    Niterider and PDW.

    Just a shout out for both on good customer service. My lumina 650 stopped working and niterider was quick to issue a return slip and had it back to me in about a week. My PDW spaceship light began turning itself on randomly and after a couple of emails I was able to stop by their shop and exchange it out. The new one now has 3 led's instead of the single and costs a little more. No charge to me and I found out they are very interested in getting their products back when something fails so they can work on improvements.

    I'm thinking about the 650. Got a quick review for us?

    The 650 is awesome. Been riding with one for a few months now. On high, it throws out enough light to do 20+ mph on familiar roads. The blinkie mode is pretty intense and cars notice it. It's easily charged at work for the ride home. The mount is decent, stable and the light is easily removed. Get one, you won't be disappointed.

    The 650 goes for $118.99, still not too bad.

    I love the 650. It's my primary sight light versus the PDW light which I use for my "look at me" light. The 650 usually last me 3-4 rides (2 days worth) as long as I don't leave it on high too much. The regular low setting is plenty of light when it's aimed right and most of my ride time is in the dark. I am a bit disappointed with the mount for the 650. The new redesigned one that was sent to me is the same one I already had. It barely fits my bars and I check it quite a bit to make sure it doesn't pop loose.

    Most Pac nw based companies are generally employed by friendly, easy going people, so customer service is typically good in my experience.
    PDW, REI, Costco, Co Motion...the list goes on

    Well I think I may have an idea to improve the NR mount so that it doesn't slip so much. I'll stick it on a new thread though to make it an easier search. Stay tuned!
