Can some one recomed me a new light as my night ride 650 lumina is sucking at charging. Night rider said they could have it back to me in 4 to 6 weeks. Boo that's not going to work for me as I'm riding every night in the dark. Help

Hopefully the LBS will have something good that meets your budget. Are you looking for a replacement or just something to tide you over until the other one is fixed? If you are lucky they will be having an end of light season or a beginning of bike season sale. Consider a helmet light if you are fixing a bar light, or vice versa, so then you will have both when the other one gets fixed.

I got left high and dry one of my first times out, and my light burned out. Had a MagLite LED in my bag, and I just held it in hand on my bars, and it worked well enough to get me home. I think they even sell flashlight bar mounts at REI IIRC. Mag was $29.99 at the local store. Might be enough to hold you over until your repaired unit is back. Do you have a price that you would like to keep it under?

If you need something affordable in the short term I use a Cygolite Metro 420 and I've been happy with it. I've found it to be bright enough for my usual speeds of 17-18 mph and you can get it on Amazon for just over $50 so it's a pretty good bargain I think.

They also have a newer model that ups it to 500 lumens for like $70.

My sister gave me the Cygolite 500 for christmas. I love the thing. It holds a charge well and throws a lot of light. Very good light to get.

I like having two lights. Allegedly the two lights make it easier to gauge speed and its just nice to have a back up.
