A decent little set of bicycle LED lights for front and rear with two flash patterns (strobe and flash) and constant on. The front one is bright white (not green as some older ones were). Supplied complete with 2xCR2032 batteries in each lamp (the batteries alone would cost more than this!). Easy fitting and removal to handlebars/seat stem, etc. with built-in rubber strap on each light. Was £4 per set, now reduced to an amazing £0.97p!

Various other bicycle accessory bargains instore too.

Sorry, I just can't fgure out how to post a photo on this listing.

Worth scanning them as they may not have changed the shelf label.

They might be cheap, but I don't think I would like to rely on a little 97p LED being the only thing preventing a lorry from trying to share my bike's bit of road space in the dark.

Some products aren't worth buying on the cheap.

The more lights you have on your bike, the better.


Of course you shouldn't rely on a set of 97p lights alone, but as an addition to your main set this is a great bargain.

Understand where you're coming from but you shouldn't assume that reducing them to 97p reduced their light output too!

Of course they shouldn't be used alone (not legal anyway) but they're actually pretty good and ideal to supplement something to BS standards. Use several and if they get nicked it's not a lot to lose!

So to summarise these arguments, you shouldn't rely on them, they're not legal, and you would need another legal set anyway. Oh, you can also use several so that they can fill up your available handlebar and seatpost space, and still not be legal or sufficient.

But they're cheap, so that's okay.

Is it cycling which gives you people 'attitude' or an attitude which makes you cycle? There really does seem to be an unpleasant arrogance amongst some obsessive 'enthusiast' cyclists which makes them want to write the rules for everyone else.

Every simple bike item which appears on here gets shot at by the bikeistas. You're an enthusiast, an expert (at least in your own mind) so it's probably not for you - move on. Buy your high tech light sets which cost as much as some people's bikes, spray yourself in Lycra and go and jump some traffic lights.

I'd rather see a couple of these on all the unlit bikes out there than have them with no lights at all.

Sorry to deprive you of your prejudices, but if you really must know my rear light is something similar to this: ]Rear and the front is a flasher that is smaller than this: ]front

I commute to work on my 10 year old mountain bike, don't wear lycra to do so, teach kids cycling proficiency, and have a set of lights that might just save my life rather than give me a false sense of security.

And an Avatar which says it all?

I don't think we're actually disagreeing (much). Check with your kids how many have 'proper' lights (£20 and up at a guess?) - the rest would be better off spending 97p on a pair of these (or staying at home) than being invisible after dark.
