    Blackburn System X4

    Has anyone used a Blackburn System X4 light? I can get one for about $60 brand new and it would be replacing my Trek Ion 6. I frequently ride at night ~4 miles home from work or as much as 8 miles from friend's houses and need something that will actually light up the road. Anyone tried this one?

    I was steered away from it for reliability reasons I believe...but, for $60 brand new, go for it.
    Surly LHT complete, Surly Pacer Complete, '94 Marin Muirwoods....and a couple others

    I have the X 8 that the dual syatem were the X4 is the sigle light imo the lights are well made have very good run time depending on were u set it and the spot light light unit that comes on the X4 works well but I never get much faster than 23 mph and only that fast in spurts and I can see fine with my 53 year old eyes I have run mine with just the spot on that would basicly make it a X4 and I see fine. As far as quality imo there built well work well and are worth the money but that's just my 2 cents I have had mine about 2 months $60.00 is a steal I know this was a old post I am replying to but I wanted to post after seeing somthing about there quality imo there very good quality
    Iam sure someone a disagree but that's why they make so many diffrent lights
