I sometimes use a pair of 600lumen lights up front (total 1200) and it's definitely plenty most of the time but to be honest, sometimes when it's raining and dark, I still want more.

Nick... did you by chance rode around Gainesville/Bristow, VA ?

I saw a N Luhr on a few of the Strava segments around my neighborhood

Yep that was me. Moved west in 2009. I don't think Strava existed back then, but I had some old gpx files from my Garmin so I loaded them in.

Nice. Which ones do you use? Fancy name brand LEDs? HIDs? DealExtreme budget deal like me? The DX light I have both up front and in back uses a SSC P7 LED and looks nigh-identical to the Magic Shine wares, only for a fraction of the price ($45 shipped).

Yeah basically. Niterider Minewt 600's. I like that they are self contained so I can just toss them on my road bike and go and toss them in my pack when I don't want them. I used my REI dividend to buy them last year and they have been great so far.

It's amazing how just a few years ago we were happy with ****ty little 5w and 10w incandescent bulbs. Although they produced better light, they were just so relatively dim.

what kind of riding do you want to do? lots of dirt trails that aren't that challenging, at no where near race pace? then yes.

If you want to do any considerable portion of paved areas(over 20% of your mileage) then go with something faster, like a cannondale quick or kona dew.

If you want to do super jumps and sweet tricks or extra gnarly trails with roots and rocks and terrain like we have here in the PNW, get a real bike.

I rode an old Aggressor from 1998 for a decade and it's a fine bike but it's not what you're looking for if you aren't serious and want something for pavement, and it's not going to handle very well over any kind of challenging trail/atb use. forget gravity or technical mtb stuff, that bike isn't up to it.

Performance Bike, or your LBS. Cheaper than pretty much any place that needs shipping paid.

The damn city still has a lot of sections of the lakefront trail sections with lights that aren't working. Normally all you really need is something to get attention rather than to actually see where you are going.

And I ran into a stone cold crazy on my commute home yesterday. With an expensive road bike, tights, shoes and no helmet I thought he was going to take off at the first clear opportunity so I stayed behind him for a quarter mile and he completely freaked out about tailgating in a way I've never seen anyone react in six years on this path. Lots of cussing, threatening, and so on as I just went past with a muttered 'whatever.' I heard him bitching behind me for another half mile then nothing. Some people...

Thanks man! The bike is a 2011 Trek Speed Concept 7.5. All stock except seat and wheels. Seat is Adamo TT. Front wheel is SRAM s80. And the disc is a renn 575. 700c, sram/shimano hub. Cheap disc, but gets the job done! Working on getting a new setup over the winter for next year. Zipp sub 9 disc and a zipp 808 firecrest front wheel...is what I want!

Finally got my new frame and parts in from Guerra and veinbmx. I'm pretty happy with how it came out both in looks and weight. 23lbs with front brakes,gyro,freecoaster,and no titanium(yet).

thought fellow road cyclists would app this...

"World Championships, U23 Men’s race. A French cyclist has a mechanical issue with his bike and has to swap it for a replacement.

You may have to watch this a second time to realise that he really did change bikes! Stunning.

The group is probably doing 25-30 mph at this point and he barely loses more than 2 or 3 spots.

He even had the presence of mind to take his bike computer with him!

As the guy at the end says (in French) “That’s how it is when you are a pro”
