Just got my new bike (specialized hardock pro disc) and i have got most of my gear like waterproofs, cycle computer, lights, pump and pedals. there are a few things i still want but would like some advice off you guys, im after —
* a lock, something small enough to carry in my bag and not be too heavy, dont really want to have to spend more than £35 on it.
* Mudguards, front and rear, just been looking at the topeak defenders, not sure on what type to get for the front, the ones that go on the fork or the ones that go on the frame, whats best?
*Shoes, spd’s, ones that i can also walk in.
* im also after a bag which i could use for day to day stuff on the bike, but also something which could be big enough to fit some extra clothes in for when i do the coast to coast.
i have a set of the crud catcher mudguards, front is the under frame type. rear guard is excellent, still get a small amount of spray from front wheel though, just ordered one of these neogaurds to hopefully stop that.
Cheers for the advice guys, I ended up getting the crudcatcher (Front and back)from Evans, fair enough. Could of got it cheaper online but I wanted to see what it’s like and I’ve bought nearly everything else online and think my postie is sick of me.
Going to purchase a saddle bag next, it’s gonna be the topeak small wedge one but don’t know whether to get the strap on or clip in version.
After that I’d say I’m just about done, just need backpack and shoes.
