I've done some forum searching for my needs, but i seem to just be peeling off more layers. I could easily spend hours on this and i'd much rather save my free time for riding.
For those with the knowledge who would be kind enough to help me, here's my situation:
I have a 24 mile commute each way, i leave at 6am so mostly dark this time of year. I'm into the sun going both ways (returning around 5-6pm). I ride a road bike with a messenger back. Currently i've got one of those blinking planet bike thingys on the back which is pretty good, but have never had anything in the front which i think is dangerous. Not so much for my riding, as i know the road very well, but for traffic which might be turning left against me.
Bottom line is a need a light on my bars up front, and would consider replacing my light on the back. I also need something that comes off easily as i lock my bike in a cage so its semi-secure. Light recommendations and places to purchase would be most welcome.
I really appreciate your help, as I really don't know much about this subject but want to ride safer.
