" I run XT brakes and XTR rotors and have dried other branded pads in the past but none have been as good as these. Shimano develop and test their calipers with their own pads. For best performance, it makes sense to use them to since the pads were meant to work with the Shimano calipers. Works for me with brilliant control and stopping power. "
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Good Fit

" Very reasonably priced and does a good job. It could de with being slightly longer above the knee to make sure it doesn't slip below the shorts line. I have had to pull them up a bit on some occasions. However, can't really complain at this price. "
Pros: Attractive, Great Value, Lightweight
Cons: could be a bit longer

 Ozon II Bib Short
Ozon II Bib Short
"Short: High-end padded cycling bibtights for the medium to long distance road cyclist. They offer high functionality and comfort."
 

Is the shoulder strap edges made out of same material that Gore Bike Wear Power III have? I found that a bit rough on the skin.

I don't own the Power III but have a couple of these and a couple of the Gore bib tights too. I find the straps comfortable (I am 1.89m) and they stretch well without loosing the comfort. I do wear a base layer for both summer and winter. Hope that helps :-).

TORQ energy has been painstakingly formulated so that it delivers a unique blend of carbohydrate and electrolytes to the working muscles through a drink that is lightly flavoured, refreshing and most importantly natural.
 

Energy drink

Torq Energy Powder Drink - I have just bought this product from yourselves and wanted to know how long before training should I drink it? I want it to give me energy during an hours gym followed by an hours excercise class.
I use it for cycling and drink it all the way through a ride. Just drink from the start of your session until the end - whenever you are thirsty (little and often).

when mixed is it fizzy ? my bike bottle holds 1 litre,how many bottles would i get out of the 1.5kg tub.

Not fizzy and a 1.5kg tub will last you a long time. Then again, I don't know how much you drink, how often you cycle and for how long.

what range of tube diameters can the clamp hold securely?

Best answer
I've had a 27.2 carbon road bike and a full susspension MTB with a 31.6 tube. Holds bothe very well indeed with both wheels on. No worries there! My full susser is alloy so not particularly light.

replacement parts?

The clamp rotation mechanism relies on a bit of plastic with plastic teeth that is screwed into the head of the metal stand. This is a weak part which experiences the force put on the frame (e.g. removing bottom bracket) and will eventually fail. Is it possible to buy a replacement part?
Mine went wrong for the same reason and I got a replacement stand from Wiggle.

A lightweight road frame pump which morphs into a mini floor pump. Extra long high pressure barrel and integral gauge.
 

Is this suitable for french valves common to most road bikes?

I have been told portable pumps tend to bend the valves on road bikes. Is there any truth to this?
I'm French and only know valves as Presta and schrader. The pump is foine for the road pike valve variety with the little screw bit on tip. The pumps don't bend the valve, we do. However, this is most common for pumps that have no hose to the valve. You just have to hold the pump tight to the valve when you pump to prevent damage. It does appear that the pump you are referring to does have a small hose so no worries there for you. It just depends how much pump/weight you want to carry. This one looks a bit large if you ask me. I personally go for the CO2 type with small poump stroke. But that's just me.
