    What's your light set up?

    I'll start.

    Tri newt bar and Amoeba helmet light. Couldn't be happier. Extra battery on the amoeba gives me that feeling of security. What are you guys running?

    Amoeba spot on the helmet, Amoeba flood on the bars - I love the set-up and love the fact that can be seen from outer space

    Cygolite Pace 135 on the bars and Blackburn System X4 on the helmet. Not the brightest but works well enough for me to not involuntarily hug trees in the dark.

    There's that light guy, with it in his avatar you know... surprised he hasn't jumped on this...
    But I think I'm going to build something for the handlebar out of two of these:

    ...and some stuff. I got inspired when I was looking at the Dinotte 400L and thinking "why the hell does this cost so much?" I'll order them soonish and let you know how the ghetto-fab goes...and that's fabrication, not fabulous. With those reflectors it'll be a little spotty, but all materials and batteries should be about $40.

    Amoeba on the bars (flood) and then a lights n motion Stella (spot) on the helmet. Obviously with thet.i.t.s. rides they get alot of use. No complaints other than the battery on the stella is not huge but quite a bit bigger than the amoeba batt.

    What i would be curious is to have a weight comparison for all of the above mentioned.

    Happy Night riding look for next weeks t.i.t.s. night ride

    Yeah, too busy building lights last night out in the shop! I am ready to play now.

    I run an Amoeba spot on the helmet




    and my floody little friend "The Troll" on the bars (because I can)




    ****Disclaimer**** - These lights are only to be used when size, performance, and customer service (local!) are of a major concern to the rider

    The Amoebas are great and I may get one this Fall but I use a Lupine Betty on the bar and a Lupine Tesla on the helmet.

    Too bad I didn't find scar and the Amoeba's before I ordered mine... but I do love the ones I have. Ay-up narrow beam on helmet and intermediate beam on my bars.

    Too many lights to list, but here are my favorites

    Been running just this on my bar


    Just recently completed this one...but now it's light out so long, it's sat mostly untested

    +1 on the dual-Amoeba setup, spot on helmet, flood on bars. I could actually get by in most instances with either one on it's own, but with the two combined even my old-man eyes get me by ripping around on fast singletrack in the dark. And the customer service thing is no joke either, that scar dude is alright... Lots of neat little options since the kit is custom.

    They are small and light enough I have also been stuffing one in the pack if I ride an evening and want a light handy just in case things take longer than expected. I think the quality is better than other big-company lights I have bought retail. Good stuff.

    Lupine Tesla on the helmet and any extra moonlight.

    Love the lights...actually had several comments from other riders commenting on the blinding light coming from the Tesla at Matthews Winters a week ago...definitely validated the purchase.

    Running a Light & Motion Arc on the helmet and an Amoeba Flood on the bars. The Amoeba light is a great bang for the buck, and extra batteries are small and cheap!
