    Interesting - the "Triple Cateye Variant" seems to say it meets German StVZO guidelines for road use. Mind you, it can't on full power as I believe the power limits in StVZO are 2.4W if run at 6V or 5W at 12V. Interesting if the optics really are optimised to put light down on the ground though.

    I do like the look of the first two.
    I wonder if the internal build quality matches the outer appearance?

    Top reflector is a narrow type and the two on the bottom are medium type. Those are copys of Fraen FRC reflectors but I doubt they perform as well.

    I like the look of #2, just wish they would post the prices. Also #3 is interesting. It even has a remote.

    For 1 piece the price is around $90-100 without shipping.
    #3 is around $300
    and $400 for the quad P7 model.

    So far MS @DX is price king.

    This site has some stuff I have never seen before.
    Looks like DX still is the cheapest.

    Guys be wary of alibaba.
    I had a mate that spent a fair bit of time looking through it with the view of importing bike parts. t wasn't long before he started get bombarded by unsolicited marketing emails from many chinese manufacturers. It would appear his contact details were freely handed out.

    Not a problem for some, but just thought I would give you the heads up

    Yeah, I figured as much. Before you can find out anything you have to register and give them an e-mail. Unless you have a junk e-mail account I wouldn't touch it.

    Looks like there's a double-shot clone similar to #2 > link . There's also a single version that looks almost like an L&M. Talk about cloning!
