I had 61 white leds running on the bike tonight. Two 28 led flashlights against the
lower flat portions of my drop bars and one cateye EL300 up above.
I rode to a fireworks display, met up with a friend, then rode home. He had a 15
watt halogen system (apparently with a failing battery, it was running a little dim)
and then my setup.
It seemed to work well, the Cateye was aimed at the road so I could see where
I was going and what I was doing. The other two were acting more as ambient
light producers ("ditch lights" if you will) and allowed motorists to see me very
clearly I suspect - I was lighting up reflective street signs from two to three
Give it a try! I think next time I might try hose clamps.
