Christmas Present

Hello Everyone and welcome to 2009. Bike season is roughly 2-1/2 to 3 months away and I figure I would start off my new blog site with a posting about what I got for Christmas.  I know the Mountain Bike gang will be excited almost as much as they were when I first bought my HID headlight back in 2004 (or 2005…I can’t remember exactly).  My lovely family gave me a NiteRider MiNewt Mini-USB Plus, helmet mount.  SWWEEEEET!!!

Just what the doctor ordered to compliment my handlebar mount HID.  Now I can see around corners without yanking the handlebar back and forth to light up the corner.  It won’t be as bright as my HID but it is certainly bright in on its own accord.  It puts out 110 lumens with its single LED “bulb” and the whole system (battery and light) weighs only 175 grams which for us non-brits is just a hair over 6 ounces!!  Here is the review on MTBR.com.  It has a rating of 4.43 out of 5 so far.

Now it may seem like I am bragging about my gift.  This is the furthest thing from my mind.  I am telling you about it so that you can have 3 months in which to come up with some really good complaints and counter-attacks when I show up and totally drown out your light.  🙂

I also got 2 new bike jerseys and some White Lightning Epic Ride.  No new bike though.  Next year????

Let me know what you got for Christmas in the comments section.  Also let me know what you think of the new site.  I am still changing it but I have it mostly locked down now.
