About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.

Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.

Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

Light works great, very bright!
R. A. Cozens
The handle bars where there is no grip tape is too small for this mounting bracket and the light just barely stays on.
N. Juntilla
It installs very easily and is easy to take off when you park.

I've had mine for almost two years of heavy use. The light is very bright, providing a great deal of visibility and some illumination of the road in front, which is enough for the city, and batteries last a very long time. Most pleasingly, the mounting system is very durable and it seems likely that it will withstand several years of regular use. The unit appears to be impervious to rain. As with all of the gear I've purchased from Planet Bike, a superior level of design is evident. A good, basic LED headlight.

Very good product .......bought it after reading the reviews on here . I was still a bit skeptical about the actual quality of light which would come out of this bicycle light ,but I was sure not dissapointed . The beam which comes out , is very bright and very focussed . It forms a small circle / elliptical shape on the light beam in front and very clear + bright .

Has 2 modes - flashing and constant-on

The light can be seen ffrom a far distance away . The color of the light is white instead of yellow , so was easier to spot when far away . Like I said , its very bright and with the flashing mode , would definatly warn the drivers of your presence . A very good buy , you would not be dissapointed , go for it .

Have not used the for the quick cam mount , just using it as a bike light on my handle bars .....

Some reviews have mentioned problems with the mount being too loose. That's not the case - the mount strap is adjustable and at its loosest setting out of the box. It retracts inward to tighten up, and there is a tab there to loosen it back up. I had no problems having a good, tight fit on my bike after adjusting the strap.

The light is very bright and energy-efficient. In comparison, my previous equally-bright halogen headlight required two C batteries and lasted for a tiny fraction of the time.

Overall excellent design.

This is a great little safety light, but understand that it is a safety light. That is to say it is a "see this and don't hit me" light vs. "let me see what I'm about to hit". Its not designed to illuminate the road in front if you, your need something with a lot more wattage and $ for that task. This little guy is designed to alert others to your existence so they don't turn you into a hood ornament.

I considered this unit vs. some of the smaller safety lights. I settle on this one for a couple of reasons
1 - It takes 2x AA batteries vs. 2x "N" cells which can be a pain to find.
2 - It seems way more durable. Good solid plastic (yea, its still plastic).
3 - Changing the batteries is very easy and doesn't require any tools or frustration. The front of the unit rotates, unlocks comes off.
4 - I'm going to guess its better weather sealed than the other units.
5 - Its brighter but not too bright, I ride with a group at night and I didn't want the flashing thing to give off too much like as this can be distracting in some scenarios.

On the down side it is bigger, bulkier and heavier than some of the smaller units, but that's the price you pay for AA.

The light it puts out seems adequate for the job. Its equal to a medium grade LED headlamp. The button is a bit hard to push but won't be accidentally activated. The first push makes it flash, the second push is steady and the next push turns it off.

The mount is nice in that it doesn't require a screw driver to mount, though it is a bit more complicated. I was a bit concerned that it wouldn't fit on my oversized handlebars but it had enough play.

The mount is adjustable in two ways.

This product's light is actually quite good; it's a "spot" light, but the projected light is a perfect circle, VERY large, and has a decent amount of falloff for seeing surrounding areas. The projected spot itself is paper-white (a sign of high-quality LEDs), and is decent. The light requires two AA batteries. One negative to the light itself is that pushing the on button once results in blink mode rather than steady mode. Not a very good default!

However, the mounting bracket is a complete travesty. Instructions and box claim it will mount "on any bar", which is completely false -- maximum bar size permitted is 30mm, which Planet Bike claims is "oversized".

Anyone who owns a Giant Yukon 2005 or later will not be able to use this mounting bracket, because the bar on the Yukon is not a consistent size, thus you must mount things at the base of the bar (near the headstem/middle), which is about 37mm. Otherwise, the light will slide up and down the bar quite easily. Additionally, the majority of the mounting bracket band consists of plastic, with an "adjustable rubber grip", which provides very little grip. Thumbs down.

Planet Bike should redesign the mounting bracket for this light, but keep the light itself. Two stars for the light, but minus 3 due to the atrocious mounting bracket.

I bought this light after suffering through several department store purchases. I can't believe how much money I could have saved if I had just bought this light to begin with. It is very well made and gives a good solid light. I noticed too that it was a bit loose on the handle bars even though I did tighten the strap as suggested by another reviewer. Electrical tape solves the problem. I'm even thinking of buying another one so I can have dual headlights.
