When I saw this bike in C+ I thought it was my ideal, but if the mudguard clearance is limited, then it is a case of "nearly perfect, but no thanks". I'll stick with my home build Cotic Roadrat, when funds allow!

Mounting an IQ Cyo

While waiting for my new IQ Cyo front light to arrive, I've been thinking about how to mount it. It appears to come with a vertical bracket underneath the light. Does anyone have any recommendation for mounting it please? If the bracket is thin enough, it could be fitted between the fork crown and f...

Unfortunately Rose is waiting for deliveries of the Cyo in week 44. Anyone know when that is please? The dynamo I have is the Shimano DH3N80 which came with an overvoltage protector. Is this just used for halogen bulbs and is not necessary with the Cyo? I'm assuming so. Does anyone have the mudguard...

The reflector need not affect the light output if it is designed with the reflector in place and since it is quoted as 40 Lux, which is measured down field of the light, (and assuming German efficiency) then 40 Lux is 40 Lux. I'm tending towards the Cyo 60. I'll be riding on unlit country lanes and ...

Thank for the extra information. Having looked at the Roseversand website, kwkirby02 is correct. The Cyo 40 does have near field illumination while the Cyo60 is brighter because it does not have near field illumination, so the lumens are more concentrated hence the higher Lux value. Now I just need ...

Thanks Rualexander, the link to Peter White Cycles was most useful. I'm looking forward to being able to see that well! I think that the IQFly can be set to 3 positions, to give near field or distant, while the Cyo covers both at the same time. Decision time this afternoon.

At £60 each, trying both could be expensive! My query is that the beam pattern is only shown for one of them. If I can get a brighter one for nothing, then I'll go for the brighter one, but brightness isn't everything, so I just want some pre-purchase reassurance.

A Last Light Question (from me anyway)

Well my new dynamo turned up yesterday from Germany. Ordered Monday and delivered Thursday. Well done http://www.roseversand.com. The big question now is about a front light. The choice is going to be either B+M IQ Fly Senso or the IQ Cyo. However I am a bit lost after reading their website. Am I ri...

and yes many cyclists dress and behave in a lunatic and inconsiderate fashion. The bit about behaviour I understand, but "dress in a lunatic and inconsiderate fashion!????? Is lycra offensive to young ladies of a gentle disposition or not the sort of thing a gentleman would wear? My God sir, l...
