4.0 out of 5 stars a real "complete" book for cycling, 2 Aug 2010
That was my first book for cycling, so I decieded yo buy a compact referance. Now I think I choose the right one. This book is a good reference to start getting info about the tools, the bike it self, training, overall rules on the road etc. Maybe not a specific book for further details but a good point to start. Everybody's familiar with bikes and riding, but if you are interested in details and looking for technical info about cycling, this book is the right tool.

3.0 out of 5 stars Training support, 9 April 2010
If you are looking for additional support for your muscels which yu are not using directly for running, this book can be helpfull. But if you already have good books for running, you should have enough info for this kind weight trainings, even with free weights such as dumbbells or your body self. It is not a must to get this book, but if you like to read about running as much as to run, than go for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars a secret weapon for endurance sports, 9 April 2010
I decieded to get this book, after I saw the name as refferences in many different books for ultra running, marathon training and long distance run articles on the net. Now I think this is the bible of the endurance sports on the mental side.
If a long distance run based 10% on physical power and 90% on mental, this is a must have book.
My biggest problem was to read the name of the author, so here we go; he is pronaunced as "Chick-Send-Me-High-Lee" :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good covers, 9 April 2010
This review is from: Folklore (Audio CD)
A good album including good covers, like traditional folk songs of different nations. Blended with David Eugene sound. Dark music like always, dark on the album cover, dark on sound...

4.0 out of 5 stars good live performance, 9 April 2010
This review is from: Hoarse (Audio CD)
This is a good live performance. Simple sound, less instruments, good mixing and a pure album. Wish there were more visuals in the booklet.

4.0 out of 5 stars a classic, 9 April 2010
This review is from: Mosaic (Audio CD)
A typical sound for Woven Hand. If you are new to David Eugene Edwards sound, this is a good sample for it. A little bit dark, depressive and similar to Bad Seeds of Nick Cave.


Nike Dri-Fit Tech 3/4 Tight, Size XL
Nike Dri-Fit Tech 3/4 Tight, Size XL

4.0 out of 5 stars running comfort, 9 Nov 2009
3/4 tights are best friend for autmn days. Warmer than short tights and cooler than whole tights. This item has a good cut and it fits very well to your body, so you feel comfortable even on your long runs. The back zip-pocket is a little bit small, it is not so easy to carry energy-gels, money and keys at the same time. The good thing on this zip-pocket is, it is well isolated that the goods you are carrying are not getting wet from your sweet. The dri-fit technolgy is ideal for running on rainy days, so you don't have the feeling "wet legs" after first minutes under the rain. This product was shipped in a well-isolated package and in a very short time after my order, the supplier was also satisfying. A good monet-quality ballance.

4.0 out of 5 stars good quality cube, 9 Nov 2009
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Rubik's Cube (Toy)
This is the best quality cube I've ever hade. The stickers are durable, the rotation is very clearly, even with one hand. Some cubes have mechanical difficulties, you should have the right angle with less tolerance to rotate a column, but this cube is very easy to rotate even the colums and rows are not at the same angle.

4.0 out of 5 stars the guy who ran the Sahara, 9 Nov 2009
Ray Zahab is the guy who ran the Sahara with two other ultra-runners. This book is the story of the process, how he started to run and became an ultra-runner. Even if you think to start to running or already have years under your belt, this book can encourage you to run "longer". It sounds weird and crazy to run 100's of miles and kilometers, even for runners, but give yourself a chance and read his story. His story is a good proof that ultra-running is more than a sport.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good help for your next step, 9 Nov 2009
This is a great "technical" book without unnecessary text and images. It includes detailed charts for athlets from every level. You can use this book to improve your PB and fine tune your training style. The binder form and covered sheets are practical for outdoor use and you can easily drop it into your training bag. If you are training by your self without a coach, this book is a must have.
