NiteRider Sol

Just a quick review here. I like it. It is relatively light. It burns for about 4 hours. It is bright enough to ride home safely after the sun sets. It is not bright enough for me to go 40mph and still allow me to see and miss obstacles in the road. I keep it sub 30mph and it is fine and better at 20mph and below. The TriNewt would be my ultimate light but I can't justify the cost--around $400. Performance recently had the light for under $100 (and they still may) and REI sells it for near the same price. For commuting this is a great option and I feel much safer with it on.
