Hello peeps after a total light failure and for being a bad husband and leaving her stranded in the dark on thursday night ride at the Mercy of the gananawopper :B , in a dilemma as Laura’s lights have gone caput.

As a cheaper option I can highly recommend the Smudge XML Light.  I find it a very good light for both commuting and for off roading, it holds a charge well and hasnt left me wanting for more light when I'm out on the trails.

I'm more than happy with my one of these: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.magicshineuk.co.uk/products/Front-Bike-Light-Magicshine-MJ-872-LSET">http://www.magicshineuk.co.uk/products/ ... J-872-LSET</a><!-- m -->

Bit more expensive than the one above though.

Ive got this one http://www.magicshineuk.co.uk/products/M...MJ-808LSET

And it is brilliant! I would say it is more than adequate for riding any UK trails! Anything brighter is an advantage I guess Smile

IMHO both the Hope & the Maxx D are too bright.
If you're looking to go night riding why would you want to turn it into daytime Undecided

The MagicShine provide loads if light for riding & at a very sensible price.
The other cheaper options listed above look great too.

Thanks for all the feed back Laura is working late all week so have a bit of time to get it sorted. as for being too bright i find i can just ride faster when you can see futher Wink good point on cost though.will keep looking but think laura is thinking maxx-d as its all in one and no leads only down side is the spread of the beams not as good as the hopes, but seems better on all other counts Undecided

I use a solitary Exposure Diablo for my night riding - very happy with it, love the simplicity.

Just started using a Four4th & seems to be very pleasing to the eye. As bright as the Hope, cheaper than the Hope, as good a quality as the Hope but with a much better cable connection than the Hope... My other light is a Hope 4  ;D  You're welcome to come have a look-see if you're passing by Lordswood anytime
