" Följer man Wiggles instruktioner för blandning blir det en rätt lätt smak av apelsin. Jag lägger till 50% och då blir det en lagom stark apelsin-smak, och inte så söt-sliskig som vissa andra alternativ. Tycker i övrigt att det smakar ungefär som apelsin, och inte så syntetiskt som flera andra märken. Likvärdig kvalitet med Powerbars mer påkostade sportdrycker, men klart lägre pris. "
Pros: Bra kvalitet, god smak, prisvärt

" I have low arches and almost "duck"-feet, and have almost always had troouble with my cycling-shoes.
Numb feet has been the normal state for me
I have used Superfeet, both the DMP and the Black ones in my civil shoes, but this is the first time I use them in cyclng shoes.
And boy, what a´difference they made!
All of a sudden my Shimano R-240W shoes feels perfect on my feet, even after more than four hours at the road.

My height is 182 cm, 87 cm leg length. I need size L or M?

Actually, it´s a matter of taste.

I am almost exacly measuring as you, and I choose the Large.
I tend to like a bit larger frames though.

I think you can choose both; as we are somewhere in between size.wize.

Sprinting from the lights, braking for the next set, cornering and weaving around the traffic, then it's out into the lanes pushing hard up the climbs and descending. The new efficient and controlled Hybrid Team takes it all in its stride.
 

What brakes are on this model?

In description Avid Jucy 3 but on a picture Avid Elixir
Best answer
Well I can confirm that the brakes are NOT Juicy 3.
I have ordered this bike from Wiggle and it was delivered with Juicy 1 brakes, nothing else.

Good bike though.
