    Lights.

    I'm lined for some nighttime rides this year including some 24hr enduros. Reading the reviews the L&M Arc Cabeza (HID) lights rate very highly but at a price. And considering it comes only with one light I'd ideally like a system that has two.

    If I were to opt for this lighting system can you connect accessory lights to the loom as well?

    Are the lights available separately?

    How does the battery pack mount? I have a Cannondale Gemini so there are no lugs for a water cage so that kind of battery mount is not an option. I'd need something that could strap to the downtube but not in such a way as to occlude the cables.

    Has anyone used this lighting system and switched?

    Are there other lighting systems you'd recommend? Money is not really a restriction but there is a point where you can pay more and get less.

    Advice appreciated.

    Make sure you check out Jet Lites.

    http://www.jetlites.com/

    They put together excellent lighting systems at very good prices...but price isn't the limiter. There systems are top notch. I've been using one of their systems for over a year now. If you call, Jim will help you set up a system specificially for your needs. They also support racing with things like battery rentals, so you can have extra batteries for a 24hr race.

    Thanks chuckfox. Unfortunately I live in that cesspool on the other side of the pond called England. I'll look for something you suggested in this side of the world.

    Ever considered a Schmidt Dynohub? Std equipment for long Audax events.
