2manybikes, I think I got for about $300 if you include the sale price, 10% rebate in the form of Team Performance Points, and 20% coupon and then add on shipping. You should never buy an HID unless it is discounted AND you are using a 20% coupon.

My biggest gripe (and I repeat it often) is that the instructions say to turn it off immediately when the low battery light comes on. That means you need a second light (or second battery) as a back up for regular night commuting.

Edit: As I explain in this thread, my Cygolite died after about 18 months of use. The company wants $100 to $200 to replace the lamp and/or ballast. That's a rip-off.
