@sallgoodman I would go for large - I am 5'10 31" waist and wear large Castelli generally. Some clothing sizes tighter than others however, and I can't comment on these particular bib shorts.

advice please. I'm about a 31 waist but over 6 feet. wear medium in most clothes, medium or large in these is the question? appreciate any help.
cheers

Harry Potter blatantly advertised these jackets in the films.

Knight Rider drove an invisible car and the A Team's van looked like a floating red swoosh when moving.

Most big brand name bikes source frames in this price range from Taiwan …Most big brand name bikes source frames in this price range from Taiwan and China. Not a bad thing and this frame is triple butted its a decent spec frame.


True but the copy above says;

Eddy Merckx Cycles has a rich history as an aluminum frame builder and is therefore launching this premium aluminum racing bike that can compete on results with the best alloy racing machines in the world.

That definitely implies made by Eddy Merckx not we sourced good quality frames from taiwan for our bike and components in China and assembled them in Belgium. I suppose the clue is in the rich history reference. My point is there is a lot of deception in the way bikes are described to make consumers believe a far east sourced bike has strong European connections but really its pretty much a badge slap. Sometimes you see reference to so called European designed frame and yet the exact same geometry is used by many other bikes or the actual manufacturer of the frame for its taiwanese or chinese branded bikes. I'm not saying that is the case here but there is a huge level of dishonesty in the way many bikes are marketed.

Pretty sure both frame and forks are made in Asia which are both described as Eddy Merckx frame and forks. If its important to you to have a bike named after a famous sportsman then ok but otherwise the bike should be assessed completely on reviews and the components you get for the money. Pricing only looks ok to me on skim reading the spec.

Planet X doesn't always get much love. I remember when I first got into cycling & mentioned them to my bro he replied "Planet Flex". I do think the Felt looks a lovely bike though.

How does this compare to the Z85?

Shouldn't be allowed on the roads unless the rider can do a constant 25mph, sick to the back teeth of fair weather bloody cyclists

This is a great price. I paid a similar amount for my Btwin 520 from Decathlon but this is better.

Thanks OP. Great price for a waterproof pannier from a reputable brand. Looks like it's an older model but shouldn't be any difference other than styling. Ordered!

Lucky now to have enough light to dazzle oncoming traffic, the old EverReady lamps use to take two big D batteries front and back and rattled unless you packed them with cardboard.They lasted about 3 hours and gave enough light to slightly illuminate 3 feet ahead.Those were the days.
deal-hunter The lamps were similar to them but the front reflector was in the middle and the rear was length wise with the reflector on the end.

Now I run something a little more up to date. I have some cheap China imports and am not impressed with the battery life at all. But the one's I bought from C&BSeen have stood the test of time and the UK weather (3 years and counting). Had a quick look on their website, and they have the City Slicker, a 1250 lumen light with the batteries inside the unit (removable casette). A claimed run-time of 3.5hrs on max power too. This is the nearest comparison product to the one posted, and can be bought for £54 + about £6 postage. I run a single 1200lu unit on the bars with a diffusion lens, and a spot on my helmet - great combo for night ride XC.

I'm not on their payroll, but I do recommend them a lot! Good British company who you can contact if there are any issues.

Should be fine for that, I would just see if you can try one out somewhere to check the size. The only thing you will probably need to change is the tyres and maybe get some lights and bags that strap to the bike.
