    white set is on sale for 43 bucks plus shipping.


    they blink, take rechargable AAA's and turn off by holding the button for a second. also, they fit lots of widths of bars and posts. i can fit the front over my 31.8 bars around the section that also has a brake cable and bartape on it.

    short of the magicshine, these are the most impressive i've seen for the least money.

    magicshine tail looks awesome, and the front isn't bad either. i have a P7-D emitter on a flashlight sometimes i attach to my helmet.

    Brigh LED Headlamp on head/helmet.
    Superflash or similar on seat post.

    For distance riding Magic Shine on the front with a planet bike blinker below the seat clamp.
    For city riding I throw on my magic shine rear tail light.

    That is 700+ lumens on the headlight and 200+ on the tail. When cars see you coming they think you are a motorcycle. It is awesome to have them actually stop.

    That being said next season I am going to break down and get a dynohub front wheel instead of relying on battery packs.

    i like pdws stuff, but the superflash is already really bright even with lots of city lights and has more than triple the battery life of the radbot. i do like a one watt headlight over a half watt.

    if i didnt have lights and didnt want to helmet mount, id probably try the boomer. it too gives up battery life to the superflash, but the attachment is nice.

    i think the height and directability of helmet mounting make it the best option if you can get with the aesthetic or lack thereof.

    Here is the 900 lumen front light (think Motorcycle light brightness), and the 50 lumen "blackburn flea" on the helmet. Yeah, the handlebar mount is 20 times brighter, so the flea is kinda redundant and good for a backup/spare.

    probably one of the twofish blocks: http://www.twofish.biz/bike.html

    i ran an ld20 like this for years 'til the flashlight crapped out, then replaced it with another cree light of similar specs (not nearly as nice as the ld20, but much cheaper)

    In the back is a PB superflash clipped onto my belt, or my bag if I'm wearing a bag. Knog beetle in the front (butt-useless for illumination, but good enough to be seen).

    For longer road rides that are going to be on less well lit/higher speed roads I'll attach a second superflash to the back of my helmet and throw the magicshine on the front.

    I too use to think the PBSF was bright till it broke after just 8 months of ownership, it just stopped working and PB never sent me a new one back under warranty nor respond to my e-mails. Then I bought a Blackburn Mars 4.0 and that light is far brighter then the PBSF and it's made out of better plastic, but I've only had it for 5 months so long term durability is not in yet. The one thing I did discover about the Mars 4 is that the battery life on steady is about 15 hours and about 50 on flash, though it's difficult to guage real well; but I don't care since I use rechargeable bats and I charge them after every 3rd or 4th ride anyways. I wish someone would do a comparison of the Mars 4 with the Radbot 1000. By looks alone the Radbot appears to be poorly constructed like the PBSF, but I would have to see one in person to judge that adequately.
