It's been over a year since my last post and I've been naughty in not doing much here.
Anyhoo it's time to get working again on this page and in doing so I will be doing reviews of everything and anything, bike related or not! If I like something I'll say, if I think it's shit I will say - punches will not be pulled!
So first up we have something bike related! No surprise there!
I hadn't really heard of Decathlon up until late last year; they're a large, French based retail outlet specializing in sporting goods. I was inclined to stay away due to Halfords' service being wank, but one can't paint all bit stores with the same brush.
I needed some inner tubes and I wasn't prepared to pay a fiver each at the local ripoff bike shops in the area; so off I pootled and grabbed 2, shrink wrapped, road bicycle tyres from Decathlon.
I didn't need to use them instantly but having spares is always wise, especially when you do regular long distance. They were needed eventually and not had a problem with them. They seem thinner than I've used before but once pumped up they are fine and for £2.99 well worth getting as back ups.
