Ped Baker, 06 August 2014 10:00

Maidstone Motoliner alloy wheel straightening Time tested: n/a What’s good? There are now an estimated 295 square miles of potholes on UK roads* and I suspect the front wheel of my 1990 Harley-Davidson FXR fell victim to one of the blighters some time ago.

Ped Baker, 11 June 2014 09:00

Thor Copper and hide faced hammer, size 1. £13.86 Time tested: 12 years What’s good? This 830g soft-faced hammer has aided removal of countless stubborn swingarm bolts, bushes, axles and other parts for over a decade.

How to Build A Cafe Racer £20Time tested: one month What’s good? Whether you were around at the time of the original ton-up boys, or have been hypnotised by one of the many hundreds of achingly cool (some might say pretentious) blogs and websites, it seems we can’t get enough of cafe racers at the moment.

Ped Baker, 20 January 2012 12:32

Tucano Urbano 323 bar muffs £54.99Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: The 323s are (fake) fur-lined, waterproof and very warm. Perfect for winter commutes, they make sub-zero biking bearable. Elasticated gators around mirror stalks stop icy draughts. Attaching them takes minutes and as they fix onto your bar ends they're stable and stiff enough to prevent being pushed onto levers. ...
