"Used to ride without any Cream. Didn't really have any issues but now cant ride without it.
Chammy cream is one of those things that you have to try it to want it. But once you have used it its fantastic.
Good consistency and doesn't get uncomfortable just works in the background to make you that little more comfortable."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality

"Quality chain links that are as essential everyday as they are in your saddlebag.
Makes cleaning etc so much easier but also always be sure to carry a couple in your saddlebag with a chain breaker. They are greatly convenient and inexpensive, pack a couple and cover the broken chain scenario with ease."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Versatile

"Having finally sorted out my Saddlebag mess I got a Topeak QR Wedge Pack with Tools, and a second Fixer bracket.
Excellent combo. Fixer bracket holds the whole package very securely, 1 Tool Set, 1 Tube, 1 C02 Inflator 2 Canisters and a Puncture repair kit, fair bit of weight but no rattling, very sturdy I was previously worried about it not being very secure but all is fantastic.
Highly recommend spending a decent chunk on one well kitted out Saddlebag and a couple of QR brackets.
It may be a fair outlay for something that will sit idle, but when you have to call a taxi for 1 ride home 60 miles away you'll realize that that fair was the real waste of money!"

"After running through 2 Cateye lights due to battery connections rusting I decided id try my hand at re-chargeable.
Fantastic light, its REALLY BRIGHT. will be seen from miles off, fantastic set of modes.
Can mount and dismount on my saddle bag which is a great convenience and prevents the rain from getting to it unless its really necessary. Recharge-ability is great also, if you are disciplined with it you'll never have to ride that ride home in the pitch black with a flat light.
Recharge connection seems really well waterproofed also so seems like it will last a long time. Feels like an absolutely quality bit of kit."

"A Quality BB Assembly from SRAM. As long as they are installed correctly with common sense they will last a long time.
Install with a good Quality Marine Lube for longer life in British weather. Especially for any winter bikes.
Quality free spinning bearings, as with all things preparation and applied knowledge with experience is what makes the difference in lifespan."

Warm breathable Arm warmers with Castelli's advanced Nano silicone treatment for fantastic water resistance. Nano Flex fabric behaves just like Thermoflex fabric in dry conditions, but provides unbelievable water repellency when it starts to rain.

"These are a fantastically versatile set of arm warmers for Spring and Autumn. Going for a Gillet and Arm warmers or a short sleeve softshell on those colder days with a good set of arm warmers is essential kit where the temps can rise throughout the day.
These arm warmers are the best around for covering you for the downpours we often experience.
Arm length is long but they are a much tighter fit up the top end which is great for smaller riders like me 5'10" 65kgs. Went for a medium.
Nice fleece lining. Rather large seam but once they are on I haven't had it bother me at all and never been uncomfortable.
Recommend highly as essential British kit along with a Short Sleeve Gabba."

"Great source of Portable energy absolutely essential to get a good amount of carbs in the latter stages of the long rides.
Energy from Food and Gels just isn't going to cut it for centuries. Sachets provide the convenience of long rides in winter where there are only a couple of shops or a cafe for some water.
Bit Bulky and Price is not great value but they are not for everyday use so its worth the investment."
Pros: High Quality

Recommended for use with SRAM's Force and Rival groupsets. The new PowerGlide™ 1070 cassette offers an innovative approach to 10 speed cassette design.
 

Cassette - chain combination

In the info for the product it states that it works best with PC1090R, 1090, 1070 etc. However in stock you seem to only have 1091R, 1071 etc. Their description seems to indicate that it's not an issue but wanted to check. Also chains seem to come in different lengths. How do I know what number of links I need? I'm planning to buy a 12-28 and have a front compact chainset 50-36.

Chains are XXX1 and cassettes are XXX0. Just add a 1 to the end of the cassette number to get the equal level chain, or increment the chain number from there i.e. for the PG1070 cassette you want a 1071 chain or 1091.

Going down would mean a lower quality chain than the cassette which is ok but not optimal.

The number of links is measurable from your existing chain, on a road bit it will be the smallest available anyway. I tend to need to cut off 3-4 links. Check Youtube for videos that explain all this.

High performance full finger road cycling gloves with a slim, aerodynamic fit and a WINDSTOPPER softshell fabric back for and an extended wrist for full windchill coverage. A top quality piece for dedicated, year-round cyclists.
 

Eye spy?

Just wondering if the detailing on these gloves is reflective at all?

What is the range of temperature for these gloves?

Is there any designed/adequate temperature for the product?

I find I'm comfortable from 3*-12* anything lower or at <5 I tend to wear a liner glove along with my other face/undershirt liners which takes it really far south to less than 0* and makes it more comfortable than a thicker glove.
