    £3.95 for delivery of a 57kg item too...they can't be making any money on that o_O
     
  2. Delivery isn't calculated on a single item, a firm like that who probably deliver thousands of items today can even out the cost so everyone pretty much pays the same.

    Some companies do charge more for larger items usually because they don't post in high volume or have a contract with a delivery service that allows them to charge a set flat rate.

    It's great. Got my money's worth out of it for sure, and lent it to a few friends too...

    As someone correctly pointed out on the thread, it's this exact model just debadged. They didn't bother to reprint the instructions :)
