HOW TO – Make a monster quartz halogen bike light

75-Below Handlebar Mounting Again

It was a dark and stormy night…and the 3-watt generator lamp was sporadic, cutting out altogether each time a whiff of snow happened to come between its roller and the tire. “There’s got to be something better,” the mad cyclist thinks to himself as he squints to make out the faint halo of light cast by the 3-watt bottle dynamo generator.

That mad cyclist happened to be yours truly, and the above situation real to life–and the inspiration for the MONSTER Quartz Halogen Bike Light!

The cost of this project was somewhere around $100. I say ‘around’ because I already had some of the hardware!
