The Zefal Bicycle Starter Pack includes six essential items to help you get your bicycle ready for the road. The kit includes a mini hand pump with folding T-handle that allows you keep your tires properly inflated. The convenient frame mounted bracket holds the pump so you can bring the pump along with you in case you have a flat or realize that you're low on tire pressure. Also included is a front and rear led light set. The front light has a durable aluminum body and contains nine white LEDs, while the rear light has five red LEDs. Both lights have multiple modes (constant and flashing) to help you be seen when out on the road. The wide mouth, 20 ounce, water bottle with reinforced plastic water bottle cage allows you to carry your water so you can stay hydrated during your ride. Lastly, the kit includes a five-foot long, self-coiling keyed cable lock so you can lock up your bike while you step away from your bicycle to run into a store or simply stop to enjoy the scenery.

Now I'll go over each item in more detail:
- headlight: Doubles as a removable flashlight, the headlight+taillight set sells for $18 on Amazon. Frankly, the headlight sucks because it's just your run-of-the-mill dollar store 9-LED flashlight. However, the mount is ok and probably worth $3-$5. I already had a much brighter LED flashlight that was the same size, so that was an easy upgrade.
- taillight: easily worth $10; has 3 patterns--constant on, all flash, and pattern strobe. The pattern strobe seems like it would be pretty visible.
- bottle cage: same exact one sells for about $13 by itself on Amazon. The fiberglass-reinforced plastic has a lot of flex and I don't trust it to hold my water bottle in on a rough ride, so I mounted this bottle cage straight up and down.
- bottle: nothing special, but probably worth a buck or two
- emergency pump: worth maybe $10, it's not a very good pump but it's better than nothing. You won't want to use it to pump up your tires on a regular basis, but if you have the choice between using this pump and being stranded someplace with a flat tire, you'll be glad you have the pump.
- cable lock: similar to the Hunter Specialties cable lock, which sells for $5 on Amazon. At best, it'll keep honest people honest. Don't rely on it to keep your bike safe overnight or in a moderate crime area. I'm only planning to use the cable lock to "secure" my bikes to the hitch-mounted bike rack on my car. As easy as it would be for someone to cut the cable, unfortunately it would be even easier for someone to just remove the entire bike rack, bikes and all.
The set also comes with all the brackets you'll need to mount the equipment on your bike. The headlight and taillight come with their own quick-release brackets, and the bottle cage is a standard frame-mount cage. The pump includes a mounting bracket that attaches to the standard frame mount screw holes, but I opted to attach mine to the horizontal bar of the frame using zip ties. The bracket also includes a velcro strap which isn't mentioned in the instructions, but I'll use it for extra holding power to keep the pump from popping out of the bracket. I might also try attaching the lock using the velcro strap.
All told, it would cost about $42 to piece together a comparable set. Even if you throw the flashlight and cable lock in the trash, you'll come out ahead.
