3.0 out of 5 stars pros and cons as a serious spin bike, February 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Meh, it's only okay. I wish I'd gotten a better bike, but it'll do.

Cons:
1. No forward/backward handlebar adjustment. The front of the bars feels very far away and I'm tall. Not at all ideal for shorter people.
2. The bolt to adjust resistance is very inconsistent. It's hard to find repeatable resistance levels. For example doing the usual spinning sit-stand transitions, I find it really hard to find the right resistance and repeat it. I also have to turn the knob several full turns to get the transition right. On a real spin bike it's more like a half a turn or one full turn, and you get consistent repeated tension. This just seems to have a huge amount of slop in the resistance adjustment and that's very annoying.

Pros:
1. Very smooth
2. Heavy and solid so it feels very stable

If you just sit in the saddle and cycle your legs around for a while you'll like this bike, but if you like to get in and out of the saddle and do "hills" like a spin routine this bike is not great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not functional for serious barefoot cycling, February 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sunlite Barefoot Cruiser Pedals
These just don't work for me at all as a barefoot pedal. The big problem is just that they're too small. My toes hang off the front of the pedal and hit the edge in a very uncomfortable way. You can't really stand up or apply any serious power. Sure they work fine if you keep your weight on your butt and push gently, but that's no fun. They need to be about twice as long to actually work as a platform for barefoot riding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best toe spreader, February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've tried a lot of toe spreader products and these are the best I've found. They're comfortable enough to actually wear in your shoe all day, which means correcting the toe placement when you are active on your feet, not just when passively lying around.

My feet are size 11 4E or 5E , very wide in the forefoot, and the Medium size seems to just right for me. I guess most normal-width-footed people should get these in Small. The Large is for sasquatches only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not wide, February 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
NOT WIDE. I ordered an 11 XW (extra wide). My feet are 10.5 4E, with tailor's bunions. These are too tight across the ball of the foot, and VERY tapered in the toe box. I thought orthopedic shoes would be more accommodating for toe space, these are archaic middle-ages style toe-squeezers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fun book, terrible print quality control, January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The content of the book is 4 stars. It's light-hearted, sexy, beautiful. It's a very big book, probably 80% of the photos are just throwaways, but there are still quite a few striking gems to find.

The problem is the print quality control. That's 0 stars. My copy was covered in streaks, tons of dust, smudges. It all occurred while the ink was still wet; it's like a dust storm blew through the printing facility and left grains all over the pages. Absolutely terrible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Way oversize, cheapo fleece, January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pretty standard cheapo fleece that has that really staticy cheapo fleece feel. It's *way* ovesize. I'm 6'2" 200 lbs , and the L is baggy like a garbage bag, it fits like a normal XL fits me. I should have ordered a medium (normal mediums never fit me).

They leak. They don't actually seal. Yeah it's all very cute that they stack and click together, but tupperware that doesn't actually seal in liquids is pretty useless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fixed hidden inner fold, January 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unusable for me. This hat has a folded under hidden cuff at the bottom that's sewn in. This makes the bottom of the hat stay flat, which means you can't bunch, fold or roll the bottom edge of the cap at all. That means the only way you can wear it is with the bottom edge flat, which is a no-go for me. The material also feels coarser and thinner than other acrylic hats I have.

These are adorable, pretty accurate frog & toad dolls. They've held up pretty well to lots of play over a few months.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thick pillows are not toddler pillows, January 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A four inch thick pillow is totally inappropriate for a toddler's body geometry. Toddler pillows should be very thin, 1-2 inches thick, so their neck is not being propped at an extreme angle to their body. This pillow is worse than useless, it's actively harmful.
