"Best bottlecages I've used, light strong and fantastic bottle retention.
I ride roads, trails and single track and not a hint of rattle or vibration.
I use with camelbak podium bottles ( varying sizes according to ride duration) because of their leak proof seals for our 3rd world british roads etc ,and have swapped to the from specialized and elite bottle cages to these for all my bikes."
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Rugged, Lightweight

"Which is good. You don't want to be conscious of a pair of glasses stuck on the end of your nose. These sunglasses fit excellently , are hard wearing and, with great interchangeable lens options can be used year round. They were a replacement for my first pair of Rydons which lasted 5 years.
I have a few other pairs of cycling glasses but always end up picking up these before each ride

"Applying the #N+1 rule about how many bikes should be owned I was looking for something to complement my Di2 Cannondale road bile and Felt Nine 2 29er. This really fits the bill. Fantastic comfort and great turn of speed on road and ideal for trails and green lanes ie Tarka Trail or French Green lanes. Cant fault the bike and like the quirky looks and the flared bars are great.
Worth knowing that fit is large so a 56cm bike will feel more like a 58 or 59.

Super-stretch, low volume winter gloves that render traditional cycling winter gloves obsolete. Total dexterity, perfect braking and shifting, secure handlebar grip, shock-absorbing gel inserts and, last but not least, ideal insulation.

"Good fit and breathability. Long cuff minimises draughts and seems at least showerproof. Could do with a bit more tackiness on palmswhen on flat bars otherwise perfect."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

"Fitted these with latex tubes on dura ace tubeless compatible rim for a 100mile coast to coast in Cornwall during the early November storms and they were exceptional in terms of grip, feel, great comfort and without any compromise on speed in torrential conditions which even included a dash down the Camel trail to Padstow fom Bodmin without any damage to rolling surface or sidewall.
Not overly difficult to fit either.

Do these shoes come with spare laces and dials? What are the laces made of?

I have owned expensive shoes with boa dials and laces previously and experience has taught me that they are not long wearing closures.
No But Boa (USA) do a great spares service ( often free) which I order so I can carry around in case the worst happens.
Only one failure in 4 years of regular riding.

Which way round do you mount these tyres (front and back), there are no directional arrows.

Tyre labels are always on the drive side as they are directional. This should help
