After some time browsing the site, my bicycle gadget horizons have broadened considerably. I've now set my sights on the following lighting setup:
- Schmidt dynamo hub - German-made dynamo to power your lights that goes in your front wheel; doesn't weigh much, has little drag when lights on, almost no drag when lights off
- Light sensor - Turns your lights on when it's dark, even if you're, like, momentarily going through a tunnel or something
- Front halogen, rear LED - With capacitors that keep your taillight and an auxiliary light on the front lit when you stop
- Busch & Muller DIWA System - Senses when you're stopping, brightens taillight (just like a car), or turns it on for a moment if it's daytime
This would be so awesome. However, all that equipment together costs a good bit more than the entire cost of my newish bike, so I'll wait until I've been working for a while...
