Love the beam / driving combo, which would give me the perfect light for drv. here in Europe, but need that dimming capabilities from lets say 10..20% to full incl. a highbeam bypass...
All that with a waterproof poti of course :)
Keep in mind that to dim an LED you need a PWM Dimmer (Pulse Width Modulator), not a regular potentiometer.
Additionally it's nice to have the high beam bypass so that you can run the LED dimmed with the low beam, but they go to 100% power when the high beam is turned on.
Baja Designs, Skene Designs, and ADVMonster all make a PWM dimmer w/ High beam by pass. I have used all three and find the ADVM one to be the simplest.
