Stumbled across this store and can't believe their prices. Buyer reviews so easy to judge quality before buying. Free worldwide shipping....!

I bought these lights

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1255

and these bar mounts

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8274

(and a load of other gadgets i don't strictly need!)

CHEAPPPPP!

The flashlights had the awful habit of flickering on and off if you shook it


So would be ideal for mounting on a bike?

Welcome to Retrobike. Do you work for that site, profit from it or profit from the goods sold there in any way? Of the 5 posts you've made, 3 point us to "awesome deals" on there.

Tell me not to be cynical :D

its called astroturfing, subtle (in theory) advertising creating fake grass roots interest for a site or product. You get them all the time on large forums.

Youll possibly even find that reub is just an advertising bot.

Tbh its worth banning for.

Astroturfing :lol:

I think we should let Reubs ongoing post quality prove or disprove my cynicism. Hard to tell from 5 posts. I've noticed in recent months theres a lot more pure sellers and "marketers" on here now.

Hi all, sorry if that was advertising. Bit new to this. I'm not an astroturfing cyber bot!?! Maybe i can prove it by telling you I was given the link to this site from David over on 'anothercyclingforum' who i have just bought a frame from here http://www.anothercyclingforum.com/inde ... ic=51046.0 He's just sent the frame to me in Cardiff.

I have no connection with Deal Extreme. TBH I'm an eco-hypocrite for buying things from the other side of the world. Just wanted to share a good deal - thanks for not banning me before i got a chance to explain!
