2016 updated long term review:Logitech G430

A headset should withstand some abuse,but this headset can’t withstand normal use.

Read below to know all the details about how bad it is.

pros:

  • fabric cessions – your head won’t hurt after wearing the headset in  long periods,you will not be as hot as with leather or leather cessions.
  • will fit small heads and bigger heads,even if you are a hardcore head-banger(headbanging not advised) it wont fall off.
  • 3,5 mic speaker and mic plugs
  • microphone is easy to swivel away
  • cable does not kink
  • volume control wheel is good no super high change in volume its how it should be:-)
  • easy to take off the ear cup cushions

cons:

The head-set will break have dropped the head set few times,some times i have shaky hands and drop things so this headset is not for me, it will break!!!

  • it stink weird the first days
  • flimsy
  • microphone have rubber arm that its easy to scratch
  • the volume range is too small when connected via USB,
  • the wire to the ear cup is not unplug-able
  • the micro phone ON/OFF ,volume control is on the the wire, if would be better to have it on the ear cups instead. When I connected the headset via USB sound card, i tried the volume control wheel,and when I roll it closer to the end I got white noise(it might only be my USB sound car that is faulty but i don’t care) I maxed the sound and I got even more white-noise but no increase in sound, the white noise was there even when not listening to music. but when i plugged the headset in via analog 3,5 plugs i could increase
  • easy to scratch
  • after few weeks of use I noticed play in the headband adjustment from side to side

the USB plug got rubber grip

cable is rubber too

the USB sound card is very light I can barely feel it.

microphone is decent, but it will not sound like it would in person

the cession on the headband feels like it got a balloon inside,when you push with one finger the other goes up,I have not taken them apart so don’t know what’s inside.

do not use the USB sound card read why :I recommend using 3,5 plugs and use on-board sound-card or dedicated sound card, the USB sound wont be as clear , i have tested  the headset both via USB and via 3,5 plugs and using onboard sound broad on my ASUS z97 P,with the onboard sound it sounds much better in my opinion I can hear the symbols where i barely could with USB,bass sounds drums sounds more natural,guitar riffs do not sound as soft. the ASUS,Realtek driver can simulate 7,1, I even hear sounds I never heard on Gary Moore’s albums

there is no real reason you should use USB sound card on a gaming pc, only if you got a cheap small mini pc

the headset I used before was Madcatz freq 7 and it was USB card only, there was a cable for phone use but that’s too short for pc use and you could use the controls on the headset, so that silly, so when you buy a headset remember to look for 3,5 plugs/inputs

Logitech G software allows you to tweak the sound but,that’s not the same as getting good sound without tweaking anything.

Conclusion:

If you want Garbage this is for you.

if you want a good and lifelong lasting headset this is not for you

Ubrukelig lykt(useless light): Biketec Lyktsett 3 Led Front/Bak

negativt

altfor svak lykt,lykten er så svak at du kan bare bruke den til å få lys på skoene dine, ikek som en sykkellykt. bedre å spandere på noe til par hudnre kroner leer over tusen lappen.det beste er å ha lyk på sykkelstyret+hjelm lykt.

bak lyset faller av festet så det kan hende du kommer hjem uten bak lys.

jeg syklet i regn vær, pakningene er dårlige sådet kommervann inn i lyktene.

ikke vært prisen

positivt:

  • kan festes under flaskeholder.
  • vekten

negativ

  • gummie hetta som skal beskytte pumpe hode faller ut så når du har den montert på din terrengsykkel så blir kan det komem skitt inn.
  • lekasje av luft
  • pumpa har lufttrykkmåler
  • pris i forhold til funkjsonalitet og kvalitet
  • det tar lang tid å pumpe opp og du komemr til å kjenne det i musklene.

Konklusjon

TEST: Twentyfour Svalbard Hanske

mine hansker har grønn farge istedet for lime og har twentygfour logo på pekefnger, Bra

  • godt grep
  • bra passform,jeg brukte de mange ganger i regnvær og vind på sykkel.
  • ingen problem med bremsing,lett å bevege fingrene.
  • behagelige hansker
  • ingen plagsomem sømmer inni hansken
  • lange nok så du kan trtekke en jakke over de
  • lett å ta på og av

Ikke Bra

  • insiden av hanskene krøller seg,men det kan man fikse lett.
  • jeg syklet i forferdelig regnvær og hanskene ble helt gjennom våte,for å få hanskene vanntette må du bruke impregnering dette har jeg ikke prøvd ennå.
  • den ene flate strikken falt av
  • mine hansker hadde for lange tråder hengene fra sømmene

