Light question
« on: October 10, 2017, 09:16:33 AM »
When running with a light on the handlebars and a light on the helmet where do you put the brightest light? On the bike or on the helmet?

User preference. If your lights are the same size, try it both ways.

Mine are not too far off in brightness. Wider beam on bars with a more focused beam on helmet.

Helmet light is always pointed where you look while the handlebar light brings your sight back to the trail quickly.

I've always ridden at night, including several races, with just a bright helmet light. I'd put the brightest light on the helmet as it will shine where you are looking, ... and where you want to go.  Currently run an old Light N Motion ARC.
