    bright headlights

    Hello bicycles.
    I have a question that would fit into a "gear and parts" section but maybe someone here would know..
    Is it possible to buy a ridiculously bright headlight, something as bright as car headlights for instance (not quite as bright realistically)? I really get freaked out about running into road-kill in the dark, but I love to bicycle at night, and I go touring a lot and don't like to stop.
    Any advice?
    -cheers-

    visit the commuting forum. one thread you might look at is called "total geekiness" and there are others about "really really bright headlight" or some such. I think the really bright ones are typically HID (high intensity discharge) lights with special Ni-Cad or NiMH battery packs. Niterider (google them) is one major brand.

    I have a Lupine Edison 10. Save your money, though--they cost a bundle.

    It's the brightest thing out there. I'm visually impaired, but the Lupine doesn't seem to know that.
