Building up a new car-replacement ride. I was totally unaware how much I could spend on a good bike light!
Will be doing a daily commute in the pitch dark, often in heavy rain, with little or no street lighting. This will be probably the most important component of the rig; needless to say I don't want to muck it up. I'm a little overwhelmed with the options, and I need it by Sunday.
I've looked over the MTBR 2012 light shoot-out, which was informative, but I figure I'd troll the community for recommendations.
- A wide, even beam with minimal 'bright spot'.
- Excellent waterproofing.
- Shock resistance.
- Battery life.
- Happy to buy used.
Like I said, I can afford around $300. Will gladly do the footwork looking for deals on more expensive suggestions.
Any help would be awesome. I don't like this feeling of shooting in the dark on something so critical :X
Edit: Things I've stumbled on that look good:
