Some Upgrades - 2 - The lights on my bike

Upgrades Part 1 -> Read here

After the first set of upgrades, I just gave a break for the second set of upgrades. And when the time came, the immediate upgrade done was, lights.

I have started with the complement lights Decathlon gave with my bike. When they gave up, I quite went through a range of most possible cheaper lights. Cheaper ones? I was a miser on spending for bike components / equipments and I wanted the ratio of every component cost to bike cost to be as low as possible. (Later got the gyan -> n components x m bucks per component was worse than 1 best component x  (n x m) bucks per component)

The Climbfest - Prelude

Dear Participant,

“Bicycling unites physical harmony coupled with emotional bliss to create a sense of spiritual perfection that combines one’s body, mind and spirit into a single moving entity.  Bicycling allows a person to mesh with the sun, sky and road as if nothing else mattered in the world.  In fact, all your worries, cares and troubles vanish in the rear view mirror while you bicycle along the byways of the world: you pedal as one with the universe. ~ Frosty Wooldridge”
