  1. Time has started going slower since I put my deposit down... ... 1 day = 1 week... I want to be placed in a medically induced coma until it arrives.... "It's like waiting for Christmas, times 1000!" - Cartman
  2. Triple 8 knee & elbow pads do not require that you slip them on. The Velcro opens up fully. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0000ASZ97/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_-2adFb63JAXGH Also you might consider a Performance Hoodie or an Armored Jacket, just order a size larger to fit over your suit: https://lazyrolling.com/collections/all
  3. I am also curious, specifically I'd like to know if you are smarter now and wear a helmet.
  4. I ended up sticking with the Triple 8 Wrist Saver 2. It is double sided - a significant upgrade from the single sided ones eWheels sent with my first wheel. Recommended, they are probably the best bang for your buck. Eventually I will get the Flexmeters though
  5. I broke down and ordered one tonight, a grey armored hoodie, size medium (ignored their chart). Why do they charge $10 to pre-install the pads for you? Are they that difficult to get in and out?
  6. I wasn't kidding when I said I was going to buy another: Having two of them on was just a fun experiment since they are so easy to mount and unmount. One is more than enough. Riding with two was pretty awesome, especially in darker places like wooded areas. You really have to be careful about not blinding anyone coming towards you. It's way more light then you need but it was a fun experiment, I will stick to using just one. Here's a quick video: https://photos.app.goo.gl/oAxEAmF6Lxs1FkXS9
  7. Check out these bad boys I found online: I wish I had found these before I made my own, they are seeexy!
  8. I need a pair of full finger gloves to wear under my wrist guards that protect my fingers... but aren't too hot... does such a thing exist? edit: this is the best i've found so far: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B088GY6VMB/ref=crt_ewc_title_srh_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1ZTCLB42E57H2 ...Any other suggestions?
  9. I rode for 90 minutes tonight with this new light and I have to say WOW, it is as bright as an automotive light. I think it really is 6800 lumens. It is so bright that I was unintentionally terrifying bike riders in the bike lane by coming up from behind with this thing on - when I lit up the path from behind most of them had to look back to see if a car was about to run them down I am definitely keeping it, I love it. I'm going to order another. What really convinced me was this pouch for the battery pack that they've included which makes it super easy to attach and remove on the handle of a EUC without doing anything permanent: I just used their strap, plus an extra piece of Velcro for wrapped around the handle for more safety: I'll figure out a cleaner way to deal with the wires later. The amount of light I get off this thing is incredible, I took some pics to show you guys but it's really hard to demonstrate in photos just how bright it is. Here's a pic with only the built in V8 lamp on, you can barely see my shadow and the V8's light in the bottom center: Here is the same shot with the crazy new beast lamp: At C$28 ($20 USD) this is really hard to beat!!!
  10. It's about time - Duf has done like 120 videos on the V11 I think evX is in NYC, if so that is Eastern time.
  11. This arrived today, the good news is that it is tiny, and I'd estimate it is 2-3x brighter then my triple flashlight system. If my flashlights are 3000 lumens I would estimate this is truly the 6800 lumens they advertise. The bad news is it has a battery pack on a cord, something I didn't realize when I ordered it. The pack looks like it contains six 18650 batteries which would explain why its brighter then my three 18650 system: Not sure what I'm going to do, it's a really sweet lamp (aspecially for the price) and I like it, and I really want the 6800 lumens, but I definitely don't want the battery pack. Gonna take her out for a spin tonight then decide. ps: In comparison I'd say the stock V8 lamp puts out 500 lumens at the most (anyone know?), this new lamp is easily 10x stronger
  12. Pre-ordered from who??
  13. I actually came to the forums tonight to ask the exact same question. So far I this is the best solution I have found: It is simply a bike mount holder plus three flash lights I ordered from China and a piece of velcro. The flash lights use stronger 18650 batteries instead of AA/AAA. In theory I have 3000+ lumens, plus the EUC's headlight. But I want more. Each flashlight came with a silver clippy thing you can see if you zoom in. I've used those clips to fasten the extra two flashlights to the bike mount. There is a piece of industrial strength velcro to stabilize it all. You can focus the beam on each flashlight - I usually have two on narrow beam and one on wide. It makes a HUGE difference and I won't ride at night without them. It's a decent solution but I am looking for a better way, something USB charged and way brighter. edit: I've ordered one of these, it is supposedly 6800 lumens (but I doubt it), if it's brighter then my current three I'll let ya know https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01COIJW0Y/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
