Come to Norths, climb the hill. Smile after, if not during.

    Your wife is already a legend (for putting up with your bike library)

    but respect is due

    Probably @Mikey5000 or @sasmon cast offs...

    Good to hear - I would be interested to hear how you've got on with it. I actually got a new Moon light from Father Christmas, lucky for me. But it would be cool to hear a more long-term review of that one all the same

    Cubelite II arrived yesterday.


    1. small, and very bright (100-300) - bright enough to annoy people in
      the office
    2. auto-feature is actually a little blinding if you pop
      something on the shelf I keep it on at home
      3 attachment options
      (clip/saddle/and strap)
    3. battery indicator - this really is quite a
      simple and good idea


    1. I'm not convinced about the under the seat clip attachment, or I might need to mount it the other way around
    2. requires removing the strap if you used this function; I suspect
      those with fat fingers might break the strap/clip on attachment.

    I think for £21 this is a very good and easy to use light. Versatile; if you have only one use case (i.e for a bag/or under the saddle)

    Can we make @amey unsafe and now supposed safe bike electric please? I feel it an experiment the forum needs to see.

    All the way to the dentist's chair

    It was a pleasure to be blinded by your light.

    367km give or take. Suspect I will get to 400+ but no more

    As nobody has added to this, ninja edit:

    Finished on 453k. (NYE at 1300). More than happy with that. I know what I could have done to get there and had some fun meeting old and new friends in the process

    Amey, plan is to ride there, (see my mate and new kid for a quick bite), then train back

    They don't do aloo gobi in Kent so I can't bring you back any

    200k (120k/10k/70k) in the bank. I'm not sure I will get a full chance to do it, but if anyone is tempted by a ride towards Cambridge (Fri) or North Kent towards Whitstable (Sunday) then please drop me a pm.

    Riding yesterday was lovely.

    Thank you Mr Marx, bought one. I'm sure it it will take a few weeks to arrive, but looks very good at that reduced price.

    If anyone wants a smartbike voucher code (one time), please PM me. Preference giving to MrMarx...
