    900 lumens Night Riding light deal in Memory of Geomangear.com Founder Jay Stolpestad

    Not sure if any of you heard of the site geomangear.com but the founder was a pretty active user on mtbr.com He passed from Colon cancer and the company is offering a pretty good deal on a light for night rides for only $89 in memory of him

    I'm sure he will be missed. I always heard good things about him and his customer service.

    I bought one of these lights last year and it is very bright with a good spot and beam spread. Not sure how long it will last but thought I would give it a shot for the price. Last time I used it was last fall.

    I got mine for $85 earlier this year, replacing my niterider HID. But it looks like they have changed a few things since then. The light is good it is a knock off of a lupine, and as said above you can't go wrong for the price. Cancer sucks, especially when its a good guy and a biker.

    I hate to hear this.
    I bought my GPS & a few other things from Jay also.
    Got to know him a little through e-mails & he use to post every now & again on the board.
    When he told you he'd get you something quick, he meant quick... like in 2 days quick.

    RIP brother.

    OK so a quick review on the light so far (i'll post some pics later).

    This baby is NICE, everything seems to be very good quality and it has no problem lighting up the dark woods. Very good deal light for the price for sure!

    I have one and while one is plenty of light I think you will want two eventually. I have only used it on my bars and moving it to my helmet may help, but I think it would be better to have light in front of the bike and where I am looking. Especially on tight twisty parts of the trail.

    I am going to order another one for this fall.

    Two lights (or a rider behind you) is a must for safety. E-Brown had a light go out on him (I believe at Hammy), and he was suddenly in the dark. Luckily, he stopped with out a wipeout.

    A helmet light is the first light for around here. Bar lights only shine where the front tire is pointed. The tight turns need a head light.

    I want to see one of these new lights. make sure to post up some pics.

    but on Voyage 34, he finally met himself coming down an up-staircase, and the encounter was crushing (Porcupine Tree).
