I love my Kona Jake the Snake. It's an awesome commuter. With road tires, fenders and a quick-release rack trunk, it makes commuting a no fuss affair......
.....except for tonight. I arrange my work day so that I ride home while it's still light out. Today, however, I left at 4PM, and thought, no problem, I'll just stay on the MUP. Problem was, while my PB and Mars blinkies worked great on the rear, and my two forward blinkies (mounted on my front fork) worked fine for letting people see me coming, I couldn't see shiat. As long as I stayed near some street/trail lighting, it was OK, but once I turned to parallel the main road, I was blinded by oncoming traffic, and couldn't see the trail at all.
While I may come up with a different strategy for the oncoming traffic, I need some decent forward lighting. The helmet light I can figure out, but I need a light setup that will work with my cross levers. The stem on the bike is occupied by my Garmin Edge, so I'm looking for something that will fit and not interfere with the brake levers.
The Dinotte setup looks like it might work, but does anyone have experience finding a good light that will fit on a set of drop handle bars with cross brake levers?
