    Thank you. This is very practical and helpful. It would be great if you could include a photo to show how much the headlight portion illuminates the roadway ahead of the bicycle at night. I know it will not be tremendously bright, but still, a photo would give an idea of how well a cyclist can see where he is going.

    I'll see what I can do about that in the near future. Just need to borrow my roommate's camera. All I've got is my 2 webcams which are, obviously, not that great of quality.
