|Description||Online Bike Light Shop|
With an one of the largest ranges of manufacturers including Smart, Cateye, Knog, Oxford Products, Exposure Lights, Niterider, Bicygnals, Sigma Sport and Union, the site caters for all cyclists and offers suggested products for commuters, mountain bikers, long distance endurance cyclists and occasional cyclists alike. All the products on offer are rated by the Bike Light Shop – but nothing scores less than 6/10 because otherwise they wouldn’t stock it!
The site also includes a glossary aimed at helping users understand the terminology of bike light manufacturers e.g. how to determine how bright lights really are when manufacturers use different terms – Lux, Lumens, Watts, Candelas etc. Users are also asked to send in further information to the glossary section which could help others.
The creators of the site felt that there was little real help for cyclists in the area of bike lights and that most online retailers simply hosted/sold the products and left people to make their own decisions based on price alone.
The Bike Light Shop was founded in the summer of 2010 by Simon Bever, a 47 year old marketer with 25 years of experience of online and offline marketing; a lifelong cyclist with tens of thousands of miles of touring, commuting and racing under his belt.
The site description states;
‘The ultimate guide to bike lights for commuters, mountain-bikers, long distance and everyday cyclists - Low prices and FREE UK delivery.’ Specialties
