Beware, only takes 12g cartridges. Anything bigger will not fit.
As a regular air pump it's a last resort only as delivers little air and the universal attachment isn't that easy to fit. Without a hose you need to be careful you don't break whatever it's attached to.
For CO2 it works okay. For those with leaks, make sure you follow the instructions and close the valve before inserting the cartridge. Remember that the attachment opposite the valve is where the CO2 comes out of, not the top universal adapter. Likewise when just using the air pump, close the valve to make sure air isn't coming out the CO2 hole.
It all works, but it's got limits and more expensive than better alternatives.
No, I do not recommend this product.
I like:co2 inflation works okay
I don't like as much:air pump, 12g only

Great for doing what it says on the tin. It's a water displacer & cleaner, with PTFE. It cleans and lubes basically.
Use it often to clean and lube mechs.
Beware though. This is essentially a degreaser also, like WD40. Don't go spraying it directly onto areas with bearings else you could flush out the grease. But if you've got greasy or rusty parts you want to clean up, soak in this stuff and they come up sparkling.
For chains, I'd still advise using chain oil after if you clean it with this. A better and friendlier cleaner for chains though is simply soapy water. A chain cleaner device is great for that.
I recommend this product!
I like:cleans and lubes, cheap
I don't like as much:just be careful as it's a degreaser too

can GT85 be used as a chain lube....or is it better to use a seperate chain lube??

GT85 is a degreaser which will clean the chain but also removes existing oil. The PTFE coating it leaves is not the best chain lube. Better off with chain lube or general purpose bike lube.

Could you confirm that the Recon 327 fork comes with lockout - this isn't standard

This bike doesn't come with a lockout on the front forks. Not any more at least. The one I got from Halfords is definitely the 327 fork and there's no lock out. It's a solo air, not u-turn as specified either, with no lock out.
