In strange position of trying to start commuting in the winter. Yeah, I know it is not spring, but if can make it thru one winter should be able to make it year round. Won't start for about another 2-3 weeks as I need to get in better shape yet, and get the bike ready for commuting.
I've done some research on bike lighting and trying to stay within the $80 to $120 range, it seems like the best bang for the buck is Light and Motion Commuter light.
Climate data for Nov/Dec/Jan
Morning Low: 23F, 16F, 15F. Darkness in am: 30-45 min. Darkness in pm: 30-60min.
Thus I need at least 100 minutes of light burn time. With the colder temps, this could be challenging; especially if I get a flat.
What do you think? Is the L&M commuter the best buy, or is there something else I should consider? I want to be able to travel safely at about 15-20 MPH and both see and be seen.
