    anyone running a B&M Lumotec Lyt?

    I just got one, and it's much better than the Shimano light I was running before. The beam is just about perfectly square, which cracks me up. Haven't figured out how to take a picture of it yet. I understand why people don't like it, but it works and puts out a substantial amount of light.

    Yep, I just put one on my wife's Breezer to replace the B&M Lumotec Oval that came with it (and eventually fell apart). She's really happy with it, square beam and all. Impressive for the price. I'm considering putting them on all my bikes.

    unfortunately, the cheap dynohub-equipped wheel I have doesn't seem to be available any more. The Lyt + wheel cost me $120 (or less, not sure exactly ) which is a great deal for commuting.

    Good move on putting them on all your bikes. IMO, the better the lighting, the more you are seen, and can see, therefore, you are much safer, which is a good thing. Was that a run-on?
