Kdiehl: Thanks for the 600L mount description. A cam lever would be much easier to loosen and tighten than the (small-ended) screw on the L&M Vega, and I might not mind that. It's hard to position the Vega because as I tighten the mount after adjusting the vertical angle of the light, the vertical angle changes slightly during tightening so I have to actually anticipate this degree of change and build it into the angle I initially set. I sometimes end up adjusting 2 or 3 times before I get it right. 'Course, the Vega's output is low enough that a wrong angle can be pretty unforgiving, and maybe that wouldn't be an issue with a brighter light.
rm-rf: Thanks for the input. I've considered a dual 200L, but I don't want to double the handlebar real estate needed for a headlight. I'm pretty crowded up there sometimes, and want to economize on space if possible. From what I've seen online it seems that the 200L dual gives good output and a nice pattern, but I think I can get that from a single head. If I can't then I'll look at the dual more thoroughly.
