    Edelux II dynamo light

    Just ordered an Edelux II dynamo light for my Fargo. Can't wait to get it! Really like the idea of the auto switch and the beam pattern for pavement and forest roads. Anyone else have one of these?

    Nice! Great looking light and a bit cheaper too. Let me know how you like it.

    I use B&M's version of that reflector offering (Cyo Premium). I like Schmidt's better, as the LED is a bit warmer.

    Remember to carry a backup light of some sort, if only to make sure you don't get clocked by a low branch; the beam cutoff is very sharp.

    Cool, thanks. I plan on using a battery powered headlamp as well, maybe a USB rechargeable. Any suggestions?

    As for you headlamp. Although I'm not a big NR fan (mainly their Pro series) the Lumina is Night Rider's work horse and they sell a ton. Most are very happy with this self contained light as it does have a pretty good beam for a single led light and it wont break the bank.

    Keep in mind you will have limited run time with most self contained lights. If your rides are long then you would need something with an external battery.

    Thanks, I'll look look into that. Any experience with Cygolite? I see they have a couple of self contained rechargables as well. Looking on the REI site.

    Only cygolite I ever owned was the Triden-X. I've read that some owners had complaints about the mounts on the Expilion but otherwise were happy with the light. The NR IMO are a better product overall of the two.

    Thanks, I'll probably pick up an NR soon. Got my Edelux mounted today, just need to wire it to the hub. Looks even better in person.Edelux II dynamo light-edelux1.jpg
