" Nothing feels better than cycle on a bike with a clean well lubed chainset. I had completely forgotten that I had orderd this so took a while before it was needed. I have used other products....Teflon this dry lube that. And to be fair they have been ok. This product is far better though because. It feels more substanstial when it goes on and sticks to the chain nicely. You can clearly see the green hue of it and the long nozzle stops it clogging like the finish line stuff does. Did not appreciate how much it irritates me when the nozzle clogs up and you squeeze and the stuff goes every where. Well that does not happen with this. Really smooth. Will use it again. "

" The light is extremeley bright, but the spread is so tight that at night on a road you would not have enough notice of a pot hole before you were in it. Its like a glorified laser pointer. Brilliant but too narrow a beam to be any use as a single light. I use it to walk the dog. Also the bracket is too small to fit racing handlebars. There is a strap to fit it on your head but you look a right numpty and it is heavy on your head. "
Pros: Attractive
Cons: Expensive, Poor Fit

" I love this light. It gives off a very distinctive light that can be seen from a very long distance very, very clearly. As the light comes in a tube. it can be seen from 270 degree angle making it vivisble not just from behind but also from side roads.
the batterys have lasted 12 hours so far and show no sign of fading. Really happy with this. My only tip is to get the twin pack. I attatch one to my back and one to the rear stay on the bike. "

The Water Soluble De-Greaser quickly and safely eliminates built-up oil, grease and grime on metal, plastic, rubber and seals. The biodegradable formula means that after use it can be quickly rinsed away with water to leave your greasy bike parts clean.

Great wheels and another thing

" I ordered these wheels on Monday and Tuesday my old wheels bust a spoke Wednesday I chased the order as I had a meeting on Sunday. The wiggle boys came through and Friday morning they arrived.
I took these out for a test ride Saturday and like others have said the responsiveness is noticeable. They accelerate quickly.
Now a reality check. Once up to speed an aero wheel will match the top speed, but it does take more effort on hills. On a flat the aero wheels can hold the speed better.
BUT don't despair... The aero wheel is more susceptible to cross winds at high speeds so I used to bottle it and reach for the brakes all the time. Therefore Aero wheels were wasted on me in the real world unless on a flat track. These wheels did not suffer once from cross winds so I did not touch the brakes and because of this they are faster. So if you can handle aero and don't touch your brakes on the steep downhill winds then fair play you probably don't need these. But for me, they are so stable I am going to marry 'em....
Finally the event on Sunday was the Strathaven 50, I won it in a course record. Finally finally, the guy who came second had the same wheels!! "

Muc-Off have now added Nano technology to their award winning cleaning formula. So why is Muc-Off with Nano better? Because the Nano sized particles contained in our revolutionary formula will remove dirt and grime with even less effort!

How does brightness/spread compare to say, a NiteRider MiNewt X2?

I'm after a good headlight for trails, and this looks like a bargain compared to the NiteRider gear. Is that just because it's in a single unit and doesn't include batteries? I'm not too fussed about run time or weight, so don't mind not having the Lithium-ion batteries.
see my review the beam is very bright but very narrow spread.
