A big thank you to all my build #1 customers!
If you have feedback, suggestions, personal experiences with the lights, images of your particular setup... this is a great place to share them!
Here's a link to some testimonials that I've collected over the last few months:

Build #2 Feedback
Since the forum is getting a bit more traffic these days, I though I might take the opportunity to highlight this thread again as a good place for build #2 folks to leave comments/review/suggestions after you've had a chance to evaluate the lights. Looking forward getting them in the mail soon!
Here's a list of all of the forum discussions (English Language) that I'm aware of for these lights, there are several foreign sites that I haven't listed. The MTBR forum is by far the most detailed.
1. Mountain Bike Review
4. Roadbikereview #1
5. Roadbikereview #2
6. Garmin Forum
Can't wait to get my lights, I will post pictures and reviews on several of those forums above. I also have a local bike shop that is very interested too.
My new tailight
Received my new taillight as promise and I know that most of us follow the build up almost everyday without an idea of how much longer was going to take. Let me tell you it was well worth it. The light construction and detail is unbelievable, this is not a piece of plastic mass produce some where out there. Performance, awesome. I used it this last Sunday on a 170 mile ride and the battery hold up flawless. People where asking me all spurts of questions about the light because that was the brightest light out there(really)
Thanks again Stephen for a great taillight and hopefully later on I will get the headlight also.

Reason: picture att.
Thanks Tony! Glad you're enjoying it, and I hope it adds a real margin of safety to your road riding. Super nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

I'd say for most dry riding, you'll just end up blowing it off. But if you're riding in the rain and find that it needs a cleaning afterwards, my recommendation would be to just run it lightly under a faucet and shake it off. Fortunately the alignment of the mount puts the light slightly offset from the wheel, so it won't be getting direct spray off the wheel. The polycarb lens cover is pretty tough, so you really don't have to worry about it. After you've gotten any big stuff off of the lenses by running under the water, then the best way to clean the lenses themselves is just to use a cotton Q-tip with a little bit of plastic-safe window cleaner (Sprayway foaming window cleaner or similar works great) and lightly clean away any dirt. From all my experience cleaning the lenses, they seem pretty tough as well.

Having also a motorcycle I clean the windshield by putting a damp rag over it and after 15 or 20 minutes everything comes off pretty quick without scratching of the surface.
