    LED Rechargeable Bike Lights. Battery Hibernation Over Summer.

    I've just unclipped my LED rechargeable headlights as I don't need them at the moment and won't need them for another month or two. What is the best way to protect the batteries? Do I run them flat before popping them in the cupboard or do I charge them to full? They have been very reliable...

    Bike Lights

    Apologies if this has already been covered - I have searched this forum but I cannot see a recent post. As the nights draw in and trying to get time to ride in-between work shortens I'm in the market for a front light for either my road or mountain bike. I appreciate the more I spend the...

    Anyone upgraded Vintage Bike lights to LED bulbs?

    Old fork-mounted bike lights revived

    Fitted lights & bike reflectors... How 'legal' are we all really?

    In light of recent 'discussions' regarding the legality of BS approved/non approved lights, light colours, reflectors, etc. I am genuinely interested in the number of forum users that are truly 'road legal' when they are riding. I myself fall into the non BS approved lights, and no reflectors...

    Hope Technology Ltd

    I bought a Hope Vision 1 front light about four years ago. It never let me down, but a couple of months ago I over-tightened the cam bar fixing clamp and split the plastic slot. Entirely my fault for being in a hurry. I phoned Hope and said that I wanted to buy a replacement. No it wasn't under...
