Dinotte website is now updated

Check out the Extreme Lighting Solutions sections!!!!

new TRIPLE amber light, single amber light, triple red tail light and headlights!

http://store.dinottelighting.com/sha...unt2=313651680



i think my ideal bike light setup will be:

for the front:
- 2 triple amber front lights
- 2 XLS triple white lights
all set on strobe

for the back:

- 2 triple red extreme tailights
- 1 triple amber light
all set up in a triangle pattern, with the beams pointing straight back and 1 degree to the left, at eye level.

ok ok ok we get it that dinotte has bright tail lights


but if you think you need 'headlight bright' for a taillight there is something
wrong with your perception. you should set some lights up at night and then get in
the car and drive down the road, and then drive back, from 2 miles, and see if you
think it is bright enough or too bright. just saying. a serfas 9 year old LED with optics,
or planet bike superflash, is wicked bright already.

but hey if you wanna flush 400 bucks on a taillight go nuts

This is my ideal setup



6000 lumens of light. If only the battery technology could be advance enough to be smaller.
From here: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=319560.


One day, when 2000 lumens can be packed into one single LED die driven at 1A. That's the time when I'll be upgrading to my next led build.

not only did i weep tears of luminous happyness, i can help you achieve that goal of brighter...head over to candle power forums www.candlepowerforums.com and register, then show the experts there your setup. They had LEDS that will make that light you have look like a candle.

Cheers!

DAYTIME VISIBILITY!!!!------>>>> My safety is first priority!

You should set some tail lights up during the daytime and drive down the road and then drive back from 300 feet the super flash is hard to see in the day time. Now something like the dinotte xls tail light could be a different story. I know my dinotte AA tail lights gets notice during the daytime. This from multiple comments I've had from different drivers.
