    nice grips

    posted by failbooru on 10/14/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very solid, reasonable size and tilt angle, relatively light. The plastic cap on the end of the grip have a recess for your thumb, feels very comfortable. The coating is matt and quite thick: no scratches visible after 5 months of everyday use.
    Cons:
    To install these, you need to remove everything from the way. It is not a problem if you are going to use them at the handlebar...

    Better than the ones I can buy in local store

    posted by failbooru on 06/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The lock mechanism is the best I've seen on these: the key has little recesses on its blade, so I doubt it can be lockpicked. The lock is also quite heavy, which means good amount of steel.
    Cons:
    Like any simple bicycle lock, it can be cut or hammered pretty easily. I don't think regular wire cutters will do, but thieves ...

    Very pleasing

    posted by failbooru on 06/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    These are strong and well-finished. Comes in a handy case, not too hard to move them in and out or twist to the side to reach the smaller ones, but not too loose as well.
    Cons:
    Not detected. After a month of working with my bicycle they only show little signs of normal wear - the black coating is damage...

    Useful thingy

    posted by failbooru on 04/10/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Regardless of the thinness (it is very thin and soft) it will easily keep the wind out of your neck and face. It is amazing how much this thin cloth can help when you ride in a chilly weather. It also can be a sweat rag or handkerchief, if you want it to.
    Cons:
    I can't think of one. If the color of this one is not appealing to you, you can always choose another here on DX. It is not sup...

    Good adapter, but not for Note 2

    posted by failbooru on 04/07/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Looks neat and almost the same as stock Note 2 adapter (just a little smaller).
    Cons:
    It can only output 1 A current. So it cannot charge Note 2 which require 2 amps. When I tried to charge, it went hot like hell ...

    It can be used as cadence meter

    posted by failbooru on 04/07/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It has backlight, which is not goes off while you ride. This is important actually, and I've seen speedometers which require you to push the light button every time. It also has stopwatch and some kind of timer (or distance limit), so you know when to stop ...
    Cons:
    The backlight is activated by two buttons pressed at the same time. The mount is not very sturdy, I had to add a few drops of g...

    very not completely bad

    posted by failbooru on 04/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    First, it's a bluetooth mouse - so it does not require any dongle to work with any notebook, tablet or smartphone. Second, it has built-in li-ion rechargeable battery, so you don't have to buy any batteries. Li-ion is also better and more handy than Ni-MH b...
    Cons:
    The mouse has noticeable lag when moving the cursor across the screen. Since there is almost the same mouse here on DX (SKU 307...

    useful thingy

    posted by failbooru on 04/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Well-built, strudy, powerful. The temperature control also means that the gun will not overheat when it has nothing to do - it will just automatically turn off. The glue sticks very well and fills hollows nicely. I even used it to fixate a sensor wire on my...
    Cons:
    The temperature control is not easy to reach and turn when you are working. Also, because of the feeding lever design, if you p...

    Good product for the price

    posted by failbooru on 09/27/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This kickstand can easily be adjusted for the bike height and stand angle. It fits perfectly for 26" bike. It is slightly better than the stock stand mounted between the wheels: the bike stands firmly and don't wobble.
    Cons:
    The stand is a little loose on its retracted position - it will shake on pebbles and such. It will not draw the all way to the ...

    Useful, but needs some glue

    posted by failbooru on 09/14/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The reflectiveness is good for a sticker (a cat-eye is still better). It has hexagonal grid, handy when you want to cut it on size.
    Cons:
    The adhesiveness is not too great. Enough to hold it in place on plain surfaces, but if you want to put it on your bike tubes i...
