    Lumotec Cyo RT vs T

    So, I ordered a Lumotec Cyo RT for my new bike (still waiting on the bike). It turns out that I was shipped a Cyo T instead. Like all Cyo lights, the "R" gives you an integrated reflector, a slightly less bright light, and more light closer to the bicycle. My question now is.... should I bother shipping it back for an exchange?

    I'll be using it mostly for commuting or casual night riding; mostly on bicycle paths/roads, possibly in the winter or other cold weather.

    Thoughts?

    I don't mind the lack of close light at all and 50% brighter is noticeable.
    For a reflector get some tape for you forks.
    DIY LED Bike Lights:
    A few Dynamo builds and some Small battery lights

    Reorder the RT. Use both and decide which one works best. Return the one you don't want.

    I talked to Harris Cyclery and will be doing something similar; when my bike gets here I'll try out the T for a bit, and exchange it for the RT if I feel I need to.
