    Were you wearing your "Gloworm" endorsement shirt during this event?
    Can't wait to get my lights. Haven't gone riding for over a week now since I sold my MagicShine type knockoffs. Come on lights! Get here already!

    Can everyone please post pics as they get them! I have a feeling I'll be the last of the bunch....

    Seems we forgot this one. I am not sure if it is already up in the website-if it is not you'll find it soon.

    Here you go:

    2 years for light head
    180 days for battery

    Nevertheless, if you have any problem after the 2 years, drop us an e-mail and we'll work out something together

    Also, for Cat, the Strobe is a quick flash seperated by a 2 second pause.

    Greets,

    A TWO second pause? At 40kph that's about 22m between flashes. yikes seems awfully slow to me. I was hoping for 1 or 2 Hz.

    Hey GraXXor,

    Sorry to alarm you!

    I'll just clarify a couple of definitions:

    Flash = 2Hz (2 flashes per second)
    Strobe = 1 flash every 2 seconds
    Dim = not very bright

    The Flash mode is incorporated in the Commuter Programme only and is designed for use in traffic etc.

    The Strobe mode is incorporated in the Adventure Programme and is meant as an emergency signal in the event the user gets lost etc. It's frequency means that the signal can be used for long periods of time (low battery drain). i.e. 2 days on a full battery.

    I hope that clears things up?

    Cheers

    @Gloworm

    Great news. My impression of a "strobe" is more of a seizure inducing affair, though... so a naming change might be in order in the documentation if others agree....

    ^^^^ I agree. The "strobe" mode might be better served being called Beacon mode.

    Emergency Flash might be even better.

    As an aside, according to DHL, mine's been stuck in Hong Kong since the 21st! Hope it comes soon.

    This sounds like it's something for me, since I'm both commuting and I like to get lost ... well, not that I like it. it just happens Good thing I got a phone with gps

    I want to replace the light that I got when I bought my bike. Doesn't have a lot of lumen.
    I'm gonna have a look into ordering yours. It seems to be such a pretty and durable lamp.

    Quick update on orders bound for NZ/Aus....

    2 packages bound for NZ were sent from our office on 18/19th, one with DHL and one with TNT. The TNT one had all the orders the DHL had 6 extra lights (without extra lenses etc).

    Now it turns out that the box that arrived (today) contained the 6 and not the orders. Word of advice never use TNT

    The TNT shipment with the orders is still enroute and was most likely held up by Chinese NY.

    In summary, I will send out the first 6 orders (on time of order) on Tuesday (its public holiday in NZ on Monday). There maybe some extra lenses missing, but these will be sent out separately FOC.

    We apologise for the delay/misinformation and will pass info as it comes to hand.

    No fault of yours. FME they are horrendous. Ask around and you'll see, they've worked earnestly to earn themselves the acronym: "Totally Not Trustworthy"

    Oh crap. I see you are sending these Fed-EX.

    Me and Fed-ex man never seem to be at the same place at the same time. I would of rather preferred "Priority Mail". With Priority Mail, if I'm not home when the postman comes knocking I just pick it up the next day at the post office ( 1 mile from my home ). With Fed-Ex I have to either "be home" or not get the shipment.

    Now I might be able to set up an advance delivery time on-line. I'll have to check on that. The last time I had something shipped via Fed-Ex I had to pick it up at their depot ( 20 miles away )...not the ideal situation.

    ( *update: I'm checking to see if the parcel can be delivered to a local "Parcel Plus" office but I won't know anything till Monday.. )

    Cat - I don't think its Fed Ex. If you put your tracking # in google it IDs it as a USPS tracking #.

    Correction, its both:

    Low Weight Residential Shipping & Returns – FedEx SmartPost®

    By utilizing the U.S. Postal Service® for final delivery, FedEx SmartPost reaches every U.S. address, including P.O. boxes and military APO, FPO and DPO destinations. You can even use FedEx SmartPost to ship to Alaska, Hawaii and all U.S. territories.

    Well my e-mail from GW said FedEx and FedEx does have the tracking number listed. I know nothing about this FedEx SmartPost or even if that is how it will be handled. I did check the USPS tracking and there is no listing with USPS.

    ( **UPDATE: syadasti, Yes, you are right. I do see it listed on the FedEx Smart Post tracking. Should arrive on Friday the 3rd. )
