Sks Mini Tool Ct-Worx Sks
I'm really impressed by this multi tool. It has pretty much every tool you need to fettle or adjust your bike out on the road (even a couple of spanners), in a handy package. Typical German attention to detail in the way everything has been thought out and works well.

Only 4 stars, for three reasons. Partly because it's missing a Torx bit (SKS include one in some of their multi tools, so you can "mix and match"if absolutely necessary). Partly because I haven't actually used the tyre levers in anger, and worry that they might not be up to the task.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty hopeless, 23 Dec 2011

This is a competent little "super-netbook", with a number of positive features, but ultimately let down by several glaring flaws.

The machine ships with a full operating system (Windows 7 Home Premium), and if it's important to you it is possible to reinstall it as the 64-bit version. Although wiping a new PC clean and starting again requires some effort and know-how, you can at least get rid of all the annoying "free" bloatware that HPhas pre-installed for you.

The HDD is not the quietest, but the capacity and speed are both fine for a machine in this class. It works well with the E-350 processor, which makes this netbook much more powerful than the previous… Read more
