    Miles of even light, no dark or hot spots. Completely even across the whole beam. I love it.

    Already got a front one, just ordered a red one.

    Lights now worth more than the bike.

    I've been considering it for some time, those pictures spurred me on some.

    Want! Can't afford but so want. What's the fitting like? Is the light easily removable as I wouldn't want to leave it sitting around outside whilst at work!

    They're attached with an O-ring, just stretch it round a convenient bit o' bike and back over the lamp. Very easy to remove. The O-rings don't last forever, but replacements are 89p from on-one or really cheap from a plumbing supplier.

    Unfortunately the 600L doesn't use the O ring system, it uses a Cateye type system. I'm not a big fan of the mount. But it's easily removed if you want to take it with you.

    I their their Cree based LED units, 600 lumens output. 2x Li-on batteries supplied, which last about 3.5-4 hours on full power. It's all quite lightweight :evil:

    Mine arrived today. The I'll stick with the 1/2 watt Smart LED for the rear for now (that still scares drivers when its dark).

    The batteries for the front light are charging as I type and I shall have fun with the drivers on the way home tonight - methinks I'll strobe my way down the Mall... :evil::evil:

    Does this come with a separate battery pack (bottle-mount) or are they self-contained??
