    Bright

    My daughter passed me Friday night in her car as I was leaving to ride. When I got back, she said dad that light is brighter then a high beam on a car. I thought to my self THANKS DINOTTE (1200) for making a great light and standing behind the quality that is American made and I don't have to worry about slave labor in some far off country throwing some copy together to fool the masses !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Agreed.

    I wish they would offer upgrade options on their current models. Received an email confirmation regarding this for their 400 series last December. Still waiting.....

    I find it sad when someone has to try to justify their purchase by attempting to lay guilt on others who bought from somewhere else outside the country. Since it is also the opening post it was also obviously written to be divisive. I don't criticize you for buying American however just because some countries do not have the same standard of living as America doesn't necessarily mean they are slaves. Oh and for the record, EVERYTHING gets copied to one degree or another. Name it and it's been copied. Just because something is copied doesn't mean someone is trying to fool someone else unless of course they are using the same brand name illegally. What a sad shameful OP this is. (*And by the way, what country do you think made the frame on your bike...where does your food come from....your clothes....your shoes....your TV...etc, etc)
    I suppose you can escape me calling you a hypocrite but only if you tell me that you're Amish.....Then again, the Amish don't use computers or electricity as far as I know.

    I don't even know that DiNotte lights are made in the US. I doubt it. Even if they are, they are just assembled here using components that are all made somewhere in Asia.

    Feel better now?
    I can tell you that I sure feel better having a few hundred extra dollars in my pocket by not overpaying for a light like you did

    My bike frame is made in the USA( Tour Easy Gold Rush), My food is HOME GROWN IN GEORGIA ,USA, My shoes were made in the USA(New Balance) , My Bike light was made in the USA. I tried Magic shine and guess what they suck. and mr. Cat you must feel good about yourself for taking up for people that are enslaved! Why don't your ride over and live there with them. Maybe you can could enlighten them about how good they have it with very little freedoms.

    I'm not taking on the worlds problems. If you read further up i got flamed and told what i owned when they don't know me. I'm pissed at magicshine and the people that stood up here and praised there quality and the vendor for handling the problem. I have been waiting for 90days for some batteries and that is not good business. I have always bought quality no matter the price.

    Boo-friggin'-hoo! As was said several times in the past, just buy a replacement battery from somewhere else in the meantime, and when your MS replacement comes in, you'll have an extra battery.
    And before you start crying about having to put more money out for another battery, keep in mind that you are still way ahead of the game compared to what other light manufactures are charging for their lights.

    It's really all just a minor hiccup, but some people want to make it a bigger deal then it really is, sheesh!

    Hey

    Just got my replacement upgrade 6.0 batteries today. WOW.

    They are real nice. By the way, same casing as the Dinotte battery. And it comes w/ straps to attach to your bike.

    Dude, order yourself the upgrade. 25 bucks and it's WAY worth it but I would do it before that option is not available.

    Cat or others, do you know if there is an adaptor that would allow me to use the GEO 6.0 w/ my Dinotte lights.

    Please, explain why you think they are enslaved. I didn't exactly ride over there (I fly) but did spend time at plenty of factories in China and lived with them for weeks or even months at a time. They actually do have a pretty relaxed and happy life minus all the excessive luxury stuff that we crave for. They have everything they "need" and is given plenty of time to have fun and enjoy life rather than getting pressured from work or to make a living.

    And about freedom. Unless you go really high profile against the government, I don't think anyone would really care about what you do. But that really doesn't effect their everyday life and is far from have very little freedom. The only big issue I have there is the internet where plenty of sites are blocked. But such censorship are easy to bypass pretty much everyone there knows how to do it.

    You're just a typical example of one of those who had not traveled anywhere and just gets brain washed in front of the TV believing in all the crap that the media feeds you. To me that sort of brainwashing and the ignorance of the masses is even more scary than the so called lack of freedom in China.

    Sorry but once again I have to correct you. I would not use the word "enslaved" as it is insulting. If you doubt my word the next time you go to a Chinese restaurant just ask the waiter or waitress , "What's it like to come from a country where the people are enslaved"?. Don't blame me though if you're asked to leave. There is a big difference between being "Disadvantaged" and "Enslaved".

    Now about that bike frame....I've never seen anyone ride a Recumbent bike on trails before...Not to mention I've never seen anyone eat only in Georgia before. Oh and those New Balance shoes......Shame on you for supporting a company with Chinese factories that had one of the worst records in China. Not to mention really low pay for a major company like New Balance. Humm...no mention of the TV....

    This leaves me with one thing to say......SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!

    There are many self appointed a holes on these forums, so don't let them get you down. Lot's of a holes on mtbr. btw, Dinotte is a fine company. They respond very quickly to emails, and have very excellent service.

    Yes Coach, by all means very good advice there. Fortunately, most people here are just regular good 'ol mountain bike folk who post up from whatever part of the world they come from. Most of us live quiet lives, watch our Samsung TV's, eat various foods from different parts of the world, drive cars that were either built somewhere other than USA or have parts from other countries, have bikes with Chinese frames but hey. We're just a bunch of "good ol' boys" when it comes right down to it. We don't mean no harm and we don't call people names like some people I know do. Come on Coach. You know you love us. We're your next door neighbor. ( Who was it said now to , "Love thy neighbor"? ) How 'bout a thumbs up and a smile to show us you can take a poke?
