night bright tyres 223x300   Cyglo Night Bright TyresCyglo’s Night Bright Tyres are the newest innovative approach to bicycle safety on the road. Using LED bulbs built in the tire treads, the cyclist simply switches on a motion sensor within the tire which activates the LED bulbs and then your tires can be seen rolling on the road under various lighting conditions.

For increased visibility on the road, the LED bulbs can be turned on permanently or it can be on a flashing mode. As you ride your bike, the flashing lights form a circle, illuminating your tires on the road. As you pedal, there is a transfer of power which is also used to power up the bulbs.

brooks colt saddle returns   Brooks Colt Saddle Returns

Not long ago, we broke the word that Brooks would re-issue the Colt saddle, originally releasing in 1979. The last year Brooks released the Colt was in 2001, while it was known for its durability and strength. Although not for certain, some say the reason for the Colt to be discontinued was the sale of Brooks (in 2001).

The Brooks Colt Saddle will take a different approach, still obtaining the retro look and black colorway, you can also purchase the seat in violet and mustard. At EuroBike, a pink and turquoise Colt will debut. Keeping the saddle environmentally friendly, the colors are obtained by natural vegetable dyes. Retail price is $189.99.
