"The usual excellent Wiggle service. Great website, easy to compare products, delivery as promised.
These tyres are terrific, very low rolling resistance, but substantial build quality, no more punctures for a while!
Other reviews suggested they were hard to fit first time, well these weren't, they just popped on easy."

The balaclava is a serious solution to combat extreme cold on any winter ride.
 

can the opening be pulled down under chin? (leaving face uncovered)

My son tends to suck the fabric so having a version that will go under his chin works best. Is the opening wide enough / stretchy enough to do this? I have a fantastic north cape balaclava that we share but I can't find another to buy so I'm looking for a different make that does the same thing!
Yes, good stretch on the fabric

Need tubes with tyres?

Hi - Before purchasing the Continental GP 4000S Tyre twin pack - wanted to find out this comes with tubes as well

If not - I will need a "matching" set of tubes, or if I can reuse my existing set of tubes (same tyre size of course).

Thanks
No the twin pack doesn't come with tubes, but any good quality tubes to fit your wheel will be fine. You can reuse your old tubes, I have !

I'm 5'9" with a 32" inside leg, would the medium be a bit too big for me?

Ask Wiggle, they will advise.

Large or medium

Yes Large, I am 6'2", 33" leg and Wiggle set it up perfrectly for me
