Replaces bike-shop lights costing far more – 3W 60-Lumen 2-Mode Front White Light with Mount for Bike - Black + Silver (3*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Price - I bought 3 for $21.47
Two-mode - Think of them as "night" & "day"
Ubiquitous AAA batteries (included)
Cons:
Just enough light to be a 'real' bike light
Light does appear more blue than other lights
Not a lot of spill, but I haven't used it on a bike yet
Other:
I'm going to try this with 8274 and generic 9 led flashes which are all spill and no throw. I'm pretty sure this will make a pretty good $10-12 combo.
Bottomline:
If this was your first flashlight or bike light, you would wonder how anyone can spend $50 on one.
