" Whoever designed this bottle needs to actually use it while cycling. The biggest downside is the cheap cap and nozzle fitting. It's a generic rubber teat fitted over a non-sealing plastic nozzle. I have to bite and suck hard to get a decent mouthful of water, by which time I'm thirsty again. Did I mention it leaks....
Do not waste your money and time. "
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Poor Fit

Possibly the Worst pedal

" Where to begin? TIme pedals, as far as I can remember, have had a reputation for finiky pedal mechs. This pedal exacerbates that reputation. I have been using it for almost 18mths.Over the past 6months the spring mech has become really troublesome often feeling quite loose. Also there's a weird sensation of my foot floating on top of the pedal.In short this terrible, terrible piece of equipment to inflict on the any cyclist. They require nearly constant adjustment, both cleat and spring tension.
Also, the cleats are even worse with no durability. I've gone through 4 sets of cleats in 18mths.
"
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit, loss of spring tension

" Bought these great tyres in Sept 11. I commute about 40kms a day to and from work. I've covered 4400km since. The roads are often strewn with glass, loose stones and other debris. My daily route includes crossing exposed tram tracks. I've ridden over and broken a bottle. These amazing tyres have taken this all in it's stride.The rear tyre has taken serious abuse with assorted cuts and nicks in the outer casing. I've punctured once, the front tyre, when an exposed tram track edge cut through the tyre. Other than this inccident the Vredensteins have been nearly bulletproof.
The rolling resistence is low. Great comfort and excellent grip. I've replaced the current worn set with a fresh set.
Only thing, is these tyred are a pig to get on and off when new! Well worth the effort. "
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

" I've always admired and enjoyed this line of San Marco saddles. This saddle has met my expectations and then some! It is stylish - fantatstic matches my steel/chrome frame. I commute 40kms daily to and from work, as well long weekend rides and my saddle constantly provides hours of comfort and support - from riding the nose on the flats to riding the back edge of the seat on a long climb - every position is comfortable and enjoyable. Weather wise my saddle has performed through 38deg heat and drenching downpours. It continues to maintain it's shape and support. "

" On the up side these are a very snug....nay tight fit. Originally ordered the med which was waaay to long. They are very warm and fitted.
Downside:I went the small and they are quite tight as my thighs are a bit biggish. The length is still an issue, i have pull them to an almost uncomfortable length near the groin. If you are over 6ft2 this is the prefect brand of leg warmers, anyone shorter will struggle. A really odd sizing design. Italians must be uber-tall!

" If you're after a well fitted, snug, secure and warm overshoe...this is not it. The overall fit is loose and baggy, the velco strap does not hold the overshoe firmly in place. The only cover, under the shoe is a strap. Overpriced for what it is... "

" I've always been a fan of Catlike's lids. Couldn't quite spend the $200 for the 'Whisper'...but the 'Compact' is a beautifully designed, lightweight, snug-fit, easily-adjusted, lid. It is really light and snug, there are times I forget I have it on. The vents are a breeze....literally! Does a brilliant job of venting the heat and allowing cool air to flow through. Fortunately, have not had to crash test it!!
Pity I couldn't get the white and black one...oh well...Ps: bomb the naff sun visor! "

" Before the upgrade, I did not think there was much of difference between the Centaurs and Chorus shifters...I was SO wrong! The Chorus shifters has been one the best investments for my hardworking steel frame. The shifting is much more precise, you can hear and feel a definite snick when shifting. Response time is so much quicker. Loving the 'express-down-shift' function..need a lower gear hit the downshift lever all the way down and BANG I'm out of the saddle sprinting to catch the traffic light!!
I wonder if there's much difference between the chorus and the record... "

" These were a fantastic buy. The ceramic bearing have added to a much smoother and efficient ride. It has definitely made pedalling alot more effortless. A great addition to the drivetrain. Especially as this is one area that is easily overlooked when upgrading the drivetrain.

Maximum puncture protection for race machines!
 

Is thee 1 or 2 tires in the durnao plus tire pack at 29,99?

Just the 1. They are awesome tires though. Easy to put on and take off for punctures. In 3 months I've had one flat, and I suspect that it was more the tube than the tyre.

 Mini-Free Wireless Cycle Computer
Mini-Free Wireless Cycle Computer
The small big one with easy handling. Despite the compact construction and the light weight of only 18gr the MINI cyclometre surprises with a great display.
 

How do you change the data displayed?

If the unit has no buttons, how do you change between displayed data (e.g. speed, average speed, distance etc.). Does the display 'cycle' through each function, or are all the functions constantly visible on the same screen?
When the pc is fitted to the mounting bracket. Under the pc is a tiny silver button which is clicked against the mounting bracket.
