Has got all the bits you need to get between the gears and clean the chain. The handle is made of plastic so may not be as strong as you would like
I recommend this product!
I like:cleans well
I don't like as much:plastic handle

Holds the bike steady while doing routine maintenance. A good little stand for the price and the hooks are covered to protect the bike paint work. Holds the bike up at the rear of the frame and the hooks can be fitted at different heights to fit your bike size - mtb bmx

Have put this in a second bike as i have the slime tubes in my commute bike. This works out cheaper than 2 tubes and is easy to get in the tubes while still on the bike - so no messing removing tyres.
Past experiences have proved it to work well but a big hole gives you a big mess. I still recommend as it has worked on several occasions
I recommend this product!

Have these fitted only when going off road. They don,t stop all the mud and water but keeps most of it off your face and back.
Not a bad set of guards they fit easy. Although i use tie wraps on the front as they are easier than the straps supplied.
I recommend this product!

Replaces the saddle that came with the bike which wasn't up to much.
This one was easy to fit - done in about 10 minutes and is a big improvement in comfort

Stops the squeaking on everything i have used it on and leaves a ptfe coating to help keep water out - I use it on all my bikes after washing to displace the water and lubricate any cables or moving parts.
Overall a good product to have on standby
I recommend this product!

I have got these tyres for my commute bike for the winter hike - they went on very easy and don,t seem to have much rolling resistance. They have a good grip on road and on the track to work. They are a bit more expensive but i went for the thinner size more than cost
I recommend this product!
I like:grip, size

what tyres do you recommend for on road use

I fitted the schwalbe city jet tyres they are just for road use and with a 85psi you can get some real speed with a lot less effort (fitted on a kraken ) semi-slicks would be better if you do on & off road rideing
