What's a decent visibility light?
Hi all. I was browsing Dealextreme.com for LED flashlights. I'm looking for an inexpensive 'visibility' light (flash mode, wide beam) for the front of my bike. A flashlight with Twofish lockblock would be cool. No headlights needed yet - there's still lots of daylight when I'm out riding. However, this summer has been nuts for rain and the bikes I see with front white blinkies are much easier to see in the downpours! Down the road I'll probably commit to an overvoltaged halogen system but I'm taking baby steps here.
So, in light of dealextreme's dizzying array of very similar lights, is there one that stands out? Or is there a more bike-specific light I should look at? Example, the Planet Bike Spot.
