    I ordered online about 3 weeks ago. Received order confirmation. Never received any shipping details. They are not answering emails. No phone number available. Has anyone ordered from them in the past? About to cancel my paypal payment. Sucks really wanted to start night riding as it’s the only good time to get out for me.

    Which one did you get? You can get similar ones on amazon for cheap these days.

    Hey @mikec, long time.

    I (and several others I ride with) have had good luck with the brand RioRand on Amazon. As much as I dislike supporting cheap import stuff over established bike brands (Niterider, L&M, etc), the fact they are available for 10% of the price makes it hard to say no. For $60, I have 2800 lumens (note, pretty sure that is not accurate, but they are still bright as f**k), head and bar light, and ~3-5 hours burn time depending on light setting. No issues so far with batteries, charging or reduced burn time).

    Check out this link for a full list:

    And these are the two I bought (two years ago, still going strong for burn time, etc…)

    I have two of those. They work very well, are very very bright (although certainly not what is advertised, I’d rate the 1000 as more like 800). Batter life is dismal, expect 1hr from the highest setting, 2 from medium setting. But they are like $30 and will throw light a good 200m down the trail.

    Hey @aragon thanks much for that information. I will be looking into it. I find that night riding is really the only time I can ride with the little one these days. Especially with fall coming.

    To close the loop on my magicshine experience I filed a paypal dispute and got my money back.
