About Rear Lights
Almost all bicycle rear lights use LEDs instead of filament bulbs as they are more reliable and use much less battery power, whilst also offering much higher levels of brightness. Used in flashing mode, they are very good at attracting attention from other road users. It's advisable to use at least two rear bike lights, a common configuration is one flashing and one in constant, this is highly advisable just in case one stops or becomes obscured.
In order to cycle on the road it may be a legal requirement in your country to use a light certified to a specific standard or an international equivalent. Most but not all lights sold on Wiggle are certified and labelled with a European CEN standard. Please check your country’s requirements to see if this is sufficient and if necessary contact the manufacturer to see if this light has been additionally certified for your country. Strangely some of the very best lights are not legal on their own and should be used with an additional legal backup light.

Magazine reviews for Cateye TL-LD610 LED Rear Light
Review from Cycling Plus
The old Cateye LD600 was a great rear light, and the LD610 is the logical evolution of that design. Powered by two AAA batteries housed inside a well-sealed and well made unit its light comes from five LEDs each with their own lens 'nest'. The Flex-tight mounting as found on other Cateye lights is quick and simple to use, not to mention secure and durable. The sealed rubber switch requires you to push and hold to turn it off, meaning you cannot accidentally kill the light - single pushes simply cycle between the flashing or constent modes. Witht eh LEDs mounted further out than the old LD600 this light is more visible from wider angles, and also offers longer run times; we managed just under the claimed run 30 hours of constant light with 29 hours and a few minutes, but longer than the claimed flashing time of 60 hours with just over 61 hours.
One of the best rear lights you can buy
Review from Bikeradar
One of the best rear lights money can buy, though it comes at the cost of only just over 60 hours of run-time.
The power button turns the light on in legal ?ashing mode, with a further single touch to cycle through constant then two further flashing modes.
You press and hold to turn off so no accidental blackouts. Cateye's excellent Flex-Tight mount is a breeze to install and will fit both seatstays and seatposts of any diameter.

Loads of light & excellent construction & sealing make this the best-performing rear light, if you don't mind the slightly short run time.
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
cateye say the attached bracket (below) fits the LD600 and I've got it holding my LD610 so they must be the same.
thanks to cateye for sticking with the same bracket size for years & years, I can swap my lights easily between 2 bikes without buying extra parts :)
The bracket can fit vertically and horizontally. The light can also be installed in the bracket, vertically or horizontally irrespective of which way the bracket is fixed to the bike.
Buy one - I did. Superlight and lots of different flashing patterns.
I use the rechargable batteries, much cheaper.
Does anyone have some really simpleton instructions they could share with me, it will need to be back to basics for me to grasp it I think!!
The cable/strap (which has a thread on it to match the collar) wraps around the seatpost and back through the body of the mount, then the collar screws onto the cable/strap to secure the mount nice and tight.
If you have thrown out the screw-on collar you may have to get another mount - they're about $10 and available separately.
If you've thrown out the packaging - you may have thrown out the tightening washer as well !
hope this helps
On the end of the cable that you use to secure the light fitting there should be like a little nut. You should be able to unscrew this to open up the cable and then screw it back up around the bike fitting.
If this doesn't make sense let me know and I will take a video of it.
They should get you through.
wheel ... not so much a cable tie as a jubilee clip :)
I bought this as the newer system is stupid, fiddly and doesn't suit non-traditional seat tubes/seat stays.
