Those power beam lights are cheap yet awesome! I have one here in the UK.

I dont understand why "lights mounted on handlebars provide very little light".


Hi all,

@John: These lights are indeed cheap, but really good money for value ;)

@Chris: What I mean by that is that these small bicycle lights are very good if you want to be seen, but once mounted far away from the ground all its energy dissipates. If your light is closer to the ground you will, not only be seen but also see where you're going.


Mounting the light low allows you to see surface details because of shadows cast by objects on the road. The shadows get smaller the higher the light is mounted.
