Lovely design, compliments setting and awesome heat output! Two handed fitting though, very heavy even empty.

This review is from: GRAVITY STAND
Surprisingly solid and adjustable to all frame angles but the wall bumper at the top can leave a mark on light walls, would be better if silicone rubber.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended by my local Barrista...and he was right!, 23 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great system but needs some practice to perfect. Some information out there on variations to brewing times and temperatures to get the best from it, even a world brewing chamionship! Superior flavour and extraction to most high street brewing systems. Nothing to break or go wrong and you're not tied in to pods. Get a small quality grinder and some good beans from your local independent coffee shop and you'll never buy a *bucks or C*sta coffee again!

2.0 out of 5 stars Rear light is great, front is weak., 16 Nov 2011
Rear light is a good size with a flashing mode. Front light is really only any good as a back-up if your main light goes down. Strap fastening is fiddly to fix with gloves on and has come loose a couple of times

For a good front commuting light see the Philips LED bike light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best commuting light you can get., 16 Nov 2011
This review is from: Philips LED bike light (Sports)
Beam is strong, focused and evenly spread. I commute on both dedicated lit and unlit cycle paths and roads and this light is perfect for both. Light is reflected like a car headlight and does not dazzle other road users. Has two settings (50% & 100%), an led guage to tell you whats left in the battery and a "get-you-home" mode if the battery is running down. Will run for 2hrs on full(+ 30mins get-you-home @ 50%) or 8hrs on 50%. Easliy lights the full width of a cycle path for 30m ahead, depending on how high you tilt the light, the 50% mode is ample for lit roads and paths. Edge of the lamp glows brightly for excellent sideways visibility (I've put some black electrical tape on the top edge as I found this a bit of distraction). Comes with 4x 2450mAh rechargable AA batteries (replaceable)and a usb type mains charger which plugs straight in the back (mine was shipped without a UK adapter which the seller forwarded for free when I raised this). Will also charge from a usb port, though slowly. Mounting bracket is firm and the light fastens without tools securely but is not fiddly to remove or put on to 21mm-32mm bars and can be adjusted laterally. I'm very pleased with this light and having compared it to the Niterider 600, I'm glad I went for this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well priced and good rack bag, 16 Nov 2011
Folding side bags are capacious enough to store a long d shackle lock (series 4 Kryptonite) or a shirt and spare w/proof tousers. Also are coated and should be shower proof only - the reflective strip has been stiched through the coating (Doh!) and not taped. Velcro fixing straps could be a little longer but are adequate. I also use a bungee on my seatpost mounted rack. Also comes with a yellow rain cover stored underneath. All in all a good product for the price. Been using it for about a week and not had any problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shiney!, 1 Nov 2011
These things are great if you really want to get noticed by drivers on the commute on winter evenings. One pack of 36 will do every spoke on one wheel or alternate spokes on two wheels, effective either way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good lock but big, heavy and rattley, 1 Nov 2011
Very plesed with the lock as a lock but it's very heavy, big on the frame (gets in the way of the bottle holder on my road bike)and it tends to rattle like anything and really can spoil your ride. Only really worth it if you have a £1,000 + bike to lock up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price, 12 July 2011
Superb iron, wished I'd bought one ages ago. Handles great,not too heavy, glides smoothly and the ionic steam seems to work as it even smooths dry shirts left over from when my old one gave up the ghost. Reccommended.

Works well, arrives in a nice shiney tin with a belt pouch and a lanyard. Software is simple and effective. Robust construction as well.
