    For a lot of people, it is the BIKE, judging from the number of them that are ridden once or twice but then end up in a shed and are never ridden again! :laugh:

    Genuine question. Why are spoke reflector's pointless? Every new bike I have purchased come pre-fitted?

    Surely different for everybody. For me helmet (because I won't ride a bike WITH one), others would say earphones but I won't ride a bike WITHOUT them.

    I had a bar mounted water cannon when I was a kid until it broke. The crashes oh man the crashes.

    I want one now though.

    It's aesthetics, bike snobs don't like them, but they seem quite harmless to me:okay:.
    Not sure if I have still have them or not, they were on one bike when I got it.

  13. Next time you're out see how many bikes still have them fitted. An item so unwanted is pretty pointless.

    A bit pointless if you only ride in daylight.
