If you're commuting lights are more for you to be seen rather than for you to see with really - unless you ride down unlit country roads.

If you just want to be seen get some LEDs. If you need to see where you're going then get some super duper lights. Or a dynamo.

A combination of having seen this thread and having to use my 'retro' cygolites for the first time this year has lead me to the conclusion I really need a new set of lights.

Looking for something a little brighter than Chris I think - will be using them for winter night riding also. Any reccomendations?
