I weigh more than 100kg and was often getting punctures, but I have done more than 500 miles on it now with no punctures. They are relatively easy to fit and provide good grip with no noticeable loss in rolling performance. "

" I don't think I am ever going to feel entirely comfortable cycling but with this saddle it gets very close. This was recommended by my brother who's a keen cyclist with a lot more experience than me. It's much more comfortable than anything I have ridden on to date. It's well made, looks good and built to last, no problems to date. "

" Took me a while to get my head round all the features but now I have I would not be without it. It is quite customisable so you can tweak it to view the features that are important to you. If you're doing any kind of training I believe something like this is essential to measure your performance. However, it is quite expensive for what it is.
The bottom line is that it's a great piece of kit that works well, is robust and reliable. "

" This stand makes life so much easier, especially during the winter when I seem to be constantly cleaning my bikes. It's very practical folding away to quite a small size, even the wife hasn't noticed it in the garage yet. The height adjustment is very useful, I'm 6'1" and it comes up just right for me. Quick to setup and easy to mount the bike, couldn't ask for more. "

" Having previously used WD40 I find this product less oily and more suited to cycling. I use it it on all the moving parts except the chain and I also use it on my carbon fibre frame. It leaves a great sheen that also makes it easier to clean. The bike is kept in tip top order no matter what the weather throws at it. "

Winter Riding

Is this tyres suitable for winter riding, if not any suggestions, I'm after a tyre with great puncture protection like these or marathon plus that are good for winter cycling.
I weigh more than 100kg and was always getting punctures, with this tyre I have had none in more than 500 miles. I have ridden it in the wet and cold temperatures with no problems.
