I bought this after having trouble with some other sets of lights. I use to work in a bike shop and I'm use to spending 20-30.00 on just a single light. Since moving to the country I do not have that option...no bike shops around. So department stores are my only option.
This light is exceptional since most lights of similar value aren't very good. Despite having just 1 LED it is very bright and visible from a far distance. Actually hurts to look at!
I actually tested this against a Planet Bike brand tail light and it was much brighter & visible! Very happy with this!
I purchased these lights to be seen and not to see with. Which would explain the cheap price. Cheap is definitley the wrong word to use for this product. The lights were brighter than expected and had the option to flash. Easily attach to handle bars and seat. Since they are rubber straps I do recommend taking them off the bike when not in use. Like anything prolonged exposure to the sun will cause them to become brittle and break. They are chep enough to replace but this way you can get a longer life out of them.
For the price I paid for these bicycle lights, it wasn't a bad purchase. Both lights were brighter than I had expected and worked really well to light the road and warn cars around me of my presence. This Bell light set really "outshines" the competition through being brighter, cheaper, and more durable than the rest.
We loved this. It allowed them to use their own bike and pedal until they were too tired. It was easy to hook their bike up and off we go, Dad pulling all the weight. Once they were ready to pedal again we would detach their bike and the bar snaps out of the way on our bike. We never took the bar off during the 3 years our kids used the trail gator. I didnt want to spend money on the tag along bikes when you can use this instead so they never outgrow it and it lets them get some excercise as well. We had this on the back and the ibert saf-t-seat up front. Both great for family bike rides.
