Also, paired with Zefal Croozer on my down tube. Had both for last 2 years and they work well to keep 90% of rain/ mud off rider. Previously had highly rated SKS blades but bit off a faff to deal with when removing wheels for maintenance.
I’ve got both this and an ass saver. This is way better as it is the full size of the wheel plus it sits much closer to the wheel giving a lot more protection. It also tightens up really well so is rarely squint. Second only to full length guards which could not be fitted on my bike due to brake clearance. You can also get a set with a down tube front guard which is not as good but better than nothing.
I have one of these on my road bike. When secured properly (as close to the wheel as possible) it works very well - it's infinitely better than my ass saver which although it works well on my mountain bike has no useful effect on my road bike. Edit to add I also have a lezyne pocket drive and can second the above recommendation
How does the rolling resistance go? I'd imagine an increase from in resistance from foam.
That's the plan for one of the bikes, but not the daily beater. I have some silicon pipe fitting lube, so will give that a go.
I have these in my e mountain bike. Best £50 ive ever spent. Fitted one in the front tyre 1st & then kept getting punctures in the back so decided to fit another one. I dont do competitive down hill or anything but To be honest i cant tell the difference in comfort to riding a normal bike tyre
Fairy liquid is abrasive and shouldn't be used in contact with rubber or treated metal (like rims) at all. I know it's only a tiny amount but it still absolutely shouldn't be used like that. Find yourself a good non-abrasive lubricant instead. You can get a can or bottle for £4-£7 and it would last you years.

I have no use for a 2000 lumen light (because I'm not an off-road cyclist), but the massive battery life on lower settings is very tempting. 31 on 120 lumens would easily get me through a weeks' commuting. 230 hours in daytime flash mode sounds like a fantastic DRL that would need charging every couple of months. Love my Cycliq lights for city commuting but really wish the battery life was better.

I am glad at least we are now clear that Revel and Rift are different helmets with different specs. With regard to the vents, I am no helmet expert but buying advice for helmets seem to make a big deal about the number of vents for the comfort of wearing it whilst you are sweating out riding the bike.

You can get the yellow and red (some sizes) for the same price too. Good deal compared to other retailers selling.
I don't think you can compare to the sun since the sun actually produces light but this just reflects. Hence for your description to be true, the headlights of the car must be in reality brighter than the sun because even if the reflected rays were the same brightness of the sun, due to the polarisation the intensity would be lower. ;-)

Thanks op just took the plunge, hopefully this will make my commute to work less of a struggle! I'm assuming I don't need different inner tubes for these tyres?!
Sounds complicated! Thanks for the help.
The 50-559 means 50mm wide and the 559 is the rim diameter. That's whats referred to as 26" which is daft as that's the diameter including the tyre, which is of course different with different tyres! Short answer: Yes, they'll fit!

christ, you can get a 350kg engine stand for 45 quid - 75 quid for a bike stand!?
Cheaper on Amazon
I would have to disagree with the last 2 comments. Those stands use a quad foot design. They take up a lot more room then the twin foot design like this one. I got an Edinburgh Bikes stand that's basically the same as this one for £50 and its perfect. It takes up such little room and yet its very stable. Sure the four foot design is stable but its a more awkward design.
these do nothing to justify there value and i do have a few park bits that do........if you can wait for stock these are the best value around really good quality......lidl bike stand
