Gobi XM is for The Chameleon:Medium Spine: If you have an intermediate degree of spinal flexibility (approximately 90 degrees between your straight legs and your back when bending over as far as you can, keeping your legs straight a shoulders' width apart), you are a chameleon. Your degree of spinal flexibility helps you so far, before you need to rotate your pelvis slightly to achieve fully the performance position.

Founded in 1996, Fizik (or Fi'zi:k to be more accurate!) are primarily known for their range of bike saddles, which are aimed at the performance and racing end of the market. Typically they're lightweight and sleek - you don't find any beginner style chunky padded saddles in their ranges. The company is owned by Selle Royal, an Italian saddle maker, and Fi'zi:k obtains it's name from the phonetic spelling of the word physique. Recently they've branched out into other areas, such as cycling shoes and road bar tape, as well as road finishing kit such as bars, stems and seatposts, mainly finished in their customary black colour scheme. Famous riders to have competed using Fi'zi:k's products include Geraint Thomas, Phillipe Gilbert, and Rohan Dennis.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles... Find out more details about Wiggle here.
