Tubeless. Maybe 60 miles on them.
$100 for the pair.
I know, so not C&V.

BTW, ordered a pair of those lights you recommended. They sent 1... Nice light, great bargain. Thanks.

You ordered two but got one? I hope they correct that. But yeah it's pretty amazing. I just lost a Cygolite light. Great light, but I'm not going to replace it yet, so I bought my third of those cheap lights. One of them doesn't hold a charge well enough, and its charging port is lopsided. It's cheap, but I'm surprisingly satisfied overall.

2nd one came a week later. I've used them both, good results. I replaced the rubber strap with a much more robust one, and all is good. Thanks again.

Bump.... tires still available. My only tubeless set are Sschwalbe Pro's, which I bought and had installed before the GP5000's showed up. My girlfriend rides tubeless-ready wheels, so I may try them, eventually, for her, but she, like many urban riders, is not enamored of the idea of being stranded by a flat.

Well, out of three I own, one is not reliably holding a charge. Oh well, that's why they're cheap. Maybe I should replace the third before I misconstrue this one as useful.

What lights are they, Tom?
EDIT: Found 'em. They look great for the price.

They are. I don't recommend them as primary lights, because they're cheap. As I said, one of the three I own is defective. Spare lights are good to have, and this is the best spare light I can think of. The beam really is like a German light's beam, and it's a bit brighter than my dynamo powered light. The first one I got really did stay on for two hours at high power, which is the rating.

For others who don't know, we are talking about this light. Search for "xanes bike light" because the price varies rapidly.

I ordered 3. Your lighting requirements are more robust than mine...I like the auto feature, it’s a good match to the Spanninga rear lights I got. If they are as bright as you say and they hold up I think I’ll be happy.

Uh oh. Now I've decreased the likelihood of you getting a dynamo.

They may not hold up well, but if you have spares, then there's that.

I don't see the point of the auto feature. Why would I turn it on to a mode that detects the light level? I could drive under a streetlamp, and the light would turn my light off momentarily. And it's the first mode when you turn the light on.

Not necessarily. I’ll probably get one opportunistically - when it shows up, I’ll jump. As for the auto feature, I call for an empirical test! Any nearby streetlights in the great north?

@ascherer, I'll take it out tonight and test it. There are a few lights here.

It's a cloudy, misty day here and when I touched my locked bike outside Trader Joe's the Spanninga light lit up so it's working in moderate light. I don't think it'll go out under street lighting. I believe it also stays on for 10-15 minutes after movement stops. Auto is the second mode.
