I was reading some other threads about using flashlights as headlights and thought about using two $15-20 flashlights (I haven't decided on anything yet, and I'm not sure how to compare light outputs). Is it realistic to get something that would allow me to see debris on the road at/right before sunrise for this price? I could go higher but don't want to spend more than $30 per light.
As for the mount, most people recommended lockblocks, which seemed to be around $15 for two which seemed expensive considering the flashlight itself would only cost twice as much. Has anyone tried fashioning something out of velcro or rubber bands or something? Would something like this be stable enough for the light to not fall off or constantly shift while riding?
