"It's a simple device that's effective.
Just the right hardness to roll across sore muscles.
Can't think of anything in the house more suitable that'll do the job.
I've even tried shopping trolley handles.
It is however expensive for what you get which is essentially some hard foam on a plastic stick.

"Simple item but one that is very important if you ride daily.
This is my second one because I bought a new rucksack and need a larger cover.
The first one was orange and now this one yellow.
After 2 years of daily use for the first one, it's still as good as new.
The elastic may have become longer(looser) but still functions fine.

The cannibal is designed to devour your bottle just as it's namesake used to devour his opponents. The huge entry point allows very easy insertion, especially in race situations when you need to get your bottle stowed quickly.

"Thought I'll add a bottle holder to my MTB that doesn't have anywhere to mount bottles.
On first ride over bumpy terrain, one bottle flew out.
Next thing you know, the whole cage falls off.
I've tightened the clamp on this to the point where the plastic/ rubber material bend.
Poor design.

"I've used all sorts of brands and this one is my favourite.
It's great for dry days and for wet rides.
I normally ride a few times a week and will only really need to reapply around once every 3 weeks.
In the rain, it still stays on.
In the dry, the chain's cleaner than any other brands.

It's a rather small bottle so might be worth your while just getting non bike-branded degreaser from your local auto spares shop.

Great Lube Although Too Thin

"This lube provides great lubrication and comes in a nice yellow color so you can see where the lube has gone.
The problem with this lube is firstly, it's very running. It's so thin that when you apply it onto your chain and spin backwards, you see so much of it flicking off the chain and making a mess everywhere.
Secondly, you'll need to clear the chain really well before it can go on then leave another 3 - 4 hours before you can ride it.

The fit is tight but normal tight, not Castelli tight.

Do these pedals face a certain side up?

Are the pedals weighted at all to face a certain way up?

No. It's random. There's no heavier side.
