The change of seasons has meant more time spent riding in the dark. So I've recently boosted my lumens. I'm undecided about which settings to use. I hate the flashing mode. Seeing these come at me on the trail just makes me crazy. On the other hand, I also can see how a single steady beam could simply blend into all the other lights people see out there on the roads, especially on our busy city streets.
What's your take? Do you better notice flashing lights or steady beams?