LED Lenser T7 no.7439 light & Bracket/mount review

its not a bike specific light but,i need a decent light for commuting, but its a horrible choice if you use it at max power for long distances after few days you need new batteries, So I can’t recomend this light for mountain biking.

so i got my self LED Lenser M7 LED  (Item no. 7439) flashlight,

i got a clamp too it fits thick bars and comes with rubber spacers os it can fit on thinner handlebars.

its not a cheap light but the good light are often expensive.

if you crash or get off the pedal and hit the light you will push the light out or almost out of the clamp,but during rides it does not slide out.

pros:

  • light light adjustment
  • made of metal so its strong,but its heavier than plastic lights of course
  • nice button on the back with nice feel,and click.
  • pattern for extra grip
  • good battery cartridge, you cant get the batteries or cartridge stuck inside the light.

cons

  • Last about 6 Hours  with energizer max power batteries, after 6 hours it is getting too weak to ride with
  • lights up way too small area,its useless for riding fast in dark woods or paths/trails.
  • it should be water proof but i got damp inside on the inside behind the glass,but i have ridden in some really bad rain.

Bracket item No. 7799-PT

pros:

  • tool less easy to mount the clamp/mount
  • easy to take off the clamp/mount
  • clamp got turning joint so you can’t adjust the light for the right angle

cons:

  • after more than 1 season the light began to slip forward when riding hard, but that can be fixed with some rubber or tape.

 

Verdict:

This is a ok flash light, but not a bike light, way too narrow and short beam.

Buy a proper bike light.

Creative hs-950 review 1 year is complete garbage

this is a discontinued product,but might still be in stores.

Creative hs950:

longtermreview 1 year

the head band  broke on both sides on the headbandthe screws popped out, the headset was very unconfortable, my ears was hurting afther 1 h of use .

cons: unpresise volume adjustment wheel.

there are some other good headsets on the market,

the hs-950:

cons : unconfortable,,you ears will hurt aftehr a short time,

michrophone is very bad.

the adjustability is bad they sit very looks on your head,

mine cracked under 1 year of use. but you willhear the doorbell.

is worth the price? :NO!

 conclusion:

 horrible ,waste of money!!!


thermaltake azurues mouse:

you can reduse the weightof the mouse with 3 steel weigts, they look similat to small batteries

ym hand is avarage in size and it feels confortable in my hand, its confortable any smaller mouse will be uncofortable for me.

i have used it over 2 years and had no issues

cons:

  • for some the the Tt logo that is flashing can be enoying
  •  cant turn of the red pulsing light ther is no driver to do so.  this is nto a big con if you dont mind the light.

pros:

  • semetrical so you can use for left or right hand
  •  long cable
  • cable strap
  • 1600 dpi for photomanipulation and fps games its a big pro

Review:Madcatz cyborg freq 7- 2 years review Don’t buy this !!! no 3,5 plugs

Madcatz cyborg freq 7: 

long term review: 1 year:

I used it ca 1 year.i read and watched reviews, but they did not tell about the durability, they are stronger than most of the headsets on the market,but i am sure its possible to make them even better.

its confortable,my ears are avarage size, the fit inside the earcups, the sound is good,but you can’t hear the doorbell.

there are 3 modes voice chat ,music, gaming.

music mode sounds like normal stereo, so if s if yo don’t install the driver, it will sound the same as music mode.

i  use music mode no matter what i do.

in the summer you will be hot on the ears and sweat alot with these headsets,

this headset use dolby surround,

there is one button on the left earcup,to turn it on and off.

you need to download the driver to use dolby surround.

the parts of metal are of course strong,

the headset should be build of metal nto onyl the arms holdign thte cups.the headbad must be made of metal or it will guarateed breake.

all common headsets peopel use are made of plastic and they will breake,

i want a headset that last lifetime.

virtual surround is made with software, and its not the headset hardware that makes it.

all stereo headsets can do virtual surround,

there is software that can make you able to use Virtual surround on any headset, like Razer Surrround

its free but the Advanced features are not.

http://www.razerzone.com/surround

Microphone:

the microphone makes my changes my voise so i dotn soudn liek me.

