    I really like the platform of the BTR20 and think it should make a nice road or commuting lamp. The wired remote makes it one of the few lamps to offer the feature. Judging from the photo the wire on the remote doesn't look very long and no mention is given to it's length. Should work on a standard road set-up though or with hybrid flat bar. Nice also is that the battery holder is now able to use two 18650 Li-ion cells. For people wanting both a wide beam close to the bike and still a measure of throw this should work. The only down side I see in this lamp is that it is only using standard XM-L T6 emitter and that in the neutral white tint. Would of been better if using the newer XM-L2 emitter which is more brighter/efficient than the standard T6 XM-L.

    Personally I'd like to see a duel emitter version using XM-L2 LEDs, longer remote wire and a 4-cell holder. Most mtb'ers nowadays want a little more power coming off the bars. Fenix, are you listening.

    I e-mailed Fenix inquiring when the BC30 would be available and the rep didn't know. I find it hard to believe they would go through the trouble to announce/market a new item and not know such timing. Anyone have better insight to Fenix's plans? Thanks.

    ^^ Thanks for the review, I'm strongly considering this light. Just waiting to see what else is out there that is comparable. I am still researching.
