"Nice and clean looking, metal casing, they were a paint thickness wider than the chrome ones that came off my old cables so i had to pries open the frame mounts slightly, but not sure if this is a design fault or whether there is just some variation between makes.
Excellent resealable packaging though!"
Pros: High Quality

Corefit Long Sleeve Zip Neck Base Layer AW11
Unbeatable, synthetic base layer engineered with moisture wicking and antibacterial properties.
"I own a few DHB products now and have been very pleased with them all and this was no exception. It fits well, maybe a little long in the body for some, but the arms are long so it doesn't ride up above your wrists (which is important in the chilly weather).
Also, the red sections are a different construction to the black and seemingly more vented, i've had tops before which are more open on the underside of the arm (which is more sensitive) and they offer little initial warmth, where as this gets that balance right.
I've worn it as a base layer and on it's own and equally happy with both, noticeably less sweaty upon arrival. It has a good long zip as well to let plenty of air in if you start to overheat, which will no doubt become more useful as the weather warms up.
Would have preferred it in a different colour or hi-vis, seeing as the most common form of colour blindness is red on green, and i cycle country roads mostly!"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
"Good value for money, not as soft or sticky rubber as ODI's, but at nearly half price can't complain. I think a different pattern option would make them feel softer. End caps are a bit cheap as only push in but don't seem loose.
Muc-Off have now added Nano technology to their award winning cleaning formula. So why is Muc-Off with Nano better? Because the Nano sized particles contained in our revolutionary formula will remove dirt and grime with even less effort!
"I have a road bike and mountain bike and I find this is only any good on mud on the mountain bike, it doesn't work on road bike dirt/brake pad dust as that tends to be more waxy and can't beat the old washing up liquid!"
"You've seen how it just dissolves the grit and grime from your chain and rings, watch it do the same on your carpets! I accidentally trod some bike dirt on the carpet in my hall and thought "well it works on the bike, so why not?". It worked so well i went around the rest of the house an removed 99% of all carpet stains new and old and left no stains!!! OK it's a bit expensive for carpet cleaner, but much cheaper than a new carpet, can't fault the stuff. Will be the housewives favorite in no time, mark my words."
Pros: Great Value, High Quality, Versatile

Workshop Tool Kit
A 30 piece bike tool kit for your workshop needs.
Which Tool Kit?
Posted22 July 2010
"The problem I found when looking for a toolkit is that no one kit does all types of bike. I bought this one for my Full Sus mountain bike as it has the external Bottom Bracket tool and I needed some cable cutters (do yourself a favour, don't use pliers!). I already had another kit which services my road bike with it's ISIS BB, I now have loads of duplicate tools but these are by far the better quality and have good comfortable grips. The magnetic 'bits' tray is a nice touch, especially if splitting a chain, but i'd rather have more 'useful' tools than this and things like tyre levers - which I also have loads of and rarely use. Would benefit from an adjustable spanner and a small screwdriver. Also a compartment within the unnecessary box for 'bits' would be a good thing.
The box is a bit bulky and could be a lot smaller and is quite pricey based on others on the market, but still much cheaper than buying everything individually."
"No punctures in 18 months of daily use, can't argue with that. reflective stripe a genius touch, don't appear to wear down too quick, A little on the heavy side with the wire bead and very tight fitting - good job you don't have to do side of the road repairs!"
Pros: High Quality, no punctures, reflective strip
