Lezyne Alloy Lever
Lezyne Alloy Lever
Offered by Leisure Lakes Bikes
Price: £14.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lezyne Alloy Tyre Lever (Sports)
If you need tyre levers to take on a ride, do yourself a favour and get some of these. Yes they are expensive but they wont break they will get your tyre off and they are small and come with a little carry wrapper to keep them together. Best tyre levers I have ever used and probably the last set I will ever buy.

Wera are my current tool brand of choice and this set does nothing to change that. The set is a bit shorter than I thought it would be, (Wera`s Hex key set is pretty big) but the quality is great. Reccomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice little set, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Small light socket set, which seems well made. The sockets are 6 point rather that 12 which I prefer for almost every job. The ratchet is small and the set contains no T-bar which would have been nice but it does contain some common hex and torx bits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent set, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good set of Hex keys. I around £10 for my set. I don`t think they are as good as the Wera set which I also own but I paid twice as much for those. At the offer price they are well worth it but at RRP of around £38 the Wera set is a bit cheaper and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Reading, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are reading this I assume you know who George Daniels is.
An excellent and well written account of the life of a true craftsman and perfectionist. Not a technical work (get `Watchmaking` if thats what you want) but a book that covers his life from his impoverished childhood through to his struggle to get the Co-Axiel escapement accepted by the Swiss watch industry. It covers many other parts of this fascinating mans life such as his interest in classic Bentley motor cars and fondness for bicycles. The later chapters also cover some of the work with Roger Smith.
Anyone with an interest in horology should find this a most interesting read.

Lezyne Road Drive Medium silver mini bike pump
Lezyne Road Drive Medium silver mini bike pump
Offered by Sportsandmoreshop
Price: £42.81

4.0 out of 5 stars Good purchase, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this pump instead of using CO2 canisters. Like every Leyzne product I have bought so far the quality is excellent. It does take a lot of work to get up to 100psi though but its a small pump, what do you expect.
Get this pump as something to take on a ride as it fits easily into a jesey pocket without sticking out too much. It also comes with a frame mounting which I havent used but seems like it would work well. If you are going to mount on a frame I would get a bigger pump (which Leyzne also do)
I would not recommend this pump as something to keep at home, its too small for that. Get a decent floor pump for that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good tyre but hard to fit., 23 Aug 2011
I have been running a set of these tyres on my no1 bike and bought another set for the commuter. So far I have had zero punctures in several hundred miles despite all that city streets can throw at them. I highly recommend them.
They roll well and are plenty grippy in the wet, not skittish at all like some tyres.
Of course they are not as fast as a pure race tyre but that is not what they are about at all.
They do have one downside which people should be aware of. They were a pig to fit and needed quite a bit of force to get onto the rim, which could easily damage the innertube unless a lot of care is taken.
