4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a little heavy to take with you, 28 Aug 2009
I bought this as I wanted a more comprehensive tool to take with me when road riding, something that will get one our of most common troubles. The device itsself is fairly comprehensive, and I must admit it's been very useful at home when one cannot be bothered to get the whole toolkit out. It comes in a neat case and had almost everything you need.

A few minor drawbacks:

- It's a bit heavy. Weighs in at about 500grams which for road biking is too heavy really.
- It has metal tyre levers which are quite thin and will probably damage a light road rim
- No chain breaker - mentioned before by others. I personally have never needed one but I know people who have

Basically there is nothing wrong with this product and for family riding its probably ideal - but I wanted something a little lighter. For 10 though, not really compaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good set of cycling glasses for all conditions, 20 Aug 2009
Bought these as I am doing a lot more cycling in the evenings this summer and I wanted some with clear lenses to keep insects out of my eyes! For the price you get quite a lot. The kit comes in a semi-hard case which holds the frames, all 4 lets of lenses in a sort of lens organiser pouch and an additional soft slip case.

The lenses that come with it are all UV blocking and comprise:

- Clear (not really mirror finish as stated but slightly reflective to reduce glare)
- Blue tint
- Yellow tint
- Orange tint

The frames are made of flexible plastic which is very light and feels strong. I think these would survive being dropped a few times.

Overall very pleased.
