LS2 Helmets OF569 Open Face Motorcycle Helmet (Solid Gunmetal, XX-Large)

Price: $99.95

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one I've been looking for, June 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a terrific helmet. I love the flow-through ventilation, quick release strap, flip up face shield and sun shield. It is of a substantial build and though it's not full-face, it feels like it. There are little zipper pockets near the release strap for an extra key, cash, whatever. My only nitpick: I wish the ear cutouts were larger as my large ears could use them. The flip up face shield is a God-send. I wish I'd had it in my early days of riding. I will be purchasing a second one for the lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blindingly Good, April 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are not your typical cheapo big box store bike lights. You get what you pay for. These things are BRIGHT! One of the great things about daytime LED running lights on cars is that they are so visible. These bicycle lights are the same. Their impressive lumen output will make you all the more visible in daylight hours for increased safety. The front light seems about as bright as a car headlight! There are multiple modes for steady, pulsing, flashing with different and random flash patterns, your choice. Each comes with a quick attach/detach clip to handlebar/post mount so you can take take them with you when you park. Warning: do not look directly into these lights -- they are blinding!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one for me, April 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love this thing. It's exactly what I wanted to help me map my rides. Attaches securely to the handlebar with hex screw and nut (tool included, as well as extra rubber shims for a perfect fit). The spring clip holds my iPhone 6 safely (will also hold larger phones such as 6+), and the stretch corner fasteners (integrally attached to the handlebar mount) give extra security. Interestingly, the red shade exactly matches my Apple silicone red phone cover. The ball mount allows the phone to be turned vertically or horizontally as well as up and down for a personalized viewing angle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get This One, April 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought two of these for my bikes. They work as advertised. Order the largest size only if you have a 'beach cruiser' type seat. Otherwise, the medium fits just about every other road or trail bike seat. The really great thing about this product is if you forget to use it before it rains, you can still slip it over the seat to ride dry. Infinitely superior to plastic shopping bags and they won't blow off while being transported on a vehicle bike rack.

This is the classic rear rack design that's been around for decades. It's very well made and comes with all the necessary hardware for attaching to the bike, even if the cutouts are not present on the bike frame. Installation was very easy. It will give many years of service.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well -- be prepared to teach yourself to assemble and use, January 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like to make my Americano/Long Black with the freshest possible coffee. Pre-ground works well but goes stale within a week in a container. I use an AeroPress coffeemaker to brew individual cups so grinding fresh from whole beans just before brewing gives the best possible flavor.

It's a good thing the instructions for this grinder have picture-diagrams because that's what it took to assemble this thing. Once together, however, it grinds very well with its ceramic blades. Be aware that the grind adjust is very delicate. A full turn can give you a much finer or coarser grind than desired. This grinder is capable of producing both 'chunks' and 'dust.' The receptacle glass jar has a separate lid to keep leftover grounds fresh. The unit also comes with two rubber-like attachments for which there are no instructions. I finally figured the first one serves as a cap-guard for the bean grind cup. The second one is for attaching to the bottom of the jar which gives it more stability while grinding. As others have noted, the handle nut could use a washer to keep it from loosening.

I give the grinder 5 stars. Subtract 1 star for poor instructions.

Easy to read. If more than half the bubble is outside the center -- fix the level on your RV so fridge isn't damaged.
