"Not much to say about this - it unscrews the bit it's meant too. Make sure you loosen the bolts that hold the crank onto the bottom bracket before trying to use this tool - that caught me and a few others out first time."

"I've used this light all through the winter (on flashing mode) and have only had to change the batteries once. Easy to fit to the bike and small enough to carry in the bag for emergencies. The light is nice and bright so will catch attention but won't light your way."
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Versatile

"I've been running this tyre for the last year with a daily commute of 6 miles each way. In that time I've had one puncture and the tyre still has plenty of tread left to go another year.
They are heavy relative to other tyres but the peace of mind offered by the extra puncture protection is worth it."
Pros: Durable, Rugged
Cons: heavy

Correct sized tyre?

My paper-round sons are down to one bike at the mo due to huge numbers of punctures. Looking at the Marathon Plus Tour Wired for replacements. The tyre size that came with the bike I need to repair first was 54-559 (26 X 1.95) but the size shown on the tyres you sell is 26 X 2.0 - would this tyre be suitable??

Also which inners do you recommend?
many thanks
The tyre will be fine it's pretty much the same size so frame clearance won't be a problem - your talking about a 0.05 inch difference. Recommend this tyre to sort the puncture problem.

As for inner tubes I've used the Continental ones - doesn't really matter which brand but make sure the tube is the right size. The ones I have are for 26" wheels from 1.75 - 2.5" tyres.

Adding reflecters

The UK Highway Code states peddles MUST have reflectors - do they come with reflectors? If not, what options are there to add reflectors and make these pedals legal to use on the road?
I just bought a pair and they came with reflectors. You have to add them yourself and (as someone else has commented) it looks like they make it difficult adjustment the tension.

what size would fit my rock shox recon gold tk 120mm

I expect this would be a small.

If you look at the sizing tab it tells you how to work out the correct size by measuring your fork with a ruler.
