Bikes: Some bikes. Hell, they're all the same, ain't they?

The weight issue is negligible, too. If you want to get wild about it, you can get a dynohub built with a carbon rim.

But, that's not relevant -- what's relevant is the weight of the lighting system. The weight of the dynohub (minus the weight of a regular front hub) and the weight of a typical battery pack seen on most worthwhile lights are basically the same, so, I'd say that the weight question is moot.

Yeah, that Toplight XS is what I had in mind to get (after browsing Peter White's and Harris Cyclery's pages), but the guy at the shop while I was in Germany last Christmas pulled a Selectra off the shelf and handed it straight to me. Three LEDs and a bigger reflector trumps one LED.
