Also, the thing that no-one talks about is that the worse your lights are the more exciting night riding is.

I`'d certainly reccomend Electron EHP 315s.I used a set last winter,and whilst they are a bit clunky looking,and have long recharge times,they were perfectly acceptable,for a 2 hour ride round my local woods.
Again they canbe cheaply upgraded,with better bulbs,if you so desire.
Can be found for around £50 on the net.
I did an impromptu off-road test on Wednesday using a Fenix P3D (which I'd purchased for using on unlit roads). As a very cheap light it's going to take some beating (although as a torch it's quite pricey! ) It was certainly bright enough for all singletrack through the woods and was a match for a Dinotte 200L, a Light & Motion Stellar, it swamped a set of Blackburns and was again comparable to a Cateye Tripleshot. In fact the only real issue would be battery run-times at just under 2 hours full beam.
Exciting isn't a word I'd use to describe it...
have you got the light???
