First Ride with the Romisen RC-N3 CREE Q5
I placed my order with Shiningbeam on Friday--got it yesterday (with an LED keychain light thrown in-nice touch). I threw together a quick mount by using the bottom half of a cheap light. I used the clip on the flashlight and a zip-tie to secure it. My commute is seven miles mostly on an undivided four-lane with varying amounts of street/ambient light along the way. I was "ok" with a $12 AA halogen since my needs lean more towards being seen rather than needing the light to navigate; however, it was great to be able to see so much of the road surface on the darker sections. I ran it with two AAs--I'm going to pick up a CR123 just to compare.
Terrific "bang for the buck"--hard to beat for the price!!
