5.0 out of 5 stars Epic!, 20 Mar. 2016
For anyone whose formative years were the '80s this is a must - and also for anyone that appreciates great music from superb artists!


Rolson Tools 61760 Nine LED Torch Set
Rolson Tools 61760 Nine LED Torch Set
Price: £6.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant torch, but older versions will struggle with replacement AAAs - newer torches unaffected: [UPDATED], 7 Nov. 2015
Clearly the vast majority of the 500-odd glowing reviews of this torch were written within a few days of receiving it...as opposed to the handful of people who subsequently discovered THAT YOU CAN'T FIND REPLACEMENT BATTERIES THAT FIT !!!
I've tried Duracell, Energizer, Kodak (yes really!) and more Ni-MH batteries than you can shake a stick at....all of them have too large a diameter to fit into the torch once installed into the 3-battery carriage.
I've emailed Rolson with this request....I'll update this review if I get an answer - UNTIL THEN, MAYBE CONSIDER AN ALTERNATIVE IF YOU WANT A MEDIUM-to-LONG TERM TORCH!!

OK, UPDATE as promised: ROLSON have replaced both torches. Although these were fitted with the same 'Songtao' batteries, I am please to report that the torch body is now a slightly bigger diameter meaning that 'normal' AAA replacement batteries can fit. Great customer service from ROLSON, and good response to feedback from their design & production.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but be aware that these don't have a threaded valve stem, 7 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these as they were the same make as those fitted to my GIANT bike...although upon arrival they weren't EXACTLY the same - the valve stem on these tubes are smooth, not threaded, meaning that there was no way to secure the valve into the wheel until the tube/tyre is partially inflated.
"SO WHAT" I hear your cry?...it's no problem at all for people that use pumps with a threaded connector. However, I suspect that the vast majority of us use a simple push on fit pump, which is a pig to use with nothing to press against except a partially inflated inner - something that I'm never a great fan of due to the chance of knackering the valve seal.
The 'Skyscape caps' are a bit of a gimmick (certainly wouldn't pay £2.99 for them!!), but they do look nicer than black plastic, although I can't see how they are three-times better at air retention!!
Your choice ultimately....otherwise I've had good experience with Kenda tubes, hence the 4-Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tyres for the price, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far lower rolling resistance makes for faster, more efficient ride to work. Puncture-proof??...who knows?? How can you tell the punctures that you would have had with your old tyres?!! I just wish that they wouldn't twist these tyres into a smaller 'circle' for postage...it took a bumpy couple of days for the sidewall deformation to work itself out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tyres for the price, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These appear good tyres for the price....the option of lurid colours may also attract certain types of cyclists to match their lycra outfit (know what I mean!!) As for puncture-proof...who knows?? How can you tell the punctures that you would have had with your old tyres?!!

Braun Oral-B TriZone 3000 Three-Mode Rechargeable Toothbrush (Packaging Varies)

Price: £48.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Great toothbrush...if you get it cheap and can't find the 2000-series cheaper!!, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far better than the cheaper 'Vitality' Oral-B toothbrushes...a far-faster, more powerful motor for a start!! - BUT, only worth it if you can get it at 50% (ie ~£30)...this is not a £70+ toothbrush!!

Also, and others have said it, but the added-function of the '3000' series (the multi-speed 'polish' setting) is an utter waste of time...you only use the fastest speed to clean your teeth and then the slower speed when rinsing the brush (to avoid drowning from the spray!!).

Great tunes....Unbelievable Value!!! (20 classic dance tracks for £0.99!!)
I though that it was a mistake that Amazon was selling this ~80min dance mix for £0.99 when the album is ~£10.00 - clearly not!!
Although I agree that it's only one-third of the album, the other two ~80min mixes are also £0.99.....that's £2.97 for a £9.49 album!!
There's some great classic tunes in this mix, and even if you only like half of them, that's 10 dance tracks for 99 pence - it's a no-brainer.

Bicycle Bike Mountain Road Front Rear Fender Mudguard Guard Black Gray

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for £3.50 with free P&P - what more do you want??!!, 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You would expect something truly awful for £3.50 with free P&P - however, what you get is a good, and cheap, pair of mudguards that are ideal for kids....let's face it, they're are going to get muddy irrespective of how much you pay and it is better to have cheap mudguards to break when the bike falls over.
For ~£3.50 these are definitely 4-Stars, I'll order another set for the other muddy kid!!!
