Also, you can cut shim/spacers from alum soda cans or even better bicycle inner tubes which add a bit of shock/vibration dampening!

I like this idea. Lay some strips in between the clamp and spacer and not mar that sweet finish with machining! Thanks!

I was sceptical, called and talked in person. Ordered lights and received them in a few days. Installed very easy, nice quality very bright. Very satisfied.

Installed mine yesterday. two 30's and two 60's. I'll get a few pics up here soon. But the UFO flying down the freeway on saturday night STILL wasn't enough to keep some dumb C from pulling out in front of me from the on ramp.

how does the new ST dimmer, um, *dim* the light? the knob is PWM, but it doesnt say what the strobe mod does. Can we get a video of the flash modes? and lastly, do the flash modes cycle every time you press it or can you pick your fav and stick with it?


thanks!!!!

Great to hear you are happy with the lights. What bike did you install them on?

The ST dimmer uses PWM as do all of our dimmers.

Strobe mode makes the lights strobe ie on/off with different timings, will try to post a vid.

ST Dimmer has a memory so the last setting will be maintained until changed, even if power is removed.

We recommend using switched power with this dimmer as there is no internal on/off switch. The lights can be dimmed very low.

thanks for the video. i was hoping the strobe patterns would be more like a flash then back to normal light output, but its nice and simple so ill be picking one up anyway

does the bar bracket swivel at all? looks like the allen bolt can loosen up and move about if you liked.

The crash bar bracket does rotate to multiple angles.

distance

How far do the spot lights light up the trail? I was thinking of getting one spot to wire in with the high beam for fast trails and the flood for low beam when riding slower more technical stuff.

thoughts?

Alot of cleanup to do, but you can see what it's supposed to do. Some night pics to follow. It's really hard to see the difference in lighting, so I'll do my best, maybe take a video.
