Well with the dark nights just around the corner it was time to get some off road lights. Looked through many of the top brands selections but the price point was just out of my budget. <br /> <br /> Stumbled upon this light on eBay for just £14, figured at that price it would be worth a shot. Glad i gave it ago because its great! For the price you get a lot for your money, the light itself is only able to fit onto your bars or the head strap supplied. It certainly produces enough light on the high setting to let you go full blast on your favourite trail. With the low setting and the flash its handy for on the road too.

Well... after owning a Zesty 214 for over three years it was time for an upgrade and the new range Zesty for 2015 looked awesome. I've had this now for three weeks and WOW what a difference. The price for this model is a big step up to my previous bike but you get a lot of bang for your buck. The spec has some of the best fork and shock for 2015 not to mention the Race Face components. It's geometry has changed this year to the 2012 i was used to more designed for 'enduro' downhill as well as xc and perfect for the trail centres.<br /> <br /> If you're planning on running tubeless you may want to consider changing the tires. Been having a lot of trouble with the Nobby Nic's as the tire walls are so weak. Currently testing out a WTB tire and so far so good. <br /> <br /> I've had a large frame size but found the stem (70mm) you get on this size is to large for me and swapped that out for a 50mm feels a lot better but thats all down to preference.<br /> <br /> If you're like me and want to protect the frame there are a couple of areas you'll want to apply frame protection tape too. The left swing arm you'll catch with your shoes so worth putting some along there and also a bit on the front brake cable on the fork. You could also get the rubber protectors which i've done as well as the tape which works well.

If you run flats, Five Ten's are a must the grip level is unbeatable. With their stealth rubber and a wide platform the grip is great in all weathers!

The look and style of this helmet won me over. The fit is great i went for a medium sizing. This lid is at the top end of the market and will set you back for around £200 which is a fair chunk more than some of its close competitors, but its worth every penny.<br /> <br /> If your planning on mounting your camera (GoPro) onto it you'll need a vented helmet strap but you can get away with the sticky pads but the position you would need to stick it is a little to far forward.<br /> <br /> They do a whole range of colour combo's kind of wish i'd have gone for the blue now!

A great trail bag, can fit all your basic tools and a few spare tubes with a 2L pouch for your water. There's an extra compartment that you can put a jacket and a few other bits.<br /> <br /> As i take out a bit of camera equipment and other things i find it hard to fit it all into this bag so if you're in the same boat you may want a slightly bigger pack size.

Well... I've had this bike now just over 3 years. It was a large step up for myself from a much lower spec cheaper bike to this which was £1,800 list price. The bike itself has run great over the time with only basic maintenance and parts needed.<br /> <br /> I would fully recommend this bike to anyone who's wanting to get a good trail bike. The one thing that lets these down is the frame bearings those will need replacing as the ones from the factory don't seem run last all that long. But other then that the spec you get for the price is almost unbeatable compared to similar models on other top brands.<br /> <br /> I like it so much i've just ordered the new Zesty 527 hopefully that one will last me another 3 years!

Some of the best socks on the market, very comfortable and a nice fit designed for biking. They have a great range to suit all riders the Rad design really pops as you can see. My number one choice when it comes to socks for any sport, which designs do you like best?
