Big improvement over a road mech for gravel bikes
Posted22 December 2017
" Gravel bikes so often come with standard road components which are fine, but not ideal. If you don't like 1x, then your options are a bit limited.
With a cable pull converter this works like a charm with my Shimano road shifters. Very precise shifts and so much quieter, even on the road. Even with some deliberately janky shifts I haven't dropped the chain.
It's also allowed me to extend my gear range, which is great on steep climbs loaded up with my camping gear. "
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Rugged

Works but tastes grim
Posted19 June 2017
" Tastes odd, not even close to how it is described. Also loses the colour after a while which is pretty weird. "

Happy butt
Posted12 August 2016
" Was a bit cautious to move away from aeron, had a great winter of riding in my aeron tights, but these are excellent.
Good firm padding just under your sit bones keeps me going for 5 hour plus rides. They fit well, I was expecting my usual size not to, and they look good.
Logo on the leg is peeling bit they've seen a lot of use. "
Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit, High Quality

Awesome jersey, if you like the fit
Posted2 June 2016
" Full disclosure, I sent it back because I didn't like the fit.
It's kind of relaxed for a road jersey, so if that suits you'd get a nicely made jersey with a dope pattern. "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality

Best all round training tire
Posted15 April 2016
" Was impressed with the 23mm, so went for 28mm. More comfortable and no slower.
One tire was a 25mm in the wrong box, not Wiggles fault but they refunded me. Size difference is not much on 17mm rims. "
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Great Value

Cover my crank arms, stop any scuffs
Posted25 March 2016
" Not much to say really, they're plastic covers for crank arms that are slightly over priced. They fit ok over my Rival 22 cranks, needed a bit of force but no issues once the pedals are on.
Covers up an existing scuff, and has stopped further ones. They seem very tough so don't anticipate I'll ever replace them. "
Pros: Durable, Rugged

The Crono Fluid uses a sealed hydrodynamic system that regulates the effort of the pedalling through a rotor submerged in oil. It smooth and quiet and the frame delivers total stability allowing you to train hard. Superb indoor trainer choice.

I ride a road bike with 142×12 rear axles, is this trainer compatible provided I buy a trainer axle?

Loose or snug fit

According to the sizing chart, I;d need a XL for a 46 chest. Does this give plenty room for wearing base layers/jerseys, or is it a closer fit only suitable for tighter fitting layers
I can just about squeeze a regular hoodie under mine before it gets too snug, 39 1/2 inch chest in a medium

Does the fabric remain waterproof when wearing a rucksack?

Other waterproof jackets have the "tent" effect when worn with a rucksack - rain seeps through where rucksack straps are in contact, mainly on shoulders.
I haven't noticed this myself, been completely dry under my rucksack (Camelbak charge if that makes any difference).
