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.

UPDATE: So I finally tried them out at night. The red rear light seems to be fine. However, as others have mentioned, the front white LED simply does not put out enough light for you to see in the dark, which I knew was the case, but I just had to try. On the beach bike path, I plowed into sand drifts that I couldn't see in time and into the sand when I couldn't tell that the bike path had swerved. So, one for the DUH file, these are very good for being seen at night, but not to light your path.
I had been using them for about a week and had to take an extra early ride in to work. It was my first when it was dark out. When I turned on the white light on the handlebars it shone in a wide arc, over 180 degrees up and down and left and right. I couldn't see because the light was shinning in my face as well as everywhere else.
A piece of black tape on the top part of the light and I was soon on my way. An easy fix to this if it happens to you.
Still riding with it and it is still working well. It's getting a bit darker every morning this time of year.
As other have noted this light shouldn't be counted on to light your way in the dark (I usually ride on lighted streets) but it will make you much more visible to others on the road.
As discussed in the original review, I've now mounted one of the rear lights on the back of my helmet, a Bell Aguila. The light fits extremely well in the back most indentation/air flow vent on the helmet in either the vertical or horizontal position. Better yet, I mounted it without modifying the helmet or the light and it can be removed in seconds.
I used four rubber bands and passed them around the "upright" for the base of skull "catch" on the helmet's liner portion. The ends of the rubber bands are pulled out and slipped over the clip for the light. Given that UV eats rubber here, I put a pipe-cleaner around the clip and the band as a failsafe should the rubber bands fail.
Pull the light out 1/4" and you can rotate it to the position you like best. A bit of wiggling when seating the light will get edges, clips, arms and such aligned and the light stays tightly, smoothly, in the back of the helmet.
Why all this effort you might ask? I'm a true believer. I'm alive because of Bell helmets and making myself visible (though I didn't do ENOUGH 'back then', I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my helmet). With kids, I will do everything in my power to make them visible and safe wherever possible.
In any event, at near zero cost, 2 minutes of "labor" and the slightest dash of creative brain power, you can install a light on your helmet that makes you VASTLY more visible via the (higher) location, the movement imparted by pedaling, gossiping with your riding partner or just the movement of your head as you look around in wonder.
This tiny modification makes me MUCH more relaxed when riding around traffic and makes our rides much more enjoyable.Read more ›

These little lights are great! The rear one is a little too large for the back of my bike and therefore does not stay in place, but for the price, I certainly can't complain!Published 1 month ago by Elena Jambusarwalla
