"After finding my then 23month old slurping away at my camelbak after one day out riding, i (much to the amusement of my other half) promptly bought the skeeter for her..after all, her ten year old brother has one so why not!! She's two and a half now, and has had almost daily use.. it's still going strong and no leaks.. even though it's often taken for a walk around the house by it's tube.. She often asks to wear it even when we just walk to grandma's, so i assume it's also comfy.. never leaves any marks on her shoulders so proves even for it's size and lack of padding on the straps that it's still well made. Should be a good investment seeing as her brother's still fits him fine as it has enough adjustment in the shoulder straps. No waist strap but who needs it at their age.. number one son has never had any issues with it falling off his shoulder around Dalby."

"fantastic output and battery life on this beauty, and it's getting more use than my torch for non-biking related 'jobs' too. solidly built, nice quality, good feel to it, vright enough on lowest setting to stop rabbits in their tracks (unfortunately) and overall - looks good!!
a big Fonzie thumbs up and a 'Heyyyyyyyyyy' for this twinkler!

Double-looped cable for use with all Kryptonite U-locks, disc locks and padlocks. Braided steel cable has greater core density than twisted cable, increasing cut resistance.

"i've got nothing but praise for this cable - even though it doesn't really do much - then again - it does keep your pride and joy safe - or at least safer.
tend to use this as extra security when on the lockable bike rack in conjunction with my magnum cable bike lock, and it's a bit more peace of mind when secured with it at home too.

"a must for anyone who's constantly changing the pressure in their shocks!!
compact, accurate and reliable, with a nifty valve system - extrend the valve connector and screw it onto the shock - then wind the connector back into the valve on the pump - reduces loss of air when connecting and more importantly - when removing.... as long as you remember to wind out the valve before removing the connector from the shock... confuzzled?? worry not, my 7yr old can work it with no problems :)
has had plenty of use since i purchaced it and have had no problems with it at all.

"Six year old Padawan Learner fitted his new 'puddle stoppers' in 15mins with slight help on fiddly bits, especially the clip on part of the rear guard, but once the clip is on it takes a good tug to get it off again.... they would fit better on a 20" wheeled steed, but they certainly do the job on the current 16" one.
Front mudguard has a thumbscrew fitting so once the bracket is in place, the guard can be removed without too much fuss..
Same for the rear one really, once the fitting is screwed in place and adjusted, the mudguard just slides in and of it, but only when the clip-on part has been release from around the base of the seat stay.
both are 'slightly' adjustable in the angling and height etc, but not a lot.
product gets two thumbs from Padawan!"

"our 6yr old says these are the best gloves he's ever had! AND even make him go faster*...Wow!
the palm is not padded but it IS durable and there's no sign of stitching becomming loose even after 3months use.
not waterproof obviously but certainly protect little fingers and palms when over confident biking goes wrong.
he has the Medium size and his hand is (edge of hand to base of thumb) a tad over 6cm in width.
The thumb also has the flannel? finish for wiping away sweat.. nice touch.
*debatable.. it's a confidence thing."

How big are the loops? (internal diameter). Will they fit over the ends of a Abus Granit Steel O Flex 1000?

a teardrop shaped 5inches - one and a quarter inch at its widest but sliiightly plyable. i can (with a little persuasion due to rubber grips against the rubberised coating of the cable) get it over the end of the handlebar which is about 3inch in diameter.. and that's without altering the teardrop shape of the loop.

what is the length of this product ?

at its smallest - slightly over a very respectable 8inches... or 20.5cm if you prefer.
with the tube extended and handle pulled out - an eye watering 18.5inch.. or 47cm.
