I live in a small college town. I bike year round with my winter biking basically being running family errands, shopping etc. I want to expand my comfort level with night riding with a goal to eliminate one of our two autos.
I Currently use:
A Trustfire P7 3 mode that I run on strobe during the day.
I also have a 3 LED Planet Bike Beamer as backup and do run it as well.
On the back I have the Vetta TSL - C
I just ordered some SpokLits from NiteIze for side visability.
I would like to be able to, "Greet" automobiles when I am at a stop sign or light using a helmet mounted light.
---I would like a flashlight that uses the 18650 recharagble battery.
---I would like a light weight unit.
---In an ideal world, there would be a red or amber light on the back. (I am open to suggestions on another separate unit as well.)
What advice might you folks have for this type of application?
Ordering from Deal Extreme takes forever, if there is reasonable alternatives I would rather move a bit quicker.
