Cell bikes have Beto Floor Pump Alloy w/Gauge on special for $10 - ends Wednesday 24/3. Seems pretty cheap to me, could be handy for a spare.

2 Mini LED lights for $10 from Kathmandu. Stocks are unlikely to last long I would guess, i picked up 4 this arvo. Every helmet in the country should have one of these on them for extra visibility. I've been using them for a year and they def earn a lot more respect from drivers as they give you some dimension having one on your helmet and a normal light on your seat tube/handlebar etc.

Replaceable batteries too although at this price the whole unit is cheaper then the batteries :)

You can buy the same lights here Deal Extreme for $80.16 USD with free shipping. I order stuff from them all the time, shipping takes about 2 weeks from order to arrival (except during Chinese new year, which took 3, but not during Christmas which took 1 week order to door :) )

But do Deal Extreme (overseas - Hong Kong ?) offer hassle-free warranty? I've heard they can be very difficult to deal with when something goes wrong. Local warranties are usually more reliable

DX can be a bit slow but they have *always* fixed up returns for me. (On the other hand it's mainly because the product was dead on arrival or the wrong product shipped, a lot :) )
I won't mention stores, but warranty from my closest store has been be a lot worse than DX to me.
On the other hand kudos to Cell, are pretty good that way.
