    I just got a second hand Lezyne Super Drive, the guy had it for 2 years and said the battery would last at least half an hour, perhaps more. Has anyone replaced their Lezyne Lithium-ion, rechargeable 18650 batteries with cheaper ones, can you recommend any?

    Does anyone have or has tried out the Genesis 2014 Day One Disc? I'm wondering if it's a little too heavy for a single speeder?

    I took a ride on the 2015 flyer yesterday (from soho bikes on Berwick street, neat shop, also genesis creators will be doing a talk at the beginning of October). That's a nippy little bike. I think I prefer it to the Langster... The langster just seemed soulless, where as the flyer feels like it has some character.

    The new flyer does have mudguard mounts... but like the langster, the clearances are miniscule... so I might have a look at the Day One, unfortunately the day one disc with carbon fork comes in a little over budget for me.

    Has anyone picked up a 2014 Ridgeback Flight 04, its a good looking bike and at 799 in the sales its a tempting price. I wish it were just a single speed bike with drop bars though rather than an internal hubbed one.

    Any thoughts on it?

    So my single speeder of 2 years was stolen this week. I'm really quite upset because it was a good looking bike, and i can't seem to find many similarly specced bikes still for sale.

    Luckily it seems my insurance has come through and should be sorting me out with a new one, however I wonder if anyone else has bought a new SS for around the £600 mark that they can suggest. I was mainly looking for something nice and light, hopefully with a carbon fork and with drop bars. I'm not too worried about the breaks, though would prefer front and back.

    it seems that the specialized langster 2015 is the only one that fits my description at the moment, but was wondering if i have overlooked anything.

    Cheers

    My trek 4th District single-speed bicycle was stolen yesterday between 8.30am and 11.30am from a communal area in a block of flats in Chiswick. I've let the police and local bike shops know. I doubt I'll ever see it again, but would be amazing if I got it back.

    This is my lost beauty:
