    Generalizing, IIRC, my experience with two earlier Garmin Edge models is that the display top item will be larger than the others if there are an odd number of items and the same if there are an even...

    stem mounted headlight

    smallet: English "steam" is пар in Russian if Google translate gave me the right word.

    I think you're interested in a "stem" mounted headlight. Unfortunately I don't know of any to suggest.

    That old battery is probably replaceable, at neither great cost nor effort.

    If anyone's interested, Google is your friend. Perhaps under $10.

    Most of the mirrors I notice around here are mounted on the handlebars.

    I happy with my Third Eye® Hardshell Helmet Mirror mounted on the left side of the visor. It's steady and provides a good...

    Ten reviews at Amazon give that model a 3.9 rating with a spread from 1 to 5 stars.

    You can order the charger separately from Peter White. Or order the whole set and get the batteries also for maybe not so much more (I don't remember).

    The plug adapter just let's you use the...

    Short thoughts on food for long rides:

    about 300 calories per hour
    easy to digest
    real food is okay - gels and other sports foods can become less appetizing over hours

    Just to note -- the reviewer used the product at temperatures from 0 to 10 C; the brand claims the product is appropriate at temperatures from -30 to 20 C.

    Regarding the other human being you encountered: good to be aware and on your guard. But don't assume that every person who looks sketchy to you or even to the police is out to mug you because...

    ^ I agree with all your points. More lumens + better shaping of the beam towards the road + side visibility = a better light than any I've owned or read about.

    I think the main factor with my not...
  15. The Philips Saferide...

    The Philips Saferide and Busch & Müller Ixon IQ Premium both claim 80 lux. So the B&M has roughly the same output as the Philips. Others can address how they use that light. The Supernova Airstream 2...

    Just my observation ... I was persuaded by posts in this forum to buy the Busch & Müller IXON IQ Premium. I don't find it bright enough to be a primary or solo light in my riding environment at...
  17. Or a dynamo system

    Of course, if you went with a dynamo-powered headlight, you would get the automatic on/off feature you'd like, and there are no batteries to run down. I don't recall reading about dynamo-powered...
  18. Cygolite Metro 360 USB

    Since we don't have any suggestions yet, I'll bring up a post from a few weeks ago. I don't own a Cygolite headlight myself, but I ride with someone who does, and I'm impressed. At circa $50 they...

    I thought the ongoing Garmin 800 deal at Newegg for $279 was pretty good. In capabilities the 800 is roughly between the two models you mentioned, but maybe does what you need.

    I agree about putting most of the light on the road. But not 100%. I want persons whose eye level is above the road to clearly see my light. I want to put some light onto traffic signs, and on parked...
