    Awesome, Thanks! However based on the Lupine forum, They may not be as receptive of the Lupine - Helios moniker

    Thanks though, one can only hope

    Once the Lupine - Helios is in place as your Head Light, the Edison can be used as shown for your tail light.

    Eye searing light in both directions

    For a discount (he started it ) you can have the rights to the "Death Star".

    An Edison 10 with a red lens from a $1 blinky over it. The worlds brightest tailight.

    I'm curious as to a BF discount. With dangers of fog and snow out there I am more any more leaning towards the rear death star idea mount. I am seriously worried about getting hit from behind as in the front I would highly doubt I'd get hit while moving slowing to see the car in front but from behind is my primary danger before the front. It would be nice if there is some custom reflector material for extra purchase to make that a serious 'back off' light should one be crazy enough to rear mount it. I don't mind carrying 2 spare batteries for day/night use. Hospital bills cost more. I think a ride in the ambulance I read once before costs like $250-300 just for the ride be it serious or not injury but just to pay for that express ride and the medical personals time. Ouch... that's something like $20/min ride should you arrive in 15mins to the hospital. Man makes 900 numbers look el cheap now.

    There is NO such thing as too bright on a bike. It'll wake the most distracted driver the heck up. Especially on epleptic (sp) strobe mode.

    ^ i fully agree! Drivers are so distracte dby their ipods, cellphones, coffee, music, fax machines etc etc etc while they drive. I think there is nothing wrong with a taillight that is brighter than the headlight. At some point i aim to build a tailight that uses a 150W h3 bulb and a focused reflector.

    you might want to consider a bunch of planetbike superflashes

    i used one by itself and cars changed a whole lane to avoid me

    they were more concerned at what the heck i was

    some cyclist kept trying to pull ahead of me because he was being blinded by the superflash

    i now run a pair under my seat and a separate third on my basket

    throw one on your handlebar far left side and one on your rear fender and the pair under your seat and cars won't even come near you

    instead of taking another lane, they might take another street

    "Eye searing tail light", "world's brightest headlight". This is like thinking I was all alone on the planet and then discovering other humans. Can we form our own religion?

    Every time we read a post where someone promotes less lighting or dimmer tail lights (so the poor cagers don't get blinded), let's call them infidels.

    I'm waiting for the Frederic and Barney lights. Hell, why not call the super uber bright one "Bamm Bamm" because it CLOBBERS the competition.
