Bike Dryers - top tip
|Subject: Bike Dryers - top tip Tue Sep 18, 2012 7:39 am|| |
Since buying a cruiser I now see the point of having a biker dryer. So I had a look around for said item. I've seen them advertised in various magazines and ended up at www.bikedryers.co.uk but was shocked to see the one I wanted was £199. 'Not paying that' thinks I so undertook an extensive search of the internet and found a great tip on another forum pointing me in the direction of dog grooming equipment. A further search revealed that I could buy the same spec machine through Aquatix 2u Ltd on Amazon.co.uk for £84.99. The spec is the same (4th blower with variable flow and heated air) just not labelled as a bike dryer !

Dave uses a leaf blower. You could probably use a hairdryer with an extension plug if you want it even cheaper
all its got to do is blow air. If you know anybody who talks a lot of hot air they work quite well too
