The wires are ridiculously thin and fragile.

This is very adequate for short distance commuting, night time munchie beer runs or if you find yourself at a neighbor's house after sunset.

I bought one of these on eBay for 10 bucks with Huffy branding and couldn't get it to work. I was actually looking for a replacement on Amazon when I saw the identical system and decided to read the reviews. The key to making it work, as a couple of buyers said, is getting it grounded properly. The generator, the tail light and the headlamp have to share a common ground in all of these SINGLE WIRE systems regardless how much you spend. I have and old English racer style bike, but if you're trying to use this on a bike with independent suspension you're gonna have to get out the soldering iron and connect all three components with another wire which, according to some bike gurus, isn't a bad idea anyway in case you lose your grounding due to the environment such as dirt, rain. road salt etc.
I tried the electric drill thing too, but the lights won't work unless they're grounded to the same element as the generator which in my case was the bike frame.
Keep in mind that this isn't for serious cycling and the directions even say that speeds over 20 mph can blow out the bulbs. Plus, in order to get enough contact for the light to work properly, you add a little more drag than before. Get used to it because with proper installation it's minimal compared to the generator systems I had on my Schwinn 3-speed 45 years ago. You're looking for maximum surface contact between the generator roller and sidewall with minimum drag. It's a little touchy and you may have stabilize the generator mount on the fork.
This is very adequate for short distance commuting, night time munchie beer runs or if you find yourself at a neighbor's house after sunset.
What did expect for $15? Look it as your first lesson in fundamentals of electricity.
Overall, it's pretty simple if you remember GROUNDING, GROUNDING, GROUNDING!

This is about as easy as it gets to light up your bike. You simply remove the item from its package, install the clamp that holds the tail light on, install the clamp that holds the generator on and install the headlight, connect the wire and you're all set and ready to go. It produces strong light ahead of you so that you can see at night. The beam is a nice rectangular shape of bright white light.

A lot of people in the other reviews complain about the instructions being inadequate, but, really, how hard is it to mount a generator? It is important to make sure that the generator is mounted correctly and the instructions give you tips on how to do that.

That said, this is about as cheap as it gets. This thing costs $10 at Target, which is where I got mine. Replacing the bulbs alone will cost you $3, so you can see that this item must only cost about $1 to manufacture. Someone has to source the bulbs, the wire, the generator and the light housings in the Far East, package it, and ship it over here all at a price that makes selling it for $10 profitable.

The clamps could be a little stronger, the metals a little harder and more durable, but I put one of these on my bike for commuting and it held up in all kinds of weather for years and is still going strong.

For what it is, it warrants five stars, even at twice the price.

You could spend a lot more and get basically the same thing, or you could spend five times as much and get what most everybody was hoping to get for their $10.

PS: I took that black cage thing off of my unit and it looks so much better.

It was hard to find a generator light locally for some reason, but
Amazon pointed at the Bell offering. Its perfect. While battery lights
have come a long way for bicycles, a good generator light is invaluable
because it never runs out. As long as your moving, you can see the
road, and if you bike at night, or end up on a long ride that leaves
you in the dark, you might just want that. The downside of any generator
light is that once you stop pedaling it stops shining, thats why you
have your back up battery light. The Bell is solidly constructed, the
light itself has a crosshatch of plastic that gives saftey from breakage
from flying stones, and the instructions and installation are a snap
for anyone. Be safe, wear a helmet, make sure you've got lots of
reflectors, wear bright clothes...and get this light.

I was initially frustrated with this set, but at ~$10, I wasn't really complaining once I got it to work. The key to getting it to work is screwing the bracket into the frame so it makes solid contact through paint for a good ground. I basically read the directions to get the general idea, and then installed it myself based on what made sense.

I would buy it again, but only for a cheaper bike, not my good one.

This Chinese-made dynamo set costs around $15 retail. I bought one at an Ace Hardware store in Bonita Springs, Fl. I did have to run a ground wire between the headlamp and the dynamo, or else the headlamp wouldn't work. This is true of most tire-driven generators and any bike whose front fork is electrically isolated by a suspension. Once connected properly, it works just fine. (These bottle-style dynamos use the bike chassis as circuit ground in lieu of the additional wire.) The light output from the headlamp can be feeble, but can be substantially improved by removing the plastic "crosshatch" over the lens. It just slips off, the the light output improves by a factor of two.

Look, it's no Busch&Muller unit, but what do you want for 15 bucks?
