Very nice! I do love Citizen, especially their Eco Drive Titanium chronographs, but they were a little out of my budget sadly. It was either gonna be a Seiko 5 or a Timex for me, and I chose the Seiko because it was priced very well. I'd love to own a Citizen as well though (and maybe an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch while I'm at it )

They are great reservoirs. However, note two things. One you need to bottom feed/empty and two mine came with no plugs and no connector for the pump (the three silver bits).

Quality though was ace.

Longest anything has ever taken was three weeks. Hong Kong is usually a week or two. China? yeah that is longer, but patience pays dividends dude. I've just ordered this lot...



£18. I did my homework first, because a bad crank can be dangerous, but even my mate who still races pro at 42 years old is running one and said it's awesome. Closest you will get is the Shimano, and that is £130. I watched a couple of Youtube vids too, it weighs 590 grams. I also got this for £17.



A Cannondale one would cost £150+ I don't care if it isn't as strong,the whole point is to drop it and not use it. Then I got this for £18.



Same thing again, I am not about to sit on a solid carbon seat. But even the rails are carbon, so I am shedding about 600 grams just switching out the seat and post. Would have cost me £300 plus using name branded components.

Thing is dude I wouldn't mind, right, if you got what you paid for. But, given red man's greed has basically had them ship everything from China and get it all made there? you can't even buy that quality any more. Everything and anything, all feckin' made there any way ! to the same bloody standard (see also - Razer).

I bought this desk the other week on Amazon, described as, and I quote "High Quality". It's bloody awful. Laminate like paper, MDF underneath (well at least it wasn't chip board I guess?) and looks a bit tacky. Thankfully with the huge mat I bought and once the monitor and computer go on there you won't really see much of it.

Agree there mate even Draper power tools are now made in China and it appears you can get identical stuff from China at a fraction of the cost.
I do think cheap often means cheap as I had a socket set from Asia and the moment I attempted to remove a stubborn nut, cracked a socket open so bought a good Halfrauds one with a life time guarantee and never had an issue again.
Sadly health means I can no longer play about with classic cars or find a job so will start offloading my tools when I can find motivation to do so.

I usually use half decent tools. As they say, a man is only as good as his tools..

My jigsaws are both Bosch, one of which is a pro model. When I was 18-27 I was absolutely obsessed with 18" woofers. My hobby was box building, and believe me crap tools made for crap boxes. My brother used to loan me his planer and belt sander and ETC but I always had my own jigsaws.

Thing is, you can pretty much tell the quality of a tool just by looking at it. Instead of buying a cheap bottom bracket tool I got a good one. Glad I did, because it shows no wear. Unlike the chain link extractor that fell apart after two uses, FFS.
