Ha! I am not in the habit of reading user manuals, just been using it in the default mode that it came with but since you ask, I finally went and took a peek at the user manual online...

https://exposurelights.com/pub/media...PUG2-Blaze.pdf


Here's the cliff note version.

Everything is adjusted through the top button.

There are three settings. High medium low brightness.

Press and hold.
If you let go after one flash, you are in high.
Two flashes - medium
Three flashes - low

To turn on light, press twice in quick succession.
To turn off light, press and hold until you see two quick flashes.

To toggle between constant and flashing mode while the light is on , just press once.


That's all there is to it.

I got the first one from 11.4 pal. Used it for two years, like it so much, bought another one a few months ago during a discount sale. ($80)

Super bright - I mean Dinotte-level bright.
Super long life - 8 hrs at the highest setting.
USB charged

What's there not to like.

Didn't you recently move from the TRPs to Velo Orange brakes (last pic shows TRPs)? I'm curious how they compare.

This bike and the fun I'm having riding my not-quite-perfect-fitting BMC road are really making me focus on saving for an MRB.

I actually stayed w the TRPs. Switching them was going to cost $50-75 and since I decided to go w Campy cranks, the matching isn't as important. Now that the pads have bedded in a bit, the braking is really good on the Nemesis rims too.

If you can beg/borrow/steal the funds to get one done up for you from Dave...do it!

2019. Starting out proper. This saddle is for the Tournesol, just wanted to try it today... It's wonderful. Looks like my angle is a bit northward though - funny that I didn't feel that on the road.

you're not missing anything with the VO brakes, the TRPs are better, all day - though if you still have the stock pads on the TRPs, they are not the best.

Anyway, this latest one is a nice picture. the paint in most of the others looks pretty much black, this one in the sun we get to see the blue really coming through. lovely.

One way or another I will (eventually). As with you I have a bit too much overlap for the Kirk I'd ideally want, unfortunately my used frames won't have the market yours do. Plus I know I'd be hitting the Kirk options pretty hard (Onesto, filleted, terraplane, head badge).

You are so right, after my initial couple rides with the stock TRP pads I swapped the fronts for some Kool Stop Dura Salmons I had. World of difference, BIG world.

A lot of Brooks fans ride them with the nose a little upwards. If that's what works, go with it.

That's why you don't set up a bike based on aesthetics or what people say on a forum.

Thanks gents - I decided to give it the winter off so I can enjoy a fresh build when the spring comes rather than fretting over mucking it up through the sloppy season here - new bike day part two is just around the corner

And Morgul - I'm excited to see how yours comes together - I imagine it won't be too long now?

When perfecting saddle position, iteration beats rumination.
