The light is great: nice distribution, very smooth with good concentration where it's needed. And its light weight is impressive: amazing brightness to weight ratio.

The mounting seems cheap, and makes it hard to use the switch. It's adequate to hold the light in place while riding, but I was hoping this would be my last light purchase for a long time. I'm not sure it will last more than a few years. I guess the good news is that Light and Motion have been great in the past about supporting their products, so they'll probably have a reasonably priced replacement strap...in fact I see they already have them on their web site, at $10. Not bad.

But with insecure mounting, and the switch placed all the way at the front, if you just press the button the light rotates before you activate the switch. So you need to wrap your fingers around the front while pressing with your thumb. And when you do that, you block the light, which makes brightness changes while riding tricky to impossible, depending on mittens and on whether conditions allow riding without the light for a moment. I noticed that one of L&M's website pictures shows someone using the button...with a thumb on top and fingers wrapped around the front blocking the light. Truth in advertising if you are paying attention to the details!

I previously used a lower-brightness cygolite expillion 180. The upgrade in brightness is nice, but I wish I'd stuck with cygolite series: the mounting is more secure, and the button placement is almost right over the mount. That combination means you can press the button without rotating it.

One of the reasons I got this instead of the cygolight as that I thought the side lights are a good idea.

I like this Bike Light because it throws a wide pattern of light around my bicycle to see the road a few inches in front of the bike while covering the bike trail ( previously a railroad line that is now paved ) in the darkest night out to a few hundred feet in front of me. This year I will be facilating a bicycle group ( probably about 10 people or more ) starting in April on a 20 mile ride and the return trip will be mostly in the dark on varied road surfaces: half paved and the rest dirt and stone. From what I have seen of this light so far I think it will provide good lighting for the group rides also especially people who may not have very good lighting of their own. The light is not very light mounts easily to whatever you want to mount it on (helmet or bike) and gives others a good sense of your location because of the side amber lights that cars and pedestrians can easily see. Charging is also easy, quick and does not require that I buy rechargeable batteries. Get this light you will be glad you did!

This is my first big boy light. I have used NiteRider and blinkies in the past with success on well-lit roads and trails; however, my new commute takes me through unlit territory. Tonight will be the first ride, so I will update this review in a month with a hundred hours of use.

1. Illumination

I turned this light on the highest setting last night and illuminated the entirety of the backyard. I doubt that many of us will ever need this setting for typical commuting. The middle setting is 400 lumens and provides more than enough of a wide, bright beam. At 150 lumens, the lowest and strobe settings would work well on well lit rides around town and for day ride visibility. The beam pattern is wide and long, but it doesn't get washed out - even at the edges of the beam. I have last years model, so it does have the new "peen" pattern on the mirror. I have no doubt the 2014 iteration of this same light is beneficial, but I had zero complaints about the pattern and throw on my quick loop last night.

2. Charging

Other reviews have commented on the "poor" location for the charging port on the light. I have not seen in any review, however, a simple solution to this. The port is directly behind the mount which swivels relatively easily. A 90 degree turn of this mount frees up plenty of space to accurately insert the provided USB cable. On an iMac, the charge time from a 3/4 full battery to full was about an hour.

3. Mounting Hardware

The included mounting hardware for the handlebars is solid and tight on mine. I concur that the rubber strap is likely to wear out after hundreds of removals, but at $10, it is a relatively inexpensive fix for such a nice light.

*bright light but only stays on brightest light setting for about 10+ seconds at 72 degrees then goes to dimmer cool down setting for 10+ seconds. hence brightest setting(what you bought the light for) has very limited use
*side lights pretty much useless due to the fact your hands and arms on the handlebars will be blocking the view to most others.
*strobe setting flashes too fast IMO. could be somewhat dangerous to some because of the effect as you're moving. should be slower flash.
*light does not detach from handlebar attachment. i think that's poorly designed. it's all one unit. i rather be able to leave attachment on handlebar and take light separately.
