hot, not just on price. You'd be mad not to make yourself as bright as possible on a bike - I look on with disbelief when I see people riding around in dark/poorly lit conditions with no lights and dark clothing: stupid

Last night about 10pm 2 serious riders were out (geared up) and one had no main light on.....he suprised me when i was crossing the road as he would have hit me, I called him a pillock, they are quick to complain when they get hit by something with an engine.

Voted hot so i can see them coming.

Heat added! I can use this when I'm either cycling or running in the night. Thanks!

good deal

Really good deal - ordered two. Many thanks

Go via ]topcashback.co.uk for 5% discount & they have a discount code for a further 10% [SIZE=2]PBK10[/SIZE]

grabbed 2, cheers

Safety is always voted hot

Just fyi, i saw some neon safety jackets being sold at tesco a while back for £1 in the tesco "£1 aisle". I don't know whether these are still being sold but worth keeping an eye out for em.

I think I'll get one of these, thanks. Also can anyone recommend a decent value windchill jacket, just for everday use on the road, nothing too professional needed, just it gets pretty chilly in the winter when the wind gets up, budget of less than £40 say. cheers.

Great buy, Cheers.

I'm always surprised more people don't wear helmets.

Pound shops do vests for a £1 (surprisingly) and Home Bargains but these look better quality.

My kids got some free ones last year (3m streetwise) which they handed out at primary school...

Hot! Ordered one and got a PBK buff too now its cold - £9.96 for both delivered with the PBK10 code.

Great find OP.

Not only at night, but early morning as well, drives me crackers when it would be the motorist that is prosecuted for wiping someone out!

Doubt they would be anywhere near the quality of these!

Good deal, but Poundland sells a hi viz jacket for, er, £1. (Edit: didn't see previous post, but can confirm it.)

heat and rep added,hail! hail!

Thanks for this. Bought one as a spare.
Also got the smart rear LED light and a couple of pairs of the socks on offer.

Judging by the picture I would say the Poundland ones are much better!

I'm always surprised more people don't wear helmets.

If you do some research you might be surprised again then, because there is very little evidence indeed that helmets do much good at all. Few cycling accidents involve hitting your head, and above a certain speed a cycling helmet won't do much good anyway. Moreover, there's a theory that wearing helmets could make cyclists more reckless because they feel safer, and motorists more reckless towards cyclists because they think they are better protected.

By the way, I do wear a helmet. It just needs pointing out that their advantages are marginal.

PS Australia made helmets compulsory. Stupid move: the loss of the health benefits of cycling due to people not doing it because they don't have a helmet far outweigh the risks of not wearing one.

!00% correct :thumbsup:

For the record, I do wear a helmet also. I always go by the saying "You never need a helmet until you NEED a helmet"

Plus if its good enough for Armstrong, Cavendish and Wiggins, its good enough for me :-D

Ordered thanks a lot OP

I have a montane velo, made of pertex, very very breathable and with merino layer under its warm as toast (and breathable). About £30-40 depending where you find a deal. Made of mini ripstop pertex, durable, cut is excellent for cycling position, well made. That's what i recommend (p.s. the standard Montane featherlight is not cut as close, not as good for cycling - get the Velo). Fairly shower resistant too until washed. Its also only about 100g and packs to size of an apple.

P.S. thanks OP - ordered two of these high vis!

Most people don't realise that helmets are designed and tested to prevent injury at about 12mph, equivalent to falling off a stationary bike. Some tests have been carried that show that drivers give less room when overtaking cyclists wearing helmets. It was also shown that drivers also give men less room that women! Personally I wear a helmet, since, regardless of what speed you are doing, scraping your head on tarmac is not a good thing. Same reason that I wear cycling gloves also.

Hot - Just ordered 2

Nice, thanks

According to RoSPA: "Around half of the cyclists who go to hospital following an accident have head injuries."
But of course, nobody has any stats on those accidents that aren't reported...

And? That says nothing about how many of those injuries may have been prevented or lessenned had a helmet been worn. So it means very little.

well I've just ordered one for my H, Thank you

I think it's common sense that an injury will be lessened with a helmet.
