I should be able to let you know next week unless someone else posts a response in the meantimeNeilroadster said:Hi, have just ordered a 1.2 Elegance Outdoor in Jungle green, I went for the LED lights and a couple of others extras.....
Question is....how much of the rear lights are LED?....just the night lights or is it brake and indicators too?
Lobo said:Totally agree, especially those idiots who sit at junctions or traffic lights with foot on the brake and not selecting neutral and applying the hand brake as we are trained to do. Even the traditional bulbs are blinding, I find myself holding back by a car and a half in these cases.
JOOKS said:I must admit, I didn't put a lot of thought or research into ordering LED rears as an option - like most folk I suspect, I just thought that they looked great!
No, I'm just a poor driver (who for many years rallied and have driven for 53 years without bump or endorsement) No intention of starting issues on here - sorry folks! Just been on another site and seen more than my share of pettiness, so I'll bow out on this thread.Llanigraham said:
No problem Derek, but to others "Let him without sin lob the first half charlie" (with apologies to John 8:7)The Hood said:I seem to have stirred up a can of worms which was not my intention. There is a maximum wattage for stop / tail lights which to some degreewith a normal bulb controls their level of brilliance, LED's produce a far more intense level of light at lover wattages, and so there may be a need to introduce some sort of measurement or control over their output. Regardless of a driver or cyclists good or bad habits the use of LED's is increasing, even an approaching cyclist using a strobing LED font light on an unlit country road can be quite awkward. At present LED's do not project light particularly well, but I remember reading some time ago that some one had found that if you give them a surface similar to a golf ball but at a far more minute level the projection problem was overcome but production costs were prohibitive. I expect eventually the projection problem will be overcome at a sustainable cost and filament bulbs will become less prevalent.
I would concur with Jooks. All too often on these forums there are a few strong willed contributors who seem to have an opinion on most subjects, ridiculing and belittling other contributors that does nothing for the site. Please keep it positive and useful for all our benefit.JOOKS said:Nothing wrong with having strong views and ideas but it would be a great shame if this forum slid down hill towards "other" such places.
