Argos Bicycle Cover
Advantages: Great fir, like velcro the straps, waterproof
Disadvantages: Material is very thin
My garden shed was the dumping ground until last year when i need to empty and declutter so i could store my new p.a system in there for work as the new system took up even more space than my last one that lived in the house inside a cupboard. Although there is still room for my bike along with garden maintainer equipment it mean my girls bikes and scooters have to be left outside in the garden all the time now due to the lack of space. As the bikes and scooters were going to be left out exposed to the winter weather we had to buy some plastic sheets to wrap and cover the bikes as much as possible.
After a few unsuccessful tries with tar pollen we invested in a cheaper bike cover from argos.
The argos bicycle cover cost only £5.99 and from the argos value range.
Argos bicycle cover comes in a clear plastic packet folded up with some basic information and instructions. It is easy to remove the cover from the packaging, i left mine sitting over the sofa over night in the warmth as when removed from the packaging it was badly creased all over making it slightly difficult to get the cover to sit or stay in a position because it wanted to fold itself back up.
Argos bicycle cover is a light blue colour but its thin and transparent making it see through. Its made from pvc and is water proof. The cover is not flat like a sheet its taken in at each end with elastic like a fitted bed sheet is. It has velcro straps attached to the elastic ends, this is to give a tighter fit around the bikes and the velcro straps can be secured around the tyres of a bike. This is a great idea because it does not flap around like the tar pollen did in the wind.
Fitting the cover over the girls two bikes and scooter was easy. I grouped the bikes and scooters together and leaning them against my garden fence, i placed the cover over the top of the bikes at both ends and secured the velcro straps around the fence. The covers are made for adult sized bikes and can even be used with motor bikes or mopeds. The bike cover will take two adult sized bikes at once.
Because the sheet covered the bikes being small child sized bikes the sheet hits the ground in but have also put the same sheet over an adults bike and it still gives good coverage coming down past the tyres.
The bike cover measures around 40 inches in height and 74 inches wide.
The bike cover is not great quality its very thin but fits the bikes well. I have been using this cover for 7 months now and even over the hard winter weather the cover is still standing strong. The girls bikes are rust free and no sun damage or discolouring at all. Very happy with the results and will continue to use the bike cover.
I think its great for the price and well worth every penny, this is probably one of the best value products iv ever bought.
Argos bicycle cover i highly recommend you!
Summary: Works very well and seems very durable