2015 january

the headband broke about in the middle.

cons:

  • no 3.5 plugs for mic and speaker,only single 3.5 plug for mobile devices,of course controllers/buttons do nto work then on pc,and its too short to use on pc anyway,so if you needd the best audio possible dont buy this junk
  •  plastick middle part on the headband, to make it even stronger they should make the whole top part in metal, it wil lbreak! aftehr oen year you wil lprobably get cracks  teh glue that the pad is glued with will be ruined by sweat. the need to make the next version of aluminium, i don’t care that it will be heavier. i am not bending the palstic, i carefully take the headset of my head, this is unaceptable,
  •  the headset-stand is usless. i’ts undessesary.
  • bad volum control on the ear cup,very unprecise too mutch volume change,
  • the pleather(synthetic leather is thin and wears off afther ca 1 year,
  •  the price
  • this is not a one size fits all headsets, avarage headsize but the headset do not stay the head when leaning backwards
  • the peace holdign the cusions can fall off some times
  • the head band cussion is way too thin and its glued to the plastic and the sweat will make ruins the glue, so you will get glue in your hair,the rubber will melt and fall apart because of sweat, a head cussion should be made of fabric on the otu side and foam inside. an NOT rubber
  •   the ear are too thin,they should be mutch deeper, so your ears would not toutch the plastic plate infront of the speakers, my ears are avarage size, but if oyur ears point outwards or are big  it will be unconfortable.
  • poor thread on the cussions so they rip apart,so washing them in wa washing machine is not a good idea.
  • PRICE

pros:

  • all controlls are on the headset ear cups, so no need to finding the volume Control on a cable .
  • detachable and bendable microphone
  • over ear (the ear is inside the ear cup) so its confortable
  • long cable
  • 2nd cable with 3.5 plug
  •  detachable microphone,input cover plug so you dont get some dirt inside
  • comfortable for long gaming sessions
  •  the microphone is decent,
  •  color choise
  •  the cushion is easy to take off if you need to clean it
  • no unessesary lights
  • long cable
  • 3,5 mm plug cable for mobile devises

 CONCLUSION:  

NOT recomend this headset. because of the materials used,and no 3,5 plugs for speakers and microphone

no body likes to buy New headset every year or 2.

even some so called high end headsets have some heakspots.i am not an engeneer but i can see this and udnerstand it.

thin plastic will breake even its its ABS plastic, anything will breake if its too thin.

the headset’s headband must be 100% aluminium.

Fanatec csr wheel, csr elite pedals, csr shifters: 1 year review

the table clamp:

the clamp is have a bad construction there are 2 pins on every clam there are 2 clamps the pins are not secured in any way so too much vibration and they can pushed out after you have used the wheel for a while.

but fanatec have a clubsport table clamp with angle adjustment. all current Fanatec wheels can be mounted to it, and its made of 100% metal.

but if you got a desk with a sharp edge otherwise the wheel will be too loose, but on a desk that have that like a office desk it will be stable, but it’s like that one every wheel. its nothing wrong with it, its impossible to make it worn with a table like that,

like this plate have a edge that fiuts the csr but not if it’s too round or have patterns on it.

something like this will do. the wheel should not move if you clamp it to a table liek the image under, youst look at yourube videos.

the shifter tube thing is flimsy this is not a good construction,, the wheel rim flex.

but the metal tubes make the clamp hold the wheel better.

the is play in the wheel, so i can press the wheel to one side and up,down to one side to the other and so on, it moves more and more,its makes more and more noise because the  plastic parts  are move  more and more. i have recently done some drifting in Assetto Corsa and the wheel was bending mutch, specially the top part. and the sides made clicking sounds.

the dpad is bad, it moves around much when the ffb kicks in.

or when you turn fast., because of that it gets pushed down so you can’t have anything mapped in the game on the dpad.

the t500rs wheel have one stronger motor

, that is stronger than the 3 on the fanatec csr,you can find more about that on the web.

and yes i got the alcentara falling off issue.i playederd Assetto Corsa and rFactor2, if you think about modding there is no point in doing that, better to get a t500rs and mod it.

fanatec have static pedals to mount on the clubsport base,you can maunt things to the wheel base  on the clubsport but not on t500rs or the csr wheel we cant do that.

i dont underestand why there is a limiter that limits the steering to 900 deg fanatec desided to have it 900 only, some street cars have more than 900 deg so it would be nice to have that.

like some lutuses. all of the cars listed here ahve over 900 deg of rotation:

Lotus Exige Scura 2009 ,Lotus Exige S Roadster2013…….

i think this was a mistake to do only 900 on the clubsport wheel, but all the other stuff on it is no mistake,

many people cant deside between t500rs and clubsport wheel.

