The Dinotte. Go directly to Dinotte. You can get the 200 lumen version instead of the 120 that is listed on Nashbar for $40 more or delete the batteries and charger if you already have them and get the more powerful light for $20 more. If you ask them nicely they may even throw in an extra battery holder. If you are going to use it as a helmet light you might want to consider the version that has the mini-tail light.

I have a buddy that purchased the original helmet/bar/taillight combo in Li-ion. They offered an upgrade package to increase his power in both headlights from 120 lumen to 200 lumen and longer lasting batteries. He liked them before and even more now.

Or you can do this:
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5971

This looks a bit better, but it will rival a TriNewt. Only catch, is that it accepts CR123A's.
PTS and Wolf Eyes are releasing a Thunder, which is a Tri-Cree, however, it will accept 18650's battery.

Boo-Yah!
