Rear light for Road Bike
I have one of these
nice all round visibility.
For outright brightness the Smart 1watt ones are hard to beat at the price.Posted 4 years agoircSubscriber
For riding at night two Cateyre LD610s. Lightweight, bright, and mountings available for seatpost, rack, or seat stay. Mounts either vertically or horizontally.Posted 4 years agoneilmMember
Another vote for the Smart 1 Watt.
I just went into my LBS and asked for the brightest rear flashing light they had.
I use mine all the time on every ride and have just fitted something similar to the front, prior to having to fit the proper winter LED light in another month or so.Posted 4 years agoeyerideitMember
+1 for Blackburn’ they’re very good for the price I’ve had my Mars 3 for about 10 years and it’s still going strong. £7.99 at Halfords which is flippin’ cheap.
I also bought a Moon Shield when Evans had thier crazy £20 off £40 spent ‘promo/f-up’ earlier this year. It doesn’t seem as robust as the Mars but is retina-burningly bright even on the lowest setting. So it’d be perfect for daylight riding.Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
Right this road business has been getting a bit serious……..
I’m not hanging up the Orange up but I’ve been on the road bike a lot recently just due to the ease of getting some miles in, did 66 the other Sunday and loved it.
Anyway, I’m after a bright rear light that I can use in dull daylight conditions as well as the dark As the other week I went into a line of trees and it was really dark for about 1/4 mile so could have done with a light even though it was daylight.
I’m using a Smart light at the moment which has a clip type fitting so ideally I’d be looking for a similar fitting as I hook it on the saddle bag.
Any suggestions please ?Posted 4 years agobigdaddyMember
I got one of the Leyzene ones. Bounced out of its holder the first time I took my cross bike onto a bridleway and was lost
Me too. I complained to Lezyne and they sent me a prototype new bracket which did hold the light firmly. Shame the quality of the light was such that the electronics didn’t last the winter, so now I have a light that stays in the bracket but doesn’t actually work…Posted 4 years agocarlosMember
Currently running the Smart Lunar R2 half watt. Better weather proofed and more of a secure lens than the Smart half watt (lost the lens and batteries on a rough bit of tarmac) as it clips in on either side.
