Bike Specialized Tricross. Bought to replace the Clarks brake blocks (MTB/V TYPE/HYBRID CP513) that were already on my cantilever brakes. Just about OK in dry conditions but not very good in wet. Quite deep so only just managed to fit.

Not bad for the price.
I use mine for a media centre PC hooked up to my plasma screen.
Works ok but has a habit of selecting things when i hover over an item that is looking for a left click.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not available with Windows 7 for a reason, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the Revo RL80 to connect to my plasma screen in my living room and use as a media player to view downloaded films.

I chose the cheaper version without an operating system to use a copy of windows 7 I already owned. I tried several times to install windows 7, but although I appeared to have installed it correctly when the PC rebooted the Free Dos kept appearing. I installed Windows 7 using both a USB stick and a USB DVD drive and on each and every install, the Free Dos appeared.

After looking on various forums I found other people with similar problems. The only solution that seemed to work was to delete the Free Dos with a hard drive reformat. Although this meant that the drivers installed on the hard drive would also be deleted, it was not a problem as all drivers were available on the Acer site.

After reformatting the hard drive Windows 7 did install successfully, unfortunately though after downloading all the drivers to the PC, there appeared to still be a problem with the wireless card which would not connect to my router.

I contacted Acer via their site and was eventually told 4 days later that the problem was due to the PC not supporting Windows 7. After reformatting the drive yet again I installed Windows 8.1 and the PC now works flawlessly.

So to recap, this PC will run Windows 7 but the wireless card will not work and if you check Windows Device Manager you will see various exclamation marks indicating problems with the Network Adapters no matter what drivers you install, although having said that you can use the internet but you have to use an Ethernet cable. Installing Windows 8.1 will enable you to use the wireless card and no problems are indicated via Device Manager.

If you can live with Windows 8 then that’s fine, personally I found Windows 8 impossible to live with. It appears to have been designed by a teenager who has no experience of using a desktop or laptop only a tablet with a touch screen. Also people with plasma screens that a not full HD i.e. 720p, will find that the Windows 8 apps will not open as the screen resolution is not sufficient. I uninstalled all the apps then downloaded and installed Classic Shell which makes Windows 8.1 look and feel like Windows 7.

The PC is good value for the money, it is practically silent and it enables you to surf the net fully on your main TV. If you download XBMC which I did, this then opens up your TV to a massive number of catch up TV channels, foreign channels and free film channels I never even knew existed. Also after hooking up an external hard drive with hundreds of films on, I let XBMC use a movie scraper which collects information on every movie I have and displays not just the movie title, but all the artwork that is found on the DVD cover so the films can be viewed as thumbs with all the film details.

Constant volume warnings even when listening to news, bad battery life and a flashing screen when the power button is touched, which is quite often when player is in pocket. Complete crap, do not buy! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
