I've been told that these are shite, but they're cheap. Has anyone had any experience of them?
I got a set of these for a similar reason they seem fine and do have the sideways illumination I wear a hi vis vest and have a second led on the back of that for the early morning drivers

I also got a set of these

I bought the same lights for the same reason. The lights are fine but the weather at the moment is grim.Been doing a spin/cycle fit class twice a week at my local gym and it has been great.You can measure how hard you have worked by the size of the pool of sweat beneath you when the hour is finished.After 5 weeks the legs are starting to feel as if they are ready for a few mogules. Cant wait for Jan to get away.

I had a standard cycle headlamp, and replaced the bulb with one of these.
Expensive to buy, but if you use it a lot, could save you a fortune in batteries.
The beam was really punchy as good as the standard bulb and still be as good when you would have chucked the batteries on a standard bulb.
