Handlebar lights

Cateye HL-500II - In my case, two of those on the handlebar as backup. But those lights are also well known in the Randonneuring scene as being excellent small lights. Lots of people used two of those to make it completely through PBP.

As of October 2004 I now use two Cateye HL-EL500. This light is a LED light that has a significant longer battery run time than the HL-500II, but about the same light output. It is the first budget LED light I can recommend. The previous EL300 in my view didn't provide enough light and therefore was not recommend as the only source. Take a look at the new EL500:

Helmet light

The "Light & Motion Arc HID" light provides a tremendous amount of light. The rechargeable batteries have a run time of approx. 3 hours and are somewhat heavy. 3 batteries usually brought me through a complete night. I used this light during PBP 2003 and it really helped not getting tired so fast. During the Florida Brevets I also was known to have one of the brightest lights.

They now have a Li-ion version with a battery with significant less weight: http://www.bikelights.com/Products/arc_li_ion.htm

Helmet reading light

The "Princeton Aurora Tec" is a great reading light with a pivoting head that can be adjusted to different angles. In the low setting it has a run time of more than 100 hours. During night rides I leave it on all night in low settings. With this I can read the cue sheets, computers and the GPS. A great light.

Wheels

In PBP 2003 I still used Campy Proton wheels. Now I use wheels which Steve a friend of mine build. They are very sturdy, with a softer ride and designed for riding longer tours. They hopefully will make it to PBP 2007.
