" My last bike which I upgraded to Zonda wheels was stolen,and they had made a big change to that bikes.
I was really undecided what upgrade I would do this this.Do I go for a high alloy wheel or get a pair of carbon deep section aeros.
Decided to go for slightly less weight and I am really pleased with these.They are two way as well which gives me scope if I ever want to go the tubeless route.Fantastic value the bike so much easier now.

Sizing for size 42 road shoes

I have size 42 (ladies) road shoes and I'm unsure if the 42-44 might be too lose. Would the 39-41 stretch over my shoes?

Cassette combinations of 12-23, 12-25, 13-26 and 13-29.
 

Compatible with 2006 Centaur hub?

I currently have a 2006 Centaur 10 spd hub, but the cassette is now worn out. I see elsewhere you don't stock or can't get hold of the Centaur 13-26 cassette anymore. Would this be compatible with my hub? If it helps, the 6 largest cogs are riveted together (in pairs, not as a 6). I can take photos if you want of these, and the spline pattern. Also, the chain, should I stick with Campag or get something else, ie SRAM, KMC or Wippermann?
I think you would be find with the Veloce cassette.
Use a Campagnola chain

 Udderly Smooth Chamois Cream (227g)
Udderly Smooth Chamois Cream (227g)
The thick consistency and moisturising formula of Udderly Smooth Chamois Cream (227g) keep friction away and make sure that you are always comfortable. Can be applied to either skin, chamois or both.
 

Udderly or Assos?

In answer to my previous question about how long a tub would last, Wiggle Joe suggested that maybe Assos may be better for my proposed ride.

Why? Does it simply "go further/ last longer" or is there something about the formulation of the product that would make Assos better suited to my proposed ride?

Cheers, LG.
Assos is a much better product.Thicker and longer lasting.

puncture proof tyre

Got a pair of theses tyres and fitted them to me giant tcx cyclo cross bike a month ago, I've been out only twice using these tyres to do 50+ miles. On my second ride out my back tyre got a puncture, I didn't expect this from using these tyres, after reading all the reviews and product description. What type of protection do these tyres actually give or have I just been unlucky.
No tyre is puncture proof despite what the manufacture says.
You have just been unlucky.

How do you fit folding tyres?

I find it very difficult to get the tyre on to the wheel - do I need to soften the tyre first.
Yes I had a right sweat on when I fitted mine,luckily with use they soften up May be warming them to start will make them more pliable to fit
