Today i thought I would try a new route in order to commute to work. The direct route involves a very busy fast moving A road which i don't particularly like. 16 miles each way in dark rush hour traffic really isn't fun and always feel vulnerable along it.
After studying a few options, the...
Thought this might help others who have the same problem - riding at night with Tongsheng TSDZ2 VLCD5 display, and using the VLCD5 to control their wired-in front and rear lights.
Recently my long serving Smart Lunar R1s have started falling off and one has been lost. Before I just get a like for like, are there any newer better options people are aware of. Much rather have AAAs as can pop fresh charged ones in rather than find a dead light when I need to set off to work.
I have a set of Busch & Miller dynamo lights on a new Genesis Tour de Fer touring bike.
Only been out on the bike once so far with the lights on and the rear light didn’t turn off when I switched the front off which then drained the power
I’m new to dynamo lights so is this the norm or do I...
On Friday i ended up buying a new front light from Halfords. I got my hands on the Bike Hut 1600 lumen. I know its totally overkill for road use, but this winter I'm planning on doing more evening MTB riding were the trails around me are pitch black and littered with obstacles to navigate...
Had this languishing for a while but now definitely surplus to requirements. Full working order (but will need some cable joining). This model is currently retailing for £80 on SJS so i would like £40 inc p&p. PM if interested.
It's getting to the time of year where I try and remember where the charger is for my lights. I have a perfectly good front light, and a perfectly good charger (I did find it in the end) and a perfectly good battery. However, the cable on the battery is rubbish - I've cut the plug off twice and...

My CGR has two rear lights mounted on the seat-stays
'Up To Press', they're just normal seat-pin mounts, but they're not vertical
One has a piece of foam under it, to realign to a certain extent
As seen here;
Does anyone know of any 'adaptors' that can be used?
Or has anyone made them...
Hello guys, as per title, I've had the mad idea of getting into cycling with the aim of doing some light touring next year.
I hope you guys can help me tackle this challenge and give me some good advice on the training aspect.
So, my current situation in short:
- haven't been on a bike for...
As my shoulder is as fragile as an egg lately and for the forseeable future, my alu Scott roadie is going to be history fairly soon.
My other bike is the venerable Trek 800 Sport, currently in 8-speed 11-34 guise. The CB Uracco mtb is to be rebuilt as an 8-speed for my younger son...
I may be preaching to the choir but I don't see how anyone could actually prefer to ride a heavy, clunky mtb over a razor-like <17.5lb road bike? I road my rusty old mtb down my street today and compared to my HouPlus road bike (which I know is far from comparatively light) its like riding a...
Need a rear light for Wiggy #2, the Chartres.
1) Must be rack mounted and fit the light mount on a Topeak rack.
2) Must be suitable as a main light on unlit roads.
3) Needs to be cheap enough that I can leave it on the bike without the danger of it being nicked.
4) Would prefer battery...
Have spentthe past few days off and on stripping and re-building the Robinson.
Now sporting Ultegra Di2 in a 1X11 format (11-32 cassette with a 44t Hope chainring);also changed the Supernova front light for a B&M iQ-X with a brighter B&M rack mount rear.
Not actually ridden it yet! And still...
As I have now gone Dyno I have for sale my front light as above.

All parts are as new in original packaging.
Cateye Rapid Mini rear light complete with mount and usb cable (cable not pictured and not Cateye brand). Bought last summer and perfect working order. Really bright rear light and good side visibility. Only selling as I got some nice Exposure lights and this is now surplus to requirements...
Cateye Rapid 3 front and rear light set. About a year old but have been on the shopping bike so haven’t seen much use at all. These run on AA batteries which last ages. Perfect working order and very bright in flash mode. Complete with brackets (the straps have been trimmed but will fit normal...
Looking for something for mostly road light touring (rear panniers, comfortable, not bothered about speed) but also capable of moderate off road. Don't plan on lots of fast technical riding.
Lots of eyelets for guards and racks.
Any recommendations for a rear light/reflector combo that will attach to the pannier rack in place of the reflector (see photos)? Preferably ones that will clip on/off and have USB charging.
(UK shops only)

Are these old Wonderlight front and rear light mounts any use to anyone ? If so yours for the postage cost or can be collected from Wellingborough NN8 post code.
Can't see any makers name on them , but have been told they are wonderlight .
I am planning to do the through the night "ride to the sun" event in June next year.
I'd like to have some good rechargeable lights to take me through the event, but I'm a bit overwhelmed by information at the moment so would appreciate some advice.
I will likely be cycling from about 7pm...
So I commute on a mostly unlit bike path. Bridgewater way through Trafford. On this section I have my lezyne 400 on full blast and need it to see in front of me. Every few minutes there will be an oncoming bike. Had a couple of comments that it is too bright.
Trouble is the switch is not that...
