    Blackburn Flea USB Front

    Hi there,

    I just bought a blackburn flea usb front light. Out of my excitement I installed it to my bullhorns and threw away the manual. Now the light only stays on for a few seconds. Does anyone have any experience with these? Is there something I need to do to keep it running?

    Thanks in advance.

    IIRC, reviews I've read mention that you need to hold down the on button for some amount of time to change it out of demo mode.

    Ha! I was looking for manuals in in the download section (they don't, yet), completely didn't occur to me to check for a contact us email address.

    If it ever worked ok and just started this behavior - disregard the following...

    As mentioned above, the light ships in demo mode so that folks can press the button in a store, but it'll go off pretty quickly. To take it out of demo mode, hold the button down for 20-seconds. Should only have to do that just the one time.

    How do you like the light? Did you also get the tail light?

    The light works and I'm really happy with it. I like the fact that it's so small and is hardly visible. It puts out a really good light to be seen.

    And no I didn't get the rear, I have a fizik saddle light.
