    Good light for the money

    Yesterday we finished a ride in the dark without a light and now I'm looking. My LBS has the cygolite 250 and 350. Will these be good or do I need something stronger. Now I know the brighter the better but I'm low on cash and these are both at the high end on my price range or so the wife tells me lol. Thanks

    Those little Cygolites are good to be seen and good as an absolute emergency light. My roommate has one. But not good for serious night riding.

    Agree with Rakuman, dollar for lumen, that would be your best choice. Just don't expect it to be bulletproof and particularly dependable. You get what you pay for. Then again, since the lighthead is $55, you can replace it every 12 months if need be and still save compared to purchasing a better built light. Like a DiNotte for instance.

    I have 8 Magicshine lights that I use at least 2 times a week with Zero issues with the lightheads, the battery's were another story but if you get your light from Geoman batteries wont be an issue either
