    Comments about Cygolite Metro 500 Headlight:

    I first tried the light on a twilight ride on my road bike. I tried the various modes and found that the solid mode with strobe was perfect for sight and being seen by cars. On my commuter bike, I use it on medium along with a separate flashing light. It is far better than any light that I have used before. Great visibility, easy to use.

              Comments about Cygolite Metro 500 Headlight:

              Bright enough to see path hazards in plenty of time to react at 15 to 18 mph. Charge lasts longer than advertised. I regularly use it on high for 2 hours and have yet to even run low. IMHO, best buy for the money. Mounting system is a little cumbersome, but very steady. Light does not waiver up and down like some others. It has a side to side swivel that might be problematic in the future as if already feels a little loose, we'll see how that holds out.

              Comments about Cygolite Metro 500 Headlight:

              I use this light on my hybrid all the time. Mounts on the handle bars. I use it during the day on a BRIGHT flashing. Lights up a head of you - road signs, reflectors, and anything reflective! Cars from behind me see the road signs flashing from the light.

              Great for dusk / Night time riding. Your like a train going down the road.

              I really like the steady/flash mode as well.

              This light gives me the comfort I need as I ride early evening as its getting dark.

              This light saved me from running over a downed power line... as I was riding after a thunderstorm one evening.

                  Bought this light on sale and for the money it's hard to think I could have done much better. I like the various modes with steady/pulse being the best I think. I ride regularly in the early morning hours before the sun is up and this light really makes for great visibility. So far the battery life has been more than adequate for my needs.

                  The recharge time is a bit long, and the recharge cord is a bit short, but those are really minor gripes.

                      Wow, for the money this light really lights the way. Not only can I see ahead nicely when I have this light on the brightest mode street signs reflect brightly. No problem installing on 31.8 bars.
