  1. That Torque Wrench seems very reasonably priced!

  2. If that Torque wrench really is £14.99, I’m having one tomorrow…

  3. To peak could be onto a winner at that price. Where can I get one?

  4. £15 for a torque wrench, £35 for a few cm of sticky back plastic. Blimey.

  5. Sadly, I saw a bloke walking along with a neatly snipped Knog lock at Newcastle station. He was looking for his missing bike and (I guess) wishing that he’d bought a less pretty but more theft resistant lock i.e. one that you can’t cut with kitchen scissors.

  6. The dual glasses sound a bit dodgy, bifocals are well know for causing people to fall, there may well be plenty of comedy crashes with those glasses on a bike.

  7. Bi-focals for Mamils! 🙂

  8. Yup – aggree with I did dab. My wife had a bike nicked that was locked with a flexible Knog lock (where was the abus granit D-lock that i bought her?). The Knog lock was around 1cm thic . The actual steel cable burried inside the rubber was about 2mm thick. Rubbish. I dont think the comment about kitchen scissors is far off the mark. Been wanting to get this off my chest for a while.

  9. “the technology used for this set of tyres has been taken from Formula 1” – so they only last 20mins then? What a load of marketing guff!

  10. that Bike Shield pack is excellent stuff. Had some on my Turner for a couple of years and it still hasn’t peeled off

  11. The Fizik saddles are hurting my eyes..!

    I like the idea of the magnifier section on those glasses. Be like a bird of prey, they have that built into their eyes! So you’ll be able to spot shiny stuff from twice as far away?!

  12. Those HRM and cadence sensors only work with iPhones. How stupid.

  13. The knog will be fine as long as you never use it as a lock.

  14. The packaging say the HRM and Cadence sensors work with “any Bluetooth Smart ready device”.

  15. Sorry, just read the Topeak manual, iPhone 4S/5 only.

  16. I hate it when manufactures assume we’re all sheep and there for have an iphone. Was really interested in the speed and cadence monitor until I read faz083 comment. My phone is more powerful and doesn’t resemble a brick with an rubber band around it! But I wont be able to use it with this device. Shame.
