Better fit on the sleeves this year?

The design on last year's RideLondon 100 jersey was great, but the sleeves were absurdly baggy (like a T-shirt rather than a cycling jersey).

Has this issue been addressed for the 2014 jersey? It would be a nice souvenir, but I'd quite like to wear it on rides other than casual local run-arounds.
Yes fitting is great.

The Joe Blow Max II is a great performing track pump that is superb value for money. providing efficiency and accuracy throughout its pressure range, the whole way up to 120 psi.
 

Once pumped, is the pump easy to disconnect from the inner tube valve?

I currently have a pump which is very hard to disconnect after pumping and it is ripping my inner tubes apart when i have to yank it off once its pumped. Plus it means my hand flies into the spokes which are bladed and this is not a pain free experience.
yes. I have had no problems disconnecting just move lever to the mid position and remove from valve

Which way do you press the lever when you attach the head to the tyre valve?

For some reason the instructions which are provided with the product don't explain very well how to use it. Have a look at this video instead.

Video from the manufacturer (Topeak) explaining the pump head
The lever goes in the opposite direction

Hi just wondering would it be ok to put felt ar5 on this trainer ,would carbon frame be ok?tks

I have a carbon frame bike and I use it on this Turbo with no problem I just change the QR of my bike and use the QR that came with the Turbo as it is steel and not an alloy that I have on my wheelset.

Speedplay Coffee Shop Covers snap over the cleats to make walking easier & to protect your cleats. They keep dirt & mud out of your Light Action, Zero or X-Series cleats when you are off the bike, & give you traction when walking on uncarpeted
 

which should be chosen.

I had Zero titanium nanogram.
I want to know which should be chosen Light Action Range, X range or Zero range.
zero range. ( light to light, zero to zero etc.)
