First night trail ride at the You Yangs with the rockbros lights.A few recent aliexpress purchases of mine...
New Monarch. Holds pressure, all adjusters work. Doesn't come with volume bands. Was for a mate's older bike, no issues after a few rides.
Steel axle for novatec rear hub. Was hoping to prolong the life of my cheap novatec hub so picked this up. Seems to be genuine, made in Taiwan. Measures 12x147.7 so pretty close to 148 (closer than the original alloy one).
2 self-contained rockbros bike lights. A V6-800 model and V9m-1000, 800 and 1000lm claimed. To my untrained eye they look to be as claimed. Definitely brighter than the ebay specials I've had for a few years now. Might actually be able to see where I'm riding at night now. Will find out Thursday when out for a night ride.
Pretty impressed with them. Lasted for the 1.5hrs or so that I was out, even after leaving the 800lm one on high during a climb, which did drain the battery a bit.
Descending they were great on their highest setting.
The 800lm is an older model I believe and if I was to buy again I would just get 2 of the V9M-1000's instead. I think it was only another $10.
But these two together work great for trail riding.
