    Your price range is wrong my friend. Either buy a couple of cheapies or 200 quid on a really good one, you probably won't notice the difference between a 10 pound light and a 50 quid light so go for the cheaper option. Have a look also at the head torches in hardware stores, I use one and think it's better than most the cycling specific lights I've bought in the past. Not sure of the names of the kind of beem but lots of LEDs at the front still don't penetrate very far although they are good for being seen and last a long time on the batteries.

    £51 and a little brighter than the £255 exposures.
    Mine took 4 weeks to arrive though, so you may want to pay a little more and get them off ebay.

    Yes - get that on the front and 2 Smart Half Watts for the rear - £70 or so and you'll be sorted.
