    lebac…zip ties can be easily removed if you stick a sharp pointed object
    in the locking mechanism and move the hook away from the tread

    Point light at the floor – that is what it is for – not to light a tree
    50ft away

    I hope that bicycle technology won’t go the same way as it was over 100
    years ago. They are already selling electric bicycles…Few more years and
    we may see bicycles with internal combustion engines… lol Safety
    technology – YES, Engines of any kind – NO. Bicycle should be powered by
    your legs and…hills? lol Keep riding!

    I’ll try that out. Also, where did you get the quick release for the light?
    Mine came with a plastic thing that clips the bike to the handlebars, but
    it feels very cheap.

    i agree but i do believe bikes need some degree of ultra modern lights,led
    lights are out of date and lazer lights are next.there to be tiny in size
    and easy on power and much crisper and whiter light.led lights never took
    off on cars in terms of headlights,audi kinda went there a little but
    unless you were well off you wouldnt be seeing them on a standard audi.the
    batteries for bike lights needs to be reduced alot.i love my mtb and mite
    replace it in 2013 with a newer 10000euro mtb.

    Good question! With this light you get best of both worlds. There is a good
    amount of flood light and huge amount of throw. You can also buy a lens
    made for older design MagicShine lights that is compatible with this light.
    It cost about $6 on Ebay. It will give you more rectangle shape of light.
    You will gain more flood, loose a lot of throw and some brightness, but it
    may work well for some riders.

    Got two of these for my night time downhill and singletrack rides. The
    light is awesome, I have one spot and one flood lense (aftermarket) and
    they work out great. Much better then my NiteRider Torch HID. Don’t get hot
    either. Only drawback is the mount, but some duct tape or zip ties and you
    are good to go!

    If you going for Baja 1000 race – you will need two of them, but for
    regular cycling rides – one is plenty enough ?

    How do you like the light so far? How long have you used it?

    Thank you! I’m glad you like it. I’m trying to keep my bikes clean all the
    time, but sometimes there is no time to clean it right away. I’m using WD40
    to clean my frames. Seems that dirt is not sticking like it used to.

    are so different?

    Bought mine from this guy, with fast 7 days shipping. Ask him for an extra
    battery ($7 or so with shipping with your light purchase)

    I’m extremely happy with my purchase. Highly recommended.

    That’s what I was referring to ? History likes to repeat itself, but we
    are already too fat and too smart to choose motorcycle over healthy, quiet,
    no fumes, and fun lifestyle. I know, I know… Don’t hate me just because I
    like bicycles more than motorcycle… We all make our own choices, and mine
    is better ?

    I just bought one of these with 4 CREE lights, and it’s 5200 Lumens. I love
    it. On high, the cats in my neighborhood have tried to look directly at it
    and they squint. It drives dogs nuts though, because they don’t hear you
    coming – they SEE you coming. LOL
