    I remember this clearly as I was keeping track of the sale pricing and when the turn over of the end of sale was that night. I remmeber the pricing.

    $99 USD for the 200L headlight sans helmet mount, 4xAA batteries, and battery charger.

    $100 USD for the 140L tail light that comes with the new mount and sans 4xAA batteries and battery charger.

    It came to about $115 CDN for the tail light shipped to my place in Canada then the bend over and get raped for $21.30 for customs/duty/taxes.

    It was a killer deal for anyone that owned a battery charger already and if you did not you can always get a cheap charger locally. If I had the extra $99 I'd get the front head light but for me the tail light was more important as I can't always ride with my head looking backwards and wanted a serious tail light for my safety. Perhaps in the future I may get the headlight but right now I have a DIY for the headlight and also with oncoming traffic I can see it and also avoid as well in conjunction with my front lighting blinkies.

    I picked up a CygoLite 200 from REI a few weeks ago for $114. A closeout, I'd guess. I have it on my roadie and, so far, I'm pretty happy with it. So happy in fact, that I just ordered a DiNotte 200L-AA-S for my hybrid. Just wanted to try something different and the DiNotte seems to be be pretty well-regarded

    Good news is I can sell it to my coworkers (shop) and grab that HID.

I literally just finished mounting a new Dinotte taillight on my Trek Pilot 5.2, and that's a huge improvement over any taillight I have ever seen. Check out:

    There just aren't better lights anywhere near the $$$'s spent, from what I've seen.
    I've been using a Lupine Passubio XC which has been extremely disappointing battery wise and the cost of a new one is ridiculous, how would a 200 LI compare? They look very interesting.
