    Default Reflector Questions for Bike Light

    Hey Guys

    Thanks for posting all your knowledge up here on the boards

    I thought I'd share some experiences since emarking on the mission to design and build my own LED bike lights and also ask a couple of questions

    After reading a heap of stuff on various forums I came across a the Australian distributer for Cree LED's (Cutter electronics) and seeing I'm in Oz I thought I try using them

    The specs looked great so I ordered a few to try as well as some optics

    Well at first I was impressed as they are definatly bright to look at but after housing them and testing them out in the bush I was left wanting more light

    I spent hours going over all the specs and started planning quad housings and even thinking I might need 2 of them

    But before ditching my neat little single housings I thought I'd try some IMS reflectors

    So I order a 20.5 and a 27 from the sandwich shoppe and I thought I'd grab a Tbin Lux III just to try

    Well the 27mm wouldnt fit the cree so I made the hole a little bigger so it would fit and upon testing it was a failure no goog at all

    So I tested the Luxx III with the 20mm reflector and "WOW" I was impressed

    Went Riding with it and 1 of the crees and I was thinking maybe I could get by with 2 of these

    So I am waiting for another to arrive to see if I'm happy with 2 of them on the bars but I am now wondering about reflector options

    I cant seem to find the angles for the IMS reflectors

    Am i correct in thinking the 27mm is the tightest spot with the 17mm being the flood and the 20.5 is in the middle?

    Thanks for your help

    but won't an oval beam optic make the overall beam nicer and better for riding?
    if killing was legal, i would have killed countless number of people...
