    Wow, this is incredible- some of those lights are just amazing. I realize they are halogens and some really high-powered ones but it's still very cool. That Philip 70w turned it into daytime. Good stuff and thanks for sharing these beamshots. Fiding these beamshots is impossible for us in the US. We should make the comprehensive ones into sticky posts.

    Thank you for these pictures!

    The CDRM rocked but one can't readily use that on a bicycle. If I'm not mistaken, it runs off AC power, probably takes 90 seconds to warm up fully and well, just look at it...

    4850 lumens though!

    What made this review sweet was the Golf D2S Valeos. It provides a good frame of reference as we all know what those look like in real life.

    Interesting...

    beam shots thanks for posting them.

    I found a few of interest like the single and dual Lupine Betty set-ups.
    I can see VERY little difference between the two beam shots.




    Doesn't seem like a dual Betty set up would be worth having.

    That's because it's a dual Wilma shot, not dual Betty.

    Anywho, ya the price of two Wilma's vs the price of one Betty, I think the Betty would be a better choice.
    It would be interesting to see a dual Betty beamshot though.

    Haha, yup I wouldn't mind seeing a dual Betty beamshot either. The Betty has more lumens for the money than the Wilma, that was one factor I took into consideration when I bought my Betty. I already had one Wilma 6 and was contemplating getting either another Wilma 6 or a Betty 6. I went with the Betty 6 b/c it was more lumens per dollar, plus it kicks butt.

    This week two ladies (Wilma & Betty) showed up at my doorstep.
    Looking forward to getting out on the trail to try them now...

    some of those are amazing! makes my niterider sol look like a $2 Target special. although, it's adequate i suppose...

    question: (not worth its own thread) - do you use your red blinky tail light on the trails? if so, why?...safety? etiquette? looks cool?

    Haha

    Yep, I use the red blinky on the trails. I keep it on the non strobe mode and also use a small white LED on non strobe.

    Why????

    Peace of mind. I've read that mountain lions attack from behind. I'm hoping they get confused if they're out there. I ride alone in the Winter twice a week. Bay Area but signs are posted w/ Mountain Lion sightings. Never seen one. Have seen a Bobcat, about 25-30 puunds. It seemed disinterested in me & trotted back into the woods when I went by.

    Nice! The Flintstones Club is getting bigger around here lol. I don't know how many members we have so far. I've been out a couple times with my Betty and Wilma and the Betty is really pretty amazing. We have all kinds of snow here too, but I still get out there and ride when I can, though I look forward to spring.

    Yeah, my two ladies got so bored last week that I think they were sleeping with each other in one case. I could have sworn I kept them covered in Oakley sunglass bags in separate cases. Oh well, who am I to judge light behavior!

    I wish they show the price with each light. the picture of MX power is impressive for the price. MX power is just a flashlight that run off 4 cr123a batteries. so you can adapt it to 14.8v battery and have yourself a $44 bike light.
