Replacement Front and Rear Mudguards for Mountain Bike (To Fit 24" and 26" wheels)
Replacement Front and Rear Mudguards for Mountain Bike (To Fit 24" and 26" wheels)
Offered by FastcarDirect - 24 Hour Dispatch
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Just past cheap..., 20 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's cheap and there's nasty and these are just past the "cheap" part.
Yes they do a job but the plastic is quite soft. It waves around in a stiff breeze.
The mouldings all had quite bad "flashing" on the edges that looked awful but trimmed off with a knife OK - should have been done at the factory.
For the price just OK but if you want something aesthetically pleasing and built to last look elsewhere.

Mixed reviews here but having fitted it can't see how you could ask more for the money.
Adjustable height, supports bike fine, tucks well under the frame when not in use.
A good buy

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All round pretty good for the price. It's not 100% quality-wise (the spring clamp popped out on one side when first tried).
However when fixed,fitted and "tweaked" it's fine. Light, fairly rigid and useful. 3 different fittings give a range of options of where to fit the front mount. Rated at 9 kgs that might be optimistic but it should hold most bike luggage easily enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only £5 but you can save yourself £5....., 23 April 2015
This review is from: Oscillating Sprinkler
...by not buying this rubbish.
Needed a quick replacement so thought for the price why not?
Why not is because there are 2 fundamental problems :-
1) It doesn't cover anything like the area claimed (2800 sq ft) - maybe 150 sq ft? - maybe if it was hooked up to the Hoover Dam...
I previously had (and broke) a Hozelok one that covered way more than this so pressure is not an issue.
2) It doesn't oscillate. This one goes around so far and just stops - a twist to the next stage gets it going again but at the same point on the next rev it stops again. indicates to me that a gear is stripped or just not well made and this being straight out of the box is just not good enough.
So I've spent an extra £10 and got a brand.

4.0 out of 5 stars They actually work!, 21 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having owned - and thrown - 2 pairs of these type of things previously the thought of poking a fork int the lawn for hours made me try these.
2 differences I noted. One was the tapered spikes as opposed to 3" nails previously and the straps LOOKED like they might actually hold them on rather than the stupid velcro or luggage-strap types.
The tapered spikes make a big difference - the main one being you can (and should) walk normally in these and it "peels" out of the turf more easily than the "Kryten" walk you have to do with the nails, permanently lifting each leg out. So no more sinking slowly and then being stuck.
And the straps do work. Might help I have big feet but a bit of care to get it on the last hole possible so keep the straps tight and with 20 mins "walking" not 1 strap loose.
Not perfect by any means - you still feel a bit of a fool walking slowly around the garden and occasionally adopt the "quicksand" movement - but miles better than previous versions tried.


Logitech OEM PC 860 Stereo Headset

5.0 out of 5 stars Greta buy for the price, 21 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to replace some "proper" Sennheisers that had been brutally assaulted by a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Only used occasionally for Skype so went for the cheapest trusted brand (and Sennheiser is) I could find.
For Skype / VOIP cannot fault these. Sound is crystal clear and the microphone (tried on the Skype test call) is actually clearer than my previous, more expensive one.
Also has a volume wheel and a mute switch in the cable that are handy.
Note: has 2 x 3.5mm plugs (one earphones, one mic) that I actually prefer so I can take the earphones out and listen on speakers if required.
Overall for the price cannot give anything other than 5*

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful as well that wiring is a straight colour-swap, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Early days but fitting is a doddle and seems to have cured the problem with radiators warming up even when only hot water was on (lever didn't return on spring pressure). Useful as well that wiring is a straight colour-swap.
Reliability : time will tell but the original Honeywell ones are very expensive and the last one I had lasted less than 3 years, so...

Good size for a small wrist (unlike the wrist-clocks that seem to be "in" at the moment) but large clear numbers so easy to read.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the price of genuine (or are they?) Sony batteries - worth more than the 5-year-old laptop I thought I'd give this a try. Seems absolutely fine. Did the "exercises" when first used (full charge - full drain, etc). Not quite the claimed charge life but seems as good as the original Sony one when that was decent. Very happy.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't say I "love" edging shears hence 4 stars but after getting bored of continually sharpening my xx-year old ones ordered these on Saturday evening and received Monday morning!
Wish I'd have done so a while back - very good and much quicker with decent tools.
Also free delivery from Amazon means it's hardly worthwhile going to the shop.
