Some random light questions.

How many lumens should I be looking for in a 30$ish light? I need one that lets me see potholes at 15mph in time to react. If I get a flashlight, what's the best way to mount it? If I bike in freezing weather how do keep my batteries from freezing? Do I have to worry about my light during rain? What's a good taillight to buy? Yeah, I'm a noob.

If you are locked into that price range, I would recommend the Romisen RC-C8 II R2 Flood-to-Throw LED Flashlight.. Lots of battery options with this light, 1 x 18650/17670, 2 x CR123A, 3 x AAA batteries.. Longest output would be with 18650 cells but aaa work fine too. You can refine the beam to your liking, about 200 lumens total..

lockblock can be found here from us seller - 5.00 and free shipping -
