Now that we have tons of snow here it looks like I won't be riding anymore, and need an indoor project.

I made a very simple light in the fall using 2 Cree Q2's, and it blew me away. Can't see ever going back to halogens.

Now I'm looking at building myself a new, bigger LED system, but am wondering about how long until the new Cree R2's are available at places like dealextreme? They have dropped the price of the Cree Q5's a couple times recently, which makes me think they will have the new ones soon.

Also, I have been using FUJIK Silicone Thermal Glue to attach the stars with the Q2's without any trouble, will it work well enough with Q5's or the R2? Or do I need Artic Alumina?
