    One LED can be bright. My city bike has a one LED tail light and I can see cars glow red as I pass. It's driven by a generator and is just .5 watt. Brighter than you really need.

    Nice and calm. Rarely do I break 15kph. Riding should be stress relief, not stressful. Plus I want to arrive at work as I left, dry.

    I had to stop watching at 2 minutes. No wonder so many people hate bike riders. Those kids showed no respect for pedestrians, drivers, or law.
