I've been meaning to buy a decent front light for years. All the AA battery ones I've had have broken through the years or fallen off and smashed. I wanted to get a heavy duty rechargeable one, not just for the purpose of being seen in the dark by cars, but one that you could take into the wilderness and see the trail ahead. So i just picked up this one for £50 on ebay.
Nice and small so it doesn't clutter the handlebars and really bright
With the nights drawing in it's a good investment, and a reason to go out onto the trails which are busy during the day with hikers and dog walkers, I've almost run over a few chihuahua's and daschunds coming round a bend a speed and had to slam on the brakes.
Will also get the illuminous safety t-shirt to compliment the look :-)
