Dear Fenix users: stop that. You're being dicks.

Can they compete with a pair of IQ Cyos in series from a Schmidt 28? :twisted:

It's a torch with high output LEDS which some folks use as a headlamp. I might put something similar on the fix when I get round to building it 'cos I can't afford a third Schmidt/IQ Cyo setup in the run up to Solstice. Anyway I've got the daughter's Edison to re-assemble now she's got it back from the respray. £80 for shotblasting, re-enamel and stove. 1 colour metallic. I stripped the bike except the headset. Not bad at modern prices.

The death-lamp-crew seem to like a Fenix (unshaped beam) aimed at driver eye-height, in strobe mode.

Doing that to get drivers' attention is valid with low-power lamps.

Doing it so you blind and engrage the operator of a death machine is just fucktarded.

Agreed, usually. I reserve the right to incinerate the eyeballs of idiot motons who refuse to dip and turn up the spotlights when I cover my eyes.

Now you have two blinded people on the same stretch of road.

Like retributive use of an air horn, it's very satisfying but I can't see it scoring all that many karma points.

:evilchuffy: I ran one off a moorland road into a ditch once :evilchuffy: Old red Fiesta. He was still trying to get it out when we came back from the pub 3 hours later. Saw that car again several times over the years and he always dipped his lights!