N on the t500rs it has 1080 degrees, i want to simulate all the cars in the game as realistically as possible,

the msterials used for the clubsport wheel base are a good choise,

the quick reease is a good choise.  the ewheel it sel.

both wheels cost as mutch as a dishwasher.

i think selling t500rs with pedals only is a mistake,

the pedals should have a adapter or usb cable so it could be used seperatly,

http://f-wheel.com/forza-motorsport-csr-wheel


cons:

  • cant adjust ffb in driver but you can onthe wheel it self,its not nice to play rfactor 2 but rfactor 2 have car specific ffb setting otion so possible to turn it up as all sim games have
  • bad d pad ver flimsy so activets the mapped function for the pad not nice when you race. so basicly usless
  • bad clamp
  •  no static pedals
  •  no ability to put real wheels on without extreme modding,
  • alcanatera falls off
  • matte coating falls off
  • one small fan for cooling the wheel base
  • the wheel rim flex

pros

  • ergonomic wheel feels good
  • can hard mount the wheel

the CSR elite pedals

CSR Elite Pedals

Fanatec csr elite pedals, the are ok, i had no issues,if something gets loose jsut tighten the hex cap screws , but his is normal. Do you have ticky brake?, take it apart use bicycle lube, i used weldtite cycle oil, its cheap.

i saw a video where thomas from fanatec used motorex dry bicycle lube on the clubsport pedals.

the pedal-set will slide on a wooden or similar floor surface., so its best you have them taped to the floor, and have them touching the wall., or hard-mount it if you have a simracing cockpit.

worth the cash?:  fanatec clubsport pedals cost little bit but the clutch will me more realistic but not as realistic as you want, then you need to go for gigh-end pedals

http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3489955/CSR_Elite_Pedals_Unboxing.html

pros:

  • can mount custom pedal plates
  • adjust pedal plate hight
  • load-cell for brake
  •  stuff that need to be made of metal is made of metal
  • can hard mount the pedals sett or take them off separately to mount on your rig

cons:

  • places where the dust is hiding, and without a vacumecleaner or som,e brushes its hard to clean, the dust is gonna get on the laodcell and in between the laodcell and the braking mechanism so i used a allen key to remove it when servicing the pedals.
  • there is play in the pedals
  • clutch is not realistic

Csr shifters : they are garbage

CSR Shifter Set US

can’t be used as stand alone, but you can probably mod them,i can’t.

if you have a motion simulator,the sequential shifter will shift,because of vibration., even if you dont use motion simulator it will happened, if you drift,the spring is too light.

a shifter should have mutch stiffer spring.

to use both sfhiters you need 2 controlelr mapping setups, and disconect oen shifter and conenct the other one thsi is not a big deal for me, but but the next csr wheelmust be improved, or maybe just discontinue the csr.

is it worth the cash?:  no!!!

Fanatec clubsport sq v1.0 shifter

cons:

Just few small cons that are not very important:

rubber grips wear out,glue on rubber grips is bad,i taken the rubber grips from the csr wheel and put it on the clamp,,it grips better and does nto slide off.

Fanatec logo wears off fast

inside fanatec clubsport shifter sequential knob

My support experience has been good.

I had issues with some gears not working properly after a while,Fanatec cleaned and greased the shifter, and it works even smoother than the day I got it out of the box.

this is how the shifter knob looks like inside(when you see is CNC aluminium residue,not a big problem but it should not come like this,but i guess only few came like this.
a good review.spot on, but the only thing I would like to add is that the rubber under the clamp wear off fast,i taken the grips from my CSR wheel off and put under the clamp plate and grips the desk better.

Pros: see videos:

how to make skins using gimp

this tuturial is not perfect.i will edit this and improve this,this tuturial is not 100%finished, but hope this helps you. anysuggestions or tips, please comment below.

this is a guide to make skins for rfactor 2

and other games( the naming of the dds files is nto the same in other games but the rest is  this tuturial you can use for other games, this should work in 2.8.6, i dont know about older versions.

older versions do not have exctract , only save as.

this tutorial shows you how to make skins with psd templates.

to be able to extract the skin to DDS (DirectDraw Surface), you must downlaod this

and unzip it.

you don’t need extra software to do this,

but when you download other things for rfactor 2 it could be in rar file or other files that windows explorer does not support,

so you can use 7zip. i used 7zip its free [url]http://www.7-zip.org/[/url]

Install DDS plugin:

To install, extract the file named dds.exe to your GIMP plugins directory.

This directory is usually located at:

C:\Users\username\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins

download this:

[url]http://registry.gimp.org/node/70[/url] or here: [url]http://code.google.com/p/gimp-dds/[/url]

i olso recomend installing irfan view+ plugins it supports almost every image and video and audio format,dds too.

[url]http://www.irfanview.com/[/url] irfan view have a Thumbnail viewer: IrfanView Thumbnails ,so you can can browse images like in windwos explorer, but see thumnails of images files that windwos explorer does not support

I used gimp 2.8 in this tutorial.

