Selectism columnists, Jeremy Dunn delivers an extensive review of bicycle lights for your bicycle. The importance of night illumination while on two-wheels should not be passed over: not all bike lights are made the same nor are they made with the same purposes in mind and Mr. Dunn lays out the differences.

“The days are becoming longer as we progress into spring, but for those of us riding our bicycles to and from work on a daily basis —night riding —is not a foreign subject. A quick stop in any bike shop will show you that there are any number of lights to choose from, in fact, most have an entire wall dedicated to the subject. Personally, I have been using a variety of lights over the years and have come down to the few that you see here. A few that are portable and easily accessible, ones that permanently attach to your bike and even a super bright one that is used for night-time trail riding.”
