Scott, I have an extremely bright light on my bars with infinite brightness adjustment. I get people to stand beside me while I change the brightness of the bar light so that it goes from underpowered by the helmet light to overpowered by the helmet light. The trail transforms from 2D to 3D and the difference is astounding. I show this when out on rides with people who think it is better to have the brighter light on their helmet and most of them switch. I'm not trying to have an internet pissing match but please, if you haven't done this exact experiment you should. Quality of light is far more important than brightness.

I'm slowly scrolling and I think "Geez that statue of Ghengis Khan on the horse must be pretty big... CRIKEY look at the size of that bird!! Thanks for the race coverage. It does look like an amazing location for a race.

^ Exactly. Many people put the brightest light on their helmet and it outshines the bar light and 'flattens out' the trail because there are no shadows cast (relative to the viewer). I've seen a good rider go OTB while JRA because of this - trail looked flat, but the trail wasn't flat at all.

Deals Galore: Over 60,000 Bikes and Parts for Sale on Pinkbike's Buy/Sell Page
Walk into a Hyundai dealership. Find a new i35. Open the driver's door. Feel the weight of the door and listen to the noise it makes when you slam it shut. Walk into a VW dealership. Find a new Golf. Open the driver's door. Feel the weight of the door and listen to the noise it makes when you slam it shut. I really don't care where they are made, but do this experiment and then wonder why one depreciates more than the other the minute it drives out of the dealership.

What's wrong with that? I stand behind everything I sell. And when I sell parts I tell them to bring their bike and I'll install it.

On the other side of the deal, I only ever sell local. I want the buyer to walk into my shed, see how good the bike is, see my new bike (the only reason I'm getting rid of the old one), see that I have all the tools to maintain it, and I tell them that if they have any problems to come back to me. My prices are very fair and I always get exactly what I ask for - first viewer always takes it. My last two bikes were sold without even having to advertise - I had previous buyers chasing me!

"Sweatshops". Really? Is that how some of you perceive all Asian workplaces?

Nah... not until it has a flourescent lime green collar for going up the hills, and a thicker orange one for going down.
