    Lights Review?

    hi.

    has anyone seen a website where lights have been compared? i came across a bike shops' website where they showed what each light looked like on a basement wall. To me it helped a lot on deciding which is best (and for what my wallet). i just can't find the link, has anyone seen anything like this?

    HIDs are king but for me, the price is scary. what system besides HID lights seems as bright and big(?) as a HID light. I basically what "bang for my buck" for under $200. Is that possible?

    Also what are the hidden expenses to these lights? The bulbs? The extra batteries?

    All responses are greatly appreciated.

    Check out the old review on this board for reviews of HID systems

    For LED systems check out :

    or http://www.gearreview.com/

    He has probably the best comparisions on the web.

    The only other thing that will be as bright as HID but <$200 is a DIY LED, eg a triple or quad Seoul or Cree.

    Here is a test of various LED and HID lights from the latest Australian MTB magazine:
