    Running 2 lights?

    I am running 2 lights, a 600 and a 1500. Where should the brighter one be mounted?
    We will never know our full potential unless we push ourselves to find it.

    Where ever they work best for you. Depends on the beam shape of each light, the terrain you typically ride, and so on. I run lights with true output (not marketing hyped output) with a 600 lumen in a pretty tight spot beam on the helmet and a 1500 lumen somewhat tight beam light on the bars. Because the bar light is not very floody (I don't like a floody light) I usually run it on medium. A floody beam would need to be on high more of the time. This is why lumen ratings are only marginally useful in deciding what lights to get.
