" I've noted drivers second glance at these wheel lights, meaning they are being spotted. Tough to get on spokes, but then I've not had any fly off the spokes, once they are on, they are staying on!! Does the job, well priced, must for winter commuter in dark light. "

" Easy to fit, easy to use, easy to charge. You can't be missed with this light, as the evening closes on my ride home from work, I've seen this light reflect of street signs 100m up the road as it flashes. In the rush hour as I carefully filter the traffic, nearly every car is now moving to the side for me.
Expensive, but in this case you pay for what you get!

Pros: High Quality, Good Fit, super bright!, no need to any batteries.
Cons: pricey but consider the cost an investment!

" Before I had these wheels, I cycled from Rainworth (Nottinghamshire) to Linton (South Cambridge) at an average moving speed of 19mph.
With these wheels fitted since this ride I then went to Fakenahm (Norfolk) from Rainworth and my average moving speed was 21.5mph.
Enough said, wheels are like lightening!! "

" I recently cycled Nottingham to Cambridge. 113 miles in 6 hours. I had Porridge for breakfast and off I went. I made it to Cambridge on my SIS energy drinks and 2x of these bars without running out of energy. So that for me was good enough proof!

" I can't run, therefore I bought this for cycling as I've started doing some longer distances. I now use this on any ride above 60 miles/3 hours. I did my first 100+ mile ride 10 days ago, Mansfield to Cambridge in just over 6 hours, I ran out of liquids with 3 miles of my ride left (including 2x bottles on my bike). OK so a little cheat, I have an extra bottle of Lucazade in the back pack too, but I didn't run out. With a couple of cobs and a few energy bars I carried everything I needed, the bag fits snug and the best part is it sits really high up your back with means you don't get any pressure on the lower part of the back which I was getting from a rucksack, so comfort on a long ride greatly increased. This bag works for me!! "
Pros: Comfortable, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: pricey but unique in the market! so no complaint!

" I haven't tried any other fuel products yet, but I went for this as I know powders are messy from using protein recovery products, undissolved lumps are not pleasant!! This stuff though, providing you remember to buy a pump, couldn't be simpler!! Blackcurrant isn't over sweet (and I don't have a sweet tooth) and a few sips at a time is pleasant and refreshing. I have done a couple of 80+ mile rides since getting this product and carry two bottles with me to an isotonic formula, and I feel like I'm ending my rides with energy, enough left that once I'm home, I'm able to walk my dog. "
Pros: ridiculously easy to use!, tastes pleasant and refreshing
Cons: 3 month self life once opened if not used often.

" Before trying electrolites, after a ride I used to feel tired and lathargic with headaches for the evening, and taking on loads of water.
With SIS sports hydration tablets I have been doing 80+ mile rides using 2 - 3 500ml water bottles with a tablet in each, I get home and now walk the dog headache free to stretch my legs out.
These work!!! The tude is each to carry in a bag too. I will be buying more when I run out.
I use alongside a fuel drink too. "

Can this be charged while it is turned on?

Can this light be charged from a portable USB charger *while* the light is switched on? If I'm riding all night I need to be charging while I'm riding, as the top 2 modes won't last all night.
I think you would struggle to insert the usb socket due to the handle bar mount once it's clicked securely in place.

My question to you in return is, how often do you actually go riding all night?

I commute on a section of road for about 2 miles on my way home with no street lighting, on this section with clear glasses the second setting is bright enough for me to see enough of the road any any pot holes etc. On the full setting it's very good, as soon as I'm in an area that has street lighting again I return to hyper-constant mode.

Hi what is the maximum size the handlebar mount will expand to?

I am currently using 3T Zefiro aero handlebars with a P wing tri bar extension. This means my handlebars are not round but oval.

I just want to make sure the mount will fit before buying,

Thanks
Not sure, you could buy a spare fitting on it's own:

You'll get your answer for under a fiver, but other than that I would think it "might" be OK, can't say yes 100% for sure.

Can I purchase a 2nd handlebar mount for this.

This light will be predominanatly used by myself when commuting, but occasionally my husband may wish to use it and we were hoping it would be possible to have a mount on both bikes.
Best answer
Yes can be bought on Wiggle.

I did exactly the same for flicking between 2 bikes.

is it possible to buy a new battery and can u buy them in this country

No the battery isn't removable. Apparently good for several hundred charges though!

What I will say is don't be put off, this thing in the rush hour, light or dark, is ridiculously brilliant!! Everyone will notice you!!

Glad I bought it. Easy to fit and swap from bike to bike too!!

How does the buy one get one free work. If I order 1 tube of berry, do I get another tube of berry dispatched as well? Or do I order 2x, and I'll be charged for one?
You will only be able to order a single flavour, you will get 2 of that flavour at a 50% saving, so still worth it!

Do I have to buy the deal twice to get different flavours?

Yes you do, just as I did. However shelf life isn't a problem and they will last till you use them. Still a 50% saving!
