All Bike Lights Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
Had it in my basket and it went OOS on checkout.
Sorry this product is currently out of stock
OOS for me.
Device name is Meilan X1 if that helps, doesn't seem like there's a website to go with it.
Any chance of a link to one of those, sounds interesting
If it's one that does that for the idiots that refuse to "dip" their headlights for a mere cyclist, I hope so!
That's mainly down to how it's angled. The average car puts out about 2000 lumens per lamp. Far brighter than most bike lights. This is 'only' 300lm albeit true lumens probably, not ebay ones!
Is that one blinds car drivers because some are way too bright
Still works over £30
Love this code, been using it for over a year, just been building a bike and have 6 orders over £30 outstanding using this code last week.
Anyone had any issues with the helmet? I dropped mine in the house on laminate flooring and there was a small dent where it had bent inwards
Do not buy those pannier bags, unless you're broke. They are awful. I'm sure Lidl could design something much better and charge £20-£30 for them given the number of stores they have. These things are made to look like expensive panniers like Ortleib but they're nothing like them and won't last long.
Is that the Nazi Wehrmacht cross on the front of those saddles? They look good value though but always worth checking ebay etc as stuff like lighting and workstands can be cheap on there.
I got the panniers bags last year in the sales at Lidl for £8 great no problem used for touring for few days and waterproof
It does have Presta, they’re not the most robust of things, had two break and as for the gauge, not the most accurate. It’s worth investing in a decent track pump, yes more expensive but will last you for years to come, Joe Blow is where it’s at. Basically I’d use Lidl one as a backup not main pump
Fair shout, wasn't aware of Westbrook tbh, and yeah I was aware of wiggle/CRC - wiggle bought out CRC about 18 months ago
Where as I agree with you, you’ve linked the 800 not 900
https://www.leisurelakesbikes.com/107478/products/exposure-strada-800-front-light-black.aspx?origin=pla&kwd=¤cy=GBP&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8KrH2dTA2QIVp7DtCh2rEwqlEAQYCSABEgJVz_D_BwE Cheaper in several other places. Why anyone would spend over £100 on a bike light is beyond me when the £20-30 Chinese dual led ones from Amazon have just as good light performance. They have the same Cree leds but perhaps not as well made but for that price difference you can go through a few.
And Wiggle and CRC are the same company ;)
Cheaper at a couple of other places, like Westbrook
There are a lot of good deals on there. £13.99 for the light in the OP (which I'm sticking with - I like the convenience of a single, spare light that will fit in a pocket and do either front or rear) but lots of other options for the same money or less. https://www.tredz.co.uk/blackburn/ppp/90/xsrt/priceasc
Blackburn lights are excellent quality very impressed with mine. Check out tredz they do a range of blackburns very cheap I got front and rear for around this price last week (battery not USB,but batteries are supplied with lights)
For occasional or short ride use in towns I prefer the small stretchy rubberised lights you just clip on. I've seen them in Lidl for a couple of quid a pair, or Tesco for about £4. 2 lithium cells in them, plenty bright enough to be seen and easy to remove when parked. I don't see the point in rechargable bike lights, it's not like the low power led ones get through loads of batteries, the battery will likely die in these within a couple of years making them useless, or if you use them very occasionally will more than likely be flat at the precise time you need to use them....
No code needed, delivery is free on orders over £9 at Chain Reaction Cycles. They're the same company as Wiggle, but Wiggle charge delivery if you're spending less than £12. Which is why I checked CRC before I ordered from Wiggle. Glad I did.
Bought two of these, both arrive and they are faulty.
All this talk about DOA and boom! I get a faulty one delivered. I have my suspicions the retailer new these were dead.
Ditch the car, cycle more!
1st batch already sent out from Kickstarter so they do exist lol but Looks like the next lot are ready for delivery in July. Might preorder mine next week.
ps. i posted this deal at the same time, for a £2 light https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ikea-jansjo-mini-usb-led-lamp-only-2-instore-ikea-2881831 they have both had 88 and 89 hot votes respectively, one is -26 the other over 200.. just shows how biased this site is to numptys seeing something at £2 being a bargain but an item that is £159 on multiple sites and reduced to £103 here is not a deal..
