" I have these pedals on all 3 of my bikes. They are easy to set up and use and last well. The pedals on my mountain bike are scuffed and rusty, but have done thousands of miles on and off road and still work fine. "
Pros: Durable, Great Value

" The panniers are easy to fit and remove, though the fixed top mounts were slightly awkward on my rack. The locking tag is simple but effective and the panniers are definitely waterproof.
Capacity is ample for my commute. Light mounts are ready for the winter and the reflective lettering front and back is effective. They do not include a shoulder strap for carrying, though clips to fit one are present.
"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Versatile

This fantastic little light may just be the best addition to your night riding you can make as it a single high powered LED that pushes out 240 lumens on max power!

" Having checked out the lights at Cycle09 I made the most of Wiggle's 20% off special price and bought this Vision 1 to replace my old Cateye RC230 system.
I find it at least as bright as the 20W Cateye system in a much more compact unit. It lights up road signs 100 yards ahead and is brilliant on the unlit cycle paths on my extended commute home. I have not tested its endurance yet - it does warn that it cuts out with no low battery warning - but I have run it for well over an hour on full power on the 2500mah rechargeable batteries I bought separately to use with this light with no problems.
I would certainly not want to use it as a helmet light - too heavy - and it is certainly dazzlingly bright to onlookers, but as a bar-mounted light it is all I need to see my way home on unlit roads and tracks.
"
Pros: Good Fit, Great Value

Pockets

Are there any internal / external pockets for easy access to tools / inner tubes etc.?
Best answer
There is an internal pocket across the back of each pannier. Useful for sunglasses, snack bars, multitools etc. There are no external pockets.

Does this come with a QR bracket or not?

One of the reviews says no bracket - the bike mag review says it's excellent!
Yes it does come with an easy to use QR bracket. This is fixed to the light - not the bar, so when you remove the light, the bracket comes off too. This makes the light a little bulkier to carry around, but it comes with a lanyard which I have fastened to the loop on the back of the light, making it easy to loop around my wrist leaving my hand free to carry my helmet.
