Does anyone want another PBSF thread ?

Hi,

I've just bought some Smart 1/2 Watt rear 'Superflash' lights and a couple of the Bspoke rear lights.

These are apparently the same as the Planet Bike Superflash lights.

Would anyone like a review of them ?

No, I have three of the Smart SF.
Mine seem brighter then the PBSF.
Do yours seem brighter?

Alas, I live in the UK and Planet Bike doesn't exist here.

We have to make do with Smart lights that haven't been rebadged.

I feel this is my fault.

The problem I see (ignoring the Bspoke) is that there appear to be 2 models of Smart SF. One with the SF and one with a 1/2w LED that flashes out of sync, but otherwise at the same rate.

I think the only useful thing would be able to categorically say which was which for us UK patrons.