It's really quite easy to point these at the road. It's amazing just how much you think you can learn from someone just because they've bought a product you don't understand. If you think this person is somehow dangerous with a torch imagine how dangerous they'd be in a car?
A car headlight is 1800 lumens, these max out at a 1000. Yes it could be pointed in your eyes but plenty of cars have mis aligned headlights as well.
I will pass on that. From Hong Kong....
The torch is the same as this on gearbesthttps://www.gearbest.com/led-flashlights/pp_272526.html for £3.45 but 2.89 on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rechargeable-USB-CREE-LED-Light-Flashlight-Lamp-Mini-Torch-Pocket-Waterproof-NG/253361813969?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 You can get the red light for 99p on amazon and the mount for 29p(I just bought 3 of them). You'll have to wait 3 weeks rather than 24 hrs though! Mount: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00ADLUDSA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Rear light: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Waterproof-Light-Constant-Setting-Bicycle/dp/B01NCWMYQF/ref=sr_1_18?s=sports&ie=UTF8&qid=1516696462&sr=1-18&keywords=rear+light+bike&refinements=p_36:-200
so basically your £3.00 comment was a wild goose chase. good job i bought the one from your original post then eh !
I think the link is this: https://www.gearbest.com/bike-lights/pp_1235474.html but this is a little bit more expensive, the range is less, it can not be recharged and no batteries included
I would like a link too :)
Sold out, definately not a hukd
Only 3 left in stock, buy now to avoid disappointment
12 units left in stock, 6 sold yesterday. Expected them to be gone if I’m honest 131 hot votes clearly some people appreciate a discount, if it was a TV with the same saving it’sd be smoking, but it’s a Torch (party)
A few mates have banged on about them for years to me, I’d never pay £375 either . I was at ardrock last year and we had a good chat with a couple of the marketing/sales guys , it was obvious they didn’t need to push a sale, as good products sell themselves, a few mates got some ex demo, approx 45% off rrp, no deteristion on battery life whatsoever , after sales service is second to non and the products keep going , a friend has a 3-4 year old maxx daddy and it charges and runs pretty much the same as when new I sold a bike today, so thought I’d treat myself this weekend
Fair enough for not jumping down my throat, it’s just on the flip side I’ve spent quite a lot less and not had an issue at all, my solarstorm is a beast! I just can’t get my head around the cost of these, it’s a massive amount for a few leds and battery. I take on board the build quality and self contained unit though. If I get the chance, I’ll take a look though but even for me to take a sniff at buying it would have to be around £100
I actually quite like these. Especially the cylon LED mode. I think the lasers probably do add to the cycle's visibility but agree the mounting is a bit weak.
For me it's the angle. I've seen folk in the city with the equivalent of a good maglight on their bike pointed straight forward. Great! You'll see the brick wall ahead but not a pothole, and you'll blind everyone in the process even though your light isn't that bright.
I agree. As a regular cycle commuter and driver, some of these rear lights are so bright that the driver has to look away from you while approaching to overtake, how can that be safe?! I have a very bright front light for riding in dark country lanes, but I always switch it to a lower brightness mode when I get into street lights. I also have a small flashing helmet light, but I would never mount a bright light on there unless I was riding off road.
As you are proving YMMV - but in my experience with these there are certain points in my commute (specifically bends with parked cars) I feel I gain a few inches as drivers (deliberately or subconsciously) follow the lines taking a wider route. Agree on rechargeable usb's too but would say more the merrier (with contingency) although would also recommend a small helmet one too as having had the biggest impact when approaching side roads with cars parked up obscuring your visibility on cars wanting to pull out, they see you much sooner having a light above the roof line. Just no need to be too powerful on the roads.
There is one thing being seen but self preservation tells me that blinding vehicle coming towards me from either direction is also not the wisest of ideas. This light is only 100 lumens and is described as bright as F. How many of us see lights rated 3 to 5K lumens that really do not belong on the road but purely where they were designed to be used for night time trailing?
