    New to MTBR as of...now! But full disclosure...I work for a bike distribution company

    Hey guys,

    I'm brand new to MTBR. I actually signed up to post an ad (selling my Jamis Dakota Elite MTB), but I saw this thread and had to post.

    At Cantitoe Road we're selling this baby:

    Trelock LS 950 Control Ion

    It's the brightest cross country light I've ever ridden. It last 6 hours on 70 LUX and it's USB rechargeable. Boom.

    Not trying to pitch, but if we could get some discussion going, I'd love to hear what people think upon checking it out.

    Cool, I'm out...

    Seeing that you admit you are a "seller" , I have to tell you what you are doing is wrong. Taking out an ad to sell a bike doesn't give you the right to hawk products being sold for the company you work for. Don't be surprised if the moderators remove the thread.

    Then again this kind of stuff is likely done on a regular basis by people who aren't so honest. Interesting lamp. After reading the reviews: Needs a better mount and twice the output but other than that a very nice design. I could live with 3 hrs on high if the lamp had more output. At the current output I wouldn't pay more than $175 for this lamp.

    Questions (?)....Is there an option to run the lamp with an external battery (?) or ( put another way ) will the lamp operate while being plugged into an external USB power source?

    Sounds like a pitch to me.

    Uhh... ..no, sorry I didn't . After doing the conversion to USD that is a much better price. Likely another $20 to ship it but still a much more reasonable price.

    ( **alternative response: Huh? Links? What freaking links?
    I don't see no freaking links.....Oh wait....Oh you mean THOSE links. Those are EURO links...they don't count..... )

    Might be good for the road, but I couldn't see going off road with this. The mount looks like it would rotate. It also looks like it's made of plastic, so it could crack open if you crash it.

    The optics are really cool, we need more designs with something like this. I would be hesitant to spend $200 on it.
