Bright sturdy headlight light
Can anyone recommend a decent headlight that won't fall apart at the first pothole or gravel path? I'm looking to spend no more than ~$50 or so, so recgargables are out. This would be mostly for local street riding.
I'm using an LED now, one of these:
It's better than nothing, but... well. It'd be nice to head closer to the "to see" rather than "to be seen." Thanks!
I'm using the Cats Eye HL-EL510. It only has one LED but it is very bright and so far seems pretty solid.
I'm very pleased, Ithink that this light may help you.
Here is some more info :
I would buy a light from http://www.dealextreme.com/ for $20-25 and then buy the two block fish mount from https://www.fenix-store.com/index.ph...7ff8004e81d316
total cost is under $50 so you can go get batteries.
or you can get one of those fenix flashlights as well, but it'll probably send you a little over the $50 budget, but still worth it imo.

Cateye el530 is probably your best bet. Its significantly brighter than the 510 and a huge step up from your current light. Light lasts around 9hrs on 4xrechargeable AA batteries. Very bright but smallish spot and good light spill.
One of mine survived a 30kph bounce down the road with just a few scratches.
Get a Cree Edition light from Fenix-store or dealextreme.com, then follow my mount guide at the bottom of:
