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.

How teeny teeny wee
Is the little tiny Flea,
One would think that one so small
could do no harm at all,
But all last night
In my hotel
He made me scratch
Like merry hell.

Good to see the Schwag Grab hasn't become a flash in the pan and is still charging ahead, lighting the way for others to follow ...

A pair of those would be just what the doctor ordered. maybe have to go to the co-op tomorrow to purchase a pack of tiffin. Should I eat them all guilt free on the train to Chester or save some for the radarlings, mrs radar and the radar-outlaws? (We're all off to the zoo tomorrow , zoo tomorrow etc Not enough room in car for all 7 of us so I've volunteered for two hours peace and quiet each way on the train - Guardian crossword, no mither and some tiffin squares. tangfastic!)

They look better than my very large and heavy Cateye lights. especially as my leg keeps catching on the rear bracket they're attached with.
