" This stuff is sticky. Everything within a metre radius will get sticky. Make sure you know how to put a tub on before you use it - I watched three tutorial videos and still made a right mess. Good stuff, but one tube is a bit tight if you're using the three coats method.
Note the authentic grease under my thumbnail - never trust a reviewer with clean nails! "
Pros: High Quality
Cons: tube should be slightly bigger.

" The Spanner is useless and the cloth is ... a cloth, but the proofide is second to none. If you have a leather saddle you owe it this. Don't be stingy with it - it maintains the life and depth of the leather, and is a really satisfying job to boot! "
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Expensive

" Nice lightweight fabric on top to cool hands, but hard-wearing mesh and pads on the palms provide good grip and cushioning.
Bit hard to get off but worth it for the snug fit you get.
Not the cheapest option but still good value.
"
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

" Ask yourself how often will you use this tool? If like me you'll only use it a couple of times then this fits the bill - not a perfect fit and takes a bit of work to get on and off, but feels like it will last. "
Pros: Great Value
Cons: Poor Fit

 Vision 1 LED Front Light 2012
Vision 1 LED Front Light 2012
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!
 

When will these be back in stock?

I ordered mine 2 1/2 weeks ago when the stock showed as '2-7 days' it then changed to 'Mid-October', despite this it came today (6th october) Moral of the story: Stock is not always accurately displayed so just order it now and you will be at the front of the queue when new stock arrives (usually sooner than stated).

Following on from the other question, is this light good enough to light up unlit back roads enough to ride at decent speed?

Decide for yourself - Based on the photos it should be fine for road use, but i'd advise against XC.
