    ROSWHEEL 11494 Polyester Bicycle Handlebar Bag - Grey + Black

    posted by hirou on 08/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My group does long distance riding. Our longest rides are over one hundred miles or 160 Km and we need to carry spare innertubes, food, jackets, locks, cables, batteries, sunblock, tools and other items that will not go into pockets. This bag holds them all...
    Cons:
    The bag will work like a fairing and cuts the wind in front of you. That makes biking easier and if you race that would be an i...

    Amazing Digital Laser Tachometer with 1/10 of an RPM readout.

    posted by hirou on 03/11/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This tachometer replaces a broken strobotach that cost $550 US dollars. The replacement battery for the old strobotach was $48. For just a little bit of money I have an automatic tachometer that seriously kicks butt over the old one. Its even better than th...
    Cons:
    None that I can see.

    posted by hirou on 03/07/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice fit and finish and the pen writes well. The nib is very fine and a shield covers most of the pen's quill area so you do not get ink on your fingers. There is a supplied refillable reservoir that can be exchanged with a disposable if you want. Th...
    Cons:
    One issue is that the nib is very small so it does write like a fine tip roller ball pen and the since the quill portion is cov...

    http://dx.com/p/ultrafire-wf-188-rapid-charger-for-3-2v-3-7v-lithium-batter

    posted by hirou on 03/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have had 4 Lithium chargers and 9 NiMH battery charges and this is the best. It charges two batteries independently and to different voltages. This allows me to use batteries of different chemistry and it also has different charge rates. I generally slow...
    Cons:
    It is much more money than a single cell charger or a single voltage dual charger.

    http://dx.com/p/flexible-neck-usb-powered-clip-on-10-led-keyboard-light-118

    posted by hirou on 03/02/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Its bigger and better than the other USB powered lights on this site. It has a nice shield for the LEDs and a flexible cord. I was going to use it for a laptop but because of its on/off button and its nice clip I have attached it to my computer desk and plu...
    Cons:
    Its too big and the cord is too long for a keyboard light for a laptop. The clip is huge because it has an switch. If it were ...

    Tachometer

    posted by hirou on 01/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    This unit outperforms my $500.00 USD strobotachometer. It runs on only one 9 volt battery unlike my old photo digital tachometer. The old one needed 6 AA batteries and ate them up. My old strobotachometer needed a $38.00 USD battery every once in a while. T...
    Cons:
    You may have to use the supplied reflective tape.

    posted by hirou on 12/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its a high output Cree so its got a lot of throw. The spill is less than a SSC P-7 so its better if you do high speed night bicycle riding like I do. As long as the bicycle is moving the flashlight does not get hot even after three battery changes. That's ...
    Cons:
    Its a Cree so it has the Cree rings that are pretty famous. There are some off colors at the edge of the hotspot also. I figur...

    posted by hirou on 12/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are the best cells for the money. They really are at least 2400mAh cells unlike some of the other blue, red, or gray shrink wrapped cells. Because the other cells do not deliver rated charge they might seem like a better deal but in reality they are n...
    Cons:
    More money on the surface than other cells with the same listed rating. The others have not been verified.

    Silicone Vehicle Anti-Slip Mat with Lexus Logo - Black + White

    posted by hirou on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All of the anti-slip mats work exactly the same but this one has a nice LEXUS logo on it. I use it to put on the wood console so I don't have to scratch the finish for when I put my GPS on it. I used to be concerned with the cell phone also but I put a cove...
    Cons:
    I got one for free in the past so I was not expecting to pay for it but the free one had some strange company's logo on it and ...

    2011 Euskadi Team Short Sleeve Cycling Bicycle Bike Riding Suit Jersey + Sh

    posted by hirou on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a professional level kit. For those that do not know, there's this race in France once a year. During the race the riders climb hills and the best rider or head member of the riding team is awarded King of the Mountains. This is the jersey. This is...
    Cons:
    Some people may say the style is crazy or the colors do not match but this is the real deal. You had better have some pretty go...
