    I'm about to start commuting in a new city here and I'm not a fan of the front suspension on my Trek 7100. Can anyone recommend a DIY way to lock the suspension (doubtful) or an alternative fork I...

    Another option too is that new DX bike light. Doesn't look bad especially for people with some DIY skill. Take that light and rewire your battery to 1S8P (think DX one is all parallel but check...

    For 12 hours run time you're going to need either a)A huge battery pack (around 10 18650s) or b) A moderate battery pack and lower output around 200 lumens.

    Is it custom made or is something like this actually available? I have a Nuvi in my car and wouldn't mind taking it when I go biking in unfamiliar places.

    You may also be retaining some extra water. I find when I stop exercising for a week my body weight actually goes down (at a rate faster than could be from muscle loss).

    Yes do this. Remember though, don't get sucked into the P7=flood mantra. My MTE P7s have practically the same beam pattern as a Fenix L2D which is an XR-E light thanks to a decently deep reflector....

    No problem, I also just looked at all your activity, 2k is probably too low for this. Try 2.5k or so and so from there.

    Not to be skeptical, but are you sure you're 10%? If you used an electronic method to measure that it's likely wrong. Mind you it's probably still applicable for relative change.

    I'm still 5'10" 200lbs, but I'm a leaner 200 than before. Biking and weights is building muscle and dropping fat for me.

    No it can supply more, but the Vf needed to push over 2.8A is too high for an 18650 except when fully charged.

    The light just slowly drops down, it seems like direct drive to me. The 5-modes are just created by PWM I think. I don't even know if it's possible to easily make an 18650 P7 light regulated since...
