ConsNone
ProsBrightness, Construction
Casts a bright usable pattern on the road ahead. Also works as an attention getter during daylight, with noticeably fewer car drivers pulling out from side streets into my path. Now 2 years old and still working well.

Consneeds a dynamo, not much of a con really
Prosbright and even I can't forget to charge it
It's official, I'm stupid!

I have finally taken the plunge after once again forgetting to charge my old lights up and gone dynamo.

I purchased the Cyo after reading various articles. This is a great light, bright and puts the light where it's needed i.e. on the road and not at low flying aircraft. Teamed up with a Shimano Deore LX dynamo I find that it gets to full power at about 8mph. The standlight is great too.

Do yourself a favour go dynamo and team it up with this light.

ConsNone what so ever.
ProsBrilliant visibility and safety, even in bright daylight.
I have only just got the bike back from the shop 3 days ago, with this new lamp and hub dynamo fitted, so I have not really been able to "Use It In Anger" yet. BUT...because I have the headlamp on at all times, in "motorcycle daylight headlight mode", it has already been noticed by 3rd parties I have met, as a remarkable, in daylight visible "Look Out For Me" indicator for my self on the bike! I already own a recently purchased and fitted Schmidt Edelux on my "Best" bike, so for my everyday shopping and jobbing machine, I thought I would go the B & M alternative. Having observed the output from both the Edelux and B &M Cyo 60, I am now guessing that both lamps share the same internal construction. They both put out virtually the same light intensity at the same speed and the stand light stays illuminated for the same time as well. The only difference is the metal construction and design of the Edelux. Can I suggest here to our cycling hero Brad Wiggins, that he has either this lamp or the Edelux, plus a dynohub, fitted to his road practice bike, to be seen by and prevent any more collisions with emerging vehicles! But to sum up now, the B & M Cyo 60 is absolutely eons ahead of (bar the Edelux) any previous dynamo based lighting that I ave ever owned.
B&M Cyo Iq

ConsFiddly ti fit
ProsBright, good beam shape, light weight
This headlight gives a bright beam with good shape. I am pleased with the results, a great improvement on my old Lumotec halogen, but I had a few unnecessary problems.

The Lumotec was supplied with 0.187" pushon connectors for the Schmidt hub. Fortunately I had some, but mine had insulators to wide to fit on the closely spaced terminals and I had to shave one down. B&M, why not supply terminals ready like the Lumotec??

The Cyo IQ has short wires ready to connect to a taillight. I cannot believe many UK cyclists will use a generator taillight, since battery ones last so long, and the wires are untidy to fit. The loose wires have bare terminals which need to be insulated. Why??

The bracket supplied with the Cyo IQ is formed from heavy round bar. On my Thorn bike, the brake bolt was just a little too short, so I had to rush out and buy a longer Shimano brake bolt to fit.

These complications are "par for the course" when fitting new bike components, but B&M managed to make the original Lumotec so much easier, I expected the Cyo IQ to go on more easily.

Now it is on my bike, I completed the Snow Roads 300, and gave it a decent test. I would compare the beam to dipped car headlights, brilliant!

ConsFiddly to fit
ProsVery bright
This is a really bright light. Hooked up to a shimano nexus hub dynamo, it's fantastic for commuting. The standlight is very handy when stopped at lights.
It is clearly designed to be fitted behind the brake bolt on a city bike. Fitting it to my mountain bike took a lot of ingenuity by Kevin of ezerider.com and the re-cycling of part of the mount for the battery light it was replacing.
Like David Stanton, I find the very square footprint of the light takes some getting used to. It is not as diffuse a light pattern as a normal filament bulb light.

Consappears to be square footprint
Proswhite light
This is a seriously bright light - white - it needs to be set at the correct height to get the benefit as it appears to shine as a square. best for really dark country lanes. quite easy to fit - but had to change the connectors for a Schmidt hub. Easy to use just keep it switched on and forget. Very light in weight. You may wonder how it produces so much light.

Hi,

With dynamo headlights the LED bulbs are not replaceable.

Thanks.
