AMMACO PAKKA FOLDER 18 SPEED FULL SIZE 26" WHEEL FOLDING MOUNTAIN BIKE MATT BLACK
AMMACO PAKKA FOLDER 18 SPEED FULL SIZE 26" WHEEL FOLDING MOUNTAIN BIKE MATT BLACK

3.0 out of 5 stars Always a problem., 31 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this bike for the last six or seven months now and at first was rather pleased with it: it fit neatly in my flat, is nice and light, and when it isn't falling apart it actually runs rather smoothly.

But now onto the negative: it always, always has something go wrong with it. Whether it's the brakes autonomously tightening or loosening themselves or the chain beginning to click after every wheel rotation or whatever else; something is always up. I took it to Evans Cycles where they tightened all the bolts, increased pressure in the tyres and basically gave it a general fix-up. Still, now just a month later, the handlebars have gone. Halfway through a ride they suddenly dropped, still attached to the bike but completely loose in the rail. I'll attach photos below - note how the brakes are just hanging limply out of reach.
Easily fixed by re-tightening the nut and bolt, you might think. Well, I thought the same, so I took out the wrench that the company provided and set to do just that. No success. The wrench itself has SEVEN different sizes, and yet NOT ONE fit that bolt, making the repair impossible without going out and buying a new one. So now I'm left with the choice of paying out even more money to get it fixed, or never being able to ride it again, all because this company can't make a bike and wrench correspond with one another.

In theory, it's a great bike - looks good, folds in half for travelling and storage etc, but in practicality, it's just more hassle than it's worth. I'll be contacting the company today to see what they say regarding the handlebars problem, but I'm not holding my breath.

This review is from: Batman Hip Flask (Kitchen & Home)
Ordered it in the evening, it arrived the next day. Did have a small scratch on it but this was only minor and probably done in transit. The product itself is just as described - a great little gift. Happy.

This review is from: The Zone of Interest (Paperback)
No other author I've read can simultaneously manage to capture both humour and horror in the very same paragraph in quite the way Amis does. This is a book which leaves the reader laughing one moment, horrified the next; a great read, and a wonderfully diverse assault on the senses.

Purchased as a gift for my grandfather. Great medal. Exactly as it looks in the pictures. Comes in a little plastic slip, but can easily buy a better container for it elsewhere. Good value for money. Would recommend!

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks fine, but just does not work as a charger., 17 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was initially impressed - it's much longer than the standard issue iphone charger, and thicker too. Unfortunately though it is pretty much useless as far as actually charging my phone goes.
If you leave it on charge overnight, it'll charge (then lose battery within a hour.)
If you try to use it whilst it's charging, it just won't work - you may be plugged into the charger, but your battery still continues to drop.
Very disappointed.
