5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant bit of kit widely praised on the web, 6 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ETI has the reputation for making some of the best digital thermometers in the world........and this one is highly recommended. Bought it for use in my BBQ smoker, and works brilliantly. My only improvement would be to include a clip for a BBQ rack instead of the clip included which is for holding against the side of a saucepan........but a minor niggle. Liked it so much, have ordered two more, so I can have one for air temp inside the smoker, and two others for keeping inserted inside the meat inside the smoker.

1.0 out of 5 stars Elastic tore in first second of putting them on. Very poor quality., 31 Oct 2014

On first putting them on, hole developed in elastic just below ankle. Terrible quality and a complete waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lousy quality……strap had a tear in it on opening., 28 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just opened this after ordering ages ago. It has a razor sharp tear running about 50% of the way through both layers of the head strap. Naturally I've just gone past the return window, so looks like a wasted purchase. Lousy considering GoPro charge a fortune for these accessories. Have ordered Maximal Power accessories before and they are a fraction of the price and work just as well….should have stuck to that with this item too.

Every bit as good as the GoPro model for a fraction of the price. Has a standard tripod screw for mounting any camera, plus adapter specially for GoPro.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great trousers, but not Unisex….and the sizes listed are all wrong. They are Men's and you get men's sizes!, 16 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are advertised as Unisex, with all the sizes listed as women's sizes. Before ordering I cross-checked the Pinewood website and ordered the Size 40, which is a UK women's 12, or medium.

What came was a men's pair, labelled size C50, which is Pinewood's men's size, in the 34 inch waist.

So the sizing mentioned in the listing is total nonsense. Fortunately my husband is 34 inch waist, and I only paid £27 including delivery, so we are keeping them.

But beware, these are not women's trousers and you will not get the size ordered!


Jagwire Bike Bicycle Complete Front & Rear Inner Outer Wire Gear Brake Cable Set
Jagwire Bike Bicycle Complete Front & Rear Inner Outer Wire Gear Brake Cable Set

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value but make sure you know what you are getting and it meets your needs, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well priced package and will allow you to overhaul your cables…..to a point. The set I received had one damaged 5mm break cable outer cap and one damaged cable inner end cap….both crushed. I didn't buy the set for these, and have plenty of other spares, so no issue for me, but it's why I give 4 stars instead of 5.

The cable outers are excellent, and you can overhaul a complete bike…..5mm brake outer and 4mm gear outer…..both plenty long enough with spare left over.

The brake outer caps are metal (one damaged in y set) and the gear outer caps are plastic….both do the job. You also get 4 aluminium cable ends (one damaged in my set).

You get two cables, one is fine to reach rear of bike, the other is short to only reach the front. You have to decide whether to turn each into a brake or gear cable, as each comes with a gear stop at one end and a brake stop at the other end. You simply snip off whichever you don't want to use.

So, just to be aware, you can't recondition a whole bike, you can only replace one front cable and one rear cable. Not an issue for me as I had spare gear and brake cables, but may be for some who are looking at this thinking they can do a whole bike.

Excellent way to add a splash of colour to a bike with a new set of cables, and have just ordered another set for wife's MTB.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Moon light I have, but it's OK, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This light does what it says on the tin….fairly good wide arc of bright light, with brightness and flash settings. The only thing I don't like is its limitations when it comes to mounting it. It can't be swivelled or rotated around its mount to its rubber strap, so you can only move it up/down around the handle bar. That's fine, if you have a section of free handlebar precisely perpendicular to direction of travel, but if you need to mount it to a slightly offset section of handlebar, then it points away from true forward, which is annoying. Moon lights themselves are excellent, and I only buy this brand….but unfortunately a common theme is poor thought about mounting.


Moon Meteor Front Light - Titanium
Moon Meteor Front Light - Titanium
Offered by WoollyHatShop
Price: £39.26

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb small but powerful spot light with excellent mounts, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moon Meteor Front Light (Sports)
This was smaller that I imagined (good thing) and packs a powerful light, adjustable to three different brightnesses to conserve power. Also has three flash/strobe modes. Really like the two mounts it comes with……one rubber wrap around for handlebars, and a velcro fastened flat plate mount for attaching to a bike helmet. It fastens to my bike helmet perfectly very securely. Light can be pivoted/rotated easily. Excellent light.
