    Of course, it depends on what you want. I bought a Gemini Xera through Action LED, and got great service. Action LED has a modest selection of lights, but if they have what you want, they have great service. I bought a Gloworm X2 directly through the Gloworm website. I think both of those lights are exceptional values, very well designed, great light output, and at very good prices.

    I second this. I have the older "Joystick" and the "Enduro Maxx" and have had absolutely no problems with them. They are both about four years old and still take a full charge. Also, I love the no cable integrated battery design. Absolutely worth your time to look at their products.

    You're not giving us enough information. What light system(s) are you considering? How much are you willing to spend? If you're going to buy a light system from an internet vendor it pays to buy from someone who specializes in bike lights and has a good reputation for follow up service. There are a number of vendors who peruse these forums and dialog with the MTBR posters on a regular basis. As such they have earned a good reputation for their reliable service and customer satisfaction. Just tell us a little more information about what you want and maybe we can help.

    Very happy with my Magicshines from Geomangear as our several in my riding group. Depends on what lights you want - choose that first and then figure out where to get them!

    I just bought an inexpensive Gemini kit, lens and sealed battery from Action LED Lights.

    My order arrived quickly without issue.

    Gemini TITAN LED Light System $74.95
    Action-LED-Lights — Gemini Titan - lightweight and powerful LED light for bike, running, skiing, or anywhere hands free lighting is needed

    Regarding Geoman, I can't recommend buying from them. My experience with the recall was inadeqate.

    That's a nice find! Looks like the same one Geo sells but 900 lumens instead of 1000.

    Sorry about your experience at Geomangear, I had a really good experience with them and they always kept me up to date on the latest and I will buy again based on the customer service.

    Good experience w/ GEO as well. 2 new batteries while everyone else who sold the MS lights stood by and did nothing.

    Dinotte awesome as well. Accidentally pulled the wires from the back of my XML-3 tightening it down. Emailed Dinotte and told them what I did and that it was my fault, user error. They emailed back, I sent it in and they repaired it and sent back. When I opened the package, the receipt said no charge. And the whole process was only a week.

    Back to the original topic, instead of my original comment where i just said "Geomangear", i'd like to second the notion about figuring out what light you want before choosing a vendor. But if its anything Geomangear sells, go Geomangear.

    +1.

    [For the record: Geoman is still a good place to buy lights. Our other issue is in no way suggesting they are not.]
