" this is the saddle i wanted more than anything when i uses to mtb back in the 90's.
never got one.
just bought this re-issue for my new titanium road steed as the perfect finishing touch and i'm very happy.
it has a good width and just the right amount of padding. the ti rails are where this saddle wins hands down though, they flex with the bumps and provide a really comfy ride.
the price is excellent considering they cost this much 20 years ago.
get one. "

" this tyre is a joke.
if it was named something else i might be less harsh.
the product description is misleading.
the tyre will square off in 1/2 days of skidding.
i was through to the base layer in 5 days.
not good.
stay away. "
Cons: Low Quality, Wears Out Easily, simply not good enough

" what a frame.
i picked this up on a midweek discount with a great price.
i am very happy with it, i built it straight up and it rides great.
it is whippy, fast, dead fun and looks great.
not the lightest but you don't notice the weight and you know it's built well, albeit in taiwan.
worth a pop. "

" superb leg warmers.
nice and toasty without being to hot and a real comfy fit.
the leg grippers work fine whilst on the bike with no slipping and the fleece lining is dead nice against your legs.
price is excellent for what you get.
worn them through the last few days of freezing weather and they've been just perfect for the cold.

" This light is super bright. I use it on the flashing mode along side a rearlight on constant and it is very visible and attention grabbing.
It is also well lit from the sides and the whole unit glows red.
Battery life seems fine.
It has it flaws, the casing isn't the strongest but is fine and should wear well. The clamp is also a screw fitting so you need a screwdriver to fit it but once it's in place why do you really need to remove the clamp.
The light also has a clip built in which is good for attaching the light to clothing or a bag.
I bought my lady one as a cheap set and bought one for myself as it really is good.
Rated bit of kit. "
Pros: Adjustable, Great Value

" Bought these lights for the lady as a cheap set of lights to roll back from the pub with. Have to say i'm super impressed by them.
Not as easy to mount as some main brand lights but simple nonetheless. Detaching the lights from the mounts is very easy but there not going to fall off whilst riding.
The rear light is especially bright and the front is just as good.

A must-have for urban night riding. The new TL-LD610 is slimmer and brighter than its predecessor, with five LEDs and three modes that maximize your visibility.

 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!
 

is this the new updated version?

are these lights the new version that have the new cycle that hope talk about here?
(low to high on the power.)
