Best cycle lights for your buck?


Now the nights are really starting to draw in I'm finding my little LED lights a bit inadequate, any advice welcome.

    Depends what cycling you are doing really, so a bit more info would be good.

    i.e. in towns, pitch dark country lanes, mountain biking in the forest (excellent fun in the pitch black)???

    Let us know and hopefully a bit more info will be forthcoming.

    Personally I use a Light & Motion set up, which although pricey (£120+) is almost as good as a car headlight on dipped beam, however, price would surely put a lot of people off. It covers all the above situations but battery life is limited to 2 hours, so no long rides!!!!

    Might be worth mentioning the type of riding you are doing and your budget.

    Hope that helps.
  • Hi, yes, sorry didn't think.

    Country lanes and then city, road cycling only, a £100 + on one light is out of my league totally...

    fenix l2d torch and handlebar mount.
    battery charger and some gp2700 aa batteries.

    should cost less than £75. torch lasts about 90mins/2h on turbo mode on a set of aa's. i used mine last winter and it was great for country lane unlit commuting.
