Re: South America Tour
I have a Schimdt dyno hub on my BD that gets ridden in all kinds of rain and ice and silt and dust and it has never failed. I just run with the Supernova lit all the time. Great light. For serious off road night riding I would want to supplement with a battery light on the handle bars, but for every day night and day riding it works great and I never have to think about it.
Have a great expedition.
- Yep, that's been my latest and hopefully last solution: a 'mag'
flashlight with the new LED 'bulb' and a rechargable battery. It has
all metal housing, rubber gaskets, and three light settings: BRIGHT!!,
not so bright, and blink. It's supposed to last about 4 hours. The
problem is the housing that attaches it to the bike is still on the
privative side--needs a quick release. This thing really turns night
into day! It has to be as annoying for oncoming traffic as those
stinking halogen car headlights.
> While it has the same problem as some headlights with beams hitting other in the eyes, normal flashlights are cost effective waterproof (and often crashproof too) solutions. I use the twofish block to attach mine to the handlebar.
> Also very handy to have a proper flashlight at home or when travelling. Bike lights are usually not very handy due to their shape.
