Product review: Talco Impact driver

Mark Holmes, 24 March 2010 15:07

Talco Impact driver, ‘inherited’ (similar available for under £15 online)Time owned: 28 years What’s good? I’ve had this tool since I was at college, having borrowed it from a friend who never asked for it back, so it didn’t cost me anything. Over the years it has proved invaluable at freeing seized or over-tightened bolts and screws, especially of the ...

Product review: Venhill 500A quick-action throttle

Chris Newbigging, 10 March 2010 17:00

Venhill 500A quick-action throttle, £39.20Miles covered/time: One year/one race season What’s good: Standard TZR250 throttles seem to turn 360° before you get full throttle – this Venhill item can be switched between 1/4 turn and 1/8th turn (if you have a death wish). Save cash on motorcycle products I’ve left it on 1/4 turn, and it’s given quick, smooth throttle ...

Product review: Triumph 675 kiddimoto

Guy Procter, 01 November 2009 13:05

If you hadn’t heard by now, my Daytona 675 long term test bike has been well and truly destroyed (it wasn’t me). Now the only 675 in my life is a toy one. It differs in a few trifling ways from my bike (wooden monocoque, twin pipes, no brakes, £100 from Triumph’s new range of accessories), but it’s a fantastic ...

Rucksack review: Oxford Aeropack Xpert

Guy Procter, 23 October 2009 16:04

Oxford Aeropack Xpert, £40 (£36.09 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: 3500/6 months What’s good? For any load short of my hefty security chain and Abus padlock I favour a rucksack. This is the least-niggly, most bike-optimised one I've tried. The big, flat straps do up easily and securely in an x-shape across my chest with a single clasp, it's big enough ...

Product review: Garmin 550 sat nav

Michael Neeves, 25 September 2009 10:00

Garmin Zumo 550 sat nav £545 (£384 on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 4200/three months What's good? It's easy to use, sturdy, waterproof and gets you where you want to go, which is everything you need from a sat nav. Find your way with a bike sat nav I keep it in the top of my tankbag and not hardwire in and ...

Autocom makes getting lost much more pleasurable!

James Keen, 19 August 2009 11:29

I hate to admit it, but we were lost. On the relatively short ride from Warwick back to the MCN office in Peterborough, me and MCN lead web producer Sam had missed a turn and ended up in the centre of Coventry. Normally this sort of situation is a nightmare, especially when there are a couple of you on bikes ...

Review: MCA Hydraulic Cable Oiler

Simon Relph, 10 June 2009 16:47

What’s good? Cables always stiffen up with time and quite often seize. To combat this I have been using a hydraulic cable oiler. Once fitted onto the end of a cable you simple wind in the thread and it forces right the way down to the other end, lubricating the entire length making them better than new. Ideal for all ...

Product review: Scottoiler FS365 Protector Spray

Andy Downes, 02 April 2009 17:30

Best thing about it: As an antidote to the horribly salty British winter roads the FS365 Protector Spray is just one part of the armoury needed to keep corrosion at bay. I use it after every ride when I get home – even daily commuting. The best tip is to pour it into a pump-action plant sprayer as it saves ...
