1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy, 15 Feb 2010
These locks are of appalling quality.

I bought two of these locks in August 2009, one for me and one for my wife.

Our bikes are kept in a shed, so the locks are rarely exposed to the elements. I use my lock twice a week, and it is left outside for a maximum of 16 hours per week. The inside of the locking mechanism is already going rusty.

My wife's lock is almost never used outside, as she locks up her bike indoors at work. In January, the locking mechanism on her lock broke completely in the course of normal use. The lock now refuses to click shut properly, and can be opened by inserting any key or screwdriver.

Don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful introduction, with unhelpful conclusions., 14 July 2005
Honeysett provides a useful introduction to postmodernism for the evangelical Christian. He clearly explains the theories of some of the major 20th century post-modern thinkers, and analyses the implications of these theories to the beliefs of a funtamental Christian.
Rather than embracing the advances of postmodernism, Meltdown rejects them outright. In writing the book, Honeysett has failed to consider the history of Christian thought, nor looked at the culture-specific and time-specific nature of the Christian faith. Honeysett sees postmodernism as an attack on the very foundations of his belief, rather that recognising that his beliefs are as much a result of modernism as Christianity.
This book gives an insight into fundamentalist Christian thought. However, for those interested in the real ramifications of Postmodernism on evangelical Christianity, I would recommend the books of Brian McLaren.
