Buy a bike with GOOD kit on, Like Shimano 105s etc, and GOOD wheels...Its what will make you happy when riding the bike...
Smooth shifts of gear etc...and good acceleration and easy climbs...
A bit silly to buy a big name brand, at double the cost, with VERY poor and basic kit...it will let the whole experience down....
And if you're thinking...I'll upgrade everything later...you probably won't...as wheels, gears, fitting etc cost a fortune aftermarket..."

odessouky's Questions
 
Saris like to keep it simple, made from injection moulded plastic that is, strong, lightweight and won't rust. With simple soft coated straps and clips to keep your bike secure. A funky simple and easily adjustable design.
 

Will this fit a 2007 BMW 3 Series Saloon. NO SPOILER on my car?

Also, Will this take a CHILD's bike with 18" wheels, and is it safe for CARBON frame bikes?
Thanks

Are the Shimano 105 STI Shifters, Front mech and rear derailer 5700 or 5600?

Just want to know are the 105 components on this bike 5700 or the older 5600?

The size guide is different for this jersey. I am normally an XL in dhb Jerseys. Will this be the same for this jersey?

I have a Momentum and a Mono Jesey.

All I can tell you is that this Momentum is more true to size. Its more relaxed than the Mono.

I have a Mono in XL, and a Momentum in L.

I am 1.79m, and 86kgs

About Sizing

Hi there,
due to my tall and lean build, it is quite difficult to find the best-fitting size.

My body profile:
Height 185cm (72.5inch)
Chest 86cm (34inch)
Waist 80cm (31.5inch)
Weight 65kg (10.2stone)

Which size would be the most suitable for me? thanks
wow!
you are probably slim!
I would say L, for the sake of arms's length.

Cable routing

In the product data, the cable routing is described as "Internal & External Mix". Can you please tell me which cables are internal and which are external?
