Crikey. That's some serious internet if you want to keep up to date with them. More than this little black duck can handle.

1day is actually afiliated with T7 (and probably knucklebone as well).

If you are after an awesome, reasonably priced commuter light try the Cateye Volt300.

Cheapest price I can find on the net is at bikebug, $50.90. I got mine for $49 but it still a super price, for what I have researched to be, the best bang for your buck road light on the market -

Superfast shipping too.

Pro-Lite Oz have a 'clearance price' on Supernova Airstream 370 lumen bike lights and priced at $229 which will be cheaper than buying direct from supernova in Germany at 199 Eurto plus post.

If you want the Mercedes Benz S-Class of bike lights, this is it.

Hmm was thinking about dual mounting these puppies but don't know if that'll be overkill... Tempting.

Got an Exposure Joystick on the lid atm which I believe does a better job of "being seen", plus it's smaller and lighter :-)

Thinking of dual mounting them on the bar.

High 5 energy gels. Buy one box get another free !!! I just bought three, so I get six boxes (120 gels) delivered for $108.67. Works out to 90 cents per gel... they are about 3 bucks each in the shops.

Really tempted to buy one. That's a great price. Just not sure if I should spend the extra $100 and get the bundle. I don't really have a need for the bundle but I might in the future.

Depends if you need cadence or not? :?: the sensors alone don't cost 100 bucks. Sums it up for me.

So what's a cadence and HRM worth if I wanted to add them on later on?

If brand new, I think they are at $59 each.
Some forum members usually sell them for $40-posted. Keep an eye on them.

Gumtree has 3 HRMs together for 90 bucks right now. brendan c was going to lend me a cadence sensor (fortunately I don't need it)... these sensors are a LOT cheaper second hand than you'd think, especially the more important HRM.

You can pick up a 500 with sensors for that $ if you're happy with a 500.

Looking at the other Garmins tuff on there, the pricing isn't that spesh.
