Front & Rear Multifunction 6 LED Bicycle Light Set £1 @ Poundworld

Found 23rd Sep 2015
With the dark mornings and early nights approaching, this is a cheap way of getting your bike ready, or for adding to some accessories if giving a bike this Christmas.

You get both a Front & Rear light in the set, plus a couple of adjustable brackets, which allow you to attach and detach the lights easily.Each light consists of 6 LEDS, and are multifunction, so each press gives static, strobe, flashing, random, 'Knight Rider' etc, and as you can hopefully tell from my picture, they're pretty bright.You can never be too visible riding a bicycle at night, and safety is all the more important, especially with so many idiots on the road texting and driving!

They also had a set of fluorescent arm bands and trouser clips which might be useful.

No, these ain't Cree lights, so not for the bike enthusiasts, but they do the job of keeping you seen, work well, and cost just £1 the set, so better this than none at all.I can't believe there are some parents letting their kids go out at night with no lights on their bikes whatsoever, at a £1 + batteries there's no excuse.

BTW, each light needs 2 AA batteries, funny enough they sell those as well.

Even though you can get these for a quid, you will still see idiots cycling on the road in the dark without any lights on.

Let natural selection take place. If they have no lights on run them over. It would be one less idiot taking op resource in the world...

My point exactly, and reason for posting the deal, at a £1 there's just no excuse not to have them.

the problem is these are useless, they will fail, they eat batteries and are not that bright to start with.

people get these and think that's fine, stick them on the bike and the thing breaks and especially with the rear light the rider probably doesn't know.

Do yourself a favour and get some decent lights, don't have to cost the earth, but more than £1!

pay a quid and they are not that bright for car drivers to see. ive see them on the road very poor. better pay a bit more and stay alive

Drivers ought to be more careful

Cyclists ( I'm one) should observe the highway code in regards to having lights and reflectors fitted when cycling in the dark.

Prior to finding these, I must admit I had some out of Poundland and they were rubbish, but actually these are pretty good, and certainly much brighter and more visible to drivers than the old Ever Ready cycle lights I had in the 70s and 80s, and back then they were the best.

...So if the lights have gotten better overall since then by using brighter LEDs, then drivers have obviously got much worse ...but then it's hard for some drivers to see cyclists when they're looking at their phones! oO
