I should have known better. Bought a cheap rear light from Planet X and it switches itself off periodically. Buy cheap buy twice as they say

To be honest Dave, I didn't really need the pesky thing; I bulked up my order to avoid paying postage, thinking it might come in handy.  Anyway, testing it in the garage I was impressed with its brightness so I hung it on my second-best bike for an early morning blast round the lanes.  As I bounced over a road hump my pal behind shouted that the thing had gone out although when I clicked the switch it came alive again.

Back in the garage I switched it on then dropped it on the bench from the great height of four inches. Lo and behold it went out and will do so every time.  Can't trust it now so I may give it to someone I don't much like?

And yeah, I almost entirely agree about Lezyne stuff, it's pretty good.  Except one of my three lights from them has developed a broken mini-USB connector so I have to remove the battery to charge it.  Not a deal breaker but inconvenient.

Certainly are MR, incredibly powerful lights for little money. The freebie Haribos went down a treat too. I paid a visit to the Sigma Sports shop last year for the Drops Cycling Team launch, fabulous range of goodies too. If I wasn't already sorted for The Best Bike Money Can Buy....

Those lights I sent you back in my Sigma days still serving you well then Dave? :-) The whole Lezyne range of lights are worth a look, lots of different price points.

Not always MtB, my prices are very reasonable and nothing, little nothing is off the menu! For a fabulous set of lights check out the Lezynne Femto range, super powerful, hard wearing and excellent battery life.
