I'm only here for the Jer dragging, wasn't disappointed!
sorry I forgot to grab a photo, but there's just a single screw under the rubber strap that you can remove, then there was a 3d printed gopro adaptor in the kit I received that simply screws into the hole on the bottom of the light. very simple and straightforward replacement.
Unfortunately with the hangover the usb port is on the front on the underside of the led's so not sure how well this item below Matt's working on for the Evo would work for the hangover...that being said, I find that low on the trail is fine for most road and single track climbing, leaving the hangover off until the descent. With this option on the evo you'd be able to save a lot of juice on the helmet light for when speeds increase.
"One other thing we are working on is an inexpensive DC5521 to USB converter so that people can use their old trail packs as additional power sources for Evo if they upgrade. Similar to what magicshine has, but wanting it without extra cables and stuff."
yeah, came in the kit...will try and remember to grab a pic when I get home tonight, was in the carrying case.
get a gopro bar mount and forgo the rubber strap, doesn't move at all
I got my Outbound DH package (Trail/Hangover combo) a month too soon it seems! The Trail light is awesome too for those that don't mind the traditional external battery setup. The beam pattern and overall light quality is so much better, being able to see more of the trail with way less hotspots is highly preferable to the more spot focused lights I've used in the past. The outbound package really transformed my night riding experience and made it much easier to see the whole trail and other obstacles adjacent to the trail in a way that more traditional spot focused lights just can't compete with. The Evo looks really good, if it came out 2 months ago I probably would've gone that way!
I just use the dakine classic hip pack. tube and lever strapped under seat with a ski strap, and then tools, small pump, co2 cartridge and inflation head, spare hanger/reverb collar, some zip ties, and my inreach mini. fits under jerseys, don't look like a kook! cheap, very not fancy, and very much does the job.
I just received my Outbound DH package Friday morning and finished charging it on the drive down to the Cove for buddies annual Devil's Night ride...The Hangover 100g self contained helmet light that still had juice left after a couple hours of gnarly shore riding, awesome! The trail bar mount light was incredible too. Amazing being able to pretty much hang with locals on trails like coiler and boogieman, that I've barely ridden before. Incredible system. Very much looking forward to getting more time with it in the coming weeks.
when using strava to show off all the loamers you know about, don't forget to title your activity something catchy like; "LOAMY GOODNESS", "New trail hunting", "sneaky sneaky loam" or similar to make sure everyone knows how plugged in you are are to new trails. be sure to include a selfie with the trail sign so no one forgets the name!
great thought provoking piece, Dave
stay safe, Clark
'growing the sport' hasn't really been great for the sport in a lot of respects...I'm with you on the overboard with kindness and consideration these days! Thanks for writing this Cam, it's very important with so many new people in the sport who don't understand the long and hard fought battles for access and how tenuous many of those relationships with other user groups really still are.
ditto, they're good in light rain, or for wet not raining, but if it's coming down, you will get soaked.
just look at the population growth forecasts for the lower mainland, anyone pining for the old days is in for a rude awakening. Squamish is a desirable place to live and the people will come/are already coming.
so many yuppies
