Aren't all bike lights cordless? Would be tough getting miles if you had to ride plugged in.

Night rider lumina 1100 is on Amazon for $80.

My mega bright bike light has cords. You only need one while riding though, from the lamp to the battery. I put the lamp on my helmet and battery in center jersey pocket.

I've tried small one-piece lights on my helmet and I didn't like it. Even fairly light 300 lumens ones were too heavy on my head before long, gotta have the battery located somewhere besides the helmet.

Yes. Won’t go into details because P&R.

I would say if you didn't change clothes, it's a century.


I didn’t know I could do that……..

My organization’s board just announced that employees must be vaccinated fully by 10/31 or they will be fired. I think that is reasonable but a couple of our best nurses are anti-vax and likely to vote with their feet. Sad.

30 Sep for us. No testing option. Sorry about the RNs!

Learnt something new. Would have thought that lightweight battery tech would have made those obsolete.

These are probably significantly brighter and packing much more juice than you're assuming and you also need to consider the manner in which these are used. Folks that buy these kinds of light are more likely to be touring and/or doing ultra-distance events where swapping out a battery pack may be more convenient and more affordable than multiple integrated units.

Makes sense.

Back when I shot football for MaxPreps I used wired battery packs for my flashes instead of AAs. Cheaper and lasted longer.

Kind of. But I'd rather discuss the COVID political war.

Yep, couple of years when my kids were in HS. My daughter was an athlete, so I was tied into all the coaches. Had court and field access for the games in our district. Did football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, and marching band. Shooting was fun, but MaxPreps was a PITA. Ended up just putting my stuff on a website, basically giving it away to the players and parents.

In this case, you're spot on.

A little Indian brave who before he was ten
Played war games in the woods with his Indian friends
And he built a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fierce warrior Indian chief

Many moons passed 'fore the dream grew strong
Until tomorrow he would sing his first war song
And fight his first battle, but something went wrong
Surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

Dumb times we're in that one can't say much more about a disease than anecdotes without it being political.

You have one of those two-foot long lenses?

Velo Vol 09-07-21 08:14 PM

This is misleading--winter is 3x longer than summer.

Had two, actually. Have since sold them. Now my biggest is one-foot long.

Yes. I don't think it's political, though, to observe that too many people nowadays have access to too much information with no training or experience to correctly interpret it.
