" These lights are smart, easy to fit/remove, easy to use and most importantly offer a good range of modes to make sure you will be seen. I use these for commuting and they seem to get me noticed, the only downside is the lack of side visibility but that is somewhat offset by the flashing modes.
Overall I would recommend these about town but for unlit roads you will need to add in another light to the mix such as the exposure strada. "
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: lack of side vision

" A nice enough cap to start with but I now have issues with it. My head is quite large, at first the fit was OK, a little tight but nothing too bad. I tend to run hot and sweaty when out so it wasn’t long before the cap needed washing so in it went on a quick 30C wash. Despite low temperature and short wash cycle the elastic has detached and it appears to have shrunk. I can just about wear it still but when I take it off I look like I have a Klingon forehead for a good hour or so as the dents created by the stitching bounce back out of my head!
I guess if you don’t have a large head and don’t sweat too much therefore not needing to wash it, this would be a OK cap "
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit

" Bought to replace the gear cables on my hybrid, nice cable set with one exception, the ferrules were too big for the shifters and rear derailleur. Managed to adjust a couple of the ones in the pack and then reused an old one for the front cable. Given the cost of the set and them claiming to be compatible not too impressed, shifting with the new cables in place is however much improved. "

Nearly as easy as a full sized track pump.

Will these tyres fit my bike

I have Mavic Cosmic Elite 700 x 23 on my road bike and I'm looking for a good quality puncture resistant winter tyre - will these fit my wheels?
Yes, both the 23 and 25 should be fine. You won't be disappointed with the puncture resistance.
