    Damon? Whos that? Arent we supposed to go by our "internet" names?

    I have the old trailrat with brick battery... its seriously as big and heavy as a brick. I also have Ummbikes light untill he comes and picks it up, and then i also have the digital evolution. All great lights.

    Thats a steal.. almost as cheap as my hookups....

    $89 huh?!?!?! Dang, they went up since I bought mine 3 years ago. I paid $59 on sale @ Performance. This one is a pretty good one though, not the brick(thats the road rat and not trail rat I believe) for those who are interested in a decent light for under a bill.

    I think those will mount on helmets? I have a couple of trailrats that I bought years ago and they mounted on helmets. they both finally died so I am in the market again...

    Performance has some pretty nice deals on lights. The 10 watt lights are nice for back up lights and light trail riding. I found its pretty easy to outrun a 10 watt light. The high output Halogen are pretty decent but they still pale in comparison to an HID. I think the cheapest HID is the Cygolite Z-Force Ni-Cad. With the 20% off and .99 shipping its $208(Washington) delivered from Perfomance. Pricepoint has a NR helmet HID for $299 which might be the next best deal.

    Yes, they will work with the helmet. You will need the mounting straps and a longer line. If you can spend a bit more, check out the Turbocat line up. They have some of the nicest lights out there for the money imo.
