" Well made with useful pockets and zips. Like the lightweight frame and webbing, which lets cool air flow over your back. Limited capacity but that's good as it encourages you to carry no more than is necessary for a day on the bike. "
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight

" These beam racks are well made and a fair price but you need to be sure that the model you are intending to buy will fit before you close the deal. Probably best to take your bike to the shop and get advice before you buy. Oh and yes, be prepared to swing your leg high(er) when mounting and dismounting. "

Tacx have recently launched three new models, Blue Motion, Matic and the Twist to replace the older Cycletrack model. For the money, the Matic is ideal for the occasional rider wanting to keep dry, whilst the weather is wet outside and continue to ride.

" Bought a pair in black (extra large) and am very pleased with them. Smart, light in weight, effective and well designed, they pack down small ready for use if and when you are caught out by a shower (or worse). I'm 5 feet 10 inches tall with a 38 inch waist. The Velcro fasteners and zips at the ankle make for easy adjustment. "

" Bought this jersey in blue (nice colour) and, following advice read earlier, ordered it one size larger (XL) than the sizing table indicated. It's a good (snug) fit and I'm very pleased with it. The jersey has a full-length zip at the front with three useful pockets at the back. I'm 5ft 10" and 200 lbs. "

" I'm very pleased indeed with my new dhb EQ2.5 waterproof cycling jacket in red (it's a great colour). Bought it one size larger (XXL) than the sizing box indicated based on the feedback on this site and it's a comfortable (snug) fit on me except for the sleeves, which are on the long side. Not that that's a problem as the adjustable cuffs are great and I would much prefer the sleeves to be on the long side (better than being too short). This jacket is light in weight and easily packs down into its resealable bag. It's well made and equipped with convenient pockets and a well-designed front zip. I'm about 5' 10" tall with a 40" chest and waist. "
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight

The frame is hand-welded from custom-drawn 4130 chromoly Sonus tubing and incorporates six different patented technologies, resulting in what is probably our stiffest frame. The Neos derailleur is fast-shifting and has a nice wide, gear range - perfect for urban riding in most cities.

" This is an excellent cycle, particularly for those who wish to cycle on traffic free routes. The design is clever and the engineering and finish is high quality. It takes only a minute or two to fold/unfold and easily fits in the boot of most cars. I've had mine for a couple of weeks now and have used it for a dozen short/medium trips of up to 14 miles. It's comfortable to ride and adjustable to fit. The (7 speed) gearing is excellent allowing the user to cope with most hills. "
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Versatile, Good Fit, great for recreation
