" This light is really tidy compared to similar priced competition. the internal battery holder feels a bit flimsy but then it's not meant to do much.The rest of the product is like a diamond: hard and bright. I was a bit bothered at first as the first time I tried to use it it woudln't turn on. I cleaned the contacts and since then it's been shining bright. I've not once had to turn it up above the minimum setting. "
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

 Granit X Plus 54 30cm D Lock With USH Bracket
Granit X Plus 54 30cm D Lock With USH Bracket
Twice the winner of What Mountain Bike lock reviews, the Granit X-Plus 54 borrows many of the features of it's mega tough brother, the Granit Extreme 59. The parabolic 13mm square section shackle is produced from hardened steel, making it massively resistant to cropping and twisting. It is securely ...

" I have no doubt this Abus lock will take any kind of abuse. Buy this and you'rebuying high quality, easy to use, peace of mind (albeit its a few kilos to cart around with you).
I went for the long lock, but should've stayed with standard length and a longer cable to go with it. "
Pros: Durable, Rugged, High Quality

" These bib shorts have transformed my cycling experience. I just can't believe how comfortable these Giordana shorts are. Believe all the reviews! they fit snugly, and they're not for short bodied people, and whilst looking sleeker than many others I've tried, it's like sitting on a sofa. If I'd have known what they'd be like, I wouldn't have thought twice about paying the price.
Before I bought these, I'd been considering changing my saddle to ease the pain. But friends suggested I try changing my shorts first. I tried and returned some baggy cycling shorts which were meant to be good for touring - but to be honest they feel hot and cumbersome compared to lycra, and you seem to be buying extra cloth not extra comfort.
If you're concerned about sizing, check the Giordana website, as it tells you all you want to know. "
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: a bit short in the body

The Rolls-Royce of mudguards; they are virtually unbreakable and very elegant. The stainless steel v-shaped stays make for easy fitting and quick release secu-clips are far safer than standard fixings.

" These mudguards are well designed, lightweight, and easy(ish) to fit. I use a cross bike for touring, and had no problem fitting them,with all the bits there that you'd need. I had to bend the struts to get round the disk brakes and this hasn't compromised them at all. the only problem I had was with the use of these little black plastic caps used to make the ends of the struts look pretty. I decided in the end I wasn't vain enought to spend the extra time needed to take the bits on and off the bike to saw the struts precisely to the length needed to fit these plastic ends. Maybe when life's a little less busy I'll get round to it. I did kick myself for buying at full price about a week before they went on sale, as I fail to understand why mudguards are so expensive. "

Size

This looks quite big. Does anybody know its diameter at the back and its lenght. I found nothing on the Hope website.

Thanks
From memory, it's about 10*4cm. It takes almost no room on the handlebars.
