    Knog Gator vs any other 200 lum set up...

    For the price, 100 bucks I think its some something to look into...

    * Compact and thermally conductive lightweight aluminum chassis with silicon body and integrated silicon quick release attachment strap
    * One 1 watt high-powered LED and one 5mm LED bulb
    * 4.5 hour run time at maximum output, 6 hours on low setting
    * Intuitive low-profile handlebar mounted silicon control pad with backlit display and integrated silicon quick release strap
    * Modes: 32 degree flood high (200 lumens) and low: Flashing visible to 600 meters
    * 4-cell NiMH battery attaches to frame with integrated silicon quick release straps, silicon body and straps won't scratch frame
    * Includes Smartcharger with 1 hour charge time, Anti-short battery cable with weather-proof connectors, and cloth storage bag

    Why don't you look into it for us and give us a full report!
    What is better than getting your heart rate up and saddle time?

    I dunno...I ended up with 3 x 200L... I think I will unload one next week and then maybe


    Really, it looks like one of the best deals out there for the run time and lum and cost. Down side, does not look helmet friendly...

    From the runtimes and guessing a realistic 2000mAh 4xAA (hope they're not using AAAs) power pack its probably a cree/SSC running around 450mA...ie more like 2w output.
    32 degrees is pretty wide so I hope thats just the spill and there is a bright 10-15 degree spot in there.
    Wonder what the 5mm led is for?

    Also there isn't much of a difference between the high and low, 4.5 hrs and 6. Not much difference visually.

    be my boy be my boy stuck in the head...

    "There’s an online video doing the circuit which proves,
    beyond doubt, that Bigfoot not only exists, but takes size 12
    trainers. He challenged the Yeti to a rumble using primitive
    gestures, determined to show online audiences that even
    though he looks a little smaller, he’s still capable of some
    serious action. Well, same thing goes for the monster-punch
    Gator 105. Switch it on and unleash the beast!"

    I'll give Knog credit on the aesthetics of their lights. Very cool. Looks almost organic. Too many lighting companies seem to not care what their product LOOKS like.

    3 models, all have the 5mm LED
    105: 1-1watt LED 4 cell NiMH
    305: 1-3watt LED 6 cell NiMH
    605: 2-3watt LED 8cell Li-Ion
    I think the 605 goes for $300 with 450 lumen spot, 300 lumen flood according to the site. Very cool design, especially the battery pack.

    Well, from the looks of things...the affordable 200 lum light might be just around the bend:

    http://www.singletrackworld.com/foru...7388&t=3347388


    http://stores.ebay.com/Allteamgo_Bik...ftidZ2QQ tZkm

    60 bucks for 200 lums with ok run time...

    draw back is that no batteries or charger...

    fwiw, the knog gator 605 goes for $210.99 from aebike.com.

    maybe some good competition for all the dinotte 200L lights that are out there.

    now, if only i could find $200 under my couch cushions.
