5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent puncture resistance., 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been using these tyres on my Specialized Hardrock 26" MTB. Bought them as replacements for OEM tyres which could not cope with the flints and thorns of our trails, even with useless self sealing fluids in the inner tubes. Have now had six months puncture free riding on South Downs Way, Surrey Hills and the Chilterns. I have picked shards of flint out of the tyre after a ride; but still not punctured.
Very good grip in gloopy mud, the tread clears very quickly. Can be a bit suqiffy on road surfaces, but these are supposed to be offroad tyres, the tread isn't really designed for tarmac, just a little caution required, although they actually seem to get better as they wear in. On the aesthetics side, they are not as full and rounded as say the Racing Ralph, so if you like your tyres to really fill the space between the fork, they can look a little skinny, at the time of writing they don't make a 2.25.
They are relatively heavy, but roll resistance seems quite good, they are wired, so need a bit of effort to fit to rims.
A brilliant tyre, if you don't like punctures!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff., 13 Jan 2014

Oil works well with multi blade razors, doesn't clog up the blades like foam. I have ordered this oil several times, delivery is quick, it smells quite pleasant and is vastly cheaper than the extortionate price of well known brands.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Punctures....Yet!, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ah... winter in the Chilterns, time for the puncture fairy to return. After a flint cut through my allegededly reinforced 'armadillo' tyres, decided to buy these seriously heavy duty beasts.
Yes they are heavy, roll resistance is OK, grip off road seems good, they give the impression of being a really well made tyre with an integral reinforced layer to protect against thorns, flints etc.
Very pleased with these tyres.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maine Coons Love it.., 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is our Maine Coon's favourite food, they do get a variety of wet and dried foods, but always return for these breed formulated kibble.
They scoop them out of the dishes to eat from the floor, or carry them individually to eat on the lounge carpet!
Maine Coon's... don't you just love 'em!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Frothy man....!, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as I am fed up with over complicated espresso machines that are useless after a year in service, despite careful cleaning. I now use a coffee press and Severin for the milk, simpler easier and less fiddly cleaning.
The Sever in produces about enough frothy milk for two capuccinos, that's just right. for us, any more and its a case of rinsing with cold water and doing a second batch, so if you're looking for larger quantities of frothy milk, probably best to go for the larger model.
Overall, very pleased with the Severin, excellent build quality, clean design, and very effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rides., 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used Nick Cotton's books before, never fail to give detailed descriptions and maps of varied and interesting rides. My only suggestion would be maybe a link to download site to accompany the routes, so that purchaser could install gpx of route into their GPS devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality product, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can confirm agreement with other users, this is a very good quality security light, well made, Second only to Steinel, and fulfilling EC, RoHS and FC lighting standards, (unlike some of the lethal devices sold on auction sites). Very happy with performance and will probably install another near shed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Puncture Fairy returns...., 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't protect against puncture in front tyre two weeks after installing this stuff. Glad I had my little CO2 gun with me on a wet muddy trail in second week of December. Going to stop messing with muck like this and fit a Schwalbe Marathon MTB like I've got on the back...bulletproof!

**Towbar Kit** Witter Detachable Towbar Fits Honda CR-V (Mk2) 2002 To 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Unobtrusively convenient, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having fitted towbars before to previous cars, this Witter unit impressed with its solidity and ease of installation. I did purchase a vehicle specific wiring harness to ease the electrical installation, but this is virtually essential with can bus wiring in modern motors. Highly recommended.
