"Beware that the small sealing washer in the valve head "can" get
stuck to the valve when everything frosts up after use. check it's
not on the vavle when you remove the pump as without it the
pump is useless.
on a lighter note however - works flawlessly in the field #apart
from the above# and allows a small inflation first to check seating
etc before commiting to a full inflate - nice. You can easliy store
an unused cartridge inside it saving pocket space :)

get it so making you more visible to other road users. fits well
nice and tight plus it's easy to swap between bikes in seconds.

 Arundel Dual Seat Bag 2013
Arundel Dual Seat Bag 2013
The Arundel Dual seat bag is the perfect compromise between the two extremes of seat bag. It's bigger than a coin purse sized bag, yet it's smaller than the carry-all sized bag that wouldn't fit in the overhead bin of a commercial airliner.

"a great little investment. yes you have to take a wheel out and yes
you could do with a toe strap to hold the bottom bracket down but
all that pales when you use it for the first time. no wobbling about
like the "clamp the seat post/frame" ones, no back ache, all the
tools being used are right there on the tray.
Can't believe how easy re-indexing gears now is :)
The only downside if I can find any are trying to get a road bike on
that has full guards with a mud flap fitted ... close to not going but
it can be done.

I normally take a size 42 shoe. However, cycling shoes often seem to be small for their size. What size do you recommend I should try in the ZS15R?

A must-have for urban night riding. The new TL-LD610 is slimmer and brighter than its predecessor, with five LEDs and three modes that maximize your visibility.
 

How do you fit this?

Hello, I bought this light and it arrived nice and promptly, I had a look at it and it looked really easy to fit just like a cable tie type fitting or something, so I threw out the packaging. When I came to fit it I have struggled.... what I imagined to be an easy cable tie has nothing to trap it.

Does anyone have some really simpleton instructions they could share with me, it will need to be back to basics for me to grasp it I think!!

Thank you!!
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
you insert the ribbed portion through the slot then turn the thumb
wheel ... not so much a cable tie as a jubilee clip :)
