" Over the years I've been cycling I've purchased a fair few saddles, always on the look out to ease those bum numbing rides. Built up a nice collection over that time trying San Marco Concor and Rolls, Fizik Aliante and Ariane, numerous Selle Italia and others far off in the mist of time.
Two years a friend recommended giving Charge Spoon a try out, at £20 I thought you cant go wrong but the cheapness had me thinking it wouldn't last long. Well two years and over five thousand miles later I cant fault this saddle, I've now got them on Summer, Winter and Hybrid bike.
I'm thirteen stone and riding anything up to 100 mile a trip but have never had issues with them, I find it the most comfortable saddle I've tried out and for £20 quid how can you go wrong.
"
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value

" Although these are cheap arm warmers they more than do the job, for me they are ideal on spring mornings or cooler summer days (too many recently). If you want fancy arm warmers then pay twice the price, for me these are ideal.
Just a word of warning about size, i'm 5' 11" 13 stone with the usual thin cyclist arms, going on previous posts i ordered small and these are perfect for me, i would recommend you order a size smaller than normal.
"
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight, Good Fit