Save as (shift+ctrl+S or file then save as )xcf(gimp file that can be edited saved as it is) i dot not use psd files in gimp becaocue i loose layers.

do this to be able to edit it later or make a similar skin.

ctrl+S save

the layer group called ”shadows-lines” : move every layer from that layer group and move it in hte same order it is in the layer group over the layergroup.

the layer group called : paint here

LAYER CALLED Arrière-plan copie 3. Is where you change the color.

add a new layer for the livery,

to do this , right click on one layer,

then click new layer.

add a new layer for every logo and

name them to make it organized.

if you have issues with the templlate and,  the layers,

jsut take them out fro mthe layergroup.

leke on the mr01 template.

Driver template and skin:

move every lay out of every layer group.

Left click on the eye on the side of the layer named : wireframe.

This makes the layer invisible.

When you merged all layers

this is the last part: Layer to image size

Let the layer be selected when you extract(shift+ctrl+E or file export to) the image as shown here : alt at the end (example):car_00alt.dds.

The layer must be selected as you see in the image .

Do NOT celect the alpha1 then the extracted dds will be grey and will not show your skin but a grey car with no or without logos .

channels: Leave the alpha1

Alone

when you extract to dds are compression to make the file size smaller:

use: BC3/dxt 5(for best skin quality)

(if you have too old dds plug in it might not work image could be ruined, i have tested v3.01 tested and works)

minimaps: generate minimaps

Open rfactor 2 and select the car you want to skin, click tuning, then you will see where the folder for the skins is located  click create dir.

save the skins in that folder.

make sure you have ALT in the name for the body skin at the end like this:

NGTR_03ALT

for windows skins its ALTWINDSHIELDIN and ALTWINDSHIELDOUT at the end:

NGTR_03WINDSHIELDIN

NGTR_03ALTWINDSHIELDOUT

the name chould not exceed 10 characters.

car window skins:YOU NEED PHOTOSHOP FOR WINDOWS,dds plug in is currently not supportign the correct compression format(DXT5         ARGB   8 bpp | interpolated alpha)

you can’t do windows in gimp, with the dds plugin with the relust you want witch is windows that look liek windwos.

i tried to use alpha exponent(DXT5) but it will not give the result you want,

currently the dds plug do not have DXT5         ARGB   8 bpp | interpolated alpha

so you wont get transparent windows but oyu wil lget white tinted windows instead.

for proper skins get photoschop.

how to make a alpha channel like the templates have:

flatten image

delete every thing on the channel named alpha1,

copy the flattened image to the channel named alpha1

paste it, go to layers agin and click on the pasted layer, right click on the layer and click Anchor layer.

————————-

how to make skins without templates:

run MAS2 its located in C:\Users\username\Documents\rFactor2\Support\Tools

click open

extract all files to a folder n

find the tga image that is grey,

open it in gimp,

add new layer,

start painting.

how to make the car glossy ,chrome,metallic,matte:

i dont know this so if you know how to it would be nice of you to share

———-

how its done in photoshop:

Start making durable headsets : headphoens,headsets-my opinion,suggestions (updated 11.05.2016)

you might call it long but i post this anyway(ignore typos  and if i repeat my self i will improve it when i can if needed)

PLEASE  make ALUMINIUM  headphones,headsets

some people say don’t buy gaming-headset they suck,some say buy high end headphones instead but the truth is that most of them suck too, durability wise they do, sound wise they don’t. Beyerdynamic DT or Beyerdynamic T  series is a good example, the black plastic part breaks.

for me its unacceptable that headsets are so weak.
i do not abuse my headsets, i am careful like most of us are but they should make headsets so strong you could trow them  or drop them on the floor without breaking in half,not that i would do that intentionally.
some high end headsets are more durable than cheap gamin headsets and get much better sound and are much more comfortable but,they got few breakpoints like aerodynamic( metal parts but plastic parts that will break 100% sure, but they sell spare parts that is silly just make it with aluminium.
i am no genius and i don’t have a engineering degree, but i know that most of the headsets/phones are poorly made. you can see pictures of broken headsets even expensive high end headsets.

i will not pay for expensive headsets,that have faults in the contruction.
most headsets do these days.
gaming headsets are the worst, cheaply made and overpriced,usually uncomfortable and fall easily off your head,or are have too much pressure on your head so it hurts.
one of the most know gaming gear brand is Logitech they make headsets with just plastic (excluding speakers and cable  and cessions of course)
like most brands, they are know brands,and some people buy new headsets every year,
if you buy a headset for 100 us dollars every year that is mutch cash straigh to the toilet.
brands make more cash this way, but some people buy new headsets from other rbands btu that jsut silly they will break too.
you could send them in for under warranty but is who wants to do that every single year,soem do that, i don’t want to do that.
that’s just silly.
headsets should be durable and last a life time.

