Halfords Advanced Professional 150 piece socket/ratchet set

Dan Aspel, 27 October 2011 09:47

Time used: Two months What's good: Most of my attempts at bike maintenance have been embarassments. Something like the apes from 2001 angrily beating the ground with a bone. This has at least partly been thanks to inadequate tools. This Halfords kit has been a revelation. I have now been able to fit aftermarket exhausts to my Triumph, remove and ...

GB Racing engine cover set

Dan Aspel, 21 October 2011 09:26

GB Racing engine cover set, £141.77 Time used: Two months What's good: In the wide, wide world of crash protection, GB Racing is definitely one of the premium brands. Made from a nylon/glass composite "chosen for its impact and abrasion resistance", the engine cover set it sleek, solid and subtle. It fits on as quickly and as cleanly as Lego ...

Muc Off Premium Microfibre Polishing Cloth

Dan Aspel, 12 October 2011 17:16

Muc Off Premium Microfibre Polishing Cloth, £4.99Time used: Three years What’s good: I use this polishing cloth to give my Triumph a rub down after every clean. As Muc-Off promises, it doesn’t smear, is extremely absorbent and picks up left over specks of dirt with very little effort. This is all thanks to the “microfibre” technology hidden in its furry ...

Shift-It helmet refresh

Dan Aspel, 19 August 2011 16:12

Shift-It helmet refresh, £2.99 Time used: Two months What's good: Helmet cleanliness is a bit of a neglected topic. Your sweating mug fills that space, day in day out. You sneeze in it, sweat in it and breathe three meals a day into it if you ride often enough. On top of that, most of us stuff our road-smeared gloves ...

Granger's Dirty Scrubber sponge cleaner

Dan Aspel, 19 August 2011 15:47

Granger's Dirty Scrubber sponge cleaner, £2.99 Time used: Two months What's good: Cheap and handy, this coarse sponge - with a soft underbelly and a pre-loaded cleaning fluid dispenser - is nicely put together in a clip-in plastic holder. Press it up against your jacket and scrub away without having to bother with water, bottles of soap or anything else ...

“Charge” movie review: a must see motorcycle film

Dan Aspel, 24 June 2011 10:48

Last month saw the release of “Charge”, British director Mark Neale’s take on the 2009/2010 electric TT races. It’s currently only available on DVD in North America, but with further countries scheduled for release - and digital download options to follow - the makers sent MCN a copy for review. The result? We’re able to wholeheartedly recommend it as one ...

Product review: Oxford Snug

Dan Aspel, 03 February 2011 11:03

Oxford Snug, £13.99 (£13.29 plus postage from MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 600/one month What’s good: Like most decent kit, the Snug is very simple. The twin layer of fleece and ‘FibreTech’ work well together so you have a warm portion around your neck (blocking any breeze to your chest) and a thin, comfortable layer protecting your face from the cold. It’s ...

Product review: Oxford Chillout Essential Balaclava

Dan Aspel, 26 January 2011 15:56

Oxford Chillout Essential Balaclava, £16.99 (£16.14 plus postage on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 500/two weeksWhat’s good: The neck piece is long enough to tuck deep into your jacket, meaning it won’t pop out and will keep the wind from your head, neck and upper chest. Above the nose the balaclava is also made of thinner, softer material, making it relatively easy ...

Lock review: Oxford Barrier chain lock

Dan Aspel, 20 January 2011 16:17

Oxford Barrier chain lock, £42.99Time used: Four months What’s good: I wouldn’t take my bike to London without this. It’s debatable whether any chain in production could keep a professional thief away indefinitely, but something this solid and obvious will deter drunkards, teenagers and opportunists who fancy pushing your shiny bike down the road. Save £££s on motorcycle locks The ...

Product review: Oxford Quartz disc lock

Dan Aspel, 11 January 2011 16:57

Oxford Quartz disc lock, £29.99Time used: 18 months What’s good? I’m a fan of disc locks as they’re compact, lightweight and offer a very obvious deterrent to opportunist thieves. The Quartz ticks all the boxes as it takes a few seconds to slide on to your front disc, stops your front wheel from moving, appears fairly difficult to access once ...
