3.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy rack, but with issues for modern mountain bikes, May 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First the good: it's a sturdy rack, made with heavy gauge steel tubing and the fit/finish is first rate. I am very happy with this aspect of the product. I picked this rack because it lets me put bikes on both sides, so as to better fit the long shape of the garage available space.

Assembly is very straight forward, just 8 bolts with nuts and it goes together in about 10 minutes.

The reason I gave it only 3 stars is that unlike what the product description claims, this does not fit all tire sizes. I really wish they could have spaced the vertical bars evenly, because as is, the six thinner slots will not fit tires wider than about 2.2". With mountain bikes going to tires wider than 2.2" and with rims also getting wider, they will have to go into the wide slots - and there's only two of those. I have six bikes for the family, two with tires that are already too wide to fit. It's a downer that when I go to change tires for the other bikes, I'll have to consider the rack as a limitation on tire width - this is just not something one should have to worry about. This caused me to take away a star.

Another star is lost because a 29er tire simply does not fit. The rack is not tall enough. If I tilt the bike I can kind of jam it diagonally into one of the wider slots and it kind of will stay in place, but this is not a proper fit. If they make the rack about another inch or two taller, it will fit a 29er tire.

Stacking the bikes into the rack takes a little bit of planning. Obviously you would alternate front-back-front so that the handle bars don't interfere with each other. But you also have to be careful that the wheel of one bike isn't bumping into the brake rotors of the bike on the other side. Again, it takes a little planning, but evenly spaced vertical slots would have significantly alleviated this issue. 5 out of the six bikes I have use disk brakes so this was problematic for me.

I'm going to keep the rack, but I probably would not have bought it to begin with had I known about the limitations. A different rack would have meant more space needed to hold the bikes, but at least many of those racks have no wheel size limitations because they don't have a top cross bar. I'll live with it for now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compact screwdriver, April 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great compact screw driver. I wish the clutch had settings with even less torque, so that I can use this with some of the smaller screws without fear of stripping the holes. But as is, very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great clock, April 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works great. Silent and the smooth movement of the second hand is hypnotizing. Quality is not the best but the price can't be beat if you want a sweeping hand. The battery box cracked from the force of trying to insert a AA battery. I've been working out, focusing on the inner head of my triceps, so this was expected. I taped it back up with some strapping tape, which should hold just fine.

The clock came with a personally signed card from the company president? Nice touch though really unnecessary. It must have taken a long time to sign all those cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best minimalist case, April 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The best minimalist case. It's the perfect fit for my new M9. For newer sleek flagship phones, a bulky case hides the beauty. Even the so called slim or "super slim" cases are just too thick. My M7 survived 2 years of use with a vinyl skin on it with minor nicks at the corners and I was prepared to do the same with the M9. Some people drop their phones all the time, but if you are careful with your phones, an ultra thin case like this is perfect.

The design of this case is great. The cutouts are perfectly placed - thank goodness they don't have a cut-out for that blessed piece of black plastic on the top of the phone. It's the thinnest case I've ever used but I think it can be even thinner. I just need a case that can protect the phone from scratches and drops from say 2-3 ft high, like when it slips out of your pocket while getting into your car. I am getting rid of pants/shorts with shallow pockets, but it does still happen.

The color is frosted clear, you can still clearly see the HTC logo and the fine print on the back of the phone. The gold trim is a bit muted but still visible to be appreciated.

Anyway, if you want a minimalist case for your phone, you can't do better than this right now. With a case as thin as this, I may not go to a vinyl skin when one becomes available - which is still the ultimate in thin scratch protection while preserving the original device design/profile. The additional benefit with this case is protecting the corners and edges, which may be worth it.
