Bring on daylight savings
« on: October 06, 2008, 08:48:43 PM »
Got my 2009 Light & Motion Stella L 200 in the mail today, put a charge on the battery and stepped out into the darkness. ChaChing let there be LIGHT. This light is amazing, for it's diminutive size and weight it really put's out some light. I had been looking at the 180 but Light & Motion uped the antee with 20 more lumens for 09, glad I waited. I got this on ebay for a buy it now price of $219 I could'nt find an 08 for less than $279. Now I need to complete the set with a bar mount light,I am looking at the Light & Motion Seca and the Niterider Trinewt. Does anyone have or use either of these two light's? What are your impressions of them? A third light I have considered is the Light & Motion Arc which is a HID where as the other two are LED. Any thoughts on the ARC?

I just bought an Arc Li-on from my LBS, for substantially less then any place on line. I have acually been sworn to secrecy. I got the deal because of the need to clear out some inventory.

No you don't.  It will be best if you sit at the pits after dark so you can let us catch up to you in laps.  Besides, you don't want to be seeing the boogie man like FACTORe claims he has.  Who know what kind of experiments the boogie man will do on you.   ;D ;D ;D

If you just going to buy one for the race, may be best to rent or bum one from someone.

We dont fall back till november third.  You will need lights but only for a couple of hours.  The LED lights from L & M and Nite Rider are not that expensive and well worth the investment.

the L and M Seca 700 Race looks like my next light.   

I am glad I went to the L and M site and saw that

Nice try SandPine, but I've been wanting to pick up a light or two for a while now.

Anyone had any luck building a light themselves.  I'm thinking of using a 10w indoor spot and a 14.4v, 2.2Ah drill battery; looks like about 3.5 hours of run time.  Ill try to keep the duct tape to a mimimum.

Truth be told I wish they were on seperate weekends so I could do both.  I STILL want revenge, I guess I will have to take it out on you at Cohutta and the ORAAM since I plan on only racing 3 or so races next year, got to save up for the 2010 GDR!~
