" A bit crap really! Elite used to make great bidons but these feel very thin, the decals wash or rub off then very easily and the newer design of drinking nozzle is just plain awkward.
Buy something else!

" I bought these for my girlfriend and I was most impressed when they arrived, really great looking shoe and great value for money. So much so I am going to buy a pair for myself soon. The sizing is a little weird however, just be careful. I always thought an EU43 was a UK9 - not according to this size guide??? My girlfriend is a UK4 so I got her 38's as per the size guide and they're a little too big! "

" Brilliant item. My newer bike turned out to have a press fit GXP bottom bracket and FSA splined cranks - nightmare I thought? No problem with this tool, got my cranks off easily. Just a shame I'll never use it again though, that's the cranks etc off now and changed to Ultegra set up with Hollowtech II "

Shimano 105

Is it possible to replace the supplied shimano setup with the 105 equivalent
Best answer
Yes easily infact the frame is actually capable of taking Di2 if you wished. To be honest though the 9 speed Sora is as good as 105, the only difference being the number of gear choices. I will run my Sora for a couple of years then probably upgrade to Ultegra, rather than 105 as its just not worth the difference.

Frame sze

Hi, can you advise me on which size frame I would require. I am 5'11" with 32" inside leg and it seems I could be either 53" or 56" frame.
I'm an inch taller than you mate but have pretty much the same inside leg. I went for the 56 and its bang on perfect.

What size- 190cm height and 93cm inside legs

Hi, I am 190 cm with 93cm inside legs so i would like to know which size is better for me.

Thanks
Hi there, I am 183cm tall and have an inside leg of 82.5cm - I have the 56cm frame and it fits me perfectly so I would say you are looking at the next size up from that.
Cheers.

Hello! -I am 179cm tall- inside leg 79cm-armspan 176cm, which size is recommended(53 or 56?)?Thanks!

I am 183cm and have an inside leg of 82cm and I went for the 56 as I like to ride a smallish frame so I would say you are definitely looking at a 56 as well.

What's the correct frame for me? I'm 185cm tall, inside leg 76cm (short for my height) and span of 186cm.

I am 183cm tall with an inside leg of 82cm and I have the 56 frame which is absolutely perfect (Wiggle did a superb job of setting it up for me) It was rideable straight out the box! I would say the 56 would be the one for you as well.

Shimano Tiagra compatibility

I have a shimano tiagra 10 speed cassete.Is this cassette compatible with the wheels or I need to buy spacers?
What freehub should I choose?
Absolutely no problem. I was running 9 Speed Sora. Used the spacer which came with the wheels and they work great - for 10 speed Tiagra you wont need the spacer.

I am 180cm, 72kg, 39 chest. What size would you recommend? I am leaning towards a M as I have these in the Prudential bib shorts which I believe are similar to the Trace bib shorts.
M?? 180cm?? No chance. The sizes are crazy small! You'll need at least a L

Deda design for great performance at an affordable price. Made from 6061 light alloy (3D forged) and features embossed D logo and flip-flop graphics.
 

Oversize bars

Will a 31.7mm stem work with oversize bars? The normal oversize measurement is 31.8mm but I like this deda stem.
Yes no problem at all. 0.1 of a millimeter is hardly measurable in these tolerances anyway!
