Got LED's in one but you can't adjust the beam as in a normal mag when fitted :(

I have 2 of these. I use 1 on my commuter mounted to the bar, and I add another to my helmet when I go in the woods. The burn time on them is retarded and the seem to have way less issues then the NiteRiders I've had in years past.

I was in Tescos today and after asking an assistant I was pointed in the right direction to their torches.
I bought 2 of the 3W cree led torches and I must agree that they are bright. I made the mistake of switching one on and looking into it to see how bright it was - I was seeing yellow blotches in my vision for ages afterwards :shock:
Anyway I am looking into making up a bracket to fit them both to the risers.
I will keep you up to date what I come up with.
It has got to be better than sellotape! :lol:

You'll need to post some mounted pics, have seen them before but looks a bit clumsy. Though it could be neat on the bars.