a good headset should have:

no silly tuned speakers for explosions,no extra strange bass,
we want to hear it as its really sounding.many headset do that but not all.
Good microphone so you can record your self and hear its your voice and not sound like someone else. like on my cyborg headset.
can hear me clearly but cant hear its me.
detachable microphone
detachable cable

some examples of broken headsets:

my own headsets:
koss porta headsets worst headset i ever had but the first headset,
then i got creative HS-950 gaming headset total garbage too,
i then purchased a freq 7 headset from Madcatz, the headband broke in several pleases the rubber ripped apart, this is very common with gaming headsets.

Reviews of headsets I got: Here is a picture of my Logitech G430 headset,as you can it is garbage. I almost cut my hand,luckily it was just a small red dot.26069727180_d81d836c2c_bhttps://mtbboy1993.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/logitech-g430-review/

You can get spare parts for the Beyerdynamic headset,but this is still silly, the part should be mate of metal, if they absolutely want the headset to have this look, same goes for the small part that holds the swingarm to the ear-cup.

adidas escalate stability pro moderator [long term reveiw(1 season ]

When i tried them on i knew i would buy them so i got 2 pairs,
there is perfect amount of room inside the shoe i nthe front so even wide feet would fit,
but my toe comes over the inner sole,but its still confortable,
adidas pro moderator tecnology works pretty good, but the Asics GT-1000 2 GTX’s back end of the sole bends more and is softer,but it does nto mean its unconfortable,infact the shoe is quite confortable.
pros:
affordable price
very breathable
dampening sole
light
more space for your foot than asics shoes fro mteh same year

cons:

the white part of the of the shoe get wear out,they crack and small pits fall off, but your outer sole will wear out before this has has to worry you.
as usual as msot of thee running shoes or shoes in general whoes whould be wider for better support for the pinky toes.

here is a picture of my abused shoes,alot of riding on with straightlien defacto pedals.

10.11.2016 Updated review:Thrustmaster T500 RS

the wheel
if you got the money get a better wheel,but this is better than cheap wheels like csr or Porsche wheels

Frex Sim Steering 1080 deg

SimSteering System  have max 2304 degrees

accuforcesteering

pros:

  • the shaft is very flexible,
  • the wheel rims are very flexible,which is notisable.
  • The fan is very loud,and the summer heat will make turn olon even when the wheel is not in use,because the sumemr heat will over heat the wheelbase,it can get up to 28degrees where I live.
  • the clamp works well the wheel does not move or slide much, but its impossible to make it 100% secure without hard mounting the base.
  • strong ffb much stronger than the Fanatec CSR wheel,now i can play rfactor 2 with ffb that is not very weak like on the Fanatec csr wheel.
  • good dpad(directional pad)
  • can adjust the FFB in hte Driver software.
  • easy to clean the wheel rims.
  • there is possibility to mod this wheel, adding a real wheel of your choise,
  • the ability to ahve static or/and rotating pedals, is nice
  •  8 direction D-Pad
  • Playstation 3 compatible
  • not much play in the wheel

there is a adapter by Derek Spear http://www.derekspearedesigns.com/a guy on the iracing forum makes builds rearl wheels with pedals and every thing with the quickrelease sytem as o nthe standard t500rs so its easy to change to a rea lwheel if you want to,his name is Sam Maxwell.

YipZone makes nicee mods but he does not sell them. but you can look at this for ideas, if you want to do the same.

the amount of flex increased over time.

cons:

  • My wheel had is is faulty,the sensor only works to the right but not to the left, I have to turn more to the left to get full steerign range,I will have to send it back to thurstmaster,but as I am busy with Mountainbike related stuff. This was not my on the lsit of high priroitiy thigns to do. and my custommer supoport expericne was not good,the person replying me after they looked at the video said my wheel was working, even though it can be clearly seen in the video I sent them that it was not.
  • no real life quick release
  • no support for techometer
  • to add custom wheels you buy a 3dprinted copy of the screw on peace and add the wheel on it, mod the wheel base to fit a real life quick release.
  • The stock gt wheel was almost impossible to take off b, but afther many tries i did it.
    but got it off. This might be just with my wheel.
  • wheel chaft is flexing
  • the GT rim & ferrari addon rim is flexing
  • static pedal shifters ahve play,they rock invards and outwards
  • materials used are nto the best, liek plastic, the the quick release ifs made of abs but if you unscrew  the screw too many time i guess it would be worn out and u wheel will get loose.
  • very loud fan
  • no option to buy the wheel base only, then buy all the wheels you want or need,so you could buy which ever pedalset you want,
  • big base unit, i think its too hight and too long and wide,
  • no real quick release,woudl be nice iwht real car quick release.
  • rubber pads under the whheel base slide off.
  • wheel rim get scrached  easely
  • the paint on the red metal senter wears off

the pedals

pros:

