    cars barely notice knog lights esp. if they're so low. I recommend a stronger light like the superflash that is mounted higher.

    I put the front knog on my left fork leg. Out in the burbs the streets can have some decent potholes and the lighting isn't always the best, so the tiny light helps a bit with seeing them before going in them. The rear goes on my left seatstay, right up by the seattube junction so I can turn it on/off while riding.

    right fork blade and seat post. I really like these lights. They are small, inexpensive and fulfill my legal requirement to ride at night.

    I think $13 each is rather expensive for what they are -- except for the silicone body the PCB would be trivial for a third grader to make at home, but the colors and size are too appealing to pass up.

    That's the only thing really going for them anyways. Low powered LED with no lens element and you have one fantastically useless light. Especially the way most people use them, which is as a primary light. Hope you guys like getting hit by cars.

    Those things are so cool, the price is a bit steep given how you need at least 3, but oh well.

    "The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) you’ve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) you’re in a bike race in which case you’re not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) you’re from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when it’s pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."
