AirZound Bike Horn

Delta Airzound Bike Horn

 Thought of sharing some thoughts on things i find awesome so now i start with AirZound.
Many biblicists don't even know it exists, i only found it by chance while surfing around Amazon but i easily saw it's potential in a heavy-messy traffic like the one in Bucharest in particular and Romania in general. It's easy to set up, eco-friendly, loud like nothing else on the market. "Cons": u need to get used to it - pressing it gently enough not to scare pedestrians and the biggest bummer: it tends to wake up killer instincts in types of driver that find offensive a bike horn that's louder than most car horns.

It comes in many color variations and claims are about different versions  but i couldn't find the actual difference between these so called versions.

No need to make a strong point on how useful this lil bugger is since there are a lot of infos out there already, just google it.

Lafuma Danko-2


Since winter was coming and my old ArcticFox gloves were pretty trashed from last season's hard wear, i gave it a try with these initially impressive Lafuma Danko-2 which i found at Ascent store in Romania for about 39$.

I liked the fact that they were long and could really seal the arm when finding urself digging in the snow. What bugged me at first was the "Silicone touchpad on index finger" as they call it. It's a little round rubberish thing sticking out on the index finger that me for one can't find any real use.

Last weekend I had the chance to put them to test. It wasn't much of a trip but i go the chance to see what they're made of, sort2say.

Conclusion: don't like them that much. Fingers have a strip of material that shreds instantly, the touchpad-feature is more annoying than i anticipated, my big thumb doesn't fit like it's supposed to. I still like they're long though :D but not so sure i'd buy them again.

The inevitable happened.. created my blog

Chose blogger because it said it's the fastest to configure: I needed 5 minutes to figure out my google username and password combination, 15 minutes to find a blog address simple and easy to remember. Not so bad after all.

So.. what about this blog? Well, it's because I don't have time for a full website, it's because I sometimes feel the need to put out stuff like reviews, my projects in electronics, my work as a photographer and who knows what other "relevant content".

But that's about it for now, content soon to come.

have fun
