This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Went into the local Cycle Republic (Edinburgh) to get them to price match CRC and so I didnt have to wait for post. They told me the price was better £10. Went back later to get another at it was back to £30 but they gave me it for a tenner. The bar code says a tenner but the written code says £30. If your in a cycle republic/halfords store worth a try.

Yawn.

I wouldn't call you old fashioned. I'd say the point you try to make is blunted by the fact lights are unnecessary. Furthermore daylight running lights are neither ubiquitous nor legally required.

If you drive a car and can't see that cyclist in Broad daylight without him having a little light attached to him you should be handing in your license because your eyes don't work.

I've never had a car with daylight lights and they are not legally required. Cyclists that cycle at night without lights are total idiots with a death wish, but they aren't necessary or required during daylight.

DRLs have been legally required to be fitted at the front of all new EU cars and small vans since 2011



No legal requirement for cyclists, but they do make vehicles more visible, and it has been recommended for motorcyclists to ride with the headlight on during daytime for decades.

Sorry if I offended - it won’t be me that gets killed. But hey, cool - no need for lights.

Oh and as regards being a troll - Check the posts, comments and deals I have posted over the past 10++ years.
Oh and by the way, the reason I commented on a cycling deal is very simple - I had a super-fit 33 year old friend who cycled everywhere without lights. They found him dead in a ditch and no one knows what happened.

Suggesting £20 quid of lights isn’t exactly racist, bigoted or political...
Sorry for dragging this thread back on topic.
(Look at me Mods. I'm posting something about the topic, there's no need for your pettiness this time ).

How often in miles (or if you're pretentious, kilometres), should you service / replace your bottom bracket?
Only service when it sounds rough or do it every 2000 miles, for example?

Thanks
Excuse my ignorance but can someone tell me what a "bottom bracket" is please!

It's the bearing mount that your pedals fit onto. Pedals revolve on the bottom bracket.

There are different kinds. As with all bearings they will begin to feel rough and notchy when worn or infiltrated with foreign matter.

If it spins freely with little resistance or noise it'll be good to go.

Why on earth is it called a bottom bracket? I've always referred to it as a crank shaft sleeve.

I've no idea. But I've never heard it called a "crank shaft sleeve" and think you may be referring to the tube that the bottom bracket sits inside.

It's a well known fact that hi-vis, brightly coloured clothing makes you practically invisible in broad daylight.

Combined with the fact that drivers are generally certified blind before being handed a license, it makes perfect sense to me that a tiny, blinking LED would be the difference between life and death at midday on a Sunday.

You ignore all of these naysayers - Keep on campaigning for DRL's on road bikes, it's the only real means of protection on a bright, sunny day!

Looks like it harks back to steel bikes en.wikipedia.org/wik…ket
Why is he dressed in BLACK?. I have been cycling for fifty odd years and wear a hi-vis just to beseen. I drive cars, lorries and buses for a living. Alot of riders dont help themselves by not using lights reflectors etc. You can insist on your RIGHTS if you spell RITES. At this time of year we have low Sun conditions so drivers are wearing shades of some sort then we drive through an avenue of trees and can see less. I dont want to kill or be killed.

I am not campaigning at all - I don’t ride a bike anymore and if people have a death wish then that’s fine with me. My conscience is clear. Horse-water-drink

Sorry about your mate.

On the point of daytime lights, I do disagree though. For cars, they're definitely beneficial, but that's because they distinguish a car that's live from one that's powered down. Especially as a cyclist, that's massively useful - parked cars don't always indicate before pulling out, so if I can see the DRLs switching on or powered up, then I know that that's a car which might do something soon, and to be especially wary of it.

For bikes though, I find DRLs a hindrance. When I'm riding down cycle paths, I don't gain anything from seeing a light on a bike coming towards me. There's no extra visual data to take from the scene. Often, there's even less because of it - some cyclists have this crazy idea that super-bright (and often slow-flashing lights) are somehow of their benefit, and really, they just make them a visual irritant, which makes me look away from them.

The main thing I wish cyclists would do during daytime hours is to wear bright reflective gear. I can see a yellow high-viz in my rearview from a mile away.

If you get a noise in the cranks or side to side play in the cranks. Lifetime will depend on if you have done a lot if cycling in the rain. Weight of rider also comes into it on mountain bikes. Jet washes are also bad. The forums suggest at least 3k but I've generally had a lot more even on my commuting bike.

It's force through the crankset, hence the weight for mountain bikers. If you pedal gently they will last longer, if you race them hard they die quickly IME.
