Worth more - Easy buy
Awesome light. Super lightweight and bright enough for commuting or night riding single track. Did I mention that my battery last 7 hrs, and only takes 2 hrs for a full charge!!! It has helped me cornering. (Having to lead with your light/eyes)
A must have for a devoted commuter.
Killer night light
I just borrowed one of these for the 24hrs of Moab- I ran this off the bars, and was more than happy with its performance. The medium setting is plenty bright, and the unit is really light- I did not have any problems with it falling off, and believe me the course in Moab is super bumpy. I was very happy with the unit, and plan on buying one in the near future.
Stella 200 ROCKED my mullet all night long at the 24hrs of Moab 2009!
This little unit stood up to the test during the 24hrs of Moab!
Sure it wasn't the brightest light on the course, but for the weight and the price this lil' unit packs a punch!
I used the Stella 200 as my one & only light source during my night laps mounted to my helmet and I loved it! If you can't afford one of the big rigs, rest assured this lil' unit will suffice.
The 24hrs of Moab course is plenty full of technical and loose terrain... I rode it all except for the diving board (which I wouldn't drop in the daylight with my XC bike anyway!) during my night laps.
The only time I had an issue with it was when a rider with INSAINE amounts of light was behind me casting a shawdow into the path of my light... only happened a couple o' times.
Love the Stella 200!
what to say has ok run time but when its on full light has about a 5 hour run time the next one down has about a 10 then 20 but the flash they say has about a 100 hour run time but not sure about that don't like how you basically hang the battery on your bike or your pack if your riding and you hit a bump it tends to fall off but other then that great light very bright light weight buttons east to push doesn't take much room on you bars and the light it self has a very nice strap that is very tough and can go to different sizes
Is the light mount replaceable and if so...
Is the light mount replaceable and if so how much does it cost?
Yes. Both the helmet and handlebar mounts run $15.99 each. I don't think they are available on this site, but you're local retailer can special order them for you.
My first LED light after riding years with halogen lighting systems. What an upgrade! Excellent white light and great battery life. I use for both mtb and road rides 3 times a week (1-2 hrs/ride). 200 lumens is more than enough to light up a twisting downhill run on wet black top or a foggy single track through the trees. Helment mount is recommended.
i have never owned a super high performance light and from what i hear, i still dont. but, i bought this light a few months ago and although they say 200 lumens isnt much (i dont even know what a lumens is) its much brighter than anything i have ever used. most of my night riding is relatively tame and this is a huge upgrade from the "commuter quality" lights i used to use. i finished a ride a few weekends ago and at the end of the trail the guy behind me said he never even turned his light on because mine was so bright. unless youre flying, this light will get you through the woods no problem.
as far as battery life goes, i charged it, used it 3 nights in a row (about an hour each night?) no worries.
bar mount is ok, but i would get the helmet mount. mine didnt come with one and i think its worth it. i rigged mine up on my helmet but gonna got a mount for sure.

Does Backcountry sell the 3-cell battery by itself?
Yes. It is $149.95 and available here: http://www.hucknroll.com/mountainbike/LTM0015/Light-Motion-111V-3-cell-Li-ion-Cub-Bike-Light-Battery.html
fantastic for commuting
As a New Englander, I've got to be ready to commute in the dark and in the cold for a healthy portion of the year. When I first saw this light, I was amazed that the weight, including the battery, was less then 1 pound. It attaches to the bike (both light and battery) quickly and easily, and provides more than enough illumination for riding in near-pitch-black of unlit back roads.
Even on it's middle setting, this light provides enough illumination for riding, and the battery has consistently lasted me through 5 hours of commuting per week, being charged only on the weekends.
Very highly recommended!
Does anyone know how this light holds up...
Does anyone know how this light holds up in inclement weather?I live and bike commute in Portland and we are about to come into our rainy season?
I've seen it hold up just dandy in torrential downpours during 24 Hour races! The company also specializes in underwater photography lighting, so they know about keeping the moisture out!
awesome light weight light
first, the price and ordering process from backcountry was perfect. second, i installed the light on the handlebars initially since i only need it for rides that start out in the early evening, go through dusk and end in dark before i return to the car. the light is 200 lumens and works fine so far on rides by myself. when i switch to full on night time rides with other riders along the combining of all of our lights should be fine, if however i end up doing more rides by myself i might switch the light to my helmet since it'll be easier to focus on where my line of sight is versus where the handlebars are pointed. might order a second light if i decide i want both a light on the bars and my helmet. probably just order another one of these since the charging and efficient design really works for me. had it in a light rain already too and it didn't miss a beat. highly recommend this product...

I'm doing the 24hrs of Moab and don't have a light system on my mountain bike what do you like
This system is perfectly suited for 24 hour racing- the LED lamp is more than bright enough for racing yet efficient with a very good run time and fast recharge so that you can add juice if necessary while your teammates are clocking laps.Avoid older systems like the halogen mentioned in the first answer- they're much less energy efficient, the bulb life is a fraction of this LED, and the systems are significantly heavier because they generally use NiMH batteries instead of lighter Lithium Ion batteries.
jb gave a great answer below, but you may also consider a brighter system like the Light & Motion Seca 700 or 900 so that you don't get temporarily blinded anytime you pass or are passed by someone with a brighter light!
