YES! please have it again, as I will be in Davis showing BikeSmut at
that time. [shameless plug] if you know someone in Davis let em know,
its a really great show.

So many questions
Does more voltage = shorter lifespan?
What about powering it with a hub generator?
What kind of impact can they endure?
Did having the cockpit illuminated mess up your night vision?
How hard is it to get off? Is it possible to put it back on?
Does making an adjustment to your handlebars mean scrapping and replacing?

great write up and great plan! I will totally bring a friend and get
lit at NB then riding around to test them at 6 discreet parks!

Thanks Alexandra!
