The true workhorse of the DeFeet wool range, the Woolie Boolie 2 6" Cuff Socks are extremely versatile, from riding to running to sleeping in them. The 6" higher cuff provides greater warmth and the improved fit provides greater arch support.

This device clamps into the rear stay (drive side) and keeps the chain in place making it easy and less messy for you when you are transporting your bike to and from the car or if hanging on the wall in the shed/home.

 Vittoria Latex Inner Tube
Vittoria Latex Inner Tube
The Vittoria Latex road inner tube is a must have cycling essential for 700c bike wheels if you like watching your bike weight. Latex tubes will require pumping up more often as due to the material used in construction, air seeps out slowly over time.

" Great, Low cost way to improve ride quality. Reasonably light weight at 84g for the 25-28cc model. Easy to fit. Typical with other latex tubes will lose pressure over a few days do to the permeability of latex, but no problem - just pump the tyre up with a track pump before each ride to the correct pressure. "
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight

" Having already owned a DHB merino baselayer (zipped neck version) I was hoping for a similar fit from this garment. Unfortunately the arms were short (for someone with longer than usual arms), and the neck quite wide. The quality of the merino is very nice, and finely woven. Fit is on the small size, compared to the fitting guide, so consider sizing up (med was to small for 40 "" chest). Hopefully on next seasons product run they'll make this with longer arms, and then I'd definitely purchase "
Cons: Poor Fit

Great Belt, with a bonus tool tube

Age : 35-44
Interest : Road Cyclist
Level : Regular
Gender : Male
" Two great products in 1 - first there's the belt - easily cut down to size, and very subtle styling. Second there's the tool tube - great way to carry multi tool, tube, tyre levers gas jet pump etc in the seat tube bottle cage, without loading your pockets down. All in all, a great gift for yourself, or any cycling fan - a good value package for two quality products "
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, Great Value

" Having used all my "udderly smooth" it was time to get another tub. Thought I'd give the Morgan Blue a try due to their products being used by many of the pro teams #nothing wrong with udderly, just wanted to try the Morgan Blue#. Used the MB a few times, and it's fine - light consistency, large tub at 200ml, so should last a while - well worth a try "

" Good quality baselayer - Purchased a medium, and it's slightly closer fitting than an icebreaker baselayer of the same size. Body length is adequate - sleeves could have done with being about 1 or 2 cm's longer in my opinion for my long arms. Hasn't shrunk in the wash - a good quality piece of kit at an attractive price "

Leaky?

I find this much leakier than my Elite bottles - every time I tip it to drink it drips a bit. Not sure if I should get a refund or replacement. Do other people get this (I imagine it would be sticky if you were using it for an energy drink)?
Hi - I've used these for the last year, lots of rides and no problems - drink should not come out unless you squeeze the bottle

Just want to know if these fit nicely (not to tight/not to lose) with the Elite Custom Race Cages or do the 610ml Podium fit better?
Yes - it's what I use - no problems

Whats the min bar size this can be used with?

I tried the garmin mount but I would not get it tight enough on my bars to prevent is spinning around!
Hi - this should be ok on old narrow width bars - there's a rubber insert under the mount, and fiting is via zip ties, so there should be no problem getting it tight enough, and the rubber stops it spinning

Ultra light weight inner tube. The Continental Supersonic road inner tube is a must have cycling essential for 700c bike wheels.
 

Weight of 700x20 tube

I am quite sure that the 100gram weight quoted in the description is not the correct weight for this lightwieght tube. Can you quote the correct weight for the 700x20 tube
Hi - I've used the supersonic 700x20c, and mine weigh in at 55g - be careful not to nip them wheel installing though, as they are lightweight and easy to Nip and puncture them
