    Fenix LD20: 2XAA LED lighting

    I've noticed this site is advertising this particular light quite a bit, and figured I'd make a few comments for those looking for lighting options.

    I purchased this light about a year ago after a decent amount of research. I have been quite pleased with its specs for night time brevets. I have 2 of them strapped to my fork and use one at a time. When one runs out, I have the backup ready to go. I did a full SR series and 1200k last year with these lights. On the 1200k that started in the late afternoon and required plenty of nighttime riding, I only used 4 AA lithium batteries.

    Pros:
    - The light on high lasts 6 hours on 2 AA Energizer Lithium batteries.
    - Lightweight, waterproof, and durable.
    - Has a low and medium setting. I use the low setting when climbing and the runtime is stated at 71 hours, probably much longer on lithiums. I use the medium setting when riding with others, as high is typically too bright and distracting to others when riding in a group. Medium setting spec is 13 hours. I never use the turbo setting.
    - They double as flashlights at home when not riding.
    - Reasonably priced. ~$60/each.

    It's been a year, so there is probably a better light out there due to the rapid advance of LED technology; however, this one has some real life testing behind it.

    I notice that they have a bike mount, but it doesn't say which lights work with it.

    How did you strap it to your fork? Is the paint OK?
