" Replaced my rear pads quickly and easily as they were not stopping me within a safe distance. These new pads are very efficient and I am now stopping quickly without a lot of lever pressure. They are also quiet. When I am approaching a fast downhill corner I feel confident and safe. It will be interesting to see how long they last but for the cost and the ease of replacement I can afford to carry spares. "
Pros: Good Fit, Great Value, minimal cost for an efficient product

Cateye Padrone Cycle Computer with large screen. The good people at Cateye listened to requests for a larger screen, whats really important is they have managed to increase the screen size whilst keeping the profile slim.

" I needed a computer that would let me read the numbers clearly and quickly even in low light situations. The Padrone was perfect. I was able to set it up very quickly and found the settings accurate. No complaints. Wiggle's delivery service was as always excellent. "

" Bought these as I had lost one of my previous pair. Noticeable that they kept my hands much warmer yet they seemed thinner and less bulky allowing my fingers to grip the bars and use gear levers and brakes more easily. I have used them in cold and wet conditions and can only say that I am pleased that I stuck with this make.
I also got them for an excellent price and as usual Wiggle's superb delivery service.

" This is the fourth pair of these I have used. They are comfortable and do not let water in. I liked them so much i bought my grandchildren a pair each. The one downside is that the bridge often splits. I presume due to a reaction to swimming pool chemicals but it could also be due to sunlight. 2 pairs broke while on holiday this year. However they had been well used prior to this so not too much to complain about. I am now making sure I wash them after each swim. "

" Yes they do exactly what the description says. They mould to my face they are extremely comfortable and most importantly no ingress of water. I can come out of the pool or sea without having pressure rings round my eyes. I got the fit spot on almost immediately and have had no need to adjust them since. It means I can concentrate on my swimming style without the problem of water in my goggles. They are not the cheapest goggles but my opinion is money well spent. Have tried cheap ones in the past which have been relegated to the bin. Would have liked a case for them but have comandeered a case from an old pair of glasses, so no problem. "
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

" Being relatively new to touring I needed a good quality waterproof and secure bag. The Topeak Tour guide bag delivers all of this and more. It keeps all of my valuable items passport, camera, money etc. safe and most importantly dry. The added availability of a rain cover is welcome but not always needed. It transfers readily from the bike, I just have to clip on the carrying strap. The fit on the bars is excellent and secure. This is not the first Topeak item I have bought and definitely will not be the last "
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Versatile, watertight

Torq Gel Sachets
Posted15 October 2010
" Not being as fit as I should be due to injury I was concerned about my endurance levels. After a long day in the saddle 80 miles plus and feeling a bit weary, the Black Berry Youghurt gels gave me a tangible boost. Very good taste and easy on the stomach. On a second occasion half way through a long climb and beginning to feel heavy legged I took a gel and was able to finish the climb feeling strong. I always take a drink after the gel although not essential. On my third day out I decided to take gels after the first hour and then every 40 mins after that and did not have any problems during a 6 hour ride. "
Pros: pleasant taste, quick reaction
Cons: could be easier to open, sticky and messy if opened on the go

Wafer's Questions
 
Compact design, rear rack mounting bag with large expanding main compartment and side panniers for commuting, errands and touring.
 

Rack system compatibility

I have been using a Topeak RX trunk bag and rack system for some years and want to upgrade to the MTX DXP. Will my rack still be able to carry the larger Trunk bag. Also will I need to buy a larger rain cover.

Does the Fixer 8 bracket work with 31.8mm handlebars?

I have 31.8mm bars on my bike and all I needed to do was use slightly longer allen screws to hold the bracket in place.
No problem.
