    Definitely not bright, but I love mine. I kept breaking headlights, then spent 10 dollars (considerably less than in the past) and havent had a problem since. I usually only need them to be legal at nights, but they definitely dont do much on the occasion when you need to see the road

    Because it is posted at least once a week and Knogs are more hip than aerospokes and TT pads. Plus it's cool the be unsafe but fashionable

    Those things are seriously pointless. You can't even see them a block away.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    My whitelite just died. I coughed up the dough and bought the bullfrog and toad combo from knog. Very bright and weird looking. I put my black frog on my rear hub and so I have a disco ball effect.

    Since there's not really anything else to contribute, I think I'll say that I can't wait to see what happens when the rider of that bike gets hit with a 20 mph crosswind.

    I have two frogs on the front bars and run them in blinky mode. Just so cars have something to see, they definitely aren't going to help me navigate the dark alleys that I've read about but never ventured into.

    On the back, it's the Planet Bike red blinky. What else is there?

    In terms of brightness. They suck. There's no way you can recommend these as a primary light. They have zero reflector or lens elements. Basically one underpowerd LED only vaguely suitable as a running light.

    Yeah they look cool and all but get the turtles instead: they are what the knogs should be for a low powered light:

    Nearly worthless, in blinking mode as well. If you want something brighter than a superflash for the rear go pickup a dinotte tailight. Please do yourself a safety favour and get a real front light before you get hit by a car.

    Practical can be fashionable too....ignore the minimalist dogma.

    Those little Nashbar turtle things may not be bright, but they're better than nothing. I also have a full-size Cateye light, but it has a tendency to slip on the bars and point straight down at the street.

    Knog Frogs are not to be used as your only source of light, they are a good supplement to a real light.

    I'm not even talking about if you are trying to use the light to see, even if you are just trying to be seen by other road users the Frogs are NOT enough. Unless you put like 10 of them front and rear, but if you do that I get to call you a ******...

    Whoever built that bike is certainly a ******... Sorry, just wanted to call someone that today, and my mission is already accomplished at 7:46am, sweet.
