    I ordered my winter tyres today

    It seemed a good idea to order them before I, and everyone else, needed them. I read some reviews and the Schwalbe Studded tyres seemed to be well recommended.

    There don't really seem to be many...

    Okay, I figured out what is happening to my AXA Nano light. It is working. The problem is that it takes about a half of a block, or more, of riding to turn on.

    So, yes, it is working; it is just...

    I don't use the O-ring at all. Like the previous poster, I use zip-ties. For some reason people seem less likely to steal stuff off the bike if it is zip-tied on.

    That means I am of to walmart to get a headlight before it gets dark tonight.

    Mt headlight was working, then I rode on wet streets, not puddles, just wet. The headlight has not worked since. I...

    If you like the look of the pelican cases, just drill a couple of holes in one and put a rubber washer between the case and the steel washer. that will waterproof the holes for any normal use.
