"Cheaper to buy a whole new unit rather than replacement bearings for the old hub, not to mention that it is just about impossible to get the old bearings out successfully anyway.
Simple to fit and restores the wheel to just about original conditions.
"
Pros: Good Fit

Light, weatherproof cycling gloves 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) gloves keep you dry and in control.

"These are probably suited to cooler climates than western Australia. In the rain they allow plenty of water in and then act like a wet suit to keep your hands warm which is probably as intended. If it is not raining they get uncomfortably sweaty but not very warm even with a thin liner glove -this was on a morning where the temperature nudged zero which is about as cold as I have to put up with.
Fit was per the sizing.
Design was nice and bold."
Pros: Attractive
Cons: sweaty

The short carbon fibre body construction offers low weight, is super stiff and offers efficient power transfer. The PD-6800 features many of the same technologies as the flagship Dura Ace pedals with the PD-6800 only weighing 8g more.

"These pedals feel far lighter out of the box than my old 105 pedals. Nice wide platform which should transmit the power effectively, but I am yet to see any increase in power or speed myself....
Easy to fit using just an Allen key followed by torque wrench - no need for a pedal spanner with these which sadly means the shiny Lezyne pedal spanner I bought at the same time has been used to remove the old 105 pedals and then hung on the peg board probably never to be used again.

"Everything required to repair tubes:
8 patches and enough glue to use all of them, a cheese-grater type sander to scuff the tube and even a tyre boot.
Other comments about patches being too large must be for very skinny tubes. They are a perfect match to the latex tubes I run.
Many riders appear to throw away tubes when the flat but I collect my tubes and batch them up for a repair session doing three or so at once. Sometimes I even grab other peoples old ones and fix those too and these then can be given back to your mates when they run out on a ride - a good way to earn a recovery ale or two.

"High quality workshop tools are a blessing and these tick all the boxes. Every size required for your bike is included. Each wrench has a ball end for those awkward to reach spots and also longer arms than many cheaper units which allow you to get a decent amount of torque if required, noting that you really should use a torque wrench when tightening items."
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

"Very solid and beautifully machined - this certainly won't wear out in several lifetimes unless you make a hobby out of changing bottom brackets for fun.
Like most Lezyne tools this is a bit of kit you want to leave on display rather than in the tool box. It has one flaw - unlike most other bits of their kit it does not include any method for opening a beer bottle.

The Racing Zero is the top wheelset of the Fulcrum aluminium range. Its extraordinary performance features and high impact aesthetics make it stand out from the crowd. Also new, is the mega-drive hub flange and a great new graphics makeover.

Race level road cycling shoes built on Shimano Dynalast Technology for improved energy transfer and efficiency over long distances. The R170 features a hollow channel carbon sole for stiffness and lightness and a supple, ventilated syntheic/mesh upper.
 

I'm not sure what is the sole made of

The info about the shoe shows two different informations:
- In the features of the shoe: "Lightweight carbon fiber sole construction for excellent stiffness to weight ratio incorporating adjustable cleat mounts"

- But if you read the materials you see:
Sole Material: FG Concept - Nylon/Fiber Glass

So what is the sole made of?

The number 1 bottle cage in the pro peloton, a true design classic which is also self-adjusting. These cages were used by over half the starting riders in the Tour De France, including Mark Cavendish, Thor Hushovd, Bradley Wiggins and Cadel Evans.

Hhi, are the surface graphics printed on or stuck on (ie. potentially able to be peeled off)?

Thanks,

Keep your feet warm without the hassle of a full shoecover. Made from super-durable neoprene, Castelli toecovers slip easily over the front of your shoe and are held in place by the cleats.
 

Are these sold as a pair or individually?
