recumbentracer: Funny you should mention the modded Philips light... I actually built that
one. Check out the full review on the MTBR DIY forum entitled "Mission
Impossible." And yes, it was fantastic, but the level of effort to pull
that off was pretty sick. Custom reflectors like that are pretty much out
of reach of the little guy. Make no mistake though, the DS-1300 can hold
it's own against any of them and has a lot of nice usability functions that
are very appealing to roadies.
recumbentracer: @joeybaby1999 You know, that's actually a really good idea. I had thought
about trying to market some for that purpose. Contact me if you have any
special ideas on the subject or want to talk about mounting concepts.
tripleps07: I love it, gotta have one!!!
mac man: Where can i buy one ? firstname.lastname@example.org
klasop: I really like your lights. I would order from you if you would still have a
cess916: wow, sweet Tail Light!
recumbentracer: @tripleps07 SOLD OUT the first batch of 30, but now taking reserve orders
for the next round. Email me if you're interested. Check out the web site
as well... Just GOOGLE "DesignShine Lighting" Thanks
Joseph Delaguila: OK I want one too for my wheelchair!
recumbentracer: @KKhhoorrnniittee Sorry for late reply... it's the receiver for the kid's
trailer. There's a short tube on the trailer that fits in and is held in
place with the pin.
atyl1972: wow that is bright
Сергей Луцкий: BTW, what is that black thing below your bike's rear wheel quick-release
lever (when it was stood against the wall at the beginning of the video) ?
James Dawson: Awesome, however, the battery pack is turning me off. :( On the other hand,
just loving your Centurion Ironman Maser or Expert. I have an 88 Expert,
and an 89 Master, and they both are sporting the PBSF Turbo rear light.
When I saw this vid, I went downstair to see if my babies were there!! :)
recumbentracer: Thanks! Wish I had some stock right now... Impossible to keep ahead of
demand with limited build time.
Lydell: I'm definitely purchasing one of your taillights from you. Great work!
g1981c: as for headlights check out the modded philips saferide light - if you can
do something like that you will have buyers for sure. otherwise your
headlight doesn't really stand out against other headlights. the tail light
is certainly unique of course - even compared to dinotte. i would say
you're doing great on the tail light, but headlight - you should either do
a philps / busch & muller type beam pattern or just forget it and
concentrate on tail lights.
recumbentracer: Yes, one half of the light uses an elliptical lens, creating a very wide
(45 degree) and flat beam for off-angle coverage. The other half uses a
narrow spot for super long range visibility in the daytime. Lowest power
level right at 1 watt and custom nighttime flash modes.
g1981c: love what you're doing with the tail light. i had a dinotte 300R but it
wasn't wide enough of a beam or adjustable enough for me. i wanted more
side spill and lower minimum level for when i am on a MUP. i called dinotte
and unbelievably they told me that having the option of a low setting would
somehow be bad for me and that they will never do it - what a joke. i
suggest as far as tail lights you work on making the beam more horizontally
spread out / oval like niterider solas.
69bigtina: how can i buy this for my bike i would really love one, a complete one with
charger and cables. plus what kind of batteries does it take..??i would so
grateful if you can tell me. it will be nice to have a really great tail
light with batteries that i can recharge
AWDfreak .: I read that build #3 is done... Is there going to be a build #4 or build
#5? I'm hoping for a build #5 because I may be unavailable for a long
period of time, and I REALLY WANT one of these taillights!
