i do prefer my fizik tape though, i like the firmer feel."

"The elite cages need no introduction. great product.
the bottle is sturdy and well designed. i just bought another of the same design, but larger. I prefer a larger bottle on the seat tube and a short one on the down tube, and this way, they match, and look GREAT!"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Adjustable, Good Fit

"I switched from Cork tape to this, and i love it. the grips feel alot more solid under hand, but there is a tradeoff with comfort over bumpy roads. they do have gel pads that you can use to get a custom fit though.
the range of color is amazing, and its a classy, minimalist look.
highly recommend"

"THe cheapest out front garmin mount, looks great and feels solid. the T25 bolt is annoying (for now, until t25 becomes an industry standard on bikes...) and it doesnt quite center on a KWing Aero dropbar, (cant move it over to the right enough due to the aero bar shape, so it sits slightly off center to the left)
but its awesome to have the garmin in a nice prominent place so you dont have to keep looking down so far. SAFETY."

What are the dimensions of the tape (width x length)?

As well as riding, I also sail. Have long wanted a leather cover for the helm wheel, until the penny dropped that bar tape could be a better solution and make it more sensitive to load variations. Need to cover 4m of 12mm tubing.
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
this is designed to wrap about 2x 0.5m of tubing (handlebars). the 2 pieces are already separate. you will need a heck lot of bartape to wrap your 4m of tubing.

diference between the other SRAM quickview

Is there any difference with another sram quickview that listed on wiggle
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/sram-quickview-computer-mount/

One of them need to select MTB or Road when we need to purchase them

Analysis, inspiration and innovation are the key words behind the development of the Tao, the Tacx superlight streamlined bottle cage. The shape of the bike and its technical components inspired the designers.
 

what is the ultralight?

the tacx website lists three models...the carbon, regular, and lite. the carbon model is carbon...the regular is aluminum...the lite is plastic. which one is this?

many thanks!

Fitting Advice

Hi,

I have been trying and trying to get these to stay on my franme. My bike is a Focus Mares AX1. The bike only has one bottle cage and I am trying to add these to the vertical tube.

I cannot get them to tighten, when I screw the clamp the teeth pop out. It is very frustrating.

Can you please offer some fitting advice.

Kyran

hold down the teeth in place as you tighten. if they are popping through the teeth, youre doing it too tight. it only has to be snug.

An outstanding value road cycling shoe with a sleek, minimal upper for cooling comfort and a stiff glass reinforced nylon sole for efficient pedalling action. The R1.0 is the perfect introduction to performance cycle footwear.
 

2-bolt cleat nuts come with the shoes, how can i use them?

I bought this pair of shoes and the PD-A530 pedals only to realize that they are not compatible out of the box. I noticed the shoes come with a pair of cleat nuts, which I believe is meant for some sort of use for the 2-bolt cleats. The question is how does one fit these nuts to the shoes. Step by step instruction will be helpful. This thing comes with the shoe, I would expect it to be useful. I am aware of the SH-SM85 adapter, but not interested in them.

shame you arent interested in adapters, seeing as thats exactly the item you need..

these shoes are not compatible with 2 bolt cleats.

Fitting SPD cleats

I'm sure I am missing something obvious, but how do you attach SPD cleats to these shoes? Normally, remove inner and screw in, but with these their is a glued down liner preventing you from getting at fitting? They are obviously designed to take them as they have the 2 grooves underneath. It looks as if the plastic in these may come out allowing access, ut reluctant to force to hard in case I am wrong!

these are NOT compatible with 2 bolt shimano cleats.

The redesigned Velo 5 includes 5 popular functions with a large easy to read display and single button operation thanks to a choice of simple or custom wheel calibration.
 

Tyre Size setting

The tyre size of my cycle is 26 X 2.00, which on the instructions with the VELO 5 shows as L = 206mm.
However when I actually measure the circumference of the tyre it is 235cm.
This is confusing as what value should be entered into the computer?