Being in the south west myself I've actually been to most of these stores. I travel fairly frequently around this area. Bought a fair few things from their stores. Great value. Simple stores without a lot of investment but pretty keen prices generally. If I need cheap stuff for bikes, lights, bottle cages and other bits and pieces it's worth checking ebay for stuff on auction from China with free postage. I've had sets of lights for 50p that I've seen in shops for £5-6 in a fancy box. Here's a link which will show you the current offers; https://www.ebay.co.uk/b/Cycling-Equipment/7294/bn_1669642?LH_Auction=1&LH_FS=1&LH_ItemCondition=3&LH_PrefLoc=2&_sop=1&_udhi=3 Obviously no good if you want stuff straight away it may take weeks or even a month plus to get to you but you can get items seriously cheap at times if no one else is interested in bidding. Obviously don't bid more than its worth. Look at completed auctions to see what the prices typically go for and use a free sniping site like gixen.
Thats annoying, I didnt spot these in mine when I was looking at the weekend, I could of saved a quid :) But a set of these for a quid with the batteries included is a steel (I was looking for the rear light pound land used to do that projected a red line on the road but they have stopped doing them)
Sorry but these look very similar to pound world ones?. (On closer look they are the same as the ones in my local pound world).
Should add I didnt think about the delivery charges as I just wandered into the shop to buy them
I found this for an updated manual and firmware. I've not actually tried updating yet, but will report back when I have. Edit === Firmware updated without problem and supposedly fixes a couple of known issues.
I have front and rear cameras for my daily work commute. Very effective footage when both views combined. Used when a coach came terrifyingly close when overtaking me. Sent it to bus company and they agreed and sent driver for re-training. I have also noticed that with the cameras I am involved in less 'incidents'. Suits me as I would rather have safer cycling than more footage.
Bought at full price, great light and camera, rubbish strap tho
If you do get one of these make sure you update the firmware, it makes it actually useable.
Either, although even with the main light off, there is a small little light
Bought a couple of jackets and tops in the same sale last year and Regatta has dived bombed in terms of quality. They used to make reasonable quality at a reasonable price, they're now making crap with an outrageous RRP. With 70% off its ok for walking the dog etc but ignore the RRP and avoid for outdoor activities as it will let you down.
Thank you Jacket ordered
I'd agree with this - bought some items in previous sale and quality very poor as well as dodgy sizing.
I have ordered walking sandles and trainers for long walks.
Check the prices on Amazon as I have found they are cheaper than when Regatta have a sale
Plenty of iterations of these sort of lights (e.g. these). I always assumed they were from the same factory so just got the cheapest. Only downside is they (mine at least) don't give you warning when they are nearly out of battery.
bought some similar recently from amazon about £10 i think and theyre great. so small but effective and can clip anywhere
Thought these were cuff links before I read the description (lol)
Good for helmet mounting?
Thanks OP, heat added
Just purchased 5 of the fleeces which I'll give out to homeless in my town. Thanks Op.
Daughter heading off to Iceland end of January-school trip, looking for warm waterproof jacket & trousers, would anyone recommend D2B products for there? Working off a tight budget, esp after buying Xmas.
I got this last time (arrived this week). More plastic than the rechargeable one and not as bright. Which is okay, for a standby light. The main problem is the irritating rattling it makes when riding, which comes from the sealed on/off button end. But at just 75p tho ....
This was expired yet oddly worked on the Mr Bean teddy bear I had left in the basket when that didn't work last time so I got that for £1.52 ! (For my baby grand-daughter)
Expired (didn't really need it anyway)
Coupon use exceeded when I tried.
Thanks for advice - I just saved mysef another £5 from this site
Mentioned 4x "powerful" in description. Must be really powerful then! To call 1/2 watt powerful? Powerful as a candle light!!! :)))))))
I bought these last time that they were on offer, and honestly, I can't recommend them. The fastening is a slightly elasticated rubber loop, that clips very tightly to the light on either side. You have to detach it from one side to fix it to your handlebar/seatpost and it takes a great deal of force to do so. It's very fiddly in cold weather with numb hands and is nigh on impossible in the dark! They aren't much brighter than the 70p 'frog lights' you can get off Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00FXO6MUA/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item and these ones are so much easier to get on and off
Thanks op ordered.
Good value at £4.99 but £20 is ridiculous!
Bought thanks (y)
