    Coleman Max tri-color led flashlight

    Anyone ever play with this? Needed a light ASAP, and this was the best I could do locally. I ain't going to be off-roading or doing time trials or anything. Just need enough to keep from riding of the MUP that follows a creek or from riding off the edge of the road. After I prove to myself and the wife that this doable, then I'll beg to upgrade the lighting, though I'm not holding my breath:

    -Me: "I am wanting to get some more lights, and I'm thinking-"
    -Wife: "Why? You've been making do with what you already have."

    Well, I took it outside after sunset. Walking around it looks like it might just barely be adequate while on the bike. Now I just got to figure out how to mount it to the handlebars...

    Use an "O" ring or a large rubber band.
    I have made them from old tubes.

    Well, snagged a large rubber band from work. Tried to mount the light to the bars. I couldn't find a sweet spot. Then I decided to mount it to the helmet. Much better. Now just need to get a brighter one (with a proper mount) for the bike itself.
