As a teacher looking after the kids of essential workers (mainly NHS staff) I'm still cycling to work one day (teaching online from home the rest of the time). The roads are quieter but I'm seeing more and more controversy online about whether people should be out on bikes so fully expect even more aggressive (mis)behaviour from drivers as a result.

My old Fly6v has started misbehaving recently so decided it was time to upgrade to the newer model rather than risk getting run off the road and having no footage. I decided to get cameras on my bike after being deliberately targeted by an angry motorist because I had the audacity to cycle in the bike lane past a queue of stationary traffic. I've been delighted with the quality of my old Fy6v (which can probably be fixed by reinstalling the firmware, in which case I'll give it to my kids), Fly12ce and Cycliq's customer service.

For those that cant afford this there is a Aldi knock of version that goes for around £20. I have had it for 3 years without fault. This seems to have a proper mount though the alid and orignal fly both have velcro which isnt the best.

I had one of those (it's a knock off of the original Fly6) - cost me £40 or £50 and worked well for about a year before developing a fault (daily commuting in rainy Glasgow is tough on gear!). Aldi gave me a full refund - all their stuff is covered by a two year warranty. Unfortunately they don't seem to make them anymore.
Enough about the light, what's the bike like?
On a more serious note as a car drivers it's brilliant to see how bright and noticeably the newer lights are.

More than happy to drone on about my belt-drive BMC to anyone who'll listen...

I remember cycling in the 80s when bike lights were massive, weighed a ton, gave out slightly more light than a candle and cost a fortune in batteries. When I started commuting to Uni on unlit country roads I upgraded to a dynamo that ran on the tyre tread (not the crappy sidewall type); it was a revelation! My lights were bright enough to see where I was going and when a car came at me without dipping their lights I could flick it upwards to return the favour.

Modern bike lights are tiny, can be cheap (my back up lights were 80p each from Planet X) and are bright enough to be used as daylight running lights. It's disappointing when I see someone cycling with a pathetic dim glow or no lights at all.

Not at all, in the rain and dark and you have a cyclist with dark clothes with dim lights , you often see them when you are a few metres away.
I would make it a regulation that bike lights emit a certain amount of light.

Sounds like its a bargain.

Some dashcam users have swapped from using velcro mounts to using 3m dual lock tape, which has interlocking mushroom heads. As it doesn't have loops, it is said to reduce camera shake.

You'll need a time machine.

All the ones I had also used to flicker a lot, and often needed a wack on their side to get them to light up because all the vibration would wreck the electrode in the battery. I often upgraded my lights, either because the new ones took cheaper batteries, were more compact, or easier to remove from the bicycle, but they were all pretty bad.

I presume this is the Gen1? Cycliq are selling the Gen2. Not a massive change.

The differences:
Improved weatherproofing: redesign of the SD card and charging port flap, improving water ingression performance and reinforcing overall IP56 dust and water ingression rating.

• Hardware durability: the reconfiguration of internal componentry to improve durability and battery performance.

• Manufacturing improvements: post-production testing has been ramped up including individual pressure and vacuum testing on every product that comes off the production line.
Automatic firmware updates: as well as a raft of stability and usability based firmware improvements, the Fly6 CE Gen2 is now fully compatible with our auto-updater software; users just plug in their device to their desktop computer when connected to Wi-Fi and the auto-updater detects if the user is running the most up to date firmware, and updates automatically.

https://www.quesh.co.uk/newsite/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/79004-UG-HD-Camera-Bike-Light-ver1.1.pdfI suspect it will be in again in the winter ( not much need for them in the summer ) I have seen then the last 3-4 years.


Thanks
Code has expired but price has dropped to £128 - so £2 more than when first posted.
Many thanks op for the deal and even bigger thanks for continuing to work during the crisis.
If it wasn't for you and your fellow teachers how many thousands of key workers would have been lost off the front line of this battle against Corvid-19.

During normal times I too cycled to work every day. On the bike I have two front lights, two rear lights and front and back cameras. All lights on even during daytime. Touch wood no accident other than somebody aggressively forcing me off the road. Having visible cameras has definitely reduced incidents but defensive riding is what keeps me safest. I.e. predict a car pulling out in front of me etc.

This just isn't true. You can't get hold of them andthey were never £20

They were £40 in Sept 2017 when I bought mine. They sold out very quickly but there were a few reports of people finding old stock a few weeks later reduced to £20 (and a very few found them reduced to £15).
It had a faulty motion sensor which meant it switched off after 15 minutes (both camera and light). This was later fixed with a firmware update which bypassed the motion sensor (and also removed the Crash Mode so it didn't automatically save footage in the event of an accident).
I haven't seen them being sold since. I guess they might come back at some point - it wasn't in their cycling stuff last month and the new range that was due on April 19th has been postponed.
Most owners seem to have found that they died eventually (people who opened them up found the circuitry had corroded). Mine lasted about 6 months - but Aldi gave me my money back under warranty so I was happy enough to get a winter out of it for nothing. I bought a Fly6v for £50 instead, which I'm now upgrading having seen how much better the video quality is on the newer models.
