Product review: Xena XX10 Disc Lock Alarm

Xena XX10 Disc Lock Alarm, £64.99Time owned: 18 months What’s good: It’s a formidable disc lock and self-arming alarm. By means of jiggery pokery, it can tell whether or not it’s attached to a disc. When it is, the slightest movement will set off a piercing alarm. When it isn’t, it won’t. It’s a handsome gadget in stainless steel. What’s ...

BMW Junior Trike

BMW Junior Trike, £89.95 Miles covered/time: Five-ish/two months What’s good: To the fevered imagination of a three-year-old, the more realistic a toy the better, so the principal appeal to my son of his “motorbike” is probably that it looks a bit like Daddy’s. It’s obvious he finds fun in details like the engine and exhausts, which he’s always touching and ...

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension, £185 Miles covered/time: 1000/three months What's good: It’s saved over £100 compared to getting a replacement shock for my Kawasaki KR1S. If it hadn't needed a new rod as part of the rebuild, a further £75 could have been saved. A new shock would have meant losing the damping adjuster mounted on the sub-frame, which ...
