Gonna let it shine!
Looks like QBP will be carrying Supernova Dyno Lights soon and that means no more battery-lights for the Mendota!
In the interim I’ll be picking up a Planet Bike Blaze Dynamo. It’s a lot less expensive, and it’ll work for the month or so till those are *supposed* to arrive. I love my current light for it’s brightness, but I won’t lie and say I’m not the best at keeping things charged up. Not long after I took this photo, for instance, the light started flashing and BAM – I was without my main light to see. Not a huge deal with all the ambient lighting on the bike paths, but less than ideal.
Definitely don’t like to skimp on lighting. It’s one of the things I see out riding around town that most cyclists could use a little more of. Defensive lights work when it’s dusk, but when it’s dark you really need some offensive power.
Because it’s relevant to right now : GEAUX SAINTS!!!
