Blackburn Flea light set

Tiffin has been taken, the random number generator fired up and the big red button pressed. So it's time to announce the winners of this week's Schwag Grab. And they are (drum roll)...

Keith Underdown

Congrats to the lucky winners and commiserations to y'all who missed out. Next week: some natty pedals!

[here's the original story]

The Schwag Grab has been away for a bit but now it's back! And this week we've got five sets of Blackburn Flea front and rear lights to offload on you lucky chancers courtesy of our pals at Madison.

If you haven't seen the Flea lights before, well they're mad clever: the lights are rechargeable and the come with a little charging unit that attaches magnetically to any standard AA battery: they work with rechargeables too.

Once they've had their fill they'll run for between 3 and 12 hours, depending on mode, before you need to top them up. And they only weigh 17g each, so even the most stringent of racing snakes should be okay with them.

The rules are as usual: just comment on this story to be in the hat. No multiple posts please. We'll draw the winner on Friday at about tiffin-time. Mmmm, tiffin.

It's a rather dull Friday in my redundancy hit office and I'm paying little attention to whats going on around me when i feel a hand on my shoulder, its my boss, she says 'erm, whats this?' In my half asleep panic stricken state and hoping she takes pity on me, i reply 'I'm on a bike website leaving a post in a vain attempt to win some lights'. At least if this post goes against me in the '5 reasons why i should keep my job' sweepstakes I'll have some lovely lights to show for it.......