  • the pedals are made of metall, so they are very strong and heavy
  • stiff brake


cons:

  • no loadcell
  • the clutch pedals feels the same as the accelerator pedal. This is because you can flip the pedals and run them in f1 style or rally style.
  • not stand alone with usb

concusion:

am i satesfied? No

woudl I  recommend this wheel? No

this is mass produced equipment, with alot of custommer having issues with it,.

Get direct drive servro instead,I know it cost considerably more,but I am tired of cheap plastic junk.

I have not tried accuforce or leaobodnar or frex but they will not wear fast liek all the common consumer,department store,electronics store wheels you can buy.

in my honest opinion all the entry mid range wheels are junk., specially fanatec csr, and logitech wheels, and madcatz.

what a wheel sim wheel needs is :

servo motor, real rim real quick release

at least 1080 degrees rotation

static pedals pedals on the wheel

the Ferrari 458 challenge repliuca wheel add addon

 pros

  • easy to acsess the screws on the back because of 1 hole on each shifter pedal .
  •   8 direction D-Pad
  • cons:
    the replica is not accurate
  • as flexible as the Gt rim
  • this wheel is not 100% scale replica
  • the 2 yellow buttons that are on the real wheel on the both sides are missing.
    wrong size
  • wheel rim get scrached  easely
  • same amount of flex as the gt wheel
  • price

if you want a smaller wheel or old f1 cars, then this is good for you or drive cars with rotating pedals

shimano EXPLORER LONG GLOVE- low quality gloves

Size: i purschased these in size Medium,they fit well,but shimano the Bontrager gloves i had were size large

cycling:

Ather some weeks the gloves show signs of use on the material used on the grey/pink part of the fingers

ather few months with riding

very breathable

the finger tip stripes will fall off afther some weeks of riding,they are pointless they do nto provide extra grip

the finger tips got worn out on theindex fingers

if you crash and fall on the asphalt the the synthethic leather can ripp little bit,if its a big rash they will proobably be ruined, it depends how hard  you hit the ground.

the thumb part changed color from black to brown on my pair i use for riding.

in october they were totally worn out. stitches broke on the fingers.

the gloves could use soem more padding

simracing:

i have 2 pairs of this glove. they don’t look that mutch used .

if you are a drifter they will be worn out as fast as on a mountainbike.

PROS

  •  comfortable
  • breathable

cons 

not durable

the shapes on the finers do nto give you extra grip

the touch fasteners straps wornout afther few months,

no tourch screen support on the finger tips

conclusion

i can’t recomend these gloves

2015 Mavic Notch trail helmet long term review

2015 Mavic Notch helmet with 2015 adidas pinner gogles

pros:

  • the price , for $110 you get a decent helmet
  • the Weight : 310 grams (M)
  • good ventilation
  • ERGO HOLD SL retention system mall and confortable                               http://www.mavic.com/helmets/ergo-hold-sl-retention-system
  • the adjsutment knob feels nicee easy to use grips well.
  • the cussions are thicker than on most helmets i ahev seen,this makes it a confortable helmet,(unleass you wear some headwear)
  • sun guard that aclutaly is the right size,of course if you need more you need glasses anyway if the sun is so low.
  • adjustment mechanism is confortable nto liek the met crossover’s helmet where it hurts to have it on.
  • the clamps for the side straps clamps trong
  • the helmet comes in 4 colors matte blue matte black,matte white,matte yellow
  • good ventilation

cons:

  • visor is too short(Its useless when riding in sundown.
  • no visor adjsutment
  • only 3 adjsutment hole
  • If you are are careless when you take off the helmet the rear palstic straps might go out of the triple adjustment slots.
  • when i wear a buff o nmy head, the helmet will sit bit higher so the adjustment mechanism will be bit too high, witch is unconfortable. but i need to ignore that its unconfortable, when i ride in -6 degrees celsius, i need to wear some ehadwear. so thsi helmet need better adjustment.

17.11.2015 I noticed this part that is gued to the helmet loosened.

IMG_20151117_105713.jpg

I think mavic did a good job with the comfort and ventilation.

