 Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-Speed Double Chainset
Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-Speed Double Chainset
The HollowTech II 11-speed Ultegra chainset offers an ideal balance of light weight and stiffness, making it the perfect choice for both enthusiast and competitive riders
 

Will this work with a 10 speed cassette and is it BB30 compatible?

Most of the answers suggest it is compatible with both speeds, although one Wiggle response suggest it won;t work with 10 speed? Does the chainset come with the bottom bracket and will it fit in BB30 frame? Thanks
Staff Answer
With regard to compatibly, due to warranty and best performance we would suggest that it not compatible but we do believe there are people that have.

Yes it can be used with a BB30 frame you would just need an adapter http://www.wiggle.co.uk/wheels-manufacturing-bb30-to-24mm-crank-spindle-shims/

The chainset comes with a Hollow Tech II bottom bracket

The Selle Turbo in its many variations has probably been the most used saddle by the professional racing community.
 

Are these saddles suitable for women?

I really like the aesthetic of this in particular, and the brand as a whole - are they unisex? Other 'women's specific' saddles are ugly - plastic and high-tech looking.
Staff Answer
Women saddles tend to be winder due to women having a wider sit bone. So this saddle might not be very comfortable.
If you are having trouble finding the right saddle I would recommend measuring you sit bone and chose a saddle based on this.

 Garmin Forerunner 15 GPS Watch
Garmin Forerunner 15 GPS Watch
Run with all your heart. This GPS running watch tracks distance, pace, heart rate1, calories and personal records. Activity monitoring reminds you when it’s time to move and counts steps and calories burned all day.
 

I am training for ultra marathons - is it possible to make the forerunner 15 battery last (or be boosted) for say 12 or 13 hours?

i.e. is there such a thing as an external battery pack which can be plugged in? I'm probably realising the answer is no!
Staff Answer
Unfortunately there isn't really a way to boost the battery. If you are after a watch with a longer battery life I would recommend the Garmin Forerunner 910XT.

The Velo Wireless has a great new look regarding the screen and body. The screen is enlarged making it easier to view the display and with one button control makes this computer very easy to use.
 

Will this device work on a spinning machine?

I have front flywheel design model and was hoping to put the sensor near it in order for it to work.
Staff Answer
Cateye do not recommend this.

Do I need an adapter?

Hi, I have a GT avalanche 1.0 2006, do any need a front or rear adapter to fit these brakes? Thanks

The caliper comes without adapters, you may need to purchase these separately depending on the size of your rotors.

Bike Mount

I have "out-front" bike mounts compatible with Garmin 800, will a Garmin 1000 fit on them? Both the attachment to the device and the space between bars and base of the unit
Staff Answer
Garmin do not list this as compatible. Please see link below

 Octane LR 2 Litre Running Hydration Pack - 2011
Octane LR 2 Litre Running Hydration Pack - 2011
This Lumbar Reservoir (LR) hydration system keeps water secure and amazingly stable for trail running and adventure races. Includes the new Antidote Reservoir with Quick Link System.
 

What is the storage space like?

As there are no pictures of how the upper sections of the pack open up, it's difficult to work out what the pack will hold. I need to accomodate waterproofs & thermals for a mountain race but can't tell whether this will fit the bill. Any info or photos would be great.
Staff Answer
These rucksacks do not offer much by the way of storage space, as they are designed more for running than cycling. There are some small pockets on the exterior of the rucksack that could accommodate a very light waterproof jacket (such as a pac-mac), but I wouldn't suggest trying to cram waterproofs and thermals all this small pack. I would probably recommend the Camelbak Mule 3 for this purpose.

 Strada Double Wireless Cycle Computer
Strada Double Wireless Cycle Computer
The ultra popular Strada Wireless is now available with an extra 9th function - Cadence.
 

is it only the back wheel it needs to be mounted too, to be able to use on a turbo trainer?

Staff Answer
That is correct. Most wireless cycle computers that do not offer Cadence have to be fitted to the front wheel, due to the short reach transmission between the sensor and the computer. However, Cadence computers are fitted to the rear wheel and offer a stronger transmission that can reach from the sensor on the back wheel to the computer on the handle bars. As it is only the rear wheel that spins whilst the bike is on a cycle trainer, Cadence computers are better suited to the job.
