    I was out on my bike yesterday (m/cycle, not roadie) and I overtook a roadie with these on the bar ends. He had them in flashing mode, but they were so high profile they are flipping brilliant :ohmy:. Anyone use them ?

    They were mega bright, and everyone was giving him a wide berth. I was rather impressed with them :ohmy:

    I'm confused as to why you'd need a pair?

    I had some, as did Baggy. The trouble with them, as with so many odd/novelty lighting add-ons, is that they are not very reliable and eventually get forgotten about. But they are very good when they work.

    Because I like gadgets, and they worked very well ;)
     
  8. I just ordered some of Yorkshire's recommended - I like the idea - anything to try and keep the tos*ers at bay I think. (On my left and on my right too):angry:

    I meant a pair as opposed to a single one! :thumbsup:

    You'd only really need one mounted on the right of the bike, wouldn't you?

    Still, some lucky folks have more than one bike!

    A, yes I see what you mean. What I likes about his were they were like lazer beams from the back, even in daylight, they didn't have any writing on them though. Shall have to take a look in the local LBS

    The ones I use from PBK have a little LED on the side so cars coming out of junctions should in theory be able to see you.
     
  12. Forgot to mention that I ordered two sets on Sunday and got them on Tuesday.
    Very neat and a (comparitively) good price at the moment.
    Need to try them but not wishing away the lighter days though...:biggrin:
