5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent kit, 14 May 2016

This top and bib shorts are excellent quality. The legs and waist have a sticky strip to stop them riding up. The stitching is good quality and the pad has been very comfortable for rides of over 100 miles. Highly recommend these.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't take a chance like I did, stay away!, 5 Dec. 2015
Well, I thought I'd ignore the bad reviews and give this a chance. Sometimes bad reviews are really down to pilot error but definitely not this one! The pads are foam and not fine bristles like more expensive ones and do just what other reviewers say. They are reluctant to give the paint up! They are ineffective at putting the paint actually on the wall. I wasn't defeated and found some compatible pads on eBay that have bristles. After a bit of trimming with scissors I got these to fit. Again, just as other reviewers report, the pads fall out of the holder.
I really did want to like this but the whole thing plus bristle pads now lie at the bottom of the bin. I've no idea how this ever made it into production. I can only imagine the person rubber stamping it had just been told they'd won the lottery and didn't give a monkey's!
It wasn't my maiden voyage with pads either, I've been using them for many years but more expensive ones. If ever there was a product befitting the saying "you get what you pay for" then this is it. Go for the more expensive ones, buy cheap buy twice as they say!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential piece of quality kit, 31 Aug. 2015

An essential piece of kit that's a must for every road cyclist. There isn't a fitting on my bike that this doesn't fit. It's very well made, robust and packs away in its own case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for every car boot., 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would of given this 5 stars but the first one I received broke after 6 tyres. I'd only had it a few days when, after checking my 4 tyres, was demonstrating how great it was to a colleague at work. Did 2 of his tyres fine then on the third it made a loud bang and the sound of the compressor was replaced by the whirring of a motor. I thought I'd give another a chance so Amazon replaced it. The first one they sent must have been an older design as the buttons under the screen were different. This one has been fine. Blows a tyre up from 17 to 32 in less than a minute. It isn't noisy and stores away nicely in its own bag. So far so good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better than I was expecting!, 19 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wouldn't have expected a 12v vacuum to have been able to suck a fart in but this has really surprised me. OK, you're never going to get dog hairs out of carpet pile, but for everything else it's excellent. I brush the carpet and get it all into a pile and this sucks it straight up. The nozzle extends and gets the dirt down the side of the seats. There's a brush attachment that is good for the dashboard and upholstery. It really surprised me and an excellent buy. The only downside is the power plug. It's not the greatest of fit and the slightest knock can cut the power. All I do is wrap the very long lead around the handbrake a couple of times and it's fine then.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit but poor battery life and memory card, 19 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on the strength of the reviews following a crash where the other party told a pack of lies. This would've been ideal for disproving his fictitious version of events. It might sound like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, but who knows if and when it'll happen again. I went for the option of paying £49, which included a 32Gb MicroSD card. It arrived in good time and well packaged.
I fully charged it, installed it on the windscreen and off I went recording my journey in full HD. I was amazed at the wide angle of view, excellent coverage. My crash had been a front end side swipe and this would've covered it. The display is good with lots of info and very easy to set up.
All's sounding well but now for the bad news. I'd bought this one on the strength of it having a built in battery. I didn't fancy a lead dangling down the windscreen. After only 20 minutes it packed up and I had to plug it in using the mile long lead!!
I contacted the manufacturer and their customer service was very good. I was emailed straight back saying that, according to their technical staff, 20 mins is all the internal battery is good for. Oh well I can cope with a lead dangling I suppose.
Within 2 weeks of getting this the screen icons disappeared and all that it displayed was a live moving video image of whatever the lens was pointing at. All buttons did nothing other than turn it on or off. I deployed the tried and trusted paper clip on the reset button several times but no change. I traced the problem to the memory card. You might wonder why I've given this 4 stars but, as soon as I swapped that to the Sandisk one from my GoPro, it was back perfect again. The supplied card really would be out of its depth in the bargain bin in a pound shop. It's a name I've never heard of so clearly very cheap. Now, this is where their customer service fell down. I emailed them asking for a new card and heard nothing and still haven't, even though I resent my request a few times. I'd had emails about the battery life and they'd emailed me a copy of the instructions but, as soon as I was asking for something with a cost, all went quiet. Speaking of instructions, do the same as I did. The ones in the box are only any use if you've got an electron microscope handy. I've never seen print so small.
So, in conclusion this is a great piece of kit and could save a lot of heartache if you're unfortunate to have a crash. Your own witness that nowadays can't be challenged. The footage goes straight onto my iPad and the quality, even at night, is very good. I've only used it on full HD with it auto recording over itself when the card is full. You'll never make a blockbuster out of the footage but it's more than good enough to show registration numbers and vehicle/pedestrian movements. I joined it to my 52" TV with an HDMI lead and it was very good. The audio is crisp and clear. Just make sure the fat lady you've just commented on doesn't turn out to be your independent witness!
My suggestion is go for the cheapest buying option with this camera and get your own Sandisk card to go in it. For the price you get everything, camera, card, lead, cradle etc.

Look very sturdy with smooth edges so no chance of nipping the tube if you're careful. I've wrapped some duck tape around the stem to prevent scratching the rims.
