Agreed, some of those budget Kree lights are very good, and at the prices are practically disposable!

Have to say though that I still like my old BLT's with the battery in the bottle cage; I also have a BLT helmet lamp, and a fancy little lamp that goes on the handlebar, which takes AA batteries in a stick-like holder that goes under the top tube and gives about 4 hours very bright output per charge 8)

One of these in fact...

...blimey! That's a bargain!

Yeah, drunk, no lights, pulling out in front of traffic. Sure we'd all be very understanding if that was a car driver not a cyclist and we wonder why cyclists get a bad name sometimes.

the scary thought for me is she probably rode home too.
i just hope she had a basket for her wine.
second thought sounds like she may have a wine rack. :lol:

I totally agree with this in the daylight.

Leffe is £2 a 750ml bottle at Tesco? I might have to go in, despite the shocking customer service I got in there today.

Given lights are so cheap, why are people still so keen to steal them at the slightest opportunity?

Because the average law abiding citizen is a thieving git.
