Showing my age here, but I almost always ride with my ancient Kirtland "Tour Pack" handlebar bag (clips onto two "antlers" that mount over the stem & extend foward near the brake levers). The bag is about 3 inches above the level of the handlebars (traditional drop bars--Radonnauer??). It seems that most headlights mount on the bars just L or R of the stem. Those would be obstructed by the bag &/or mounting frame. I'm not interested in helmet mount lights.
I don't ride at night too often, but since the SNCF broke my ESGE rear fender, the Shimano generator hasn't worked for either the front or rear lights--the ESGE's have an electrical element running inside the fender. So, I'm looking for a decent headlight (already have a separate battery operated rear light).
Any suggestions anyone?
