    light recommendation

    I want a recommendation on basic but good front and rear LED to outfit 2 bikes, for street use. I am looking at princeton TEC EOS bike to set to flash mode

    I still need tail blinkers, any recommendations?

    On the bike that I do commuting I plan to add this as the headlight in addtion to the one listed above.

    The Planet Bike Superflash is a great light for the rear. For the front, you might look into a Magicshine. It's cheaper than the Cygolite you posted and more powerful.

    OK I checked out the PB superflash and also found this one which might be slightly better.

    1W LED seems to be good.

    This is a popular headlight on DX. I don't have this one (this is like a commuter light, I use brighter lights for mtbing in the woods), but it got a lot of good reviews.

    This is a popular tail light on DX. I have one and it's quite bright and really grabs your attention on flash (especially the disco mode).
    My wife drove pass me on the road one night and she said it's "annoying".
    I take that as a good thing.

    P.S. Just saw this same DX light on Amazon for $23! LOL!

    For commuting you only need a KNOG Frog Strobe front (clear) and rear (red). $25 out the door at Sports Basement or your local bike shop.
