Cruz Tools Tire Pro Tire Levers Changing tires is about as much fun as painting your house, but having the right tools can make the job easier. These tire levers are forged and heat treated, using carbon steel alloy. They will flex and not bend, giving you confidence. At 9 (240mm) long, they are long enough for necessary leverage, but small enough to fit into most fanny packs, saddlebags, or tank bags. Set of 2 Levers

I ordered these after fumbling around with some screwdrivers when changing my last tires. These make the job so much easier. Quite heavier than I expected them to be and I'm sure they will be in my toolbox for many years.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got the 80% dark tint shield as a summer replacement for my clear shield with pinlock. This one seems a little thinner and doesn't snap shut with the force of the clear one but that may be because I have not put the pinlock extra shield into this one yet. I may not seeing how I only use during sunny warm days.
Quality is good, no scratches and should last a long time.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had this helmet for a month now and love it. Because it is so light, I haven't even picked up my older helmets lately. The pinlock shield that comes with it does a great job even in rainy and very cold (10F) conditions.
Colors are very vibrant, I got the Red, White, Blue because 'Murica!
Venting is great and I can actually feel cool air on my head when the vents are open but not when they are closed.
At this sale price it is a great deal. At full MSRP, I would say it is an average deal.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am moving to an apartment complex soon and I wanted an additional layer of security for my scooter so I wouldn't have kids hopping up on it or playing with it.
I chose this one because it was the cheapest one with an alarm built into it. The Xena was close behind it.
The lock is heavily built and I suspect that it would take while for anyone to get this off without a key. Easily opens and closes, can lock without the alarm on as well.
When on the front caliper, I can still move the wheel side to side but if I try to pick the wheel up and set it back down, the sudden impact will turn it on. There is a 5 second light beep, once per second then if you don't turn it off by key within that time, the 15 second siren comes on and is much louder.
It is not as sensitive as I had hoped but the entry level lock does it's job. If someone were to try to pick it up and load it into a truck, this would definitely go off and hopefully get people's attention.
Worth the money for sure.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I really cannot find any faults with this 3/4 helmet. I ride a scooter and the internal shade is awesome. I have the matte black and it catches fingerprints for a while but after a few rains, no big deal. Would get one again in a heart beat.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got this jacket suggested to me by the great customer service dept here when I was looking at others similar to it and I am glad I listened to them. My main concern before buying a jacket was when I sit on my scooter, any other jacket looks like I am wearing a jacket 5 times to large, with the stomach bulging out. This one is nice and slim and only a slight bulge.
I am 5'11" 160 pounds. I got the high-vis medium. I might have been able to fit into a small but I felt the arms would not be long enough.
Airflow on this jacket is perfect. I rode the other day with a teeshirt on under in 80+ degree weather and I felt perfectly comfortable. In fact, after I hit about 20 mph, I felt like I was not wearing a jacket at all. Stopped traffic was comfortable and was not too warm. I have also ridden this in 50 degree weather with a windbreaker on underneath (it was a tight fit) and was comfortable for my 30 minute commute. I feel that a rain over-jacket would cut down on the wind on colder weather too.
Two outside pockets that zip, 2 inner pockets (one zip one velcro), side cinch straps (velcro) and velcro wrist straps are all well made. Also bicep button straps have 2 adjustments and neck strap has 2 buttons as well. Kind of hard to get the neck on the tightest button but it is not needed at all. Little bits of reflective pieces are over the front and back of the jacket by the logos.
Shoulder armor and elbow armor are of generous size and stay in place. The elbow armor extends down a few few inches on the ulna feels comfortable.
Only real con for me is the back "armor" consists of a thin (1/8"?) perforated foam pad. This is not good and I plan to get the Re'vit! Seesoft whenever that gets in stock.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this as what I thought would be a year-round jacket for urban scooter riding. I bought it because it had the armor I wanted and multiple pockets including inside pocket.
I am 5'11", 160 pounds, 32" waist and got a medium. I've riden with this jacket for 6 months now, through the coldest time of the year, down to 20F or so with no complaints. I can fit a long sleeve shirt and sweatshirt underneath with no issues. Everything zips up tight.
Which brings me to my next point, warm weather riding. Without any additional layers underneath, (just a tee shirt) this thing just flops around and feels like I am wearing something way to large for me. Airflow is nice with the mesh zip front and exit vents but the front bunches up and looks like i have a beer gut the size of a pony keg. The side straps help to some extent but always seem to ride up if I tighten them too much. Standing up, the issue is null so perhaps it is just how I sit on the scoot.
Pads see to stay in place and besides for a few tiny stitching issues, still looks brand new. I will probably get another jacket for summer that I can wear just a tee-shirt with and not look too funny.
Yes, I recommend this product.
