A few nice bikes images I found:
The third frame shows my Yuba Mundo’s dynamo-powered light.
Taken with auto-exposure settings (sorry, not that objective, but we can’t manually control our eye’s exposure except by squinting) without flash.
You shouldn’t stop buying Planet Bike lights, but I think this light pattern and intensity is typical of most bike headlights. The Planet Bike light I have is not particularly great at magnifying the 1 watt LED. Newer models are better.
The Lumotec has the "IQ" design that points the LED backwards at a mirror – you get a stronger, easier to "spread" light throw this way.

Finished it on Saturday…. Crashed it on Tuesday at 2am riding home from a Lee Scratch Perry show (Fucking Amazing!). The bike is fine but I’m a bit broken. Now It’s sitting in my room being pretty for 6 more weeks or so till this broken finger heals and I can take this splint off.
More decorating to do before it’s truly done. All money put into it was from my economic stimulus check. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the governments ‘war for oil’ fuck-up money than to lower my oil use and support a locally owned bike shop. Big thanks to the guys and girls at Yellow Jersey. Best bike shop ever.
This is how it looked when I got it. I couldn’t even ride it home from the thrift store.
