Yes!!! More Lights!!!!

Friday, September 27th, 2013

I know … Lights again … but let’s face it, if you’re going to be riding this time of year you need to be seen, especially in those last few minutes after sunset while you’re dashing for home.

Make sure they see you, right?

So we’ve just taken delivery of a ton of Knog Blinder rechargeable LED rear lights.

Minimalists will love the Blinder 1, just one very bright red LED which can be switched between several strobe patterns. Very small, yet very effective.

We also stock two versions of the Blinder 4, a 2×2 and a 1×4 pattern. Both utilise four very bright red LEDs and one of them or the other will fit on your seat-post to help make you super conspicuous.

Knogs are a little difficult to fit onto an aero frame/seat-post, but we’ve found the CatEye Rapid 1 has a fixing which securely fits on most aero sections. It also looks like HAL from 2001 from the back …

The Cateye is also rechargeable via a USB cable.

These rechargeable LED lights vary between $30 and $45 which makes them rather more expensive than an AA or AAA battery version, but they’re rated for 600+ recharges, which is a lot of Energizer bunnies compared to the cents it costs to charge these lights up again.

Cateye Lights

Monday, September 9th, 2013

The evenings are already drawing in and it won’t be too long before you need to think about your dark night – and early morning – lighting needs.

CatEye Nima - minimalist lighting on a budget

CatEye Nima – minimalist lighting on a budget

The first of this season’s CatEye range are in the store now.

With rear lights like the minimalist Nima – $14.99, budget Omni – $9.99 and rechargeable Rapid 1 – $29.99, there is no excuse not to be seen.

At the higher end we are again carrying the rechargeable Nano Shot +, 600 lumens, and three lighting modes including the effective HyperConstant pulsing pattern these lights give you probably the most bangs per buck of any road headlight.

As usual, we are also stocking the Knog range of rechargeable lights. Look out especially for the Knog Road for a truly effective front light.

At the premium end, we’re stocking Light & Motion. More news from L&M soon.

Shimano SPD-SL PD-R550 Pedal

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

The latest 2014 Shimano equipment is starting to come into the shop.

If you’re looking for a road pedal then the PD-R550 might just do.

The Shimano PD-R550 road pedal

  • with lightweight carbon filled composite body
  • extra-large cleat target for easier engagement
  • extra-wide platform for maximum efficient transfer of power
  • Durable stainless steel body plate reduces flex and pedal body wear
  • Wide bearing placement for stable, uniform load distribution

The release tension can also be adjusted to enable the pedals to disengage at a very light pressure, important if you have mobility issues or just want to feel you can get your feet on the ground with the easiest motion.
