    To me, $500 buys a "decent" bike and $1,000+ is the lower limit of nice bike territory. Around here, a $1,000 used car may barely run, or at the least has major repair expenses likely in the next...

    To me, the beam is a good compromise - not too narrow and not too floody. Much better than my previous PB Blaze 2-watt helmet light. I've never taken a beam shot, but I'll give it a try.
