FWIW I run 2 X 130 or 140 torches and this is plenty for on the road, unlit country road at that. But I need more. :twisted:Check out candle power forums too theres a sub section for bike lights. And I believe the MTBR has a decent lights section but haven't looked at it yet.

will be interesting to see how long the battery does last, not long I suspect- 3 lights up there and you will have a neck like mike tyson by the end of winter :lol: :lol:

Matty, 3lights will be to heavy, watch the batteries on these, large MAH rechargables struggle to fit in them. I found 2100 to be about right, reckon 40-50 min run time on a set so you'l have to take a couple spare.
