" Luckily I checked other reviews before I bought these socks as they said get the larger size. I'm a size 9 but I ordered the next size up 9.5 - 11.5 and they only just fit. Great socks apart from that, nice and colourful and comfortable to wear "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Great Value

" Joe Blow pumps have a great reputation in the cycling community so when my older, cheaper track pump died I knew there was only one type to get - a Joe Blow of course!
I had no idea until I logged onto Wiggle that there were so many different varieties of them but after comparing my needs to the various functions and features of the different Joe Blow pumps I soon settled on the Joe Blow Turbo. I wanted to be able to pump up both Road and MTB tyres, clinchers and tubulars and lastly have a gauge near the top of the pump.
All in all a good quality pump at a value for money price. "
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Versatile

" I've wasted money on numerous other frame pumps that are claimed to be able to pump over 100psi into a road tyre but hadn't found one until I purchased the Topeak Road Morph. Most are lucky if they can go to 80psi. A genuine 120psi is achievable with the Road Morph.
The only negative is the silly mounting bracket that comes with the pump, I soon ditched it and bought one that mounts under the bottle cage. "
Pros: Great Value, Versatile
Cons: mounting bracket

" I upgraded to Sidi Genius 5 Pro Road Cycling Shoe from Shimano RD75. The Sidi is about $100 dearer but a better quality shoe. They are more suited to the racer rather than the recreational cyclist as they are stiffer and tighter. I though at first the buckle might be a hassle but it is very easy to use. Good looking shoes too, have had several complimentary comments (about the shoes!) from fellow cyclists. "
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality
