Op really I wasn't being nasty! I was merely being helpful to others! …Op really I wasn't being nasty! I was merely being helpful to others! Hopefully you will not put another rubbish deal up with no real knowledge of the product!However if you wish to do so in the near future, I'll be more than happy to give you some more of my mind (even though its like talking to a toddler with toddler IQ replies'!Final thought regarding the product, as stated earlier these are 'to be seen lights' not 'to see', any potential customer would surely be much better off with a high visibility vest for a similar price! (Experienced cyclist and driver)



No, you were being nasty. OP has posted a deal, down from £6 to £2 for a set of rear and front lights and other cycle accessories. You then accuse the OP of having a limited IQ as apparently this deal is not of a sufficient 'quality' for you and should not be allowed on here.

I mean you even criticise the OP for posting a pun of 'wheely'. I assume that went over your head?

Fantastically though, you accuse the OP of having a limited IQ while displaying a fantastic range of basic spelling mistakes. Karma is a wonderful thing.

This site is littered with Gearbest tat. If you want to rant, why not focus on that instead?

Oh and by the way, no lights after dark is against the law, try explaining your high-vis vest to your copper when he pulls you over.

Bore off !

Looks cheap.... also looks nasty!! Wouldn't say they were for 'to see lights'... but to 'be seen'...

also wouldn't risk my life on a cheap quality pair of lights!
As a driver and a cyclist, I hate when I see (or hardly see) people on their bikes with a set of rubbish lights.... I mean come on won't kill to get a pair of decent lights! ..may kill for not having any decent ones though!

I completely agree. But these satisfy the legal requirement. Maybe you should lobby to get the law changed?

Worth buying just to throw at the cyclist with no lights and wearing black from head to foot that you just managed to avoid killing last night.

But make sure you take the batteries out first

Come on Lighten up some on here!

Worth checking out.

Cheap LED lights are often much better than expensive ones were only a few years ago.

I bought an LED headlight from the £1 shop recently and it is much brighter than the Petzl one I bought in about 2007 for £30.

You really do have to be prepared for an onslaught on here sometimes!

Great deal voted hot. Ideal additional present for anyone receiving a new bike for Christmas. I doubt there will be a quality issue, even the poundland lights can be quite impressive nowadays. So much better than the old filament bulb lights that some still use and wired cycle computers even cheap ones often work more reliably than expensive wireless ones.

I doubt that they satisfy the legal requirement (BS**** etc.), but probably better than some that do!

Is your life or your child's life worth more than £2?
Personally, at this time of year, I run three separate rear lights and either two or three front lights on my commute but even as backups, I wouldn't touch these with a bargepole.

What is your basis for writing that? How much experience do you have with these actual lights? Modern light emitting diodes are really impressive even on quite cheap lights. Many of these lights generate good light with decent battery runtime, more so than many older models from a few years ago.

Went to B&M tonight and all the cycling stuff had disappeared from its usual place.

The assistant checked with the manager to see if it had been relocated and found out that B&M have stopped doing cycling stuff altogether.

Pity, I have got some cheap and good stuff there over the years including lights, reflective gear and most recently a good track pump, a good mini pump and a puncture outfit for only £2.99.

While a light is better than no-light, I've seen (or rather not seen) some horrendously dim lights in use on bikes. If you're not cycling under ideal road lighting it's better to get something that'll at least light the road ahead of you. I don't mean those 9000 lumen searchlights, but 600-1000lm aimed down at the road so as not to blind people around you. If it lights the road other people will undoubtedly be able to see it.

Probably won't last more than 2-3 weeks before falling apart when you ride over a bump, BUT, for that price...
