5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable!, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Praesagium (Kindle Edition)
Starts slowly with a number of seemingly unconnected stories. As you progress it becomes clearer how they're in fact interlinked. A great read!


Cycling the Great Divide 2nd Edition: From Canada to Mexico on North America's Premier Long Distance Mountain Bike Route
Cycling the Great Divide 2nd Edition: From Canada to Mexico on North America's Premier Long Distance Mountain Bike Route

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent detailed guide., 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant and probably essential guide if you're planning to ride the divide. Lots of detail on the route and any towns, obstacles, etc you'll encounter. It probably goes without saying that you'll need to buy the maps as well. If you're just after a general book about the divide this wouldn't be the one to choose as unless you're actually planning to ride it you might find it a bit dry. That's not a criticism of the book. In the same vein you wouldn't buy a haynes manual to read about a car you were interested in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great bit of kit to keep your Child supported when seated., 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A simple idea well executed. Highly recommended. The waist strap is a bit of a faff to use and probably not necessary if your child is like mine and a tight fit in the Bumbo. That doesn't really detract from the overall score for me however.

1.0 out of 5 stars I didn't get a ceramic bearing version delivered., 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as it seemed a bargain price for a ceramic BB. When it arrived it was just a standard steel bearing BB. My one star review is not for the product or service as such just that I didn't get what was ordered. Road.cc gave the ceramic BB a good review in their test. The price is ok for a normal steel BB if that's what you'd be happy with. Amazon/Market place seller were good with the refund but it would've been better if the item had been listed correctly to begin with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sounding with a long battery life, 10 April 2014

These work really well, sound good and last ages on a charge. The charger is a proprietary one so don't lose it! Would happily recommend these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels like a quality item., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's not much you can say about a charger but I'm happy with this one. It's a much tighter fit than my old one (VW T5 socket) which is good as it's unlikely to wobble out. The coiled cable is a good balance between chunky charger cables of old and using included cables with flap in the wind. The plastic used is of a good quality and it feels like an item that will last. I've got a Samsung Galaxy S4 so apps like current widget won't display precise charging rates. Suffice to say my old 'normal' charger gives '0 mAh' charging (ie charges the phone slowly when driving with satnav & back ups going on, etc) while this gives '1 mAh' charging, a higher rate, even if the phone stops the precise rate being displayed.
If you were looking to buy as a present it comes in very smart packaging rather than just a cellophane bag like cheaper chargers do. There isn't a charging LED which is a positive/negative depending on your view. Personally I only used the led to see if the charger had stayed in place. As this is a tighter fit, I don't think I need worry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but looking old fashioned now., 17 Jan 2014

A good guide book but lacking somewhat in the light of more recent styles of guide/route book. Compared to the vertebrate collection the text is a little dry and the mapping not as clear & user friendly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dead on arrival & inaccurate description, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pristine packaging is an exaggeration. The condition was good but the box has tears where tape was removed and 2 big Amazon stickers on the top. I'm not one to get excited by having the box but don't claim a pristine box when it isn't.

The box condition however matters little when the device itself isn't functional. The battery was flat on arrival so I put it on charge and a battery icon appeared on screen once it had time to charge I switched it on only to find the device sat on the start screen and wouldn't switch on any further. It's annoying that when you have got an open box item that time hasn't been taken to switch it on and check that it's functional.

The description of the marks on the device was also a little vague. There was a 1" x 1" Mark on the rear of the case along with a number of unmarked light scratches. There also spears to be dust/lint on the screen surround. Again this might not have bothered me had the phone been working.

My expectation of an Amazon warehouse product was of a lightly used/unused returned item as opposed to what seems to just be a secondhand phone, and a broken one at that. I returned it the same day and I hope I will be refunded swiftly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing travelogue alternative, 17 Oct 2013
Very enjoyable, seeing many different views of an environment makes it all the more entertaining. The articles are far from the usual chronological recollection of events!