 

 

a great review i found written by Francis Cebedo,

mtbr.com wrote a review and they the helmets did nto fit them as well as on my head.

”a medium size is too small but a large was too big as we got shell contact on the upper back of the skull.”

read more at http://reviews.mtbr.com/review-mavic-notch-helmet 

as always very good reviews and videos.

Bike-Tec Mario Sykkelbukse Herre anmeldelse

jeg har denne buksen i størrelse medium,men

denne buksen passer best for folk med stor bakdel.

denne buksen er for løs bake for meg,buksa er for stor i livet,strikken er ikek stram, så buksa sklir,men hvis du er stor bak er ikke dette et problem,resulterer til at bakre chamois henger ned,,

men har du sy saker hjemme kan du fike det.

gummi strikken på beina på buksa er ikke så behagelig,men du får merker  ha den på en stund.

pris 399,-

buksen kan kjøpes her:

Review Adidas ADIZERO TEMPO L short term

http://www.adidas.com/Eyewear/content/vn/products/10332/adizero-tempo-L

for me they are a perfect fit i use size small,

I have been using these for about a  half yea, i have not experienced any issues with these glasses.

I have even been wearing these under my Adidas Pinner goggles the very sunny and low sun light rides., it was still quite comfortable.

 

pros:

  • so comfortable i cant feel them.
  • the shape of the glasses fits my head well its tight into the forehead so flies and other insects and dirt don’t get in my eyes,but for mud protection when mountainbiking you will need goggles of course
  • TRi.FIT™, Quick-Release Hinge™
    The 3 level height adjustment adapts by 8º
  • Quick-Release Hinge™ : if you drop them they the hinges will fall off that way they will not break
Cons:
  • if the fall on the ground the over-ear pieces can fall in to a crack you can’t get them out off.
  • the price

Asics GT-1000 2 GTX Gore-tex XCR shoes review

at first the shoes were pretty tight fit, compared to other shoes like Adidas running shoes,

but after use they got comfortable,

they are Gore-Tex shoes so they are wind proof and water proof.If you use those shoes make sure your rain pants are long or you will get water inside the shoes,

the gel damping technology works well.

i have been walking,running, and mountain-biking in these shoes,

the shoe grips well but having soft rubber sacrifices the durability,after some some riding  the outer-sole begin to wear,the pedal pins ripped the rubber apart.

pros

  • Grips well
  • confortable
  • Shock absorption: Gel in the heel
  • plate on the rear of the shoe make it stiff and easy to take on and off
  • the rear of the shoe is stiff soit’s easy to take the shoes on and off

cons:

  • price
  • red part on the top of the shoe near the shoe laces wear out
  • not for wide feet.
  • would be nice with wider front for people with wide feet,
  • my feet are average width,but my pinky-toe goes over the inner-sole little bit, but would be nice with wider shoe anyway,at the beginning the shoe felt too tight but got away after some days of use.
  • the outer-sole should be thicker and not wear as easily

These glasses look Like Limar, F60 (Picture below) & Endura Mullet(which comes in 6 colors)

men etui/futeral er ikke det samme,ikke innpakningen heller Jeg har brukt brillene i mer enn (husker ikek nøyaktig)2 år i varmt vær syklet i kalde og varme dager, ingen tind har knekt , det følger med et futeral med blrillepose, men det stemmer ikke,men den har 4 glass brilene sitter på min nase ok,men problemet at jeg får fluer somkrasjer i panna mi rett i øynene.men formen på panna har jo mye å si ,de kan kansje for deg og ikke meg.

 

det som ikke er bra

  • ikke Photocromatisk linse på gsport sin side stod det at det er det. men lenger ned sto det at det følger med 4 glass.
  • Den svarte lakken flasser av

IMG_20150805_194404

  •  gummi strømpa på brille armene faller av og limen smelter, gummien revner så brillene blir ekkle å ha på seg når dette skjer. jeg måtyte vaske vekk limen
  • 599,- prisen er for høy
  • bare et farge valg
  • bare en størrrelse

Den svarte lakken farler av, og smelte så man får svarte merker på huden. gummi strømpa på brille armene faller av limen smelter, det sklir av, gummien revener. så brillene blir ekle å ha på seg når dette skjer.

det som er bra

  • futteral/etui og brillepose
  • brille glassene er i en pose for å ungå riper.
    du får kjøpt disse brillene hos gsport, intersport eller på nett på

https://www.gsport.no Konklusjon jeg ambefaler ikke disse brillene http://www.gsport.no/produkt/214315/c4-sportsbrille-re-2-7 noen vil vite mer om c4 komponenter http://www.terrengsykkel.no/ubb/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1126977&page=2
