"Use it with 3 bikes on my Golf. Easy once you have set up first time and its clearly a very sturdy piece of kit. No pedals knocking on the paintwork like cheaper models & well worth the few extra pounds."
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless Road Tyre
The world beating Fusion tyre available in Tubeless version. Features a 3-compound tread to optimise durability, acceleration and corning grip. Competition style slick profile.
"I can't really recommend these. Not only are they very expensive but I didn't really notice much difference in feel when out cycling. Not at all easy to get over the rims - luckily a hardy mechanic helped me out. Filled with Stan's tyre sealant but even so managed to get an oozing puncture after about 200 miles of riding. Had to bale out of the ride and don't want to risk that again. Needless to say I will be heading back to old skool tubes !!"
Cons: Expensive, Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit

The benchmark cycling short for racing and endurance training. Featuring the FI. Uno_S5 seatpad, an Anatomic 6 panel cut and premium Assos construction, T FI.Uno_S5 shorts offer elite level comfort and performance at the heart of your summer outfit.
"I would reccommend this as a purchase - it really is a quality garment and well worth the extra ££ if you can afford it. However I am sure there are many people who have found equally good shorts at a lower price.
I am very pleased with the appearance and comfort of these shorts - although clearly at the price I would not expect anything less.
My one piece of advice would be to size up. I bought a large and am 6'2". I realise I should have gone one size up as things are slightly tighter than I would have liked.
The missus is not overjoyed = she thinks it looks like a 'mankini' ... however you can't have it all and it was never purchased to spice up the bedroom antics !
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight

"but these really do seem to do the job and provide a pick up at vital points during your ride. Clearly there are scientific benefits and I won't bore you with them in this review. I don't know if anyone actually finds drinking / eating them a pleasant experience....they remind me somewhat of the gooey fat that you get in the gravy boat a few hours after your roast dinner. Not the most pleasant texture. However for a shot of energy - seems to do the trick !"
Pros: turbo boost, easy to carry
Cons: a bit sludgy

Flow Computer Ergo Turbo Trainer
Any cyclist with a bit of experience knows that top performance requires more than a weekly training routine.
"This was my first venture into the world of turbo trainers and having done the research and considered my price point I decided this was the one for me.
I had a spare Saturday with my 4-yr old - who loves making/fixing things. However the instructions that came with this did not inspire me to Bob the Builder level of workmanship. Very small diagrams and poorly translated Dutch > English meant that you had to simply 'feel your way' around the set-up. I was also supplied with a shocking 3-pin converter plug that the original 2-pin didn't fit into. I had to buy my own.
Obviously for some experienced riders / mechanics this would not have been a problem but for me it was. It took me the best part of 3 hours and various internet searches. It didnt help that the package came with various nuts and bolts - most of which you don't need to use.
Anyhow - moaning aside - the product is now in the garage and I am using it with a Polar T-31 transmitter for heart monitoring (non-coded). This was reccommended by Wiggle and works a treat - thanks guys.
I am finding it a great product to use and just fitting in 30 minute training sessions with hill-climbs at intervals should see my overall fitness levels improve."
