5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best trainers I've owned, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great balance of support and cushioning. Beyond aesthetic considerations (and I DO like the colour scheme) these trainers are excellent for long runs...

This review is from: Mona Lisa Overdrive (MP3 CD)
1 hour into the book and I considered that the effort (and it was an effort to follow the story) was not worth the time... unfortunately did not grip me...

This review is from: Rendezvous with Rama (Audio CD)
I have spent the last few days inside a cylindrically-shaped world... Every piece of the jigsaw that the story brings you increases the mystery behind it... I purchased the Audiobook and have listened to it twice already. Recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars USB madness, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a great GPS device... until the USB suddenly refused to connect to any PC... using any driver, any cable, any combination of reset buttons... and wasting my time for a couple of days in which I got the feeling that the USB subsystem was some kind of evil wizard that was determined to make my life miserable...Very frustrating experience which promises to be only worsened by the fact that I have now been routed to a process called "Garmin RMA", not as confidence-inspiring as I had hoped for from this kind of company.
Ah... and once I got online and started to look for answers, it turns out that there are tons of users out there in the same situation... my faith in Garmin tumbling down...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pump, 19 July 2013

This review is from: AIRACE AR TRACK PUMP (Sports)
100% reliable. Very good pump head, will connect without any hint of a problem to all Presta valves. I also like the little button that diminishes the pressure... quite useful indeed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a trustworthy stand for my bike... but also a bit difficult and awkward to put in place. the only advantage is that it does not take a lot of room once is folded, so it can be transported easily... but I wonder what real use you would get from it if you did transport it with your bike...

2.0 out of 5 stars Eyeballs about to burst, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very difficult to fit these goggles in a way that will not make your eyeballs look as if they are about to burst. More than 10 minutes with these and I end up with clear signs of pain.
I did play around with the tension, the different nose bridges, etc... No luck.


The Fall of Hyperion
The Fall of Hyperion
by Dan Simmons
Edition: MP3 CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fall of Hyperion (MP3 CD)
Brilliant storyline. Quite different in its structure to Hyperion, but still gripping and fascinating. Would not recommend reading this one without having read Hyperion (although there are some intents to describe what happened "before")
I have chosen the Audiobooks even though I had previously read the books.
The first one (Hyperion) is absolutely brilliant. Especially, the guy that reads Silenus' part. Do expect Hyperion Cantos at its very best.
The second Audiobook (The Fall of Hyperion) is read by one person only (who does a wonderful job as well). Overall, however, the result is less impressive than Hyperion's reading masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, 17 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good and solid cycling mitts... Comfortable padding on top of a breathable fabric (not the typical leather-style palm)... Unfortunately, not recommendable for triathlon or TT-style bars. Basically, the palm contacts with the horns precisely in the space between the two padded sections... so you end up with the mark of the breathable fabric on your skin... However, very good for road-style bars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 17 Jun. 2013

Great storyline. Keeps you guessing until the very last sentence... Some of the stories seem to start slow... but then you discover that the apparently irrelevant biographic data starts to converge masterfully into the main mysterious facts that bind all characters. I've already ordered the whole saga... Can't get enough of the Hyperion Universe...
