Halfords bike hut 1600 lumens for £50
It also acts as a power bank for your phone. Lasts a long time and seems well built.

I installed a Lezyne ebike light on my commuter and I'm really happy with it. I used a battery powered light previously, and I'm not going back. I'm considering installing a light on my other emtb too.

Hi, I bought an exposure joystick for around £80.
Can't fault it it's great.

Read @Gary 's review of Halfords 1600 lumens light, plus £5 for a separate handlebar remote control. I bought 1 and cant fault it for the price, I am after a more stable clamp for it if anyone can recommend one.

@Ducatijones if you switch the light over to the supplied gopro mount there are tons of Alu gopro bar mounts, stem mounts and top cap mounts on Ebay for a few quid a piece.
The Halfords helmet mount for the light (also uses gopro coupling) is also pretty good (£5)

Really? So No garmin out front mount anymore either?
That's odd
it's still pictured with it on their website and the helmet mount is still described as being compatible with the light

I know, I thought it might have been missing from the box it came in but someone else mentions it on the last post of your review.

I've just got a lifeline pavo 2000 for the front and an exposure tracer for the back. Like yourself i'm not sure how much i'll be using it during the dark so didn't fancy splashing £300 . I haven't put them on the bike yet but the exposure looks great and the pavo is very bright quite heavy though but was expecting it to be .

Buy the bikehut helmet mount.
It's actually really well designed and pretty solid in use. (if you want to helmet mount the light)
Best of all it's only a fiver and comes with the go pro mount to attach to the light.
