"I use a chain cleaner regularly but it always leaves a bit of grit on the chain. This tool makes it so easy to remove the chain. I tried without it and just couldn't do it but with very little force, the link comes free.
It's a bit more messy to clean the chain this way but it will come out like new and will limit damage to the cassette and chainset.
A bit expensive for what it is but you can't do it without it."

"Boy this thing is bright! I call it my aircraft light it's so powerful.
Comes with fixings although it clips nicely over my saddle bag without.

"Perfect to keep dry when the road is still damp/wet. Fairly easy to fit, although it took me longer than anticipated.
They sit really close to the tyres and have multiple configurations to suit all road bike wheels.
A cut might be necessary at the base of rear mudguard.
One last note, they "float" a bit over the tyre and so brushes are supplied to keep them stable against the rim. This did surprise me a bit but it's not noticeable while riding."

"Very pleased with this kit. Contains everything needed to completely replace all brake cables.
Take your time and make sure to keep track of the old cables setup as there are quite a few bits to assemble.

The new Double Fighter II is modeled on the successful concept of its predecessor. The centre, with its light tread rolls smoothly and quietly on tarmac. Off-road, the shoulder's heavy tread provides the necessary grip.

"Swapped fat tyres for these and the difference was instant. Much less friction and a lot more quiet."

"A bit pricey but then it feels really solid and build to last.
Cleans the chain well and as other commented, a bit messy. Not caused by the actual device but by the chain spinning action.
Very easy to clean afterwards."

Tyre Direction

I have just recieved a pair of Continental Double Fighter tyres and I am really pleased with them!
Just one thing when fitting the tyres I presume the front tyre has the front directional arrow facing to the front of the bike!
With the rear does the front arrow face the front or the rear arrow face the front??
The arrow indicates the direction of the rotation.
