"Enables you to see what you are filming, and make quick easy adjustments to any settings you want. You can instantly play back clips/stills and delete and film again if you didn't get the shot you wanted.
Much less faff than messing about with buttons.
But most key is being able to see what you are doing with the camera and what is actually being filmed rather than what you think is being filmed.
worth every penny"
Pros: Lightweight, Good Fit, enables you to see what you are filming
Cons: none

"Absolutely no point in paying for high priced shades, as these are as good as ones selling for a couple of hundred.
Polarizing is great - very clear and distinct vision, fit perfectly, and importantly no steaming up, even when going over the lake district passes sweating buckets in 28c for the whole day.
They look good too, which is a bonus for those who like to feel they are wearing good looking as well as good technical kit.
Would recommend to anyone"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit, don't steam up
Cons: none

"This shoe is not waterproof as claimed - the minute there is light rain I get soaked and water puddle and it's not coming from my socks, as my waterproof trousers go all the way down too and over the shoes protecting them from this issue. My non waterproof shoes are drier than these.
Adjustability - there is none in terms of cleat/foot position. The cleat plates are sealed into the base of the shoe (presumably to stop water ingress that way), so you only have the option of putting the cleat into either of the two holes in the cleat - you cannot move the cleat plate forward and back. This means if you foot does not fit perfectly into those options, you are riding with your foot in an incorrect position. Result of this can be knee injuries through incorrect alignment
I have very wide feet, but found these to be overly roomy, which is a first for me!
Basically these are not used at all as can't afford knee issues and can't cope with how much water comes into the shoe, and I am better off wearing my non waterproof ones and keeping drier!
Big waste of money"
Pros: none
Cons: Low Quality, Poor Fit, not waterproof as claimed, not adjustable and risk of injury as a result

Value for money dual sided SPD pedal, a favorite XC mountain bike pedal. Super-compact and lightweight design for a multitude of cycling uses. Sealed cartridge bearing spindle keeps out water and mud for a smooth action, and makes for a durable pedal.

"I have used these for decades, including overseas. They just don't wear out even after thousands of miles. They can take lots of use and abuse,on road and off road and still run as smooth as they day I got them. They are a great price, and I really can't see the benefit of paying a lot more for the higher models Shimano offer, unless you are completely obsessed about a few grams weight difference."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, work forever!
Cons: none

"Good size and no plastic taste, plus device on lid to close off to avoid spills - great if having to put it in something other than your bottle cage. can't ask for any more than that from a standard bottle."
Pros: High Quality, no horrible plastic taste
Cons: none

"ok if want just a basic set - expected better after seeing great reviews for them. After reading these I was very 'underwhelmed' by the product.
But if just wanting a basic set with changeable lenses as a starter then good value price wise.
Come in good solid case-ideal if transporting and concerned re knocks
Steamed up every time I stopped and took a little while to clear once on the move."
Pros: Versatile, Good Fit, great for those on budget or as first purchse
Cons: steam up too easily

Two PC-951 chains which are Sram's economical PowerChain but still allow accurate shifting, excellent wear resistance, and superior durability. Like all PowerChain II chains, the PC-951 uses Chrome Hardened rivet pins for increased durability.
 

compatibility with shimano slx shadow 9 speed rear mech

Can younus this chain with the above rear mech, and if so will it fit both the medium and long cage mechs?
