Lights on your bicycle (pictures and lot of those!)

It would be fun to see how others illuminate their way where ever that might be.
I been using this setup for a good few years, but now I’m looking to make it just about perfect for my own use:

So it’s neutral white Fenix BC30 paired with BLF Special Edition A6 which has swapped 3000k XP-L Hi HiCRI. BLF on Fenix mount. (seems to be one of the best mounts with quick release and similar mechanism as in BC30),

And do they light up the trails:

I usually just use A6 on lowest setting when cycling through lighted areas and not even on darkest areas I usually need all light. So mostly both are on second lowest level unless there is a little more cautious spot going on.

Just BLF A6 on:

Never thought that I would like color temp low as 3000k, but it just seems to work. No glare, works better in rain, fog, but should I go even lower?
Fenix BC30 5000k will still wait good high cri replacement 3V 5050-leds so mixing it with 3000k makes nice looking light, but still a bit too white.

But it’s all about light pattern and this feels “almost” perfect. Fenix offers nice wide floody light and BLF A6 gives that further reaching spot and little cream to lights color.
My next step is to get extra bar so I can mount these little higher, because Fenix gives bad glare from front mudguard and I don’t feel like riding without those. Also I was trying to figure out what Convoy light or actually a pair of them would replace my BLF A6 with a little further reaching spot, but two of them connected to a single remote switch. Maybe something with GT FC40 or B35AM, but a bit more throw and beam pattern could even be a bit narrower if compared to A6. S2 has shallower reflector. Does anyone got anything under 3000k on their bikes?

Oh yes sure I do have helmet mounted Nitecore HC30 too IF needed.

Daylight, sure, fun too:

I seen people here mounting those huge things with SBT90.2-leds on bikes and that also looks sick.

After looking what Convoy has in store, I was thinking that M21B could be the smallest light that out throws A6 and it also has remote switch option (the most important to have in this setup). B35AM 4500k looks nice, but maybe 3500k would be even nicer or even lower? B35AM is available at 2700k, but how is it?

Here’s my Wurkkos WK20 mounted to a Ride1Up LMTD ebike, and a pic from this evening’s ride on the nearby multi use path.
