just got one of these for my road bike.
really lightweight, but, also surprisingly comfortable and well made
why would i need anything else? only bike snobs looking for a big name brand would go elsewhere
I recommend this product!

just got one of these for my backpack in case i get stuck somewhere and it starts raining.
great design; it may be black over all, but there's enough reflective parts for all motorists to see you at night
the sizing comes up a little small, i had to buy the next size up. if your wearing something a bit thick under this you might have to go two sizes up
I recommend this product!

I brought these after my other set of lights where always getting knocked about with the daily use of riding my bike.
these don’t get in the way one bit.
They are perfect for riding on lit city streets where you only need to be seen by the traffic rather than to see where your going

because the two sides of this are joined together with a peace of rubber in the middle your bottles are going to have a hard time coming out when you hit the rough terrain.

as you would expect from the manufacturer the power of this little keyring torch is excellent, and very light weight so not to way-down your pocket. the on/off button is easily located so your not fumbling around for ages trying to switch it on.
great purchase!

brought one of these today for my TV in my study; its a great size to hide behind your TV and doesn't get in the way one bit. connected it through my Blu-Ray player not through the TV's audio outs [don't have any]
the bass is very good for such small item; highly recommended

these have come with all of my new bikes over the years and they are a much needed part of your bike. although not as strong as a cable tie these will not nic your hands while your handling up your bike, plus they make your bike look far 'cleaner' aesthetically

What is the cost of a new wheel?

As the roads are not always suitable for bikes, I tend to find the likelihood of deforming the wheel to be quite high in practical use. What would be the cost of renewing a whole back wheel (and front wheel for that matter)?

you will need a pannier rack which is 'disk specific' as a normal one will not go around the disk brakes
