I would like a light(front) for that occasional dusk, sunrise ride. I would like to keep the cost =< $100. What about Magicshine? Are there problems with these lights? Thank you

It always amazes me that people will spend a couple thousand dollars on bikes and balk on something that can save your life. This year I splurged on a Dinotte combo 800 Lumen front and 400 Lumen rear for 479. I love them- total quality makes others seem cheesy by comparison. When riding at night I find cars passing me in the opposite lane, something that rarely happened otherwise. The rear light is bright enough to alert cars in the daylight. Go with quality. Not saying you can't get similar results with other less expensive combos but I really appreciate the quality in Dinotte.

I've had good luck with the Magicshine light. I'm starting my second winter with it. So far so good. No battery problems.
