Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super bright light. 2 flashing modes and 2 solid modes make it easy to be seen by vehicles and other riders alike. I go with one of the flashing modes on the road by myself, dim solid mode for group riding, and bright solid for night time MTB woods fun. It pairs well with the Niterider Headlights I have (I have a 400 and 700 lumen model) to make for a really highly visible package. Easy to charge with USB, and for $30 (when it's on sale), it's a STEAL.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Awesome concept, fantastic conversation piece, decent burger flipper, shoddy tongs. I use the flipper every time I BBQ now. The tongs don't really grab anything well, especially sausage/hot dogs. They are a grilling disaster waiting to happen. I keep them around for flipping veggies and other flat things on the grill, but really, I have to use other tongs for flipping anything round. Seriously awesome toys to have though, and they're a great gift for any cyclist who already has his/her own bike dialed in.

Great little commuting light. Not bright enough to ride trails with, but definitely bright enough to ride on a road without street lamps. The flashing mode is great for city riding where you don't need the light, but you need to be visible. 2 Brightnesses allow for better visibility (although I almost always use the brightest one... the battery is pretty good so far, so why not?). The USB charging device is a cool addition too. This thing is VERY small. It doesn't look like it in the pictures, but it's only about the size of a US Quarter around and maybe 1.5 CM thick.

I got these because they were cheap and now I'm hooked on capo. The chamois on these is so much more comfortable than the one in my comparable $140 Louis Garneau's it's not even funny. The Louis's chamois is comfy and all, but these... these are unreal. The fit is great (order a size up from your American usual bib size) and the non-standard leg grippers (no rubber!) are fantastic. I ride these shorts whenever I can!

UPDATE: I wrecked in these over the weekend... they stood up pretty well minus one little rip. Any part of my leg not covered by the shorts was torn up pretty bad, but the shorts seem to have kept the rest of my leg from getting bad road rash. They're still wearable, and just as comfy as ever!
