"Will second this. I have four bikes now with generator setups (three Shimano and one SON hub, all some flavor of IQ Cyo headlamp, three with wired taillamps too) and it can't be beat. You have a really good beam pattern and it's always…"

"I remember other threads here where helmet-mounted was seen as a problem, but i fully agree re: having the light up and visible to more drivers. And i really appreciate being able to point my light without pointing the whole bike too."

"Right on re. the lights.  Same now for cars to have the daytime running lights or headlights (I have the main headlights always on in my car (and it's been this way for a long time now with motorcycles) for the same reason."

"I think lights are underrated.  A study on cyclists in Denmark shows incidents of injury a 19% less frequent for cyclists who always use a light.  This was a designed study, not an observational study.  Mostly we see the latter…"
