" Poor quality watch, avoid it until quality improves - we owned both the FR60 and FR70 and they (and their warranty replacements) have all failed in a similar manner.
My wife owned the FR60. Running in the cold it continually fogged up and then died after 6 months. Replaced by Garmin and sure enough 6 months later the replacement died.
We assumed that Garmin would fix this widely reported issue in the new FR70. Wrong! Same issues, we are now in the hunt for a different brand.
Disappointing as I own Garmin cycling and hiking GPS and they are great. "
Pros: Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Low Quality, prone to failure, not waterproof, fogs up, falls apart

" The airflow through the helmet is not as good as the MET Estro it replaced. Even with a much cooler summer than usual I could feel the difference.
The sweat pad over the forehead part is quite thin and wears quickly and comes loose.
The winding adjuster is good, makes fitting easy when you swap between a cap on the commute in and bare head on the ride home.
Lastly, as it finishes at a point in the middle at the front I am forever having to adjust it get it to sit straight. It only needs to be a fraction off and it looks like you are wearing it at an angle, a point my gf just loves to point out. "
Pros: Great Value, High Quality
Cons: Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit

" These gloves fit well once on and haven't stretched as much as the sugoi, gore etc gloves I have used previously.
They are a little harder to get on and off as they don't have finger loops for removal or a velcro fastener at the wrist.
Also a bit shorter at the wrist than other gloves so roadies might not like messing with their razor sharp tan lines. "
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

" Works better than my other floor pumps.
Pressure gauge seems fairly accurate but the main thing I like about this floor pump is that when you clamp it over the presta valve it always breaks the seal so you are ready to pump.
With the heads on some of my other floor pumps you have to slidethe valve in at an angle to ensure the valve inner depresses. "
Pros: Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

" Fabric seems too thick for the purpose given some of the competition out there. Feels like there would be too much friction and they would impede leg movement a little. May get softer with more use and washing?
Anyway, I returned these pants as they were too small in the thighs at the correct waist measurement.
No issues with the return. "

" Bought these gloves for below 0 degree commuting. Was hoping to be able to use the glove with no inner glove. Unfortunately not windproof enough to handle below zero temps without a cotton inner glove.
On the upside the glove did very well keeping my hands dry on a rainy commute home last week.
They seem to take about average time to dry when compared to other winter gloves i have tried.
in summary - very good 0 to 8 degree waterproof glove. Not windproof enough to be used by itself below zero. "
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: not windproof, not warm enough

" Bottle cage part of this works fine.
Pump holder is no good. You are better off getting the plain bottle cage and using the holder than comes with the pump.
This holder relies purely on doing the strap up really tight to prevent the pump moving/rattling. With the holder supplied with the pump you 'snap' the pump into the holder and the strap is just there as additional insurance. "
Pros: Great Value
Cons: Poor Quality, Unadjustable, Low Quality, Poor Fit

" Bought to replace my commuting backpack, so most of my use has been without the bladder inserted. Seems well made and does not bounce around on my back when used mtb on singletrack.
But:
1. The shoulder straps are not long enough to let the pack sit low enough on my back. Possibly just a personal thing.
2. The cargo space seems a lot smaller then advertised. The bladder pouch does not seal 100% meaning there is a small chance gear could drop out of the pack. "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable
Cons: Unadjustable, Poor Fit

Are there Australian maps available? And how much would the maps be?

Yes, you can buy topographic maps and routable street maps. Both sets around the $200 each mark.

Wiggle sell both sorts (I think) for a fairly cheap price compared to local options.
