Dinotte 200L on the helmet
Exposure Toro on the bars.

I just won the Toro from a contest here, and I only have a few rides on it. It is very bright, seems to be great for the way I ride. I just don't have enough time on it yet for a proper review. I have no complaints on the Dinotte lights and would recommend them to just about anyone. I like that they run with rechargeable AAs. I would like a little more flood, but some of their other models are available with different lens options.

2 3W LED lights on the bars (directed a bit differently, so one of them works as a spot, the other as a flood) + 1W "miner's light" on my head. Works well for me, though I'd like a stronger spotlight for fast descents. Very cheap, as compared to more powerful lighting systems.

A couple of types depending on where I'm riding:-

1. Magicshine on the bars combined with homebuilt R2 x Leds as helmet light.

2. Magicshine on the bars combined with homebuilt XPG x 3 Leds as helmet light.

3. Magicshine on the bars combined with Magicshine on the helmet.

4. XPG x 3 Leds on the bars combined with R2 x Leds as helmet light.

Still building another light for bars; similar to M/shine.

What don't I like? The time taken to build them.

Several sets of DIY LEDs. Light output is great, cost to performance ratio is great.

Not so great: My DIY battery packs are sucky bodge jobs.

Just got Niterider Pro 600 Havent used it yet but the quality seems great. Cons--nice lights are pricey like all nice cycling gear.

Minewt

I'm very happy with Niterider Minewt lights. I have the single which is plenty for me. They also have a double if you want more light.

MagicShine on the helmet. That's all I need. Those lights are BRIGHT and they won't break the bank. Check out the "Light and Nite Riding" forum lots of threads.....
