" This lid is distinctively styled which is what caught my eye, then it is produced in Italy by a well known brand, it meets two safety standards - the EU and American tough CSPC standard so overall it made perfect sense to get this lid!!
I have the white one, it is quality made and the finish is nice to look at, the chin strap is comfy and it has an inner 3 piece liner with an intergrated bug mesh, this can be removed for summer use.
It has good adjustment to get the most comfy fit. you can adjust the vertical and horizantal position using a dial.
It's not your usual average looking helmet , I like this,it looks aggressive and racy!
Glad I have upgraded from a Giro to this, I would recommend this helmet to all road cyclists. "
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

" I got this to do a 100 mile sportive, I managed to fit my mobile (in a waterproof cover), 1 tube (in its box) tyre levers, allen keys, debit card, energy tablets in a small tube and a piece of paper with some directions on.
If you are carrying your mobile in this bag, be sure to use a waterproof case as the bag is not waterproof, during the sportive it absolutely hammered down and the piece of folder paper and debit card were soaked. This is the reason I have given it 4 stars and not 5.
I think it would just about be okay in a light shower though.
It is easy to fit and does not move around once fitted, it is secure. "
Pros: Durable, Rugged, High Quality, Adjustable, Good Fit
Cons: only holds one tube, not waterproof

" I have been using these tabs for the last 3 weeks now, (kola flavour with caffine) and they work. The taste is not overly strong and it doesn't upset my stomach , they helped get me through a tough 100 mile sportive.
I wil be ordering the other flavours now as I get on with the Kola one so well. Also there are 12 tabs in one tube which I think for the price is really good value, that's 12 drinks! "
Pros: Great Value, High Quality, taste nice not too strong, stomach friendly when on the move!, good choice of flavours, easy to use and carry, they work!

" I replaced my old standard shimano brake pads (on Tiagra brakes) with these and what a good decision that was!! I used them for a 100 mile sportive and they held up very well, on fast mountain decents I felt confident they would stop me as far as I could see if needed.
Much better than the standard shimano brake blocks, these are expensive but they are worth it, they also work great in the rain, you don't have to wait for the block to grip the rim, it does it straight away!
Great for when you are commuting as well, when you suddenly need to stop in built up traffic.
I'm just hoping they last a decent length of time as they are costly for bike brake blocks, but if you want top braking performance (and who doesn't!?) you have to pay for it.
I found them easy to fit also, took me under 5 mins. "
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Good Fit, top braking performance, work in the wet
Cons: Expensive

" I have had these for about 2 weeks now and so far so good. They don't fog up, the 3 lense options are great, I tried them all and they all work as they should and v.easy to change as well. They are a perfect fit for me and I have a small/med head (54/55cm)
They are stylish and have rubber nose grips and also rubber on the arms so they stay on even when you are sweating buckets!!! I have used these on a 100 mile sportive and not at any point did they let me down. They are great value, seem to be quality made, nice colour options, (I have the pink ones).
You can forget you are wearing them as they are so comfortable, also a very important thing for me is that my contacts have stayed in with these glasses on as with other glasses my contacts have actully flown out of my eyes!
I couldn't ride without these glasses now, try them!!! "
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Rugged, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Unadjustable

Best answer
Hi, no this bag is not waterproof, it is at best light shower proof, so if you carry your phone in it, use a waterproof cover as I do!

Spare tube

Hi, this bag will fit: one tube, multi tool, tyre levers, phone and cards and cash, may be a bit of a squeeze to fit in the co2 inflator and canister but you could try, or maybe opt for large size, hope this helps! I just carried my mini pump in jersey pocket
