The Review
Cheap and good way to get into cycling

Strengths
Simple to use
Freaking durable
Rainproof
Long lasting battery
All I ever need
Functions as advertised
Package comes with more than the required number of cable ties

Weaknesses
Only 2 colours - Black or Silver
Wire strung around front brake housing looks untidy, but I don't think there is another way.
Instruction manual takes some getting used to. Read, then visualise the installation procedure. Then read again. Visualise again. Then read again. Visualise one more time and look out for any potential cock-ups that may occur.
