I picked up a lil Planet bike lite for $25. Then saw a Cateye on sale for $39. Gina said buy that one too! I liked the idea of having several hours of lite from the batteries. One states 200 hours from a single serving, 4 AA's. I checked out some of the other lites, charge overnite for 2 hours of lite? Sheesh, hardly seems worth it. That was the $150 range plus had to use one of the bottle holders for the battery. I'm not about to drop $500 for the amount of niteriding I do.
I had a bud that did nite mtb rides often. He had a $300 system and hated it. Had a $60 special and loved it! I rode with him and it worked great. So I figure the lil lites I have should do me good for the money. Don't ride at nite much but some of the rules for certain bike rides state that in order to participate, the riders need to have enough lite to make themselves visible from 300 feet.
Think this looks adequate? I need opinions before I send Gina out on a 100 yard windsprint to check if I'm visible from 300 feet. These pics are taken during the day. Haven't had a chance to ride in the dark yet!
Just a guess, would they be visi from 300 feet?....yes I'm bored!
