    Lightbulb Just Ordered a Dinotte 600L and 140L Combo.



    I just ordered a Dinotte 600L and 140L combo... I really didn't need either, but with the parity of the Canadian dollar, I just had to

    I'm not sure how often I'll use the 140L, however just could not resist the combo price of this unit. I'm more interested to see how well the 600L works, and hope it isn't much of a hassle to use daily with the separate battery bag during my daily dark winter commutes. Currently my Planet Bike Alias HID is so slick and easy to use for daily commuting. I think I just wanted a new toy.... I think

    Direct from Dinotte


    I also ordered the 600L with the standard lens rather than the wide... If I need more light I'll just add a Wide later for the wicked Duals

    Great post 2many, it totally conveys the sense of abandoment I actually feel slightly guilty ;-)



    I do love Betty, but for $500, I get a killer combo, that is good bang for buck.

    I suppose I could have went all out and chose Betty, but thats a significant investment at nearly 2x the price.

    Wow, One of the great HID users on BF.net has fallen for Dinotte.

    I can't wait to hear your review.

    I think you will like the 140L taillight as well. If nothing else you can add it to your current lineup and use it on full instead of flash. Although I found that after having one I could remove pretty much all of my other blinkies.

    Yes this is a must I'm wondering about the 600L beam pattern. If the beam is tight with little waste of the light out to the sides. My Lights + Motion HID wastes a bunch of light to the sides. If the beam pattern is tight I'll buy the 600L even if it's only 600 lumens compared to the L+M at 675 lumens.

    ViperZ Enjoy your crazy bright tail light and new head light.

    It will be interesting to see which one gets the most use


    The more I think about it, the more I'm pumped about this 140L as well

    About the only reservations i have at this time is it is very quick and convenient for me to remove my Planet Bike HID and Super flash each day as I lock the bike up. I'm hoping the Dinotte set ups will surprise me and not any more cumbersome as it seems on paper.

    I gave a bit of thought to the beam pattern as well. The pictures I seen of the 600L standard does look like a tighter pattern. I thought I use lights like this typically when there is snow on the ground, as such will get more than enough light reflectance to make up for the narrow beam. Time will tell...

    Very cool, ViperZ. This combination has made my very short list of "possible future purchases" in bike lights. Love it.

    Just use the HID, the Dinotte and other lights at the same time.

    If motorists think a supernova is travelling slowly through the area so be it.

    1200 Lumens up front...? That sounds liek a great Idea


    However I think 2many still has me beat (looks for that picture with all the headlights on)

    I just ordered their standard model headlamp system, the 200L. I want to be ready when the days get shorter here in a few weeks. Can't wait to try it out and do some serious night riding.
    I've been doing a lot of research and lurking for the last few weeks and this seems like a good reliable light. It has good reviews and it seems to compare favorably to other lights. At $169 it's a little more than what I had originally planned to spend but the cheaper lights didn't have as good reviews as the DiNotte.
    I mostly ride very lightly traveled, hilly, gravel rural roads. I need something reliable to light up the potholes and roadkill and this seems like the light to do it.
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.

    Cool

    You need one of these babies.

    Too bad it won't mount on a helmet easily.

    I'd like to get one to supplement my current light.
