That's frustrating! Pat has a very bright light he uses on his bike, but it's much smaller than the one you're showing. It's some sort of LED thing that is blindingly bright, but is also very light weight. I could ask him about it if you'd like.

That is an LED lamp, and quite a seriously bright one, too - it's an Iq Cyo that puts out 60 Lux (
pictures of the beams here
) and is driven off the dynohub.
I just have rather funny geometry round the front fork & brakes, I think. Something to think about as and when it's new bike time :)

Ah, I see. I couldn't tell that from the photo. That's bright! Bikes are so complex these days! Pat rides a Cannondale mountain bike with street tires. (He has an arthritis problem, so he needs something that keeps him slightly more upright than a regular street bike.) It's constantly amazing to me how technical all the structures have gotten.
Not like the bikes I rode as a kid at all!

Modern hub dynamos and LED lamps are pretty amazing - they push out a lot of light, and as the rider I don't notice any rolling resistance from the hub dynamo at all.
