      im not sure what the going rate is, or how much they cost to post but thinking around 25 for the lights and 30 for the urbans. if youre worried about the strength the lights probably arent for you. they are pretty damn light.  a mate of mine has run the same urbans for two years now on his street bike and they have taken far more punishment than i can bear to watch. the older ones tended to bend/crack around the steerer joint, so i have been told, but these have something nuts like a 6mm thick steerer tube. far thicker than my trialtechs

  2. fact of the matter is no one really likes to work just one of lifes necessitys to survive an if you honestly think temping is better than doing what your doing, then you really need to re consider, as agencys pay is going to be the same minimum wage crap, for 1-2 days a week if your lucky an bareing in mind it all takes time too, its not something thatl just happen over night

      Keep positive man! Word of warning though AD's are like any other drug and can be very difficult to come off leaving a lot of people with severe withdrawal.

  14. it was a verified address, basically hes said courier cocked up the address, an was delivered to another address up his street supposedly , he then claimed it hadnt been delivered there at all , although i had the proof to say it had, an on the sat nav an google maps however you put the addresses in it still comes back to the one house an the initials used to sign for the frame are suspiciously similar,to the guys actual name so if it was delivered to the wrong address why would the guy be signing for it himself ?
  15. scamers on ebay really annoy me , eventually sold my pashley frame through ebay, gets posted out gets to the said delivered address which there was a discrepancy in the guys paypal address only corresponded to a road, so the courier said this is the address so the frame was posted, after 2 weeks i get a message saying its not arrived i go to the courier an they say it was delivered and gave me a prove of delivery note with the signers signature on an a delivery schedule, he had the delivery rescheduled 3-4 times an it was eventually signed for at an address on the street, anyhow , he still claimed the frame wasnt there an then told me someone had signed for it , in the end he closed his case an didnt get a refund as i told him id be going to the address given with the police to retrieve my pashley frame as someone signed for it in his name at that address was fraud an theft , an havent heard anything since ,,,, be careful of this scam , basically people arent giving there full address on paypal so when there item comes to be delivered itl be left with a neighbour as the address will only come up as a road, an then they claim not to have received the item blaming the courier, NEVER POST ANYTHING WITHOUT TRACKING AN BEING SIGNED FOR, it could save your ass like it has mine
