Guinness Dublin Porter Beer 500 ml (Case of 8)
Guinness Dublin Porter Beer 500 ml (Case of 8)

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but prefer the West Indies stronger one, 17 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit too week and watery compared to the superb West Indies 6.0% guiness porter ,
Wasn't a fan, really appreciate the sweetness of the West Indies version reminds me of the export guiness I drank in Kuala Lumpur 13 years ago

If you must drink this first and then move on to the stronger one

On-Guard Brute LS-8000 Keyed Shackle Lock - Black, 11.5 x 26.0 cm
Price: £28.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Longer shackle perfect for the garage, 10 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect just what I wanted, I already had a short dlock version but wanted a longer version to easily lock two bikes together , much prefer this brand over kryptonite, the lock feels easier to open and close, my kryptonite key never feels to engage and I worry it'll snap off,
Plus this comes with 5 keys,

5.0 out of 5 stars Wash before wearing, 10 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good socks, I'm a U.K. 9 in shoes, trainers, walking boots etc, I sized down to 6.5-8 the fit perfectly, not small and definately not too big like regular uk9-11 socks

Make sure you wash them before first use, I did a practise 2 peaks of Yorkshire , feet got cut to ribbons.
Since they,ve been washed then had worn great and not a problem


Muc-Off Bike Spray Aerosol - 500 ml
Muc-Off Bike Spray Aerosol - 500 ml
Price: £9.56

5.0 out of 5 stars New biking ritual, 10 Jun. 2016
Get mtb extremely muddy
Hose down and wash with pink mucoff spray, and large asda soft brush (far cheaper than mucoffs)
Gt85 spray all springs, drive trains, chain, levers etc, anything that's rusts,
Give the bike a shake for excess water,
Spray the bike spray around the frame and dry off wipe down with a microfibre cloth (mucoff ones are £8 or home bargains 5 for £2-3
In summer get a beer and lube the chain, in winter get a cup o tea and lube the chain the next day when I can feel my hands

I thought sprays like this were a gimmick until I tried it, makes the bikes look now, and covers scratches, and more importantly Acts as a barrier to the next rides mud and grime, making it easier to wash once again,
Ps. I wash my bike after most rides, but the cars never treated so well

Garmin Vivoactive GPS Smart Watch with Sports Apps - Black
Garmin Vivoactive GPS Smart Watch with Sports Apps - Black
Price: £121.53

4.0 out of 5 stars Good so far, although uploads syncs can be sporadical, 9 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this watch a couple,of weeks now, downloaded the farm in connect App and synced it to my iPhone 6 fairly easily, connection on the whole has been good, although when lost it was difficult to find it.
Once you've found the link to connect to strava it works very well and update to strava seamlessly
I bought this watch to use for swimming and cycling
Cycling it's very easy to use and start for swimming and biking (the start stop button) does interfere with my mtb gloves but in 3 rides has worked perfectly, although the timer has stopped and started multiple times in a ride the end upload has been spot on, the data rolls into strava via the garmin connect app

Swimming enter length of the pool and swim, generally it records perfectly, but I noticed it does occasionally skip a pool length and so reading accuracy may be a poor, for example I have swum 4 lengths (2 each way) but it is showing 100m swam (my pool is 33 1/3) when it should read 133 1/3
Also I swim 30 lengths but for some reason the final uploaded result is 990 metres swum..

My main annoyance is the upload at the end of an activity is random, why isn't their a sync button,
It does eventually sync but appears hit and miss, I usually close of the garmin app (iPhone home screen button double tap and swipe off) and then it syncs perfectly..

Battery life seems inline with expectations. Text messages and alerts work seamlessly, the vibration and backlight is superb, weather and music remote control is good,
Oh and get some screen protectors I have managed to make 2 small scratches already

Overall for the Lightning price I paid I'm very happy, it's basic but does basic very well indeed.
I will upgrade once the HR wrist monitors become perfect and a little cheaper
