    My wife has just arrived home and handed me a combined light set and cycle computer which she picked up at Lidl. Anyone tried one of these?

    I've a mate who bought one of their computers last year... he loves it. I've used their lights, not so good. They're not very strong, physically or in terms of brightness. OK for backup if all else fails

    I can't find it on the link, but do you mean that they are sold as a package or that the light and computer is one integrated unit!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  5. Integrated Keith... great value for a start although the light output might not measure up to some on the market nowadays. For bimbling around at very modest speed - no problem, and a nice way for riders to gain an interest in cycling 'toys' :biggrin:

    PS the link does not work - lidl are pretty quick on their changeovers!

    They've got loads of them in the Lidl in Hastings. Some other good stuff too. I just bought a stand-up trackside type pump with a pressure gauge built in for £2.99. It works too!!
