Good fit. I like the way they offer sizing based on hand measurements. Good colour - always putting mine down - and other makes tend to blend into the surroundings too easily. Only had them for end of season so cannot comment onndurability but handling well so far

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and easy to fit, 18 Nov 2012

This review is from: Tortec Tour Rear Rack (Misc.)
Good strong rack with inbuilt panel to act as rear mudguard. Plenty of adjustment for most bikesall fittings provided including stainless fittings - but on my Specialised Crosstrail the seat post brazeons are a little low down causing the rack to tilt forward. So to get a horizontal fit I bought a combined seatpost clamp/rack fitting for a tenner which sorted this adjustment easily. Now all is good
I am using this with Altura Rack top bag instead of rucksack for commuting - great alternative for winter riding as I now get the benefit of rear venting on my rain jacket

5.0 out of 5 stars Grippy and roomy, 29 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Roomier than first appears. Great for my 23 mile round trip commute: food box, spare clothes, tools and tube etc - plus room in separate top section for rain jacket and spare gloves etc. Taller than expected so tight fit between saddle and rack (using Tortek rack).

Attaches to velcro base section which is attached to the rack with secure straps. The velcro on the base of the bag is very secure - sometimes its a fight to get it on and off - which is reassuring. have found a plastic envelope is handy to insert between bag and rack before locating bag into final position. Also uses push fit connectors on sides and back to secure.

So far can't comment on how waterproof it is in heavy rain - not been brave enough to put myself to the test yet. But seems pretty robust material and certainly OK in a rain shower. Any mud splashes brush off easily too. Zips seem fairly robust and are covered in use by edge flap so not exposed to rain.

Just what I needed - much more comfortable than a full rucksack.

This is my second pack. Loved the first set I -so figured best get more before they are replaced with a new more expensive version. Luxuriously comfortable and light but warm when needed. Get them while you can

Kinda retro string back driving glove look with imitation suede palms. The leather originals are more protective but the leather gets hard and inflexible, whereas these stay soft and comfortable. They stay in shape and do not ride up the fingers on long rides Padded area covers the whole palm area so good for changing hand positions on the bars

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Peasy - just the job, 3 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Added to an existing TP Link pair connected to my wireless router. Our house includes steelwork which screens out wi fi signals making iPad use difficult in some areas. This piece of kit linked in easily and set up was straightforward. Have also used with a power extension lead so I can play iPad while in the garden - no problems, just plug back in and communications resume after a brief reboot. LED's on the front give a clear idea if things are not right - but keep the leaflet for reference just so you can interpret the different flashing/steady/off statuses. Have had this a couple of months now - and no problems

The ergo profile on these bars are a major step forward for me over the regular shaped compact bars that came on my Trek 1.2. I find I spend loads more time in the drops than before as the hand postion is more comfortable - aligns with my arm postion perfectly. Shame to put bar tape over then as they look so good - but I did. Very happy bunny = :)

Very effective braking. Nice looking (even for a low glam item). Good quality fittings with plenty of adjustment. Longer than original pads so some care needed to align with rims. Will replace the front pads with these if available when the time comes
