Oakley Sunglasses Radar EV Black Polished Black/Prizm Trail Size:One Size
Oakley Sunglasses Radar EV Black Polished Black/Prizm Trail Size:One Size
Price: £100.75

5.0 out of 5 stars simply the best cycling glasses I have ever had co, 29 Sept. 2015
The aesthetics is spot on the price discounted, the quality without common measure. I own three pair of cycling glasses and these are by far the best! The vision field is calibrated for cycling and the clarity f the lenses is amazing, before that I was using an old radar and the upgrade has been an excellent especially when you consider that I have been able to resell the old one for almost the same price as the one I pad for the new ones. Just buy them and provided look after your glasses, you will be able to use down the line for me it will take me a good years to upgrade because Oakley's reputation for quality and reliability is not to be discussed anymore it is just a fact of life.


Le monde est clos et le désir infini
Le monde est clos et le désir infini
by Daniel Cohen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.70

4.0 out of 5 stars Bienvenue dans le monde moderne où la croissance est et restera surement lente et inegalitaire, 3 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Daniel Cohen n'est plus à présenter, il est l'un des économiste-essayistes les plus lus et écoutés de France. Ce sera donc sans surprise que ce dernier opus sera surement un autre succès de librairie compte tenu de ses talents de vulgarisation. Dans ce nouvel opus, il traite du sujet central de la croissance économique qui, selon lui, est devenue la religion du monde moderne. De ce qui est de sa thèse, cette dernière est dans le prolongement de celle d'Homo economicus. Mais cette fois, il retrace l'histoire de la croissance afin de démontrer que la nouvelle révolution 'industrielle', celle des technologies de la communication, est à ce jour peu génératrice de croissance, au contraire elle est même au cœur de l'insécurité, des inégalités et de l'anxiété qui caractérisent la réalité française. En effet, pour étayer ce constat il se sert de tout l'arsenal des humanités et autres sciences sociales pour retracer, expliquer et critiquer ce que la croissance était, ce qu'elle est ou pas et ce qu'elle pourra être à condition que nos sociétés redéfinissent l'idée de progrès. En somme, c'est tout un programme qui selon moi nécessiterait un ouvrage plus conséquent/volumineux et c'est donc pourquoi je pense que ce livre est plus un préambule à d'autres. De ce qui est de mon unique bémol, je pense que 'Le monde est clos' enfonce une porte qu'il avait déjà ouverte dans de précédents livres. Cependant, cela reste une lecture agréable, pleine d'érudition et de références que j'explorerais dans un futur proche. Pour conclure, ce livre vous aidera à décrypter les transformations du monde à travers les yeux du Professeur Cohen qui revoit ses thèmes de prédilection à l'aune des états de l'art de sa discipline mais aussi de celles dont il est un grand lecteur.

Pour ce qui est de son plan, l'ouvrage est découpé comme suit:

Introduction
1 Aux sources de la croissance
L'espèce humaine
L'exode
Le 13 novembre 2026
Naissance de la monnaie
Le vol de l'histoire
Du monde clos à l'univers infini
2 L'avenir, l'avenir!
La singularité est proche
Où va le travail humain?
La croissance disparue
Marx à Hollywood
De collapsus novum
3 Repenser le progrès
La (nouvelle) grande transformation
L'autonomie et la survie
Mythes et ressentiments
Le double bind
Comment peut-on être danois?
L'endogamie sociale
Au-delà de la croissance
Conclusion

This book is to cycling what the . Law is to lawyer! This is a very funny read discussing the rules of cycling for cyclist who and are serious about the sport. The rules covers the ethics, the style or the equipment required to practice the sport. This no hipster thing by the way and it is a real shame it isn't available in French as the word needs to be spread Velominati the continent needs you.

See.Sense. 2.0 Light Set - 95 Lumens Rear, 160 Lumens Front

5.0 out of 5 stars A star in the making, 11 July 2015
I have been following this company since its Kick-starter's days and I could not wait to get my hands on this product. To be honest, I was enthusiastic but equally a bit sceptical. A start up... product not available in major outlets... and then I got their newsletter, they were on Chain reaction and for me that meant endorsement! As an engineer, I have tendency to be gizmo friendly and that is what this set of lights are in my opinion. Even more they are great pieces of innovations bringing the best of engineering creativity to a more than mature and BORING product. Safety concerns addressed through this design are significant and as a commuter in London I could literally write one or two dissertations on how and how often I nearly got run over by cars, lorries, buses, motorcycles or even cyclist! It is war!!!!! I meant jungle, anyway you get the point 
Design wise the set looks attractive there are no switches which is a bit deconcerting at the beginning but trust me it takes 2 minutes to work it out. There is a particular detail I would like to congratulate this company for and that is what, in the jargon, we call planned obsolescence. I am very happy to see that they did not succumb to those sirens since there is the possibility to upgrade the battery when the latter dies. A bit long but in sum this is a great product do not hesitate, I wish to this company a long and lucrative life and actually I wish myself the same and hopefully my lights will allow me to just do so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good cream for saddle sore, 31 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When you need some you better get some. The people using chamois know that it is no joking matter, it is excruciately painful can prevent you from practising a sport for a little while. Im glad I went for this product as the formulation is not greasy and the smell is rather natural and the cherry on the cake is that it works!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent tool, 31 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this wrench to replace my rudimentary torque wrench I have been using for my bike, and since I decided to do most of my maintenance myself I decided to upgrade. So far it has been working fine on the bike but one should consider that I am talking about small values between 5 and 8 nm. The tool comes with a casing that should prevent me and others to abuse it so I hope it will last. In sum, it has been working fine and the price is low (no intention to spend 100 quids on a wrench just to get it in blue or red and get a calibration certificate)


Belles d'un jour : Histoire des grandes classiques
Belles d'un jour : Histoire des grandes classiques
by Philippe Bouvet
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Un beau livre qui raconte l’histoire des classiques, 23 May 2015
Dans le monde cycliste, les classiques occupent une place particulière. A l’opposé des grands tours, ces dernières durent un jour qui transporte les coureurs dans l’enfer des pavés Roubaisiens aux vertiges du Milan San Remo. Selon les avis, ces courses ont une forme de pureté que les grandes n’ont plus tant leurs classement généraux se jouent par un savant mélange de stratégies et condition physique. Sur les classiques vous trouverez ces mêmes ingrédients mais il faudra ajouter une bonne dose de courage et beaucoup de cœur. Car c’est cette dernière qui caractérise les récits que cet ouvrage nous livre, du début du dernier siècle aux mythiques intempéries presque sibériennes qui coutèrent à Hinault le blaireau l’usage de quelques doigts. Ce livre navigue entre le photo-documentaire et des textes écrits avec la passion et l’expérience du célèbre Philippe Bouvet et ses collègues. Le livre est découpé comme-suit :
• Liège Bastogne-Liége
• La flèche wallonne
• Paris-Roubaix
• Paris-Tours
• Tours des Flandres
• Milan-San Remo
• Tour de Lombardie
• Amstel Gold Race
• Les modernes
• Bordeaux-Paris
• En seconde division

A lire et à partager entre afficionados de la petite et ceux n’ont pas encore eu la chance de se faire infecter par ce virus.
