Heavy duty, huge, solid Jump Starter pack. Weighs a ton. Looks like it can handle the job, and it does. Starts my VW Touareg without breaking a sweat. Nice!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Bike but no assembly instructions, 23 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic little balance bike, perfect size for my 5 year old who just loves it. Solid metal construction, single brake on handlebars. Great tyres for off-road/footpath riding. Top quality.
Only tricky thing was there's no instructions included - otherwise I would have given 5 stars. They expect you to figure out how to put it together but in fact the system for mounting the handlebars is far from obvious. I had to google around until I found a youtube vid - in Russian! - showing someone assembling one. The trick is there's an Allen key bolt set vertically in the center of the handlebar shaft, you have to loosen it first with an Allen key (also not supplied) which allows you to slide the handlebar column onto the bike body, then you have to re-tighten it with the Allen key which then grips the handle bars in place. Phew!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good scooter but huge and very heavy for small kids, 9 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorry to be the voice of dissent here but I didn't like this scooter. Bought for my boy's 5th birthday, it turns out to be absolutely huge and very heavy indeed. It would be more suited as an adult scooter, imho, although the adjustable handlebars annoyingly don't go quite high enough for an adult to ride comfortably.
Also worth considering that the footboard is quite high off the ground compared to a Micro scooter or similar. So it's quite a stretch for small legs to reach the ground. I'm 6ft2 and I felt it was a tiring ride due to the height. So for a small child, 4 or 5, it would be worse I imagine.
Also, tho' its a small niggle, it didn't come with an allen key included, needed to attach the handlebars. This led to a very upset little boy who was not able to ride his new scooter until a suitable key could be found. It's a small thing, but for such a high price would be cheap to include and convenient. For instance Micro scooters come with 2 allen keys included.
It is however well built and does ride smoothly. But I would put the age-range at 8 or even 10+ years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice compilation of old school tunes, 30 Jan. 2016

The music is great. I had an issue with the download codes not working in Firefox. The codes are also quite hard to find - its a tiny sticker stuck to the inner sleeve. Soul Jazz were very helpful and in the end all good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Download codes have expired., 30 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The music is great. But be aware that according to my included download card the mp3 download offer expires on Jan 28th 2016! Yes. Very weird. I was not able to download the mp3 version of the vinyl album, as the "offer had expired". So, since it's now past that date, most likely neither will you. What a rip-off. For that they lose 3 stars. But the music is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not always a comfortable listen, but well worth it., 28 Jan. 2016

This review is from: A Comfortable Man [VINYL] (Vinyl)
A touching and intimate record, sometimes painfully so. Cathal shows us his vulnerable and emotional side, away from the pop bluster of Madness. Good on the man. I wish him well. There is some lovely music here. If you buy it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Plus it has one of the best front covers in recent memory!

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronic soundtrack genius., 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is something about Cliff Martinez's soundtrack music. Normally I can't listen to OSTs out of context, but his stand up as music in their own right. It's deep, rich, ambient electronica. Apparently he does it all on a laptop. Man's some kind of genius.
