Lumicycle 15 LED lamp

    Evening all
    Have just bought a 15 LED lamp unit from Lumi to supplement my 20w main beam. However, it doesn't seem to fit in the body of the light. There's about 4mm of lamp sticking out of the front of the light.:biggrin:

    Anyone else had this problem or have any helpful hints?

    Fat load of use you lot were!

    Had an e-mail from Lumi advising brutality. Which worked. :tongue:

    Sage advice sir. I do hope you're not a vet.

    Or a dentist!

    Is it any good, Chuffers?

    Depends really...
    I wanted to be able to switch between 20w main beam for unlit roads and the LED for well lit urban areas. It's perfectly ok for that (huge run time, reasonably visible with a glow ring) but I wouldn't want to rely on it as a main light. It seems a bit...old school compared with the new gen SLEDS that the likes of Lupine are now using.

    Mm, that's what it looked like on the webpage too. ;)

    I suppose £20 for a decent 'visibility only' light is reasonable enough.

    Only if you've already paid two hundred for the battery :evil:

    I find them perfectly okay for urban riding. And I even use mine in conjunction with a 20W mid for night-time XC riding (which saves on battery). Mind you, I do have very good eyes...
