1.7 The Ultimate Homebrew Bike Light: Postscript


I've been using my lights for about a month now and I'm quite pleased

in daylight. The lights are rugged and the charging system works well. I
would make the following changes to the original design:

1- Use two spot lights ( ESX ) instead of a spot and a flood ( BAB ).
The flood light's output covers too wide of an area and is not as effective
in the forward direction as I would prefer.

nylon strap around the bag and the stem to help secure it.
