Amazon.com : RioRand 4 Mode 1200 Lumen CREE XML T6 Bulb LED Bicycle bike HeadLight Lamp Flashlight Light Headlamp : Sports & Outdoors

We have only run them about 45 minutes on high so far, but we haven't had any issues with them at all. There are a lot of good reviews there. We rode with them last night, which was the darkest night we have ridden so far and they were great, really lights up the trail we are on which has a lot of trees and no ambient light as we are out in the country on a rail to trail MUP.


I've got a couple of similar units i picked up from Amazon.

Run time on high for mine is around 2 hours... maybe 2.5. on low or medium seems to almost double that.

Diadora X-Vortex MTB Shoes Size 48EU
Endura Gridlock Jacket
Hot Chillys Black Heather Hot Sock

Stuff hasn't arrived yet, should be here Friday. So far I'm running 3 for 3 in sending clothing back that I've ordered online.

I'm hoping the shoes fit as it's the only size they had and they were a good deal. My first pair of biking shoes so I'm not used to the sizing from EU to USA.

I use this lamp for commuting and for Rando. On low beam (which is plenty) I get 12-15 hours of light per charge. I use this light as my primary vision light (i have it pointed at the road to see where I am going). It is not a good lamp for alerting cars that you exist, it is too bright.

A Blackburn saddle bag and some really nice Descente socks in the half-price basket.

I purchased a second pair of Novara (REI) Headwind pants for 25% off last weekend! They didn't have these pants last year and now I have two pair for winter riding. That's California winter. Most of the time the pants with biking shorts are fine. Adding legwarms or base layer tights for extra warmth. Novara Headwind Bike Pants - Men's.

There aren't a lot of places you can get Assos. Here's the link for North America. I ordered them from Competitive Cyclist. They are a new model and backordered, so I won't have them for a couple of weeks.

Yup, that's what I've found. As long as I have to interwebz them (instead of getting from my LBS), I was trying to decide whether to go with one of the UK shops (either Ribble or Wiggle had them I think) and save a few bucks. I'll still be looking for your review, once you've had them for a while.

Shimano 105 front derailleur. I know, I've read all the threads about what to upgrade and what not to upgrade. But I decided to reward myself after dropping 25 lbs this year (and earning a 20% discount on my health insurance next year!) and it's been bugging me that, at the time I purchased my bike, a full 105 set up wasn't available.

The wheels are from a local wheel builder in Sydney Australia......Two Wheel Enterprises
Wheels are light, stiff and still retain a solid feel
Best of all is the price
