150 lumen should be enough for trail riding, but for commuting on the road with traffic it is somewhat inadequate. Some of the commuting forum guys run upwards of 1500 lumen after dark. I'm at around 600 right now, and I will be upgrading this fall. The beam pattern looks fairly focused - for a handlebar mount I like to go with a flood, reserving the spot for a helmet light.
