Weldtite Jet-Flate Air Canister Refills (2pcs)
Weldtite Jet-Flate Air Canister Refills (2pcs)
Offered by Adventure Northumberland
Price: £5.81

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on the road minus all the faff, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a God-send!
Carry some tyre leavers, a couple of spare inner tubes, and two of these with you while riding and you'll end up looking forward to getting a puncture.
You'll also need a Weldtite WEL7008 Co2 Jetvalve Tyre Inflator or similar to operate these cannisters.
They inflate my 700x23 road tyres up to 125psi in 2 seconds.
Excellent piece of kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but tight waist, 24 Sept. 2014
I should have remembered from buying my last Levi jeans - they look and feel great, the standard is high, the cut is comfortable, except - Levi waists are always a bit on the small side compared to other jeans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for the price, 24 Sept. 2014
I use mine with an ipod Classic. Fine for bedroom or office but the higher the volume, the more tinny the sound. No controls for bass/treble etc. Mine is also prone to overheating if used for more than a couple of hours. As stated, fine for the price, but don't expect anything special.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit small ..., 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered an XL pair (34" waist as per sizing chart).
They fit .... just. But I resemble Max Wall in a state of sexual excitement.
My wife (5'4" tall with a 28" waist), on the other hand, looks good in them. Very good.


1repmax style tee t shirt (Large)
1repmax style tee t shirt (Large)
Offered by Gray Fox Europe
Price: £52.52

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure if I've been had ..., 10 Jun. 2014

This review is from: 1repmax style tee t shirt (Misc.)
The T shirt is nice, don't get me wrong. It's fleecy to the touch, washes well, irons even better, and fits like a dream.
But I don't know if I've been had over or not.
You see, the T shirt looks like it's inside out. The seams etc (usually on the inside) are on the outside.
When I wear it there's always some smart arse who'll tell me that I'm wearing it inside out. So I point to the "1RepMax" Logo on the chest and the small Union Jack tab on the side and say things like, "It's meant to be like this, it's the fashion." etc etc and hope they believe me.


F**k It: The Ultimate Spiritual Way

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious advice in a humorous way, 10 Jun. 2014
Go with the flow and when it all gets too much just say, " F**k it!" Nice idea and, for many of the smaller pains in the arse of life, the best course of action.
A humorous yet realistic look at the best ways to deal with everyday annoyances in the proverbial Anglo-Saxon fashion - from finances to relationship problems, road rage, and noisy neighbours, step-children and jobsworths - I actually find myself reaching for the bookshelf from time to time just to remind myself that, sometimes, the best way to react to life's nuances is to flick the V at them and get on with what really matters.


Muddyfox Padded Cycling Tights Mens Black/Green Extra Lge
Muddyfox Padded Cycling Tights Mens Black/Green Extra Lge

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic but good value., 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pair of basic leggings with padded backside for cycling.
High viz flashes on the ankles, thighs and waist are a nice touch. Also has ankle straps.
I'm 5ft 9ins with a 34" waist and ordered a Large pair. Legs come up a bit shorter than usual, so I ended up removing the ankle straps.

Thin and comfortable material that could be worn in warmer weather. Not reccommended for freezing cold days though.


Beurer PM25 Award Winning Heart Rate Monitor Watch
Beurer PM25 Award Winning Heart Rate Monitor Watch
Price: £31.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice ..., 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basic heart rate monitor with a variety of functions such as average heart rate during a training session etc.
Grey in colour and made from robust plastic, the wrist watch part is comfortable to wear with a clear display which shows the time and date.
When activated (by pressing the "start" function) the heart rate is displayed also.
Comes with an elasticated band and plastic monitor which fits around the chest. This is, again, robust and well made.

Excellent value. Does as much as many better known makes of monitor for a fraction of the price.


Garmin Edge 200 GPS Bike Computer
Garmin Edge 200 GPS Bike Computer
Price: £79.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant ..., 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace my older cycling computer which, despite also being wireless, only recorded time, distance and speed.

This little beauty records time, distance, speed, average speed, calories burnt, temperature, and elevations. You basically just attach it to your bike with the provided fittings (really easy), turn it on, and off you go. No setting up etc required other then to enter your personal details (age, weight, etc).
It can also recognise routes and records PB's etc on these.

Works from a rechargeable battery which seems to be good for a few full days riding before needing a charge (via USB cable into computer or mains charger - both provided).

The results can then be downloaded onto Garmin's own site or onto other online training logs such as Strava.

Nice looking, ease of use, amount of info recorded etc makes this well worth the money.

The basic Garmin Edge model, but more than sufficient for most cyclists. More expensive models also include a heart rate monitor, power meter, split speed functions, and cadence counter.
