    LED front light for handlebar cannondale

    Hello.
    I've bought a cannondale bad boy 700.
    I would like to ask you if there is any led front light to embed into the handlebar, and where to buy it.

    Regards

    Check out the Planet Bike Blaze. It comes in both a 1 watt and a 2 watt version. You can find them on Amazon or just Google it. Decent little lights.

    Gadbi, no. I'm, personally, not familiar with any lights like that though I'm sure they probably exist.

    Other than plugs at the end of the bars, I haven't seen any incorporated into the handlebars. There's some that are mountable to the fork crown.

    Are you concerned about theft? Or do just don't like the aesthetic of a cluttered cockpit?

    Thank you for your answer. Well, it's an aesthetic matter. While surfing the web i've found that cannondale have produced a so called "headsight" to be mounted in the middle of the handlebar (i don't know The exact english term). But this item is no longer present in the cannondale site.

    Sure: The following is an ebay item in which you can see a picture of thr handlebaar with The light embedded http://annunci.ebay.it/annunci/bicic...opaco/17206723

    This is a link to an (italian) manual of the headsight (this is The name of the light, i think): http://cdn.cannondale.com/Manuals/20...uctions_it.pdf

    Regards

    What, you have an aversion to Google it for yourself? "cannondale headsight" returned:

    -Instructions.
    -One of the threads on various forums.

    From doing some reading, the battery was located in the stem. Google image search shows the light head was not inside the bar. Looks to have stopped production in 2007.
