Deal #4 from Jonny

CatEYE lamps are decent quality, and give you guys something to use with all those batteries you've been buying from Game/Wii points promo. Edinburgh Bikes is a Co-op run in edinburgh and are a friendly nice relaxed company with a great level of service and a real passion for what they do. They have a real loyal customer base including me!

Like a more compact version of the EL500 - Cat Eye's brightest single-lamp LED headlight.
800 candlepower output, thanks to Cat Eye's Opticube lens technology. As well as getting you seen, this will light up the road sufficiently for riding unlit cyclepaths at night (though not enough for serious off-road night riding).
30 hours high beam / 60 hour low beam run time.
4 x AA batteries supplied. ,

£3.50 postage and packing

ENJOY JONNY

Free delivery to the UK?

Is this likely to be as good quality as CatEye? maybe I should have bought this.

Anyway, did a check and next nearest price for CatEye light is £19.95

Its like comparing an Astra to an Audi.... If you want quality, you got to pay for it.. in my experience.

I might well be wrong

Im not comparing them , just giving people an cheap alternative!!!!

I can endorse the quality of the CatEye - I've a set (front and rear) that cost about £30 and both are excellent.

In the past I've purchased cheaper lights and they have been a waste of money.

Anyone who voted cold on this deal doesn't know anything about bike lights. I bought various LED lights from eBay when I first got my Marin hardtail. All of the lights were 'okay' but it wasn't until I paid £40+ for a CatEye set from Evans that I realised how much of a huge difference there is terms of brightness and distances. The CatEye emits what is practically a white beam over a longer distance - crucial during night time rides. I'm amazed that people are prepared to skimp on something that could mean the difference between them getting hit or not being hit a by car. The CatEye beam is also visible from a much further distance - I even did some comparative tests of walking 20, 50, 100 metres away from my bike for each light. That Cateye light really is vastly superior to that £2.68 jobbie. They simply aren't comparable and its a false economy to think otherwise.

dude, this isnt even a good light. Look for Light Motion like this http://www.evanscycles.com/product.jsp?style=12002
to get some proper lights.
#15
I quite agree!

How we could even think about buying a front light for £15 squid when there is a obvious other choice at just £475 is unbelievable !!!!

I assume that TinoP has his tongue firmly in his/her cheek :-)

You could buy 31 of the catseyes for £475 - they would light up anyones track.

Does anyone know if this light flashes?

Yeah it does flash. My mum works for this company btw, and also owns it as it is a co-operative so all the workers are the owners.

Catseye are about the top of the lower end of the market (unless you want to pay £000's on a 5w-10w that will last 5ish hours). If you can afford it the EL530 is a stonking front light. Doesn't blink or anything daft but is is 1500 candlepower and lasts 40 hours. Goes for £40ish in this country or buy off eBay US for about half price (plus postage)

Got a spare Catseye LD1000 If anyone is interested. 10 LEDs arranged in two rows allowing 3 different blink patterns or one VERY bright rear light. Bought for a friend but turns out they'd already got one. Paid £25 for it, still boxed with batteries etc. If you're interested I'm after £15.

I have a five LED cateye that is brilliant (pun intended) and makes you very visible I would only consider an under a fiver light as an emergency one to carry if the main failed for some reason.

Gotta agree. I've become more aware of bikes on the roads and pavements since buying a new MTB last year and I'm amazed there aren't more bike related deaths given some of the pathetic lights you see (or don't) on them. This really is a be seen be safe(r).

A kid was killed round here last month at 7am cycling across a main road.

Brought £40 cateye lights 2 years ago from halfords. Cycle in dark once a week to work on early shift and every day through winter months. Bats only needed replacing once and i had accidently left them on for 13 hours one night in shed.

hot deal.
#24
Was disappointed to have missed out on this deal, but have just managed to buy the same light (after a lot of searching) at CyclesportsUK for £19.99 and free delivery.
