Reviews by product category:

Kit that I review I have either purchased, bought at cost price, or some has kindly been donated by companies.

My reviews are honest, detailed and personal; just because a company has provided me with a product, this does not mean I will automatically give it a sparkling review. Rather, if a product is not up to the high standard that I like to promote through the blog, I will abstain from publishing a bad review, and instead try to work with the company to help improve the product. Therefore, all the reviews found on the blog are of products that I fully believe to be great pieces of cycling kit, and that I am willing to endorse with my recommendation.

I do not use a star rating on my reviews, as I believe that different people value different qualities of a product differently; therefore it seems wrong in my view to try and rank a product against others with such personal objectives. I much prefer individuals to read the values and drawbacks of a product in a review, and rank the product themselves.
