    So the guy testing the bike doesn't want to chop the steerer, what's the problem?

    If beam shape is important to you, scroll to the bottom of here, they have a pretty useful comparison tool.

    You can see the mounting holes on the picture, just near the top of the seat stays.

    I have one in W11. Might be just a bare board + USB lead (i.e. no box) as it's been used for a project. Would do for just a one off data transfer though. This is assuming its a 2.5" disk?

    I saw a kid wearing one of the helmets in Chiswick the other day, very large area of light and the helmet didn't look too bulky either. It wasn't very bright, but large area > bright. I reckon in conjunction with a flashing light on the bike, this is a great solution for kids / people sitting upright where helmet weight isn't so noticeable. I think they should make a rear only version of the helmet as well, as the front light isn't that useful.

    Made an appointment for an officer to come and take a statement on thursday, so will give them all relevant information including email address of hippy and of the couple who also stopped to help out.

    Yep, was me! All reported to plod, not roadsafe as it was the passenger, not the driver who got out and hit me. Overall a very strange encounter, thanks for stopping and helping a brother out!

    Plenty bright enough for commuting and i used it for london-brighton overnight aswell. Battery lasted the whole way on 'pulsed' mode. Would need a bit more (maybe the 700) for proper pace night riding on your own.

    I've got the 300. Use it on my commute, battery last well, micro usb under a little rubber grommet on the bottom, even survived falling off my bike at about 20mph (my modified attachment failed). Only thing to complain about is the cateye "flextight" bracket.
