It would be nice if there is some custom reflector material for extra purchase to make that a serious 'back off' light should one be crazy enough to rear mount it. I don't mind carrying 2 spare batteries for day/night use. Hospital bills cost more. I think a ride in the ambulance I read once before costs like $250-300 just for the ride be it serious or not injury but just to pay for that express ride and the medical personals time. Ouch... that's something like $20/min ride should you arrive in 15mins to the hospital. Man makes 900 numbers look el cheap now.Originally Posted by 2manybikes
There is NO such thing as too bright on a bike. It'll wake the most distracted driver the heck up. Especially on epleptic (sp) strobe mode.
^ i fully agree! Drivers are so distracte dby their ipods, cellphones, coffee, music, fax machines etc etc etc while they drive. I think there is nothing wrong with a taillight that is brighter than the headlight. At some point i aim to build a tailight that uses a 150W h3 bulb and a focused reflector.

you might want to consider a bunch of planetbike superflashesOriginally Posted by Zero_Enigma
i used one by itself and cars changed a whole lane to avoid me
they were more concerned at what the heck i was
some cyclist kept trying to pull ahead of me because he was being blinded by the superflash
i now run a pair under my seat and a separate third on my basket
throw one on your handlebar far left side and one on your rear fender and the pair under your seat and cars won't even come near you
instead of taking another lane, they might take another street

Every time we read a post where someone promotes less lighting or dimmer tail lights (so the poor cagers don't get blinded), let's call them infidels.
2manybikes...haha lovely taillight pic! you're hilarious!
For those interested...
Betty and Wilma beam shots.
Click "products" then go to "lighttest" sorry no link
Any possibility of a group buy?

Updating our site with Betties today
I'm waiting for the Frederic and Barney lights. Hell, why not call the super uber bright one "Bamm Bamm" because it CLOBBERS the competition.
