"Great road shoes. Nice wide fit and adjustable. Have worn them on a 200 mile ride on a really hot day and they were still OK at the end of the ride. Not too bad in the wet either, water can get out of them."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, High Quality, Lightweight

"You see these in shops, they're really good for holding your bike up when you're lightly fettling it or washing it, when you can't be bothered getting the workstand out. Props up my road bikes (rim brake and disc) and mountain bike (29er, disc)."

"As title really. Used them for commutes twice a day and club rides at weekend 3 out of 4 seasons, obviously nothing's totally waterproof but light rain does run off and when they get wet they stay warm, bit like neoprene gloves. Warm and windproof down to about 6 celsius on their own."

"These things are only there to provide a bit of crash protection as the unit itself is IPX7 anyway. Tested it this weekend, direct impact at 32 mph and the Garmin still works. Can;t ask for more than that really."

"I've always struggled to find decent short finger gloves, but these are excellent. Good padding, fit as advertised, great price. The snot wiper could maybe be more absorbent but other than that these are fantastic summer mitts. Bought two pairs, one for weekend, one dayglo for commuting."

The Rapid Rob is a top choice for rookies. Using the old Racing Ralph tread but used for a new purpose. With Schwable's K-Guard belt under the tread to increase puncture resistance makes it attractive option for beginners.

 HL-EL530 LED Front Light
HL-EL530 LED Front Light
The EL-500 was the brightest normal battery front LED by a mile, but harnessing the very latest LED technology, Cateye's new EL-530 surpasses this by 50% with no price increase!!!
 

Suitable for night mountain biking?

I need to know if it is up to the shocks and bumps of the trail and if it is suitable for this.

It's all right for commuting but you might find it a bit dim for trail use.

Mounting for HL-EL530

Hello,
I have this front light (HL-EL530) but my bike was stolen and I need a new mounting kit. Can I buy just the mounting?
Thank you.

Yes, the mount is available separately. This is the link to it on Wiggle:

OK on Tortec Ultralite?

Has anyone tried these on the Tortec Ultralite rack? In particular do the rather 'skeletal' bars on the Ultralite support this rather narrow bag OK and does the 'umbrella handle' bottom fixing lock on alright?

Get off road with the very sturdy mountain bike shoe from dhb. The M1.0 features a Simple 3-strap closure and a rubber outsole with internal glass reinforced Nylon structure for excellent traction and great power delivery.
 

Do these come with a cover over the holes for the cleats?

May want to use them with flats so wondered if they come with covers for the cleat holes that can be removed/inserted?
