Product Review: Halfords three assorted finishing pads

rating is 0 Parts & accessories

Halfords three assorted finishing pads, £2.99 Time tested: Two years What’s good? A paint sprayer friend of mine first showed me the many uses of these pads. Strictly speaking they’re for preparing surfaces prior to painting, however I’ve found them extremely useful for cleaning metal surfaces on my bike. Teamed with a squirt of brake cleaner, I gently rub clean ...

Product Review: Oxford Lithium Battery Hot Vest

Oxford Lithium Battery Hot Vest, £149.99 Time tested: 3000 miles / 12 months What’s good? This is the only item of heated clothing I’ve ever owned, so my frame ofreference isn’t as strong as it could be, but I can categorically confirm that having a heated layer is a darn sight more toasty than not having a heated layer. I ...

Product Review: Casey Stoner, Pushing the Limits

Casey Stoner, Pushing the Limits, £9.99 Time used: One week What’s good? From his domination of Aussie flat track to MotoGP, Casey Stoner’s autobiography is fascinating. His hero growing up was Mick Doohan and you get the feeling he’d rather GP bikes had remained 500cc two-strokes. He might have retired at just 27, but you quickly realise he’s done his ...

Product Review: Abus Detecto 7000 RS2 disc lock

Abus Detecto 7000 RS2 disc lock, £120 Time tested: Three years What’s good? As long as I have a little bit of room available in a bag, pannier, under the seat or in a topbox this disc lock goes with me as a visible and audible deterrent to scumbag thieves. It’s got great build quality, the key is small but ...

Product Review: Holroyd Race-Tech tyre warmers

Holroyd Race-Tech tyre warmers, £99 Time tested: Two years What’s good? Holroyd tyre warmers are certainly robust. Tyre warmers can really get put through it in the heat of a race weekend – torn off in a hurry, left in a heap on the floor, put away warm – and lesser warmers always end up only lasting half a season. ...

Product Review: Facom J.161 3/8in ratchet

Facom J.161 3/8in ratchet, £37.37 Time tested: Four years What’s good? The smooth operation of this dinky 3/8in Facom ratchet is a delight, and the fact it has 72 teeth in the ratchet means it will work in more confined spaces. The extra teeth (the equivalent in my perfectly serviceable Halfords set only has 45 teeth) means it doesn’t need ...

Product Review: Forcefield Tornado+ shirt

Forcefield Tornado+ shirt, £50 Time tested: Three months/2000 miles What’s good? This windproof and thermal layer has been a brilliant addition to my winter riding kit this winter and hugely overperforms against the perception of just how thin the material feels. As a layer that goes on top of my baselayers but underneath a Cordura jacket it acts as an ...

Product Review: Laser Fuel Transfer Hose

Laser Fuel Transfer Hose, £15 Time tested: Six months What’s good? Anyone who has ever tried to siphon fuel by sucking on a length of hose (do your own jokes) will know that it leaves a rather unpleasant taste in your mouth – even if you don’t get a mouthful of petrol. Anything that removes the misery of that has ...

Product Review: EDZ Innershell shirt

EDZ Innershell shirt, £50 Time tested: Three years/3000 miles What’s good? This super-thin inner liner goes with me almost everywhere I ride. Thanks to its tiny dimensions when rolled up, and minimal weight of just 90 grams, I barely notice it stashed at the bottom of a rucksack or dropped into a pannier. The material is wind and shower proof, ...

Product Review: Oxford Aquatex bike cover

Oxford Aquatex bike cover, £25   Time tested: Eight years at least What’s good? I use this outdoor cover when my own 1998 Honda CBR600F-W is stored in my garage during the times when I have use of MCN test bikes and despite being over-engineered for the job of covering a bike parked indoors, I like the extra protection my ...
