It’s that time of year when we all need lights. And I’m in the market for a new one.
I’m looking at around 1000 lumens and a budget of around £150 (max).It needs to have the go pro mount connection as my I want it to sit under my wahoo out front mount which has that connection on it rather...
Found out last night that the dynamo (AXA HR traction dynamo) on my bike does not work!!
Thinking of stripping it down and going for battery lights!! But which ones?
Around where I live is very very dark, no road lighting. Would be nice to be able to be seen!!
Appreciate your help/advice
I am talking about the sort of thing we have in the UK to control traffic round road works
I have had a few problems with them over the last few months and I was wondering if others have the same issues
The problem has been that, although starting off as soon as the lights go green - by...
I wish to replace or modify the bracket/mounts my Cateye lights came with.
(see photos - two types : square plate / mount type and a narrower slide/clip plate / mount type)
Refering to the photos - could someone advise if these types of plate/mount connectors are generic and universal and...
Acquired these lights which are period for some of my bikes. Originally used P800 batteries which are no longer available. I’ve seen adaptors which can be inserted and then AA batteries fitted. Any one done this? Also looking to replace front light glass as this is cracked. Again looking for...
I know nothing about Bromptons, but somebody not a million miles away is taking delivery of one in the next six weeks or so. It will be used mainly for pootling about London, the odd ride in the country, but no midnight dashes through rocks and stumps and other daft stuff requiring Hermann...
I have a few Cree front lights the light is great but the batteries are not so.
I’ve stripped one down and the thin tin strips have snapped or worn through, is there anyway to repair these?
or do folks know of a more sturdy battery?
thanks for any pointers

In anticipation of a fairing arriving in the next few days I needed to relocate my front lights. Had a bit of free time this morning so I manufactured a couple of brackets from some old bits of aluminium tube I had lying around the workshop and an old M10 bolt. They're designed to attach to the...
After 3 years of reliable service, the exposed wiring that leads from my front dynamo lamp to the rear (B+M Secula) LED light became brittle and snapped in two. The exposed wiring is really thin copper, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did! Road vibrations have killed it at last.
I had to...
I run an Exposure TraceR and the tab on the silicone ring ripped off the other day. Sent a query on Tuesday evening asking if they sold them. Got a response on Wednesday morning asking for pictures so they could Identify the correct replacement. Got home Thursday evening and there was a first...
I have one of those LED lights from China (mounted low enough so as not to melt windscreens) but the cable on the battery is faulty, so I want to chop out the damaged section of cable because it's far too long anyway.
However, I can't find the correct socket anywhere. I could change the plug...
Some regulars may remember I have a hobby of writing to magazines, hopefully to get on the letters page and obviously to win some booty by getting letter of the month accolade. I hadn't written to a magazine for around 18 months (winning a helmet..... behave all of you....) so....
I thought I...
With a bag in the back on a rack, where do I put the lights? Got two on the rack bracket but one rattles. Should i put it on the bag?
The rack has thin horizontal struts. The bag blocks the seat and seat tube. I'll take a pic
Picking up my new bike this week, need to sort out lights.
For the rears I'm thinking the cateye mini as it seems to be compatible with the brompton to fit in the gap under the seat. OK choice or are there others that can also attach there? (Or should I consider attaching/replacing the...

Has anyone any experience of waterproofing lights that are only sold as water resistant?
Currently looking at these as I have chosen to have (rechargeable) AA battery power.
I made a time-lapse video of the view from my kitchen window. Annoyingly the snow did not last long, but there was something interesting going on in the sky the first night. Were they the northern lights?
I was doing a little Christmas shopping today when I came across some JML wheely bright lights being sold in the local shop in town. From a safety point of view they look very impressive and would be a big hit with the youngsters, but would you dare to be seen with these on your bike...
Can anyone recommend really good bright lights - front and back for road cycling (ones that I can strap onto the bike using the rubber strap thingy, rather than a fixed fitting). Preferably USB rechargeable.
