"I purchased this kit for a 200+km race that included 3 mountain passes. I did not want to change my 53/39 Crank as I use power, so I looked for alternatives and after some research this popped up with reasonable reviews. I run SRAM Red and this worked really well together, even the 32 tooth in action on the +14% gradients. The rest of the gears also worked really well in either ring. Highly recommended when you are climbing steep and long climbs and need to keep your cadence up for long periods of time. It obviously adds weight but the benefits of gearing far outweigh the small weight penalty."
"Windproof and good looking jacket that stuffs in your jersey pocket. I have not used this in the rain yet but in the cold with arm warmers it was fantastic. It does fit in your jersey but is not the smallest jacket and so needs a dedicated pocket. Fits well and looks good."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight

dhb Vaeon Roubaix Knee Warmers
A pre-contoured construction offering a superior fit made from super stretch, brushed Italian Fabric. (This product was formerly the dhb Pace Roubaix Knee Warmers.)
"Good looking and comfortable knee warmers. I used these over a very long 200+km race and they were a great fit, comfortable and more importantly kept my knees warm in the mountains. I am usually a medium and purchased a small because of the other reviews and the small was spot on - go one size smaller. Highly recommended."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Good Fit

dhb Light Weight Cycling Sock 14cm
Get fully kitted out with the new summer dhb unisex cycling socks. Available in 4 colours and 2 height options these lightweight COOLMAX socks are incredibly comfortable and functional.
"I have only had my new trainer for the past 3 weeks but so far so good. I have done 1 min intervals and 2 hr rides on the trainer so far and have enjoyed the feel. All the reviews state that it feels as close to riding on the road and I would agree with this compared to other trainers. When doing the 1 min intervals the trainer gets pretty noisy because of the effort but feels stable with a good roll and zero slipping. When cycling at normal speeds it is fairly quiet. The winter kit is also definitely worth considering,
All in all so far very happy with my purchase and also the speed that the trainer was shipped to me."
Pros: High Quality, Good Fit

Great power computer
Posted11 October 2011
"After using the yellow cycleops powertap computer and getting frustrated with the usability this Garmin has been a pleasure. One point to note is that you need to upgrade your powertap wheel to ANT+ by purchasing a seperate upgrade device from Cycleops if your powertap is pre 2008 or does not have the + on the hub."
