Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
These are just my first thought upon the 1st time use (I have not used it on the bike yet). -Astonishingly bright compared to my old 3 LED Cat Eye light. -Glass relector cover , NOT plastic. -All-aluminum machined body. -The easy click switch glows green so you can see it in the dark. -Can't beat the blow-out price. -Chicks dig it!
Cons:
-No charging instructions at all -Minimal directions are in badly broken English. -Be worried of either blinding someone or yourself. -The O-ring mount is not confidence inspiring. -Depending on mountin location, the battery wire may not be long enough.
Other:
I mean it, this Cree LED is SOOOO MUCH brighter than my old-style LED bike light, and that light was considered a "GREAT" light when I bought it in like 2004 or 5. The O-Ring mount is worrisome. I do not want to see my light hit the pavement, so I will modify something more durable.
Bottomline:
I cannot see how you could go wrong with this bike light. I'm sure there are better bike / head lights out there, but if you need more light than 900 lumens for simple non-professional bike path / trail riding, you are not simply biking. You're looking for escaped convicts.
