    'Best' trail commute light: L&M, MS, NR, Fnx

    Just wanted to get any opinion on these lights. Mostly for dark trail commuting, and some street too.

    Light & Motion Urban 800 (850) has nice features. I like the yellow side visibility lights, but the stupid rubber strap mount...I hate those and it has no quick release, right? The others do, like NiteRider Lumina 750. But it's bigger and has no side lights. Magicshine Eagle 600 seems to have it all but it just somehow doesn't seem solid. That brand is still just an ebay-trash light company isn't it?? Seems like it. Lastly the Fenix BC30 seems really solid tho probably not as commuter-suited and no USB. Thoughts on any of these?

    The bc30 is mega solid. And the battery's are easy to remove for charging. The plus side being you can carry spare bats if you need them. Or you could wait for the bcr30 which is the rechargeable version with runtime screen and a little more out put.

    The best feature though is the ability to flash on coming traffic with the neat little remote switch.

    I don't have any experience with the others. But I do have a magic shin mj 890 on the way which is the baby 160 lumen USB rechargeable commuter light.

    Also check out lazyne they've got some good lights coming out.
