" i just rebuilt a pair of ti zero pedals with this kit, the body had been ground away in a crash, but as long as the axles are ok it saves a lot of money vs. new pedals
simple enough job to do, although to undo the t20 screw you need to break the loctite, the instruction to use a 300f soldering iron to heat the screw was useless - imho it makes no sense, 300f is about the point loctite 243 gets weak, but the thread temp will be much lower as the axle conducts away the heat
in the end i just bunged the pedals in the oven at 180c for 15 minutes, now *that* released the loctite!
the kit does not include the cartridge bearings, you have to order those separately, which seems a bit of a swizz "
Pros: Great Value, can change pedal colour
Cons: bearings not included, iffy instructions

Fast recovery is vital to reaching and maintaining a high level of fitness. The body recovers at the greatest rate during a two hour window immediately after exercise but only if you provide it with the vital nutrients it needs.
 

Sugar Content

Why is the sugar content so high in the chocolate version compared to the Banana/Vanilla where as the carbohydrate content is similar?
Best answer
Top 50 Contributor
Top 50 Contributor
it's about the taste

cocoa is quite bitter, to make it palatable to most people dextrose (aka glucose) is used to sweeten as well as provide carbs

maltodextrin isn't a sugar, but it is just chains of glucose molecules, the longer the chain the less sweet it tastes

it is metabolised almost as fast as glucose, because as you digest it, the chains are broken down to produce glucose

so maltodextrin is used where the metabolic impact of glucose is intended but without the sweet taste

 Castelli Aero Race 5.0 Short Sleeve Cycling Jersey SS14
Castelli Aero Race 5.0 Short Sleeve Cycling Jersey SS14
The Aero Race 5.0 jersey is the most aero jersey Castelli have ever made weighing in at 98g (large). The Velocity Dry fabric used also makes the jersey dry extremely fast and the compression band around the waist also keeps the pockets in place.
 

Size up due to pro fit and aero?

My measurements fall exactly on the XL size of Castelli (105cm chest, 93cm waist, 186cm height), confirmed with other non aero Castelli products.

I wonder if the specific jersey, as being aero and pro fit should be treated sizewise differently, size up or not?
Top 50 Contributor
Top 50 Contributor
i take a medium in this and in other race cut castelli jerseys, measurements about midway between medium and large

sounds like you should get xl

it's cut for riding position, goes tight upright, so don't judge fit off the bike

when you get it, keep the tags on until you've checked fit in case you need to return it, wiggle are good about this

 Veloflex Arenberg Tubular Tyre
Veloflex Arenberg Tubular Tyre
All-purpose tubular ideal for rough terrains like rough roads or cobblestones paved roads.
 

Is this tire the same as the Veloflex Roubaix but just with black instead of tan sidewalls?

From the specs, it looks like the only difference is the Roubaix has tan sidewalls but the Arenberg has black. Ideally, I'd like to go for black sidewalls so would choose the Arenberg if it has all the other qualities of the Roubaix (which was recommended to me).
