i bought one of these last winter. no problems so far with it. good bright light, but the fixing to the bars is a bit naff, but it works.

How cheap is cheap?
I bought a Magicshine MJ868 for £79.99 on eBay some time ago. Bargain comparing to other lights with similar power. And I used to think that NiteRider Minewt 350 was powerful... That MJ literally turns night into day. Highly recommend :-)

I've been recommended the Magic Shine lights too by a couple of guys at work. Delivery is reasonably quick and they're supposed to do a pretty damn good job for the money.
