What Lights??

I've tried a variety of bike lights over the years. Some have been as useful as a chocolate teapot! others are ok but bulky, fiddly to use, or the battery doesn't last for the duration of the ride.

I suppose you get what you pay for, but I've always been wary of spending too much on lights and receiving rubbish.


So what do you recommend? How much have you paid for your lights? Are they battery or rechargeable? How long did the charge last? Any other information, please feel free to share!

The Specialized Stix plugs straight into a USB port and that connector also clips into the holder on the bike. It has several modes: High steady, Low steady, Power surge, Power flash, Disco flash, and Eco flash.

As I said previously, I need to test this on unlit lanes, but now managed to fix my Cateye light so have a back up too.

£26.99 from Tredz, not the cheapest I've bought, but then I've got what I've paid for in the past and they've ended up in the bin.

All mine are rechargeable, the last one I had was quite bulky with a separate battery pack. The battery pack got soaked in torrential rain and is now a bin product. Unfortunately the batteries cost as much as buying the whole unit.

Recently bought this Specialized Stix, seems quite bright but yet to test it on unlit lanes.

I admit, I've fallen foul of the dodgy front lights a few times. Definitely buy rechargeable ones now though

i go for front lights that are over 200 lumens. Anything less in my opinion does not light the way enough. also a rear light with flash and stable light options. At present i have a garmin light with radar that tells me when cars approach from the back. It flashes up on my garmin screen and shows how close the cars are.
