Zipp developed the Tangente™ High Performance Cork Brake Pad as a response to the intense heat caused by braking on carbon. The Tangente pad may be used on any tubular or clincher rim with a carbon braking surface, but never on aluminium braking surfaces

"Great for cooler weather riding, these bibs are great quality with a comfortable chamioux. If you usually take a medium order a large. Even large is a little tight on me although I'm getting used to them now."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

The popular all-rounder Rubino has the perfect mix of features for most amateurs, with the endurance for the toughest challenges. These tyres are robust 60 TPI nylon casing, have a technical tread pattern and long life tread compound.

"I decided to try the slightly wider 700x25c tyre on the rear of my training/commuter road bike to see if it gave a more cushioning effect. I don't know if it's just psycological but using a 25c does seem to make the ride more comfortable.The Vittoria Rubino's are always my first choice in terms of value for money, puncture resistance and durability. Only problem I have had with them is I seem to wear them out fairly quickly and one tyre had a delamination when it was quite new. Other than that they're great. Not suitable as a race tyre though unless you're doing a Roubaix type race"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Rugged, Good Fit

"I wasn't sure whether to go with a head or handlebar mount. The Edge GoPro handlebar mount worked a treat, no problems with video quality at all. Can be mounted under the bar so it's not in the way."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Rugged, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: hard to line up screw holes

Just purchased a couple of these tyres, but can't find a travel direction indication on the tyre. Which way should they be fitted?

Put your tyres on so that the "V" in the tread partern is facing in the direct you are travelling. In other words when you look at the tyre from behind on the rim the arrow head of the "V" should point forward.
