Purchased for a friend who is back riding after work with friends on city streets & bike trails. Ease of operation was paramount and the Master Blaster has that in spades. It also mounts easily under the top tube to the bottom bracket. There is a convenient Velcro strap included if you think you need it. She is an interior designer so appearance and construction were a concern. The neutral colors blend/contrast well with her dark blue frame and it appears to be built to last a couple of decades. To sum up this pump does its job very well and looks good too. Even better when you can find it on special at WBW.
This was the first time I ordered this type of chain lube and I immediately became a fan. This lube is much thinner than the other chain lube I used previously (White Lightning Clean Ride) and seems to be much more effective in improving shifting and reducing chain noise. This has become my go-to and I will be buying again soon.
Pros: Has a smaller than usual head for getting into tight places, torque level is easy to specify and read, price includes a case with enough allen / torx bits to cover most of your bike which needs a torque wrench of this size.
Cons: The head does not feature a quick release to release the bits - you just have to yank them off which ends up being a pain if you switch bits often, the torque level adjustment dial has a cheap, plastic feel - I worry about it's longevity, the torque wrench click doesn't feature as obvious of an audible or tactile click as other adjustable torque wrenches I've used.
Compared to similar (cheaper / generic) torque wrenches, there isn't much benefit to paying a premium for the PRO version, other than (maybe?) getting a product that hopefully passed tighter quality control and is calibrated accurately.
I've tried a few different lubricants for my chains over the years, all of which worked fairly well. However, I have found T-9 to be the best one for my use, which consists of road riding for fun and for commuting. I don't encounter all that much dirt and gravel along my routes, but I still find that my chains can accumulate a lot of gunk quickly. What makes T-9 more effective is that it doesn't seem to attract dirt nearly as much and my chains stay running smoothly. As my headline suggests, I'm familiar with some of Boeing's other product offerings, and I always find them to be carefully engineered and the best of their kind. Enthusiastically recommended.
