    Hello
    Can anyone recommend me a helmet-mountable (rear) LED light, please? Preferably nice and bright with a flashing mode. Part of my commute is on a busy 70 dual carriageway and I want to be well lit up. (I already have lights on the bike and a hi-viz vest). Many thanks.

    You can get them cheaper at Decathlon.

    Got mine from the Nottingham branch...I dare say they have them in Sheffield, too. Cost £5.35 AND it comes with a STRAP!! ;)

    Hmm... You couldn't be making an obtuse reference to a particular shop that, due to its lack of communication, now has a complaint against them logged with 'consumer direct'?;)

    I got a front and rear last year and they are very good.

    Not quite what you're asking for, but I have a little backupz type light,

    on my helmet. I got a pair last Christmas, I think they came from our local hardware type shop and were even cheaper than £5. The front one is a handy extra as well. Worth having a look and investing in a couple of pairs when you find them cheap - very light and mountable just about anywhere with a bit of thought.

    Also, if you are caught out after dark with a mate with no lights, they are easy to lend, not needing brackets...

    Moral dilemma: Bonj hasn't got any lights. ;)
