OK, so winter is here for a while! It's dark at 5pm! I just borrowed a friends Night Rider Evolution light system and had a blast!!! Never understood why someone would ride in the middle of the night before. Now, I realize 2 things. 1- you can start a ride while the sun is setting and not have to give a rat's ass what time it is or how much further it is to the car, will you be able to see? This makes for the opportunity to see some spectacular sunsets. 2- I actually rode my bike on technical singletrack in the pitch black of night with no moon! It was very exhilerating! The light really works, and works better than I had imagined it would!
So here's my question! I liked the Evolution, but its $200. Does anyone out there know of a "SOLID" lighting system that I should consider for more, or less money than this system! I also realized how nice a headlamp would be, but who's got $400 layin' around these days?
