Park Tool Bike Cleaning Brush Set

2.0 out of 5 stars Fine but I'd pay more for better quality next time!, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Starting from left t right as you see the picture: -
The flexible / adjustable brush is ok & easily usable.
This is the main cleaning brush & after one 15 minute clean of my winter road bike it's totally trashed! The bike wasn't that dirty but the scouring pads didn't last 5 minutes! I'll now need to buy another brush.
The bottle brush is the most useful & quality brush here; 1 out 4 is not what I call a good return?
The slim fine gap brush is worse than useless! If you try & clean any tight space the brush just falls out as it slots into the plastic head. This means that anything other than light pressure & the brush head falls out!
Overall I would tell people to avoid this item. It's cheap but it's cheap for a reason - It's rubbish quality & not up to the job.

Cheap and a quality item. At this price I wouldn't be able to head to the DIY store & buy cheaper & it would cost me more in fuel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the dish!, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fine & useful item. The magnets slightly off centre which says more about the way it was made, but does not affect the performance of the dish.

3.0 out of 5 stars This was certainly not a new item., 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saddle arrived & yes it is a genuine Selle Italia saddle. But it has signs of wear & tear, it is a second or it's definitely been used!
Saddle was sold as a new item & this is definitely not the case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Skills instruction video, 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent skills instruction video.
I bought 14 of these (used & new) as small Christmas presents for my U10's team players as I thought it relevant with the coming 2014 World Cup & they all love it.
The skills are numerous, interesting, relevant and are the skills the kids really want to be able to do.
The DVD is now a little dated (10 years old) & as such some of the references are out of date; but my lad likes being able to say which players are doing these skills now! "Messi does that & That's Ronaldo!"
The funny thing is having to explain the existence of an earlier RONALDO to a 9 year old who's only ever seen the good looking version!
The kids love the Brazilian football explanations & references & seem to want to know about the previous great Brazilian players.
My lad loved the explanations about the Flavellas, beach football, Futsal & previous greats.
Buy one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality work stand at a BARGAIN PRICE!, 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This work stand is excellent value and I bought it at £59.99 as a Christmas present from the kids to me.
Dismayed to find it now at £35.99 only a few weeks later but still very happy with the item & have already recommended it to quite a few friends. You can easily pay >£120 for a work stand but DON'T. This will do the job very well.
It's a sturdy, quality, well made piece of kit.
Easy to assemble (if I can do it? Anyone can!).
Easily adjustable to get the right height & angle for working.
The tool tray is very useful & has a magnet in the large tray which is a clever idea.
The stabiliser rod is also a nice touch which helps hold the bike / wheels in place & stops them moving if & when you want.
Couldn't be happier (well only if I'd got it for the £35.99 instead of £59.99!!)
Buy one you will not be disappointed! Several of my mates already have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic Cycle tool kit., 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Could do with a few instructions & proper listing of what each tool is & does; for the beginner (like me).
Could really have done wit a torque wrench, as I've now found out that this is an essential piece of kit for cycle maintenance.
Barring that a fine item for the money & would recommend to others.
