I'm in SoCal so being seen (SEEN) is critical. These nice people down here struggle . . . even when I'm in a nice buffered lane (from Pomona to Claremont). I'm looking for better spoke lighting. My Night Ize (SpokeLit) work okay but they're starting to become unreliable and inconsistant. I particularly love the blink.
The Night Ize (See'Ems) don't blink -- bummer. Other ideas? Light Pic3.jpg
My front light stop working consistantly. 1/4 of the way into my commute I'd have to turn it back on. It stayed working at that point, though. When I had time (remembered) I opened it up. The batteries fell right out of the unit. They were clearly not being squeezed in there tight enough. I did some light surgery on the paper-thin lead and it appears to be okay now but still the batteries feel a bit loose. I wonder if this isn't the inherent effect of the flex needed to keep the light in the spokes. THAT, and the relatively strong pressure needed to turn those bad-boys on/off.
