Whoops

Lost both lights within 6 hours of each other on Sunday ride. Not raining. Shipped them off to TT yesterday afternoon but bummed.

Spoke with Dave Petersen at BestRest and seems like failed ballast. You could see the lights trying to fire up but it was faint flicker then nothing. No rain during my ride - they had been in the rain a few weeks prior but seemingly without issue. Mounting was light up and post down on EZyMount.

I did have 'white oxidation' on the inside of the lens after first installing them (never went away) but it didn't seem to impact performance (which is superlative when they are on.)

Also - had some fading of powder coat turning hem bronze in color. Took a pick before crating will try to post later.

Need to tape / zip up wiring now prior to commute - disappointed to cut them off the bike yesterday.
