    Running lights with a dynamo

    My front hub was on its last legs (sic) and I found a half decent dynamo hub for what I think was a more than fair price. Having built it into a wheel I now need some lights and my eye has fallen on the box of semi-redundant battery LED lights that are just waiting for a new lease of life...

    Commuter Lights

    I know nothing about London commuting but #3 daughter is now commuting in south London and needs some decent lights. Christmas is coming and I thought I'd treat her. Only a mile or so each way, so doesn't need to have big battery capacity but easy to mount and remove from bike, easy to charge...

    Do TTLs have the same status in law as fixed ones? Will police prosecute TTL jumping?

    Lights for a Brompton

    I know nothing about Bromptons, but somebody not a million miles away is taking delivery of one in the next six weeks or so. It will be used mainly for pootling about London, the odd ride in the country, but no midnight dashes through rocks and stumps and other daft stuff requiring Hermann...

    Who turns out lights in your house?

    For all the crap we take about ruining 'their' future, I have to say that in our house there's only one person who turns off unnecessary lights. No spoilers, but da yoot it ain't...

    QNT Front Lights Relocation

    In anticipation of a fairing arriving in the next few days I needed to relocate my front lights. Had a bit of free time this morning so I manufactured a couple of brackets from some old bits of aluminium tube I had lying around the workshop and an old M10 bolt. They're designed to attach to the...

    Soldering dynamo wiring to LED lights?

    After 3 years of reliable service, the exposed wiring that leads from my front dynamo lamp to the rear (B+M Secula) LED light became brittle and snapped in two. The exposed wiring is really thin copper, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did! Road vibrations have killed it at last. I had to...

    Generic LED lights - what connector?

    I have one of those LED lights from China (mounted low enough so as not to melt windscreens) but the cable on the battery is faulty, so I want to chop out the damaged section of cable because it's far too long anyway. However, I can't find the correct socket anywhere. I could change the plug...

    With a bag in the back on a rack, where do I put the lights? Got two on the rack bracket but one rattles. Should i put it on the bag? The rack has thin horizontal struts. The bag blocks the seat and seat tube. I'll take a pic

    Rear lights that can be mounted on seatstays and angled the way you want them.

    Hello all, Do any of you have favourite rear lights like this? I would like rear lights for my seatstays that I can angle, rather than having them point up in the air! Thanks :)

    Lights for city + occasional dark track

    Picking up my new bike this week, need to sort out lights. For the rears I'm thinking the cateye mini as it seems to be compatible with the brompton to fit in the gap under the seat. OK choice or are there others that can also attach there? (Or should I consider attaching/replacing the...
