Waterproof cycling gloves with reflective print for increased visibility on winter commutes. Night vision Evo gloves include a velcro cuff closure and an insulating liner glove for warmth and comfort. Perfect for the committed year-round cyclist.

"Using the size guide my hand measures 20cm which puts it at the bottom end of M size. Gloves arrived and were hard to get on, definitely too small, so i sent them back and ordered a large, they arrived a week later. I could get them on ok so took them for a trial ride in about 0 degrees C, with inner and outer gloves on my fingers were slightly constricted and soon became very cold, they should go back again but having worn them and not fancying another week wait I've kept them. They make two very nice pairs of gloves but aren't wearable doubled up. If you want to try them I suggest getting 2 sizes up from what the guide recommends."
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality
Cons: Expensive, Poor Fit

Shimano's new Direct Mount Rear Derailleur system gives more space around the rear frame dropout resulting in easier rear wheel removal but also allows frame designers to shorten chain stays, increase axel sizes and move suspension pivots
 

shimano-deore-xt-m786 - cassette upgrade?

I bought this to use on a 9 speed shimano alivio hg30 cassette assuming if it covered 10 it would do 9, it won't reach the 2 smallest sprockets however. if i upgrade to a deore 9 speed cassette would that fit the same hub? and work with the xt mech? (full 10 speed upgrade is in the pipeline but couple months away)

 Stripes Wiggle Exclusive Bib Shorts
Stripes Wiggle Exclusive Bib Shorts
Castelli have engineered in their famous anatomic cut and some of their best features like Affinity Lycra® fabric, GIRO3 leg gripper, minimalist mesh straps and their newly updated KISS3 seatpad.
 

Is the picture wrong?

Hi, is there any chance that the picture shown is not the "Stripes" shorts? After all, the pictured shorts don't have any stripes on them. Also, is it really possible that there isn't a fluro pair to match the jersey? That would be a catastrophic oversight!
Best answer
just received this and it is different to the one pictured, the one received is labelled team bibshort 8500106, it looks like the one on the right here: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/castelli-free-aero-race-milano-wiggle-exclusive-bib-shorts/
