Fair enough if you have to ask a question, but it would save some questions being asked as everything would be in the same place (Iknow there is a serach tool...but typing in lights gets all sorts of posts).SoCalAl said:I've said this before and I'll say it again - I'd like to see a DIY section as the next board. Cover lights, frame painting and building, stand building, etc. For OEM lights questions I find Endurance racing to be the best place to ask questions.
I didn't intend to seem like I was knocking other boards, just tyrring pointing out that good lights are quite important if you night ride. Re reading it, I didn't do it very well witht that comment hehe.Low_Rider said:It's a nice idea, but please don't knock other boards!! It won't help things at all.
All the boards here have their place, and the MTBR team have made sure that there are boards to cover all aspects of bikes and riding.
I did discuss this with Gregg and Francois a long while ago though.
If I remember correctly, they thought it was a good idea but realistically it's just not practical. The main problem is that more boards will just make things too crowded, and even more segregated then it already is.
A "DIY" or "Homebrew" board would be great, but it's already reasonably well covered in the "New Products and Innovations" board.
If it were made better known that that's the place to go then there wouldn't be any problems IMO.
A new "Lighting" board, or an "Electronics Around The Bike" board like the German "mtb-news.de" site would be nice though. While it would remove the clutter from general discussion and other boards, I do wonder how much traffic it would get in the long run.
We'll see what happens.
This is exactly what I'd like to have here, so I know what you're thinking.Stu said:It could have a FAQ section, including bulb technologies, strengths weakness's for each type. same for battery technologies. it could be linked to the MTBR lights review! PPLs own DIY lights including more detailed stuff like ppls circuits and even geekier...code if its a Microcontroller solution (can you tell I am a bit geeky lol). Peoples modifications to OEM lights is another idea (LED lights are ripe for tweaking).
Yeah and very good it is too, It knocked the final nail in the coffiin that helped me decide to order a cateye double shot. Its not exhaustive though. There are other reveiws in the spotlight section relating to what other discussion boards cover. It also doesn't cover DIY.JimC. said:gets updated all the time.
