Looking for a bit of advice as I don't know much about bikes. I checked my bike and the rim says 29er 622 x 19C 6061, will the 29x2.2 fit my bike okay?
Ordered 2 2.2 29er for front and back, really tempted by the 2.4 for the front but doubt I have the clearance and think it will be over kill once the worst of the winter is over

Such is the pursuit of profit.
Their jackets used to come with a two way front zip which was great for venting and the cuffs used to be adjustable. None of these features appear even on the more expensive jackets because the manufacturers are so obsessed with reducing costs.
Altura used to make really good value, good quality cycling gear but nowadays, even the more expensive stuff, tends to be just glorified bin liners.

I tend to buy DHB stuff these days. Not the best quality but at least it's reasonable value and reasonably hard wearing.
I always wear one when operating the Nespresso machine.
One should never skimp on appropriate safety-gear.
On me phone so can't link, but check out planet X for some pretty decent altura deals if you're looking for them.

I can’t argue with the hans dampf and magic Mary which has always been a downhill favourite, the nobby nic ain’t bad for winter rides it’s not as grippy as the hd and mm but for a basic off-road bike I’ve been happy enough, although I’ve started to find maxis tyres better for the bigger suspension enduro bike
Have these on my Scott and not great in the wet. Will be changing soon probably for high rollers.

Some good prices there. Couldn't find any bargains I could not resit. So probably better to save your money until winter sales kick in properly.
At least that's how I trick myself into not buying more cycling stuff.

XT m8000 double crank £88 (now sold out) versus £129 wiggle
XT single with 32T CR £99 versus £96 but no Chainring worth £25 Wiggle

Shimano Ultegra FC-R8000 Chainset £191 versus £249 wiggle

as always shop around, never buy a deal until you google usual sources.
