Hello from Slovakia

my bike with my old flashlights, will be upgrading to nw!

hi everyone

i've been wathing this forum little too much lately -it's an adiction!

came here from czech/slovak forum on site fotonmag.cz, which most of you won't understand (without google translate:)

it's been nice over there but i needed more info and this is the best flashaholic can find

i'm from central europe coutry slovakia, we have nice mountains, lakes, forests.. and some wild bears, foxes, pigs, wolfs.. so it's always good to have a flashlight (not only in woods, streets are sometimes dangerous too)

i love geocaching (almost 300 caches since last year) and mountain biking (specialized enduro fsr) -that are the main reasons for my "hobby"

it became and adiction very soon

first i bought a led lenser h7 headlamp, then i discovered dx so mte p7 was next (replaced the p7 for xm-l asap in january)

after that nf500 zoomie, hs802 (with xm-l from cutter)

but then i bought xp-g r4 and c2 and fell in love again -those nw tints are so cool (no pun:)

so i'm buying another c2 and xm-l t4 from cutter

if only i had more money (student on technical university), i'd buy everything that foy suggests:)

Welcome janko - My wife and I have a couple of Specialized, albeit the lowly FSR/XC, hardly an Enduro.  (the Enduro cost waaaay too many flashlights on the Foy budget)

Hi there Janko! Thanks for joining, we're very glad to have you here.

Slovakia sounds like a beatiful country. And a perfect place to be out in the wilderness in the dark with a flashlight!

For those who don't know just how nice Slovakia is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6doVaI8N9c

It is like a trailer for our country so remember that every trailer is little bit better than reality Smile

We hosted the hokey championship this year Wink

33696933: it's good old Specialized Enduro comp FSR with old fox suspension in the back and new Suntour Epicon in the front (modded to oil;), Shimano xt/xtr and Hayes breaks (203mm in the front, 160mm in the back)..

I'll post some pictures too, if you'd like. But it's dirty Smile

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

As you noted, I have some flashlights but they're not enough.. Can't wait for "L2 with extender tube" from LT and KD high voltage xm-l dropin (I have that one already) -maybe today the postwoman will make me happy.
