Oh, this is funny. I actually wound up buying this light prior to reading this answer. Unfortunately it failed, the screw ripped the metal mount out of the plastic backing on the light.

comment Winter commuting - how to keep warm?
Can't really recommend this if you ride on the road. Peripheral vision is pretty important.

comment Why choose a traditional frame over an aerodynamically streamlined frame?
Hey, don't jump all over me, I'm completely uninvested in your argument. All I know is I read "how could 'a placebo effect' alter the recorded speed and power?" which would seem to indicate two separate measurements which could easily be affected by false believe in a placebo. I only mentioned them as "the metrics" because you mentioned them as the metrics. If you're saying that the power was the same but the speed increased, that wouldn't seem to be as easily linked to a placebo effect.

@R.Chung That's what the placebo effect is. He's alleging that the cyclist subconsciously tried harder because he believed he was on a faster bicycle. The placebo effect could absolutely effect metrics like speed and power output.

Oh, in the interests of full disclosure, I test drove both (well, the next model down in each case, the R3 and S2) and chose the S2 because it came with a SRAM Red group set. Both felt fantastic and I'm having a hard time figuring out why a company would provide both bike series if there is any clear advantage to one or the other.

No, they're roughly the same price.
