As best I can tell, I think that the DToplight is about as bright as one of the LEDs in the Cateye. It's visible around to the sides but is the brightest straight back of course, since the Cateye has LEDs on the sides I guess it's better for that too. Really, I think that it makes a nice addition to the Cateye, down on the fender I get good separation between the lights, the Cateye is blinking and the DToplight is always on solid. If I just wanted one dyno taillight (and no battery light) for randonneuring I think I would like to try out the DToplight senso multi assuming I had a rack.Originally Posted by Michel Gagnon
You're right about the headlight, mine is the DLumotec Oval Plus. I picked it so I wouldn't have any problems with burnt bulbs but you really can't use it to see by. It's really just to help be seen by cars. The Schmidt suggestion is a good one if I needed to go long distances at night.
I was actually thinking about using the extra connections on the headlight to run wiring to the back of the bike where I could plug in a trailer. I have a Bob but I've been thinking about getting a Wike or Doggytote trailer for my Aussie cattledog and having a wired taillight on it would be nice.
