    Cateye Volt 300 has a longer battery life and moar Lumenz for cheaper. Mine has been pretty robust and holds its charge well, the only slightly poor thing for me is cateye's "flextight" bracket (as discussed extensively upthread).

    Looks like Leo has a new rival in the "how do I wear this?" department:

    Also can't use a camera:

    The production model is 300 lumen, Surely thats enough for city riding (for which this device is designed)? A cateye 300 lumen rechargeable light (Volt 300) has an RRP of £50, so there's no chance of them going below that. I do think the safety features they've included are quite clever, like the fact that the laser can only turn on when the light is mounted in the bracket.

    Stay Badass was pretty nuts. Full on board porn. I think it should be quite a contrast from Higher! Anyone else seeing it in Union Chapel tonight?

    So the guy testing the bike doesn't want to chop the steerer, what's the problem?

    If beam shape is important to you, scroll to the bottom of here, they have a pretty useful comparison tool.

    You can see the mounting holes on the picture, just near the top of the seat stays.

    I have one in W11. Might be just a bare board + USB lead (i.e. no box) as it's been used for a project. Would do for just a one off data transfer though. This is assuming its a 2.5" disk?

    I saw a kid wearing one of the helmets in Chiswick the other day, very large area of light and the helmet didn't look too bulky either. It wasn't very bright, but large area > bright. I reckon in conjunction with a flashing light on the bike, this is a great solution for kids / people sitting upright where helmet weight isn't so noticeable. I think they should make a rear only version of the helmet as well, as the front light isn't that useful.
