Good deal. The people who think this is a bad deal do not know what they're talking about.

You will find it difficult to get a decent bike light to see with for less than £100. A cheap thing from tesco is fine to be seen but is no good if you want to light up the road.

The cheapest solution to this is to buy torches from places like dealextreme instead but that's not ideal really. I mean the cheapest bike lights for this purpose on dealextreme are still about £60 and they're not branded.

I got a similar one from poundland the other week


The cheap piece of **** you bought from poundland will not light up the road at all so it is completely different product. Besides that, the mounts on poundland lights are very poorly made and break very quickly. I know I've had two of them, both broke within a few weeks.

For seriously addicted lycra louts only! Yes, you need decent lights (NOT Poundland ones, though they are still better than no lights at all) but these are a serious example of the law of diminishing returns as you go up the technology ladder. You can equip your bike with perfectly decent lights at a fraction of the price but your lycra mates won't coo over them and normal people won't laugh!
the red light is in poundland i got one the other day works great.
head lights would be cheaper if purchased with the 1989 micra from ebay and they come with a free car attached to them...
I purchased this light just over two years ago from Evans cycles - it was about £135 at the time due to a VAT-back offer. It normally costs around £150, so this is a good deal.

Yes £130 is a lot for a bike light, but in the world of mountain biking this is considered a mid-range light. If you want to see a top of the range light, check out the Lupine Betty:

Before owning the Hope Vision, I had a Cateye which was around £40. It was ok for commuting on well lit roads, but useless for anything else (such as off-road riding or country roads without street lights). The Hope is in a completely different league. It's so bright, you can't use the highest setting when there are cars about as it blinds the driver (unbeknownst to me when I first got it!). My mate was so impressed he bought one as well.

Hope customer service is also top notch - they fixed the battery pack free of charge even though it was out of warranty. It's easily one of the best mountain bike related items I've purchased and hopefully I'll get many years cycling out of it.

And is that one CNC-machined in England with industry leading tech support and supplied with a rechargeable battery pack? I guess this shows that HUKD readers know absolutely nothing about what I admit is a specialist cycling product, but they're not afraid to judge and comment on it. "Half Price Porsche on offer", "You can get a 1989 Micra for that on the Bay, rubbish deal" etc.
im not slating your deal noob....in fact i never mentioned a single word about your deal. so why you getting on your high horse ! think you better lower your saddle of your saracen and take a chill .
most hukdealers cant afford or warrant paying £130 for lights. all i was stating that the e... ones are extremely bright with all metal body and a good rig to hold the light all for £1.50 plus £4.10p&p.you wont get brighter or better lights than these anywhere on this planet for less than £1.50
