I made a few prototypes, (of which two are mounted on my mountain bike.) I have not had the time to get back to the bike light project yet.
On my bike, I mounted two Tri-Star bike lights, each putting out over 200 lumens. Each light weighs about 16 ounces with the bracket. I doubt anybody would need two of these things. I just did it to see how bright it would be.
I'm presently building a custom, one of a kind bike light, which will be housing 8 3 watt Luxeon Star LEDs, for a total light output capability of at least 576 lumens. That will be 24 watts, which is probably more equivalent to 48 watts from a halogen bulb. I'll be putting it up on eBay when I'm finished with it. It will probably not be light to be built in production. I will make it with the cabability of using 4 or 8 LEDs.
A lot of people have been buying my FT-3C flashlight, and mounting them on their handlebars. They say it's a great bike like. It has a 6 degree beam, and really throws quite far, yet it still has some side spill for close up viewing.
