    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Your right. Once they figure out how to put a Mag-lite on it, it will be prefect then.

    I've got a Fenix zip-tied to my helmet and a MTE SSC P7 C mounted to the bike. I'll hopefully be testing them tomorrow morning.

    Let us know how it works. I didn't know about them, but they look great. They also make a bike mount too.

    Very cool.

    Let me know how you like the Fenix. What model did you get?

    The Fenix is great actually. It's older (I'll look up the model on it. It's strapped to the helmet right now and I can't see it). It's 300 lumen and I've used it as my main light for a while. But now, the MTE is waaayyy brighter.

    Edit; as for the bike mounts. They didn't work for my bars. I have Ritchey WCS Carbon and the mounts aren't large enough. I'm using conduit holders.

    They worked great! I rode 43 miles to work this morning. A little over a quarter of it in the rain. I was worried about my new light (MTE) getting real wet and flaking out. But it stood its ground. I kept it on its brightest mode. DANG BRITE SHE WAS. Autos were dimming their lights when they saw me approaching. Two hours (+) without the battery going dead.

    The Fenix needs to be adjusted to point upwards more and to the right. I wasn't able to see directly what I was looking at. But it's fixable.

    yep, those MTE P7s seem to be better built than the other P7 lights.

    I would love to get another sometime in the future to have dual lighting up front. This light is really powerful. Money well spent.

    having two doesn't help much unless you can get one of them to throw instead of flood, IMO.

    Thanks for the update Sub. I'm going to pick one or two up.

    get 1 MTE SSC P7 and 1 or 2 trustfire TR-801 cree Q5.

    my TR-801 is a cree Q5 single mode, not the 5-mode.

    P7 2mode low = Dinotte 200L hi

    P7 5mode low < TR-801
    P7 5mode mid = TR-801 (roughly the same, but with a wider centre spot)
    P7 5mode hi > TR-801
    P7 2mode low < TR-801
    P7 2mode hi > TR-801

    Do they make a p7 that has some good throw? I've got 5 bright flashlights on my bike (4 on the handlebars and one on the helmet), but I need something that can project a beam about 100 ft down the road.

    I was surprised last night on the commute home. The Fenix gets drowned out by headlights, streetlights, and such. The P7 shines through nicely. And traffic that use to pull into my lane in front of me, waits patiently for me to pass.
