Maybe it is sad for British business that we are forced to seek bargains overseas, but that is the way of business, sad, but times change and with that undoubtedly the economic power centres.
If China stands to become an economic power, then good for them, for they are working hard at it, and with hope some of the most poorest of Chinese citizens might at some point be able to rise out of extreme poverty via providing the decadent west with what it desires so much at the cheapest price.
Chinese products, what I have bought from them I am very impressed with, ( I drive a Chinese mortorcycle ), and their attitude to customer service is second to none, something which I do find amiss sometimes with buying locally, where I have even detected an arrogance on behalf of the seller which has made me turn around and walk away.
But lights, I will be purchasing a couple of these when funds recover, red bezel to go with my red theme as a replacement for my lovely LedLenser Aviator, which is fantastic as a light, but it's not waterproof and that is a problem, as using it, I am wrecking it.
Although I do hope it does not happen, these Chinese lights are of a price that if they are left on the cycle, should they get stolen, it is not so hard on the pocket. The rear light I will always remove and pocket, for it is my faithfull eight year old transparent cateye single LED that takes expensive photo batteries.
My journey to college is through woods and down dark bridleways as well as road, about half and half, these lights, two of them one dipped near and one thrown out a bit further should do the job nicely.
Well done to the Chinese and well done to LGF for bringing this to me.
Oh, as regards to light brackets, I use the following ;
Three years now and it is still doing it's job, but as a safety feature, I loop my torch hand strap around the bars. But as a more secure function, and I have experimented, a self tapping screw through either side of the torch holder tightens things up a bit.
