    mountain bike led lights suggestions !?

    currently right into mtb riding and thinking of getting a light for night rides, anyone recommend a brand or type ? i have quite a few 18650s from dead makita battery's and was thinking could i buy a battery box and run a light off it ? are the Chinese lights worth it ? or should i shell out on some fancy light and be done with it and if so which one?

    I have had a Chinese Ali Express light for night riding (helmet mounted). Went really well for the price but I think I could get by with my Zebra light now. The new LED torches/head lamps are pretty awesome.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    I got one of trade me with three LEDs. Its dam near as bright as the car spotlights!!!!

    I think it was one like this https://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/cyc...f719891912efb7 or https://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/cyc...f719891912efb7


    But I'm sure you can find them on aliexpress.

    because you want to look where you want to go and not where the bike is curently pointed, helmet mount is the way to go
