    To be certain you want to read the bearing number from the bearings in your hub. This is simple to do, remove the pre-load adjusters from the axle and then you should be able to read the number.

    Google that number and you will find websites selling them, or take it to your local bearing/fastener shop.

    SKF, FAG, and NSK are all recommended bearing manufacturers. I would avoid buy from eBay and Amazon due to fakes.

    If you like the POC, why not buy the same again with MIPS?

    :( something I tried this winter is cut sections from an emergency/survival blanket to wrap my feet, then put shoes on.

    What if I said dry?

    Do any overshoes exists for people with skinny ankles/calfs? Trying to find some that have cuffs that will actually be tight to my legs.

    Many thanks for the offer. I don’t think a double wheel bag would fit in my bike travel case. I will keep it in mind.

    After a wheel bag. Even better if I can collect in central London tomorrow.

    Let me know what you got. If you have two padded bags would be nice. Happy to buy one (doesn’t have to be padded).

    Yes, I’m looking for an alternative to those Endura gloves as they have the issue of the inner lining pulling out when you remove your hand.

    These Shimano gloves seem like a close match.
