Road bike lights

I need to get a front light for my road bike. I am looking for something that isn't bulky and lights up the road surface and not just one that allows you to be seen.

Any suggestions???


mate, I just run one of my Ayups on my handlebars with a 3 hour battery which fits snugly on my stem.. Its like daylight on my 5am Tuesday starts around Akunas bay.
For traffic, I just have a blinking cateye light...

That is the difference between a 'seeing' and 'being seen' light I suppose.

Ay Ups are used by quite a few roadies I ride with...
They usually have 1 or 2 blinking red lights, either on the helmet, seat post or rear stay.
