Pure rubish
Posted17 August 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
This grease is rubish!
It has the texture and smell of hand cleaner. Is soon as I opened it, I had my doubts about it being any good. As a test I applied it to the 15mm q lock bolt through on my suntour fork. A month later, I went to remove the front wheel only to find the bolt through part sized in the wheel hub.
Do not use this grease, infact any of the pure range, it corrodes things and dose not even lubricant.
I like:the smell
I don't like as much:anything else about this

Pure-Gold
Posted24 October 2014
I recommend this product!
Have been using this lube in the non-extreme version for years, and when I saw this at Halfords very competitive price thought I would buy and try the extreme!
Its just as good as the non extreme version, you apply and let the lube 'dry off' over night. This then leaves a very robust friction reducing light coating that dose not attract dirt/muck, and is fairly waterproof, though its not that good in constant heavy rain. In my mind, its one of the best chain lubes out there, and I cycle 2000 miles plus each year!
I like:price, dose not attract dirt/muck, water resistant, one of the best lubes
I don't like as much:not the best in constant heavy rain

Truvativ GXP
Posted24 October 2014
I recommend this product!
If you have a Truvativ GXP crank set, you are pretty much stuck with using this BB. The quality of the product is good, but due to the way they fit the drive side bearing is not that well protected. In a year, I have got through two of these due to the first having the top hat seal come out exposing the bearing, and the second was just starting to fail when I gave my bike a service!
But all this is down to the design of the BB. There is a ceramic bearing option thats better, just dont look at the price!!
As for halfords side of things, this price is one of the cheapest in the country and click and collect is fab, 95% of the time!!
I like:price
I don't like as much:dose not last as long as shimano

Flying Bizango
Posted18 March 2013
I recommend this product!
Have just covered 20+miles on my Bizango, and having 26 inch wheel MTB's I can tell you you will be amazed with the capability of one of these bike.
First, the bigger wheels smooth bumps out nicely and there is so much more grip. My mate who I was following was spinning up on gravel slopes, but I was not. Even mud I was getting better grip, only having problems in deep mud.
Second, the speed. I was amazed at how easy it was to get speed out of the bike and maintain it with very little effort. I was able to cruse at a full 5mph faster.
There are down sides, one being the 'longer' wheel will track ruts easier and make it harder for you to get out, and the other is it dose feel a bit barge like in handling on tight twisty stuff, but if you ask me that is all made insignificant when compared to all the other advantages. Well done Halfords & Voodoo, a top bike for the money with a very good spec list. I love it and cant wait to get back out on it.
I like:spped, grip, spec, finish, ride
I don't like as much:slow handleing in tight corners

DMR V8
Posted16 September 2012
I recommend this product!
Have several pairs of these pedals on my bikes, and they are a very good grippy pedal. The only down sides to them are the paint wears off quick (mud is abrasive so any kind of coating will not last long), and the greese you get with the pedals is too small an amount to grease the bearings. If you buy, then get a grease gun and grease at the same time and first pump grease in untill it comes out of the seals at the sides. Then give them a shot of grease every couple of months. Doing this will make them last for ever. I have a set that have done well over 2500 miles and are still going strong!!
I like:good bearings, good grip, wide platform
I don't like as much:paint wears off quick, get a greese gun!!

2.4 Mountain King
Posted13 July 2012
I recommend this product!
Have tried these tyres in 2.2 and 2.4. The 2.4 offers more grip than the 2.2 due to its size, but also the tread is (though the same design) different in that its wider spaced so is better cleaning when in mud. I have tried the Rubber Queen 2.2 as well, and that tyre offers better grip, though not as fast and is heavier than this 2.4 Mountain King. As for comments about it not being the same tyre as in the picture, this is right as the 'carbon effect' side wall is the protection model that costs approx twice the price and is hand made! This though is not just Halfords using the wrong picture, every web site selling Continentals also use the more expensive tyre picture when selling the lesser models.
I like:good grip, good cleaning in mud, fast rolling, light
I don't like as much:not the best

Mountain King
Posted25 June 2012
I recommend this product!
Have tried these tyres and am fairly happy with them for the money. They give better grip in loose and soft conditions to the cross king, and are a fairly fast rolling tyre. However they do not grip as well as the rubber queen and for a tyre of the same size are smaller so don't have the comfort of a large air cushion. Also when a trail gets damp at the start of a rain storm, they offer near zero grip on stones, almost to the point of feeling like you are on ice!! Good but not excellent tyre for general use.

Queen of the trail
Posted25 June 2012
I recommend this product!
Have just put these on my bike and am really impressed. On hard surfaces, they do drag and are not a match to the cross or mountain king for speed. However due to there size there ride is real comfortable and grip is fab. In a rather muddy forest of dean on the week end, and there was not many places these tires would not go!
I like:price, size, grip, comfort
I don't like as much:slow on hard surfaces, size (big for some bikes)

Cross King
Posted07 March 2012
I recommend this product!
Just fitted two of these to my 09 Carrera Fury. What a difference, the tyres run almost silently and are very fast rolling. Grip levels are high, inspiring very confident fast cornering. They do get a bit unstuck in mud, but then with a low knob tread like this what tyre would not!! Well recommended."
I like:light, fast, good grip, low cost
I don't like as much:not for deep mud.

I recommend this product!
This bike is a rocket ship! I have three hardtail MTB's, and this is the lightest and fastest of them all. Its not all been plain sailing mind, as have had a Juicy 3 leak and replaced under warranty and the fork is a pain to get the right set-up, but when you do its great. The Speed king tyres don’t last long (600 miles with rotation front to rear), watch the paint as its thick and chips easily and the saddle is not the best. But other than that, for performance and value you will have to spend a lot more to beat it. Get one!!
I like:value, speed, lightness, equipment, looks
I don't like as much:fork set up hard, fragile paint, saddle not great
