    Bad quality

    posted by midlander on 02/28/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Smart idea to hide the tool in the bar. Weight pretty acceptable (125 g without the tool and caps). Contains the most important tool for outdoor bike servicing. It holds in place and does not rattle.
    Cons:
    The chain cutter is very bad. The tip of screw bended during the first use. The thread of screw is loosen and I guess I will te...

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

    Cons:
    - only can be used with computer (usb transmitter) - battery cannot be replaced

    Perfect for modding!

    posted by midlander on 09/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Weatherproof, good runtime. Perfect for modding. I have changed the rgb diodes for a sku. 1105, together with a resistor change. The modes are changed by a 6-mode switch (5modes+off), by replacing it (sku. 5660 already on its way from DX) you can leave out ...
    Cons:
    Short straps. The battery containment is somewhat short, standard AA accu hardly fit in. The battery cover probably isn't water...

    Nice servo

    posted by midlander on 09/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good price. Very light, although not the lightest. Digital - accurate. No servo glitches. Has a standard dimensions.
    Cons:
    I do not undestand why, but the servo is working in reversed order compared to other servos. Which was a unpleasant surprise wh...

    Useful

    posted by midlander on 11/01/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very useful if you have a diode and need some reflector, which was my case. Nicely manufactured.
    Cons:
    It's all metallic so you have to insulate the diode well, otherwise you'll get the short circuit.

    Excellent!

    posted by midlander on 11/01/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Sound great, for the first time I can hear basses! Look really good, I expected that they are made of plastic with metallic look but they are really made of aluminum. The outer noise is not completely suppressed so you can still hear the cars when crossing ...
    Cons:
    May not pass into every ear, concerning me they are fine, but my girlfriend can't use them. Changing the spare buds might take ...

    Contains much less

    posted by midlander on 10/26/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap - if it was really 20 g, it would be a great price. Good package - it's sealed and you won't squeeze the inside out inaccidently. White color makes it easy to control the amount spread onto a heatsink, it's nicely visible.
    Cons:
    The content is much less than 20 g. The tank together with content weights just 13 g, so inside there might be some 5-7 g of gr...
