    This Rainbow Racer transforms your bike by clipping the strand to the wheel, switch on and watch it cycle through 25 different colour patterns. The racer is designed from ages 5 years+ and requires home assembly.

    Two 1.5 metre lengths and a controller wit constant and variable flashing

    Very suitable for illuminating your bike's flag at night.
    Says £14-97 here (don't know about delivery though).

    He he, dunno if you're being sarcky Dom, apologies if not. I do quite....lilke'em! At least no muppet driver could use SMIDSY as an excuse when you are riding lit up like Waynes Mobile Disco, weddings and bar mitzvahs a speciality.

    Can't we offer a pro rider a deal to use these on the pro circuit, hopefully to be used in a race which goes on until dusk........

    Fitted on the Catrike!

    Superbly visible from the sides, and even visible over the Dinotte rear LED and Hope HID on the front!

    I can imagine those things coming loose, tangling up in the spokes and throwing the rider off causing serious injury. I will complain to trading standards and RoSPA immediately!

    They do look pretty tho...

    I think they will make me look one cool dude with me Ray Bans on, on a dark winters night, tinnie in one hand, mobile in the other and ipod at full volume. Yeah ! YEAH !

    (Just taking me tablets so I'll calm down in a minute !)

    yeh, pretty cool, could set of a new trend if we all buy them. Wonder how robust/reliable they are? Anyone willing to test ride them?

    Saw 'em advertise thro' 'Toys R Us' a few weeks ago.

    Figured anything that encourages kids to have any sort of light on their bike at night wasn't a bad idea

    (I also considered it for the commuter.......for a few seconds)

    my sister brought me something similar, not quite to whizzy, little flashy lights you put on the valve. unfortunately, i've got the wrong type of valves. i wouldn't mind this for my bike, the dark nights are coming.
