    DiNotte head-light and tail-light sale this weekend!

    I just posted about this on another thread, but think it's worth it's own thread.

    I got this email today from DiNotte. I love my 200L lights, and plan on ordering the tail-light through this deal. IMHO, two of the 200L's would satisfy just about any lighting need most roadies might have.

    You do have to supply your own rechargeables AAs and charger, but that's easy enough, and you can get the latest, highest capacity batteries for a reasonable price. Something like this is a good start: http://thomasdistributing.com/shop/p...0a1848515809e7




    Enjoy!

    Customer appreciation weekend. We're having a big sale on our AA headlight and AA taillight.

    DiNotte Lighting invites all customers and non customers to participate in a very special offer. Starting on Friday at midnight we will have two items available at unprecedented prices.

    DiNotte AA headlight - Our full featured 200 lumen headlight, standard 12 inch cord length, including the headlight, battery holder, and handlebar mount only (batteries, charger and helmet mount deleted) for a weekend only price of 99.00 USD + shipping and handling. (International orders MUST go EXPRESS mail)
    Link: http://store.dinottelighting.com/Product55

    DiNotte AA Taillight - The Taillight everyone raves about that never goes on sale is on sale this weekend only. System includes taillight engine, battery holder and taillight mount (batteries and charger deleted) $100.00 USD+ shipping and handling. (International orders MUST go EXPRESS mail) http://store.dinottelighting.com/Product56

    If you have any questions regarding either of these products, please view our website and store.

    This item is the perfect gift for someone who needs a light, a spare light. This sale starts on Friday at 12:01 am GMT and will run through Sunday. No other items will be on sale over the weekend and no substitutions can be made. Simply visit our website at www.dinottelighting.com, select our online store and view Pro-Series (AA) Lights.

    All product will ship Friday, Saturday and Monday. This is our premium product, not a factory second or last year's model.

    No phone orders please. This offer is internet only and will not be extended. Any placed but unpaid orders will be canceled when the sale items are taken off of the web store.

    Thank you
    DiNotte Lighting

    I've got a 200L. Nice light, works well, though by itself isn't bright enough to cut through the variance from streetlight to dark to streetlight you commonly run into in LA. On the plus side, it's much brighter than the normal LED light and is definitely noticeable, gives off enough light that I can ride at about 20 mph, and takes about a minute and a half to mount or dismount on your bike. It's also light.

    FWIW I got mine on sale at performance a month or two ago with a 20% off coupon for $129 and change with batteries and charger, no shipping delivered to the shop, which is probably a better deal than the one at dinotte. I'm tempted to pick up another, though, to have one to aim high and the other low, and to expand out a bit the light halo.

    There's a thread that came up in the last day or so on that has links to photos showing a single 200L, double 200L and 600L light outputs on the road. The one showing the 200L is pretty accurate IMHO. I don't remember if it is in SoCal, electronics & lighting or the road forum.

    I also bought one when it was on sale, but it was an older model with less lumens and a short cord. I ended up buying a newer one with 200 lumens and a longer cord. Both of which I'm very happy with. One on the bar, and if need be, one on the helmet.
    I might try that high/low thing.
    Anyway, they are great lights.

    Nice. Lucky I didn't get one when Nashbar had it on sale. Hehehe. I have a Fenix flashlight being delivered. Let's see how they compare.

    OK, two questions for those that already have this light.

    1) ALL I need is 4 AA batteries and a charger to make this function? ( which I have)

    2) can it be used for Mtb, or will it shake too much? ( that is, poor bar mount?)

    Nice tail light. New mount is great, but I wish they'd offered it at a discount to previous buyers.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    The mount is rock solid.

    Does anyone use one of these mtb and is the 200L bright enough for off road use?

    I'm bought the headlight and the tail-light wondering about their offroad capabilities as well. I poked around and found this:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?p=1377408

    It seems that the light (at least the version Dinotte had in 2005) was definitely bright, with a nice wide beam pattern, with the drawback being that it doesn't project as far down the trail as you might want for going fast. If you have a helmet mounted spotlight, you'd be completely set.

    cha ching....

    Purchased.
    My first light, and as the review posted was from 2004, and this is a new for 2007
    version, my guess is it's now brighter. ( I think by 3-5W)

    OK, Night riding here I come!

    I already have a 200L, but I passed on the info and one of my friends bought one. When I first got the 200L, I showed off the light to him and he was mighty impressed.

    Web site says 1.5 - 2hrs.
    AA rechargable batterys are cheap, so for 9 bucks you just put a fresh set of
    AA in.

    I got the Sanyo Eneloop NiMH AA's from Amazon.com. These are the type that have a low self-discharge rate, so you can charge them and leave them on the shelf ready to go. I have like 20 of them.

    Hey thanks for the tip. So much of what I do is spur of the moment...it's a drag when the rechargables are almost dead...
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!
