I've been searching around, and am completely lost. Some headlights range from 50 to 100, some from 300 to 500. I'm guessing the battery life/lumen count has a lot to do with it.

What do you all run, and can anyone point me to a good system for a fair amount of $? I really don't want to drop more than $150 bones on a light for the bike.

Also, is there some combination that would work? I.E. a light on the bike and wearing a light on the helmet?

Thanks.

I have a Turbocat dual source system comprised of one helmet light and one light I mount on my handle bars. The batteries aren't super light and the lights aren't super fashionable, however, I have plenty of light. I haven't ridden trails after dark. However, I have descended Lookout Mountain Rd. and had plenty of light for moderate speeds. Therefore I suspect they would provide plenty of light for trails. I highly recommend them. I can only imagine the amount of light two handle bar lights plus a helmet light would provide. That might defeat the purpose of riding at night.

not to sound like a broken record, but.....The Amoeba lights are easily the best deal going. Great lights with long run time and incredibly LIGHT. Best part - made by one of our own. Jay is great to deal with. I run a spot on my helmet and flood on the bars - this combo burries the old Dinotte setup I used to run.

I checked for his classified (was going to give you a link) but it's not up currently. Here's a thread on the Amoeba though:
