here are UK cyclists who actually use it:
I posted on that thread, 2008, as I said things have moved on. At the time I had an original symmetric beam Supernova dyno light, I used to get complaints.
Edit- I bump into a couple of the posters on that thread on Audax rides. They’re no longer using the triple.
so last night I was asked to pop into the office ... left home at 17h30 and started cycling back home just after 7
no problems with the light riding through the city ...
however, when I got onto the cycle path between Cambridge rail station and Great Shelford (5km), there were many cyclists heading in the opposite direction (I must have passed at least 30)
I was cycling approx 24-26Km/hr .... one guy shouted something about 'Too Bright' .... an oncoming bus put his lights on bright, and most people who were heading towards me had their faces screwed up
I got home, and asked my son to ride my bike and I used another bike to see for myself
you guys were right .... it's way too bright
so, back to the drawing board now .... I really want to keep the Supernova E3 tail light, so I will need to pair it with one of the other Supernova front lights (I've emailed Supernova in Germany asking for their recomendations)
I will keep the E3 Triple front light for when I get my MTB
