    Same here, I loved the Magicshine when Geoman used to sell it at around $85. Now they offer the Magicshine 900 with the German battery at a slightly higher capacity battery. They are selling it for almost $110 not including S/H. Time will tell if that price difference will be the deal breaker.

    My MS on my bike since been replaced with a Gemini Titan light. I like it much better than the MS. I put my MS on my MTB backup commuter bike and it just sits in the garage these days. Time will tell how well the performance this Titan will hold up, but so far it has been very good to me.

    [QUOTE=AdamDZ;12230942]Deore XT dual action shifters, MagicShine x2, AirZound on the right (within thumb's reach), Incredibell (on the left, upside-down, under the bar so I can easily ring it with my index finger), Ergon grips, Stem Captain clock. MagicShine batteries and AirZound bottle are in the front panniers.

    I like to have everything important within reach without having to take my hands off of the grips. That's why I like those dual action shifters, they save lots of space on the handlebar and allow to have gadgets like the bell and the horn right next to the grips for instant reach, since there are no separate shifters taking up space next to the grips. The bell lever is exactly where a shifter lever would normally be. They also allow to shift while breaking, so you can shift to larger cog while braking so you're not stuck in a high gear when stopped.



    Are the dual action shifters brifters applied to flatbars?

    I love the clock on the stem cap! Is it just a watch stuck on there or is that a bike specific product?

    colleen, thank you for the more detailed pictures. I can make out more but still not everything. It must be my eyes. I have trouble finding my black gloves among all the other black garments we have in our foyer bench.

    And thank you for the info on lights. I bought a Blackburn X4 and am not satisfied. I can't really see by it, and it cost $110 or so. What's better about the Titan than the Magicshine? The Magicshine you speak of is on special for $100 right now.

    Indeed it looks like Geoman did lower their price on the MS900 with OL 4.5ahr battery. This must have happen between the time of my last post. At $100, that seem much better and more competetive.

    There are several thing I like with my Titan. First off, it has a much better blink pattern that is useful. I have yet tried a new MS900 from Geoman, so I cannot say what is the blink pattern on the current Magicshine they sell. The second thing I like is the battery life. Gemini system last 4hrs with their battery pack that is rated at 5ahr. I do get very close to the 4hr mark. This is about just what I need when I run it with my MS tailight. It gets me by for a whole week without having to recharge. Lastly, I like the color of the LED of the Titan over the Magicshine. It has a more white tint and less greenish. Again, I do not know for sure how this compare to the a newer MS light as there's always a possibility that they may have improve on that, but so far I have yet to hear any difference in the LED tint. I did a review of the Gemini Titan light and for those that are interested in it, you can read more about it here.

    To kingnutterick,
    Richard,

    The handlebars are/were made by ITM Selego, an Italian company. I got them several years ago, from Ben's Cycle. I don't think anyone is selling them now, though you might look in Europe. Koga Miyata is still selling them on their Traveller touring bike. http://www.koga.com/us/bike.asp?coll...tid=&id=413916. Nice bars with lots of hand positions and extra bar underneath for lights and such. I hope you are able to find one. I paid $169 for mine. Hope this helps.

    Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth.

    Yeah, basically the same concept. Except, because of the different position, to release you don't have that smaller lever, you just lift the entire main lever by flicking your palm up (it would be hard on a drop bar). That and since there is more space to play with, they don't have to be so tightly packed as brifters, and that's what (my guess) makes them a lot cheaper too.

    Got a nice "upgrade" on the dashboard. Removed the reflector too.

    Shimano 105 Black brifters would help clean it up the look more..hmmmmmm
