Newb needs light help......
OK, I really admire all of the DIY lighting that I have seen, and I think some of the high end setups are nice. My dilema is this. I have searched the forums here as well as cpf, dx, and some of the others and I have come to a conclusion as to what it is that I am looking for. I need lights for my bike. I think a red blinkie for the back will be fine, but what about for the front? I in no way shape form or fashion will be able to spend more money on a front headlight than my whole bike. I am buying a $300 bike and dont want to put a $399 light on it. Catch my drift? I have read a lot about the Fenix lights. when I went to check them out on the website, I noticed that what they really were, basically were flashlights. Well I have a Surefire 6P Original that I really like for the light that it puts out. Would this be suitable for what I need. I will mainly ride on a bike trail and probably only around dusk/dawn and during the day, so I dont really see a need for a train headlight right now, I dont think. But you guys are the pro's, I'm still new to the whole thing. Please chime in if I can use my Surefire and mount it to my bike somehow, or please suggest a reasonable alternative, and by reasonable I mean I am not wanting to spend more than 50 or 60 bucks on a flashlight to mount to my bike. I do like the thought of being able to use the light when off of my bike as well, so lets keep it in the form of a mountable flashlight. I really appreciate all of the advice I have received on this forum. Thanks a bunch.
