So now that it is getting dark at 6:30 and pitch black out by 7:15ish, id like to invest in some lights. I can't really put a budget on my safety but lets try and keep it under 300ish. I am looking for something super bright, and efficient. Weight really isn't an issue considering im not a 100 lb nimble racer. Today i went out at 5:30ish to do about 20 miles. 8 miles into my ride it was getting really dark so i turned back. By the time i got home i couldn't see two feet in front of my face, so id like to be able to ride as much as i want to whenever i want to. Plus it is nice and cool at night, woo.
