" Good tyre, goes on very easily. Some punctures but nothing major, sealant fixed all. Main issue came when I took tyre off to replenish the sealant. It would not go back on with pump or compressor. Very disappointed, but had a few hundred miles out of them so perhaps stretched? Use Milkit sealant system now so hopefully this wouldn't happen again, but I'll try GP5000 first. "
Cons: Poor Fit

Zipp's Tangente Speed RT25 tubeless tires provide the lowest rolling resistance and best overall corning grip available when using tubeless rims. This tubeless tyre is the pioneer of performance for wide road tubeless clincher tyres

" Rolls well, goes on very easily. Second ride = 8mm slash across the main carcass. Stan's just - just - sealed it but not fully so headed home. Bad luck perhaps, dry day, no rain for 10 days, so good conditions. Given the price and manufacturer's reputation, these really should be more resilient. "
Cons: Low Quality, Wears Out Easily

" Good little bag. Fit in a tube, 2 CO2 and adaptor, 2 tyre levers and a small multi tool. I carry a second tube in my pocket. Easy to attach and hasn't fallen off unlike those bags that attach by clips. No water penetration yet as zip is well covered. I doubt this is waterproof, but its good enough to not have to wrap anything in plastic: I don't have mudguards, so it gets a soaking. "

" I switched to this from Assos cream. This is much 'wetter'. It works ok, but it is much messier putting on than Assos, and seems to rub off a little quicker. User preference, but I have gone back to Assos. "

Not well thought out: poor design, awkward fit

Age : 35-44

" Firstly, putting together is a little tricky, but not as bad as some made out; took about 45 minutes and you do need to clip the struts (I think they're designed for a penny farthing). However there are key issues:
The guards attach to the rear of the brake bolt. However the attachments to the brake bolt are not sized properly; too small. No brake I have seen has a shim small enough to go thru the hole on these items. The front attachment is metal, so you need to drill the hole out for it to fit, or cable tie it like i did. The plastic one at the rear can be easily cut to size, but because it compresses you cannot fully tighten the rear brake or it pops off. So loose brakes or poorly fitted mudguards.
On first use I clipped a stick - it is autumn. It rolled up the rear wheel and popped the rear struts off the rear guard. I imagine it is supposed to do this. However the bolts used to attach the struts are not themselves attached to anything, so they've disappeared. No spares. Had to order some more from sks (wiggle don't have them) because I simply can't bear to spend 20 mins taking them off and I've already recycled the (massive) box they came in.
Couldn't recommend. "
Pros: Adjustable
Cons: Poor Fit

New version now leaks

" I've had 5 pairs of the K180s. Perfect fit, really decent goggles. I've just received a 6th, which is the K180+. They've changed the eye gasket - it used to be flexible rubber, but now is firm foam rubber. They leak. Immediately. I also received x1 nosepiece only so no way to work it out. I won't buy these again, and can't recommend them. "

" I've had several adamo saddles over a few years. I found race and road too hard, podium is perfect for TT but this saddle is perfect for long upright rides. Marginally more heavy than the others, but it is the most comfortable adamo I have used. It is a bit cheaper which is a bonus, but I don't know if that will affect longevity. Either way, I will definitely buy this again. Plus no numb bellend! "

" I've used four of five of the tubes. The first blew when it was first inflated to 100psi - never even cycled on it. Another split around the valve join, again only a few minutes after I had installed it. The others are ok, but pretty disappointed in the overall quality compared to other vittoria products. I probably had a bad batch, but will never buy these again. "

Lezyne Super Drive XL Front Light 2012
NEW Compact performance light, very powerful unit with "infinite light" feature: Ideal for serious MTB and Road cycling.
 

Does this light rotate around the clamp

Can this light be rotated around its clamp? The clamp is unlikely to fit my aerobars so I will attach to the extension. I then need to rotate the light body 90degrees to get it pointed down the road. This option is available on some lights I have used.

Continental's all-new road tyre, the Grand Prix 5000 TL takes over where the 4000 left off, taking its speedy performance and road running durability to new levels, thanks to its tubeless compatibility and modern tyre technology.
 

Are They Compatibel with Shimano R9100 C40 Carbon Wheels ?

If it’s a tubeless ready wheel then probably. Buy another tyre tho, mine leaked air through the sidewall (with 60ml sealant). Bad production line I imagine.

Can this tyre be used as an old fashoined clincher with an inner tube?

I realise that i would be losing the benefit of tubeless, but not having run a tubeless tyre before, I wondered whether I could always revert to fitting an inner tube tube.
yes.

Reservoir

Please can you tell me if this comes with a reservoir. Please can you tell me the size of this. If not, can you tell me if you do a 2L reservoir which fits.
Thanks
Ellen
Mine only comes with the two 500ml bladders as advertised. I guess this may be a newer model? Either way, in case anyone is curious in 2016 it seems they don't anymore.

Are the locks on this case TSA approved?

I will be using the case to travel with my bike to the States.The TSA security guys will just force their way into the case if they cannot get into it via a TSA approved lock.
Not overly helpful but I didn't lock it when I went to the US; i have never locked it on any flight for that reason. The box holds well enough with the side clips. No problems with the TSA. they didn't even open it. It just went through the oversized xray scanner on every flight I used it on when I lived there. It will depend on the airport though - some are less helpful than others.

Moser Roadbike : 25mm Gatorskins - Will it fit?

Liked the sound of the Crud RoadRacers although there are mixed reviews, some say it fits on 25mm tyres, same say they don't..

I'm using gatorskins 25mm on Moser bike.
i've got 25mm roubaix and they fit fine.
