"I bought this for my girlfriend, trying to find a good cold weather top for her....
When she tried it on, the fit was fine on her body, but the arms were comically baggy!
To fit this jersey, you'd have to have bigger arms than arnold schwarzenegger but with a normal torso!!!
Note to Wiggle: There must be something wrong with either the pattern or the manufacturing process on this jersey, the arms were comically baggy... i've never seen anything like it in all the years I've been buying cycling gear!"
"Brilliant little pump, easily the best mini pump you can buy, secured to the frame by a mount that sits under the water bottle (standard), really easy to pump the wheel, really well made, feels really sturdy and brilliant for roadside punctures, super lightweight for a pump of it's size and small enough to not get in the way.... I've tried loads of frame pumps and Lezyne are the best by a long shot. Really good design for both valve types and fits secure. One thing i really like is that the pump has a flexible hose so it's not going to break your valve tips when pumping the tyre up and easier to pump."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Rugged, Lightweight, Versatile, Good Fit

Castelli Nanoflex Bib Knickers
Water resistant coverage for mud-caked cyclocross courses and cold, wet road rides. Nanoflex bib kinckers feature a spray resistant surface treatment, a Kiss3 seat pad and a warm Thermal fabric construction for comfort and insulation.
"I've been using these all winter along with a pair of ski socks for full leg cover.... They are waterproof to an extent, but even in soaking conditions they keep your legs warm enough thanks to their nice thick thermal fleecy inner material.
The pad is brilliant, very comfortable, I've ridden over 2000 miles this winter wearing these and ski socks and never felt I needed anything more.... I would love and my treat myself to the full leg version for next winter and keep these for more mild winter days and spring riding.
Perfect product, for the money, they are unbeatable, I highly recommend them, they are very durable and I have got a lot of use from mine. I also really like the understated look from these
Size wise, I am a 34" waist, and 6ft2", 95kg and I have the XXL version which fits perfect."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Rugged, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Versatile, Good Fit

Altura ProGel Bib Shorts 2013
Performance lycra cycling shorts for summer days out on the saddle. Featuring cool mesh bibs and a ProGel Seatpad for cushioning and comfort on long endurance training rides.
"I'm 6ft2", 100kg, 36" waist, 43"chest.... I got size XXL, the shorts fit well, but the bottom of the legs is a bit loose making the grippers a bit pointless.
The chamois is big, it's quite comfortable and well padded, not the best, but not the worst either.
The quality; I ride 26miles daily, after just over one month and 1000 miles these shorts are not in great condition. There are a few holes in the seems and the lycra between the legs has excessively worn out from being on the bike.
Not massively impressed, I wouldn't recommend them if you do regular riding, if you're a casual cyclist looking for a bit of extra comfort they are great.... For regular fitness training or commuting, they're a bit rubbish.
I will keep these for bad weather riding from now on as they're a bit destroyed."
Light, weatherproof overshoes 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) overshoes keep you dry and in control.
What holes do these have on the sole?
Do these overshoes have a hole for the cleat (I use SPD-SL), and a hole at the back for the heel so they don't get worn out?
