3.0 out of 5 stars Great but short, 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lock is great for bouncing around london town and it's easily as hardly as my Evolution 4. However due to it's minimal size it can be a real squeeze getting my bike to lock through the triangle of the bike to thicker cycle stands.

I have a skinny road bike so this might be a struggle for anyone with a chunky mountain bike

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pairing knife in this price category, 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own both the Sabatier and Victorinox pairing knifes and i'm happy to report that there is an easy comparison to make.

Whilst the Victorinox blade is marginally cheaper and has a slew of excellent reviews it is only comparable on edge, both knifes have and excellent edge and the Victorinox is lighter. However the overall quality of the knife is far below the Sabatier.

Sabatier blades are finished with two piece wooden handles secured by metal pins. Victorinox blades have a simliar light piece of formed plastic.

The weight and quality of finish on this knife beats everything else out there for less than £20.

Buy this knife, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely astounding, 16 Nov. 2012

Easily the best head phones in its price bracket. Why these aren't some of the most bought headphones on amazon I have no Idea.

Buy them and throw your CX300's in the bin...

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for London Cycling, 2 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a lot of nasty in the air on London roads and with a (hopefully) dry summer coming up these are just the right purchase to get me through 2012. At the price they are I'm expecting them to break before winter hits but with the hustle and bustle of a london commute a more robust pair of glasses would just get scratched anyway. The fit and look are fine and they came two days after purchasing. I'll be looking for the same this time next year!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 13 Feb. 2012
Perfect for our bath and very easy to clean, however it is starting to show rust on the inside mesh after 2 weeks, we'll see how long it lasts...

Update: this strainer lasted about 3-4months. I suppose for the price i'd have no problem with buying 4 and swapping throughout the year. But this is quite annoying and for a little more I can buy and forget.

Perfect for those wanting to save pennies to make pounds

1.0 out of 5 stars Read the original four steps, 13 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is only 50 or so pages long which is definitely not in this books favour, some could call it the most overpriced blog article you'll find in amazon, however it does provide some additional value to those not first sold on Steve Blank's book.

I would argue that taking careful notes from blank's book will serve you better AND most importantly this book only covers the first section of Blank's book 'Customer Discovery'. I would recommend to avoid this specific book but if you do buy it certainly don't read this until you have read Blank's masterpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best headphones in the pricerange, 14 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a great set of headphones, I cycle to work each day and have a tendency to chew through headphones either in the spokes or through wear and tear of cycle gear so i've bough used and abused CX300 II's, CX400's, Sony MDREX38IPB.CE7's and of course my current flavour the X1's you see above.

I've got to be honest the X1's are definitely the best, followed closely by the Sony's (if you need the iphone/ipod remove controls then they're the winner), falling a bit below we have the Sennheiser's. Don't get me wrong they have good build quality and the sound is full but the 300's just have too much bass compared to the other ranges where the X1's have gorgeous bass, you just need to turn them up a bit... because they are properly tuned, and the 400's... just trail behind, the cable causes SUCH FEEDBACK that all you can hear is it rubbing against your clothes as you walk.

Buy the X1's, you won't be disappointed!
