I am lucky enough to be one of those people who lives behind a shop that sells bike accessories, as well as other amazing and wonderful things. I also had a bit of a dilemma: the path I take to get home is not very well lit, and my headlight was a dinky little thing I bought for $15 or so as more of a "be seen" as opposed to "see" measure. Living in the bay, this was fine. Here, I needed something beefier.
Thankfully, said awesome shop sells Portland Design Works accessories, and I had been eyeing the Cosmic Dreadnought for a while. 110 Lumens seemed like a good amount of light, and $65 seemed like a nice price. So I went ahead and ordered three.
Once I've used this light for more than one ride, I'll post a comprehensive review. But so far...HOLY CRAP I CAN SEE EVERYTHING.
