Arghh 'Crappiest' Following up on the 'Best Products' thread: White Lightning - "Cleans and Lubes in One Easy Action". Might as well have used its strong cider namesake. Mavic Factory Wheels. Bust a rim? What's that you say LBS? Have to send it back to factory for repair? Where's that then? Try their home page? Oh yes, here it is, a PO Box address somewhere in Paris. Is there an email address? NO. Is there a telephone number? NO. Contact details for UK distributor? NO. Things may have changed since, but still. Thank you Mavic for the World's First Disposable Wheel. Blackburn Pumps? Lifetime Guarantee? Yes guaranteed for the life of the pump so when you finally need to use it 15 miles from home and it seizes - you are basically f**ked. Complaint to Blackburn made 9 months ago. Still waiting for reponse. Assos Element One Jersey Assos have always tetered on the edge of slick cycling/gay fetish wear. The Element One embraces the latter. It is figure hugging. Very figure hugging. I'm not fat by any means but wearing this (even going up a size) made me look like a huge black condom packed with walnuts. The leaner rider may have got away with it but he wouldn't have got away with the inexplicable 'oiled leather-look' chest insert. WHY? I'm pretty confident about my sexuality but this made me feel like a complete ponce. My wife couldn't stop laughing and the jacket is now known as the "Gimp Suit".
