best front blinky?
i ride just about 100% in sub/urban environments where i need a front-light to be seen.
it seems like a faster flash (to a point) makes it easier to be seen/noticed. i suspect this is especially true during the day and when drivers are just glancing at their mirrors.
the planet-bike 2W blaze seems cool, but the beam seems much tighter than necessary.
i've got a $10-15 cree flashlight with a nice fast blink mode and adjustable beam; but it's heavy, has zero light on the sides, and the mount is a PITA to get the light on and off.
i'd like something that's self-contained, uses ni-mh AA/AAA, reasonably priced, and good value.
any other suggestions? thanks!
