    Philips SafeRide LED Bike Light ? 2012 Mtbr Lights Shootout -

    The light is now on a blow out sale (at least in Europe)
    Philips SafeRide 80 LED Bike Light battery front light offers at the cycling shop Rose Bikes

    This is probably a final blow out of the light since Philips have stopped production of the light
    "On March 31, 2014, Philips will permanently discontinue its line of LED BikeLights."

    I liked the tech, almost ordered one, but isn't there some QC or design issue? It was enough for me to cross it off the list. I ended up with a Piko TL Minimax.

    My next pay cheque is going to a brand new wheelset, and a Light & Motion Urban 800 Fast Charge. It's what I've settled on as my ideal commuter headlight.

    Pigmode brings up an incredible light in the Minimax though. If I was shopping for a great mountain biking light that wouldn't be completely out of place on the road, that would be right at the top of the list.
    Long is the way, and hard.
