gomadtroll, I'm curious if the area 1-4m in front is really dark with the IQ Fly or simply less bright. If I see a pothole in the hotspot earlier, can I still follow it with my eyes when it's just in front, or does it simply disappear in the dark? I'd keep the light on the fork crown (with 26" wheels on my LHT--that's what you got it, isn't it?), so this should help a bit. BTW, two E3s sound like a great option but sadly price is an object. :-)

I have a 62 cm LHT. I use the Son hub for half the year, summer in Alaska doesn't require lights :-) If you are looking at the bright part of the light while riding stuff does 'disappear in dark' in front of the bike, at least for me Its a pity you can only run one headlight with the Lumotecs. I think if I only had one light it would be handy to see in front of the bike on some of my routes. Of course once the snow hits here all lights improve.
