Lights To ride your bike in fading light or the dark, road laws require
the rider to have a front light and a rear red light. It is also common
sense from a safety point of view to use both as they help you to see
where you are going and most importantly to allow cars to see you when
you are riding. Standard Bulbs & Efficient LEDs Bicycle lighting
essentially comes in four different types. At the lower end of the price
range are standard battery filament bulb lights which will allow cars
to see you and are sufficient to ride around lit streets. This variety
tend to be quite large and battery thirsty. The second type is LED
(light emitting diode) lights which are very powerful, energy efficient
and small. Depending on the amount of LEDs in the light they can be
suitable for town riding or limited riding on unlit roads. Rechargeable
Units The third type is rechargeable battery lights designed with a
variety of different units that attach to the bike and power either LEDs
or standard filament bulbs. These lights are both bright and powerful
and can be used in pitch black environments such as dark woods when
mountain biking. They are power hungry units and need to be charged
after each ride. Modern Dynamos The fourth type is dynamos which work
with a generator rubbing on the tyre to create power to light the bulb
or LED. These are by far the most energy efficient lights and thanks to
modern technology they are no longer heavy and inefficient. At AW Cycles
we stock a huge range of lights for all uses and to fit all types of
bikes; from leading manufacturers such as Cateye, Topeak, Busch &
Muller and USE.
