Time to light up the night

Introducing the *NEW* Niterider Sol at only $149.99. Some of the features of this ultimate commuter lite are; 4 hours of regulated run time, a light power of 115 lumens, and an 8 hour smart charger. This is a great introductory rechargeable headlight for the commutter friendly crowd, or if you want to tear through any of our great MTB parks for a little night ride action.

The Niterider MiNewt X2 has two different styles. One has one headlamp(above), but you can also get the dual version, which has two headlamps. It is available for $189.99 for one headlamp, and $229.99. The MiNewt has three different light setting, a low battery indicator, run time from 3:30-7:00. It charges quickly with a 4.5 hour smart charger. This light is great for those off trail night rides and for the now famous Taco ride.The Niterider Trailrat/Roadrat is a great introductory halogen bulb rechargeable headlight. At only $79.99, how could you pass this one up? It has a little over 2 hours of run time, and charges off of a 9 hour charger. Another great idea for those late nights/early evenings on the Wabash, or your favorite trail.
The Niterider Evolution Smart, the king of the halogen headlamps, packs a lot of punch in a small headlight. 1:45-7:00 hours of run time are packed into this 2 hour rechargeable headlamp. Comes with handlebar and helmet mount for only $249.99.
The Niterider HID Flight, king of headlights, is at the top of the line rechargeable headlamp from Niterider. This thing is like the sun coming out at night when you have it on. It does not get much better than this HID headlamp. This headlight has; 3 HID light settings, fuel gauge, 2:15 – 3:30 HR HID run time, lamp out protection, 3 LED modes: Steady/Flash/SOS, 1:30 HR Charge Time, 100:00 HR LED run time. The system also includes; HID+LED headlamp, 52” extension cable, Li-Ion Battery, 20” extension cable, handlebar mount - fits up to 31.8 mm, and a Helmet Mount. Like I said, not much better than the Flight. $499.99.

BCAR Update

It's almost 4am and the thunder has woke me up. I think we're still in okay shape for the ride this morning. Should start to taper off around ride time and hold off until later in the afternoon.

Check out the comments for more weather updates as the storm progresses...
