Are you colour blind?!

Having tried most manufacturers, I still always end up back with Exposure, you can't beat them for quality, perforamce and looks.

If it's just for being seen, Fabric Lumaray does a good job.

From memory acetone will fix the green on them, Here is is in black Image little less acetone and boom. For me lights are one thing where function always trumps form especially when the street lights run out.

I run a 1200 Exposure Strada RS as a daily on a stem mount for the Allez and agree on the quality side of things but for a gopro mounted option the L&M gear is hard to beat for $/beam shape/run time and still having enough power to be useful if things get properly dark.

Not seen this before and it looked great, but a bit of research on the web seems to come up with lots of reviews where the bracket has broken when one of the bigger edge units is mounted on top :(

I second this. Stunning light. Real powerful, about 120g and relatively cheap compared to Exposure

$150 L&M vs $400 for the Strada RS locally. If I was to do it again I'd buy 2 of the L&M units and a bracket to run both in the situations where I run the Strada on high and get a longer run time with a longer/wider beam.

Admittedly not everyone plays dodge the kangaroo at 2am in summer time after work tho. :) Image

I plan on running the Exposure Joystick Mk12 from a GoPro mount under the Garmin. I have the light, but I had to order the clip directly from Exposure to connect it to the GoPro mount.

I have a Diablo, Joystick and Sirius which I use under my K-Edge Garmin mount (using the K-Edge adapter).

Is everyone’s stem/headset cover staying in place? Been on three rides and has popped off three times. Does the other cap with a hole in it get trapped by a headset cover, ensuring it doesn’t come off?

My Venge Pro came in this week and got its first ride this afternoon (been raining all week).

For reference, I am coming over from a Felt AR.

He bike is quick, responsive, and stiff. At 7.33 kg, weight from my previous bike was immediately noticeable. When changing lanes or avoiding pot holes, a tiny shift in weight was enough for the bike to respond just the way I wanted. Out of the saddle on hard accelerations or up an incline, the power transfer from legs to wheels feels great. My one complaint at this point is he plastic cap that covers the headset portion of the stem. The fit is a little flimsy and when flicking the bike around, I knocked it off with my knee (was able to recover it). I told my LBS they may as well just order me 5 of those. Details of build below.

54 cm frame
S-works power arc saddle
Turbo cotton tires (26s)
Dura Ace pedals
Supacaz 18g bottle cages
