Good Products

Let’s face it there are good products and then there are terrible ripe offs

 

So if there is something you have found that works for you let others know.

 

More recently I bought a relatively inexpensive pair of Velotex Bib short = Fantastic.

These were not even the top of the line red label but one down (I think the white) as they did not have my size in the red label.

 

Well done to Velotex a South African company making some good quality products. I will keep my eye out for more of there products.

There is a lot of good products but if it does not suit you or your application or your budget (meaning not expensive enough), you will tank it.

 

To me the best bike products out there that I've bought are (in no particular order)

Planet-X saddle = R309 (I've got 4 just incase one gets damaged and I can not find then again)

Chain guide = R350 (expensive but the piece of mind can not be put in Rand value)

Duesouth thermal undershirts = R150.

If it says S-Works on the item, you can buy it with confidence, cause it will not let you down. My other label of choice is Assos!

Not true. There are still a few out there that I'm willing to buy but no one want to part with them. I would love to get a red one.

First Ascent products - good value for money. Bought couple of sets of bibs from them 4 - 5 yrs ago. The guy said they need no special attention, just chuck 'em in the washing machine. They've got no special attention as I don't do the washing and they're still 100%.

 

Still my first choice in comfort too.

White wax based chain lube. I tried the very expensive ones recommended in the surveys, but are back on the wax based.
