"Autumn is here; wet shorts - no thanks. After suffering constant rubbing/adjustment with the Crud RR2's last winter, I'm instantly impressed with the RaceBlade.
Easy to fit, able to be adjusted - and the adjustment stays where you want it to.
Downside - anyone behind you still gets wet.
Fitted comfortably to Felt Z95 with 25mm Gatorskins."
Pros: High Quality, Adjustable, Good Fit

"Using these for six weeks now, and I have been impressed. At the front, the flash setting is ideal when riding an urban area and can easily switch to a constant light for rural/country roads.
The Shield rear is bright and clear. Enough said.
Concerns. The small rubber flaps that cover the uSB ports are fragile.
Wholly recommended."

"Using a flat blade screwdriver to remove my stock Felt pads, these Koolstops slotted in easily (yes, Sora 2013 does have a grub screw and accepts Ultegra pads).
Out in the wet the leading edge did a great job of cleaning rims, shifting water to give a progressive braking experience in the wet.
Great investment."

"Replacing stick Felt tyres has been a joy. Firstly Gatorskins smell of rubber (a small thing), they look subtle but are a little hard to fit. Nothing a tyre lever didn't solve.
Reading the direction indicator was hard, but not impossible.
The profile is nice and rounded. They spin up well, hold speed well and run silently compared to stock tyres.
In the wet, I'm already cornering at least as fast as the old tyres while I find their limits.
Impressed."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Good Fit

"After buying the XL I have exchanged it for the L size. I prefer a neater fit. The body of the jacket is great, the arm length is good and it fits nicely over a thermal layer. it has done well in rain and as a windproof layer.
Cons. The bottom of the jacket could do with a rubeer strip to stop it riding up - a small thing"

"The gloves are very comfy with gel pads at your pressure points. They let plenty of air through. I don't like the thin wipe pad and the slightly sticking out fastening tab, as it catches your face when wiping.
Recommended but be aware of the pad."

feemackenzie2's Questions
 
Now available in a choice of three lens options, the dhb Ultralite Sunglasses are comfortable, lightweight and versatile.
 

What is included?

I need to buy new glasses. Do these glasses come with the 4 coloured lenses in the box, or just one?

If just one, how do I order the other colour lenses I want?

Compatibility with Felt F95

Hi, will these fit my Wiggle Special Edition Felt F95 2013, 61cm frame? And more importantly which colour would you recommend? Thanks Jon
I've just fitted them to my Felt Z95 - easy fit, no tools required. A little patience to make the front 'guard align correctly - 5 mins max.

will these mudguards fit my specialized allez sport road bike 2009, there is no clearance under the front wheel. many thanks.

I think so as the front guard sit behind the fork ie: it does not go under the brakes.

Mudguards designed for road bikes with little clearance between bottom of brake calipers (arch) and top of the tyres.
 

Will these fit a 2013 Felt F95?

UPDATE
I have removed the small brushes from inside the mudgaurds, they now fit perfectly. Yes, the brushes should be there but I prefer the silent running sound.

Happy again.

Fitted them to z95 with gatorskin 25 mm and they rub on the back. More tweaking needed as they are a tad annoying at moment.

will these fit trek 2.1 compact 2012 model? The callipers are desribed as alloy dual pivot brakes. Thanks

I think you need to check your brake pads - do the holders have a small grub screw that will allow the old pads to be removed and replaced. if so, then chances are yes.

Sizing

Could you recommend size for me, please? My height is 188, waist 78 cm, hips 93 cm and chest 95 cm.
Best answer
I ordered large and it is slightly generous around arms/chest despite being a bigger build (183cm, 42inc chest and 34inch waist) - would go Medium.
