    No prob. Glad to share it with others.

    Went on short ride on familiar trail with these lights and boy they're BRIGHT! I was feeling bit guilty for spending this much on a (halogen) light but after 1 night ride I know I made a right choice. Have fun!

    thanks....been looking for a good deal on these.

    E-mailed Larry at mtnhighcyclery about them but hasn't returned my inquiry...so I figured I couldn't beat this deal

    Still looking for something to replace my old NR handlebar mount system. Been looking at the L&M ARC NiMH light. Know of any good deals on those?

    I placed an order with MPGear last tuesday morning.... and still haven't seen my light... Should I be worried yet? They did pick up the phone once last week and they said it was shipping out. I've since called once a day and left a message once with no return call.

    Thanks

    My order has been delayed as well. However, CS (Erik) has been very good - they shipped out overnight when I needed the light for the upcoming race.

    Good luck!

    I ordered my light from them this past Friday. I emailed them yesterday about the status of my order. Erik said they were backordered and should ship out tomorrow. I got a fairly quick response from my email.

    I just received an Email stating that the order has shipped. However, when I spoke with CS last week they said the order was going out that day..... Hopefully shipping will be quick.

    Thanks for the updates

    got an e-mail today... they finally shipped it. Ordered it on 9/30, but Erik has been great about updates. Apparently Jet Lites experienced a problem with their light cable not being available.

    DId you guys/gals get the 12W or 20W? I had a storm hid last year and now I am looking for another light. Is the 12W bright enough to use alone? How well does it pick up technical terrain? Thanks.

    just got the 20W helmet mount. Haven't used it on a ride yet, but looking at it compared to my old NR, it is more of a diffused brightness (still very bright) instead of a central hot spot like the NR. The 12 W would probably be plenty bright to use alone though. I'll post something once I get a ride in with the 20W.

    Thanks - if the burn time is good on the 20W then I will probably just order that instead. I will typically be riding between 1.5 to 2 hours though. Do you have to specify bar or helmet mount when you order?

    the burn time will be plenty for the 20W if you're riding 1 to 2 hours. Yes, you do need to specify which mount you want, but I'm sure you could get both helmet and bar if you call them and tell Jet that you want to switch mounts once in a while. I just talked to them last night after I got mine, they are going to be sending me a new smart charger

    My friend placed that order, and she can't get word of where her light is. No reply to email or phone calls. May have to get her credit card company involved.

    Dan, have her give Erik a call at mpgear and he should be able to help her out. I know that Jet Lites production was down for a bit while they were getting the connector cable issue resolved. Either that or have her call Jet Lites directy with her order info from mpgear assuming she still has the order confirmation e-mail when she ordered it and they'll help out. Friendly customer service when I talked to them last night...good luck

    still in Boise?

    Mine had both bulbs included. They threw in 12W bulb as a bonus.

    The latest on JetLite, inventory and other stuff.

    Hey folks!

    Erik here from MPGear.com. I thought I would post directly here since there seems to be a lot of confusion etc. on the status of JetLites and delays with some orders.

    Here's the rundown:
    About 6 weeks ago (maybe longer) JetLite encountered a production shortage on one of the key components (primary cable) for ALL of their lighting systems. As a result, all production at JetLite stopped for about 3 weeks.

    Around this same time period, we started receiving orders from this post (Thank You!) but, as a result, we blew through our available inventory in a matter of days and after checking on a re-order shipment, received the bad news from JetLite.

    Ever since then, we have been playing a bit of 'catch-up' to get the lights in we need to ship for orders. As of today (11/7/05) are we sold out of the Phantoms but expect another shipment to arrive Wed or so of this week. As soon as we receive the shipment, we will ship the orders we have on file.

    We hope to be complete caught up this week with excess inventory in stock for any other orders that may come through.

    In any case, I wanted to get this out there to all anyone who might be wondering or thinking about ordering lights so you would know the current status.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

    Thank you again for the opportunity and thank you for your business.

    Excellent follow-up! Customers appreciate that.... One thing: why so long to explain? Busy?

    I think it was just a combination of things....

    - Super busy trying to fill these orders
    - Took a bit of time to track down all of the sources for all the great traffic

    Thanks again!
