Good value product that performs adequately
on 10 October 2009
I purchased this product for my mens 19" hybrid bicycle primarily to protect it from the rain as I have no space indoors to store it.
It's a strong and durable nylon cover which feels strong enough to withstand wear and tear and to protect my bicycle from the natural elements. The size fits comfortably and doesn't touch the floor (which is a good thing). There are velcro straps on the front and rear to keep the cover secure during strong winds, however it is such a snug fit already that this is not necessary.
I've had it a few days now and so far it's done a good job at keeping the bicycle nice and clean. However it has just started to rain heavily and I went outside to check the water resistance of the cover - not very good. It keeps about 80% of the rain out but still leaves the seat and frame with a thin layer of water.
I guess it does the job though - it's a cover. And in comparison to the other products on the market, it's very good value for money and will do the same job. It's also black so will hide dirt and watermarks.
I've awarded it 4 stars simply because it's not as water resistant as I'd hope it'd be. It will withstand light rain but during a heavy downpour it will take a beating. Otherwise it's a good product to protect your bicycle outdoors.
