No - not this kind of dead frog, though it does look like an ideal isotonic, carbohydrate-based drink for after a long (or short) ride…
No - I mean my Knog Frog Strobe. I was given a red one last autumn, and thought that paired with a white one for the front, it’d be ideal for going on the Brompton. Small enough not to interfere with the folding, and bright enough for in-town use.
The trouble was, I’d only had the front one a few weeks, and only used it a couple of times (very short trips), when I switched it on and found the batteries flat. Bah - how could I be so stupid as to leave the light on a bike that I’d folded and carried into the house?
So I got some new batteries and put them in. Only to find in a few weeks (and a single use) that the batteries were again flat.
Well now I reckon there’s a problem with the switch on that front light, and it’s somehow still drawing a small current from the batteries when the light’s apparently off. So this afternoon I went for a short ride to my local bike shop to get it exchanged.
