Goes great with leather handlebar tape, end plugged with Prosecco corks...

"After stretching an early issue with a KMC look-a-like, I decided to revert to Campy. Haven't had this issue before, but this time when first assembling with the dummy pin the roller pin misaligned and I couldn't assemble in the way that they recommend. Instead, I took more links out and did it the standard way.
One ride of 60 miles later, its still intact!"

"Works well, but a tad disappointed at the lack of hardness of the penetrating rod. Broke and re-made just a couple of chains and already showing signs of burring over.
A shame, as the adjustable anvil is a great idea and the whole thing works well.

ZERO is the new electrolyte drink from High5; it's virtually calorie free (1.4 cal per 100ml) and has a light refreshing taste.
 

Does it contain any artificial sweetners?

Yes. I suggest you have a look for Nuun.

The White Eye plugs into your Joystick and will double your light output to 480 Lumens on MaXx setting.
 

Where is this designed to clip to? With the orientation of the clip as it is it would sure point out to the side of the bike when attached to the bars

It clips on top of the joystick, piggy backing.

Presumably it halves the battery life of the light it runs off?

As this plugs into the back of another Exposure light with a Smart Port, it must reduce that light's running time? If used with a 240 lumens light, it would halve its life I assume?

 Redeye Rear Light with Cable
Redeye Rear Light with Cable
Encased in a tough CNC machined casing and fully waterproof. It uses the same Seoul P4 LED as the Joystick MaXx-2, but in red.
 

Does this light come with a long cable for a bike mounted front light, or a short cable for a helmet mounted joystick? Or both?
