" After riding a 100km off road ride, I thought it's a good time to write a review. These shoes are comfortable, stand up to some rough stuff and they are great value. They also look good, so overall, I'm really happy.
I'm usually a 42, but on the advice onside I ordered 41 and they are spot on. "

" I've been using SIS products for a while and I find these to be the best gel on the market. Easy on the stomach and ideal for longer rides. Good also if you are low on drinks as they don't need to be taken with water. "

" I've been a user of Cont GP4000 tyres for a while, last set lasted over 4000 miles. So, when it came time to replace them, I thought I'd try out the 28mm. These are fantastic! Roll really well, corner brilliantly and give a step up in comfort from the 25mm I used to run. I had to open up the 105 (5800) brakes a little, but they handle them just fine.
Really happy with these and I don't think I'll be going back to 25mm. "

" After thinking that my seat may need replacing, I had a quick look at my old bib shorts. As the label stated they were from 2010, I thought it was time to replace them (they've don't around 6,000 - 7,000 miles).
These new shorts are fantastic! Great fit and comfort from dhb, as always, and the price is significantly cheaper than other similar spec brands.
Very happy customer! "

" Having bought these some time ago, I've finally got to fitting them to my bike. First issue was the Conti GP4000S 25mm tyres that I had on my bike. These run pretty wide for a 25mm tyre, so I had to swap for 23mm to get these mudguards to fit - not sure if that's my bike specifically or if most bikes are that tight around the rear brake calipers?
Once on, I had to make a small modification to the length of the rear mudguard around the bottom bracket, but that was explained in the instructions.
Now they are on, they fit just right and keep me dry - what more could I want from a set of mudguards?
Overall, a bit of a faff initially but now they are on, they run perfectly - they don't even look too bad! "

3mm Stretch Neoprene toe cover removes the chill factor on dry, cooler Spring/Autumn rides. Easy to fit and remove, great on it's own or layered under a lightweight overshoe for extra protection.

" These are an excellent step between full-on shoe covers and having cold toes. I never really considered toe covers before, but having seen these dhb covers for £9, I thought it would be worth a try.
They are a revelation! They cover the mesh sections on my shoes (also dhb) perfectly, meaning that in the Autumn/Winter transition they really make a difference. Obviously, full shoe covers are the way forward for Winter and wet weather, but these are ideal for Autumn and Spring riding - and they can easily be taken off and put in a jersey pocket. "

Swissstop Flash pro brake pads, with their black compound, provides great braking on alloy rims and also suited for softer alloys including magnesium. Suitable for less aggressive riding, very good in dry and wet conditions.

" I needed to swap out my Shimano 105 brake blocks that came with the bike as they were getting pretty low. I thought I'd try the swissstop blocks as they have been really well reviewed.
They are good and they certainly stop in the rain, probably a bit better than the 105 blocks. But, I haven't been blown away by the stopping power.
Overall, good and I'd purchase again - I just need to be more realistic with my expectations. "

" Having just bought a Garmin Edge 510, I fitted it to my stem and off I went. All was good with the Garmin, but I felt I was taking my eyes off the road just a bit too far. So, searched Wiggle and found this. A good few £'s cheaper than the Garmin "official" product and looks a bit tougher too. Very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend. "

 dhb Core S Jersey
dhb Core S Jersey
A competitively priced Roubaix jersey for cyclists who are starting out in winter.
 

What season can I wear?

I want to buy a jersey for winter like thermo jersey.
Is it for winter or spring / fall ?
I bought this as a Spring jersey and I'd say that's about right. It does keep the chill at bay, but it's not wind proof so the Winter wind could make things a bit cold. However, if you have something else to put over the top, it might be ok.
