Good aren't they - sent back the Duo's and got a second set for the young fella
Yep - lacking light output - esp when paired with the MJ906 - can't say the weight bothered me tho @Oddjob just most places I pointed it the other light pretty much well had covered. The higher light source gave a...
Bit of an update from my post a while back
The Cleanskin Duo verses the MagicShine 906 - in real world use the MagicShine has quite a lot more usable...
Rats.... Burst water pipe the other night. Got it fixed, 5 mins later.... Another pipe goes. Rats are chewing through the bloody pipes. Whist I'm hopeful it's only two spots the pessimist in me says this might be a long process. I just want a shower.
It was on a 7 speed, so quality may have played a part. It was the distance of throw that was the issue, not the easy of use. Miss 8 can now use the rear trigger (I removed the front and converted to x1). The next issue it getting them to actually use the shifter rather than waiting until too...
Bit late to the party RE trigger shifters. Smalls hands struggle, especially front shifter. I converted a 24" bike to triggers but had to switch back to twist as they didn't have enough leverage with their thumbs.
Long time ago I thought to myself - I'd best do a lower leg service on the Pikes.......

Wife -"A friend has an old bike and she want to get back into riding. Can you have a look?"
Me - "Sure"
Perished tyres - check
Seized gears - check
Crunchy hubs - check
at least the brakes work
Lucky I have some old commuter tyres, I'll chuck some new cables in, give it a once over...
The better half found old mate the other morning on a ride, he didn't quite make it over the fence! We had to go back with a set of wire cutters.
Understandably he was pretty shook up but got going.
Been quite a few skips on the morning ride - barely missed one big bugger that jumped from...
To his credit he could only get a mullet if he accepted all mullet comments without fighting back. And he has done so, even with his brother's fairly constant ribbing. He does a mullet 'swish' that takes your breath away
