I have used these lights for about two months now. They are light-weight and very easy to mount and adjust. What I like the best is that they make my commute hassle free. I no longer need to think about if I left my regular battery lights at home or at work and I don't have to worry about battery levels. The flashing diodes are bright enough to catch the attention of other drivers but they are not bright enough to illuminate the road. If you bike on unknown roads without street lights, you probaby need an additional headlight. The savings on not having to buy/recharge batteries will hopefully make up for the higher price in the long run.

These are incredibly low maintenance - once you get them on the bike, that is. Pay very close attention to the diagram on the back of the package to install them on your bike, or you'll spend too much time trying to figure it out (like I did - over 2 hours). However, never having to change the batteries and never having to worry about someone stealing them (they're too complex and on too well, once you get them on, to be easy to thieve away) is really wonderful.

One drawback to actual use is that they quit blinking when you are at a standstill. This should not be a problem if you are in a very urban setting at night and intersections are well lit. But, if not, consider something brighter that continues to flash at a stop.

In downtown Atlanta, they perform great!

Pros

- no maintenance

- reasonably bright

Cons

- does not fit on my Specialized MTB, for road bikes only? the mounting part would need a wider range to bring the light close from the magnets. I only managed to mount it on my front wheel.

- light a bit low, drivers are not used to look that low

- would need 3-4 magnets per wheel to make the lights blink more, that's what I did since I only used the front light

My municipality requires having a headlight when riding a bicycle at night...so I figured the Reelight would be a nice way of adding a permanent...theft resistant light to my old 1980 Schwinn Suburban...and avoid getting a ticket on the rare occasion I'm out after dark.

They work. They were somewhat easy to install...and they don't create any drag like the generator lights on my husband's 1972 Schwinn Suburban do.

The drawback is that they don't actually provide any road light...which is fine when driving around town where there's plenty of streetlights...but if you're thinking you can use this as your primary road light...you'll be disappointed.

Anyway...I took off one star...because the screws that hold the light onto the bracket...are a pain in the tushie to get tightened down. I think this is to make them difficult to remove...but I had to crank down on them hard enough I was worried about stripping out the screws...or breaking the light. I almost wish the light and mounting bracket assembly was integrated.

Someone can still steal these lights..but they'll need a wrench...and a phillips screwdriver...and quite a bit of time to remove the light and magnet assemblies. The nice thing is they look like an extra reflector to the casual eye...not a light...and they're below "eye level."

I just received my SL100, and it also came with 2 magnets instead of 4. I suspect that the product once shipped with 4 magnets, and now just 2. Also, mine looked used .... Scratched plastic parts, wear on screws. This can be due to bad manufacturing quality or someone shipping refurbs as new. Either way, I am not happy with the quality of the items I received.

BTW, the number of magnets on a wheel determines the number of flashes you get per revolution of the wheel. 2 magnets cause the light to flash twice per revolution, so the number of magnets is really a big deal.

Can people who received their light sets comment on how many magnets come with it?

I was pretty skeptical of these when I ordered them, but they proved me wrong. I thought that they would be too dim to offer any safety, or they would be dificult to install. Nope - they are brighter than my cat eye blinkees, and easier to install than a bike computer. I live in rural Alabama, and so there are no streetlights where I commute. I used to have to change my blinkee batteries monthly! Sure beats spending hundreds on an internal hub lighting system!

I saw these lights for the first time in Copenhagen. There are no wire, no switches, no batteries. Once you mount them, they just work. When you roll they blink, it's just that simple. Reelight SL120 Flashing Compact Bicycle Headlight and Tail Light Set have a capacitor, which will continue blinking for 2 minutes after you stop.

Sadly they are seemingly unknown here in the states, I have yet to see them in a bike shop here in San Francisco and have been asked repeatedly where I got them.

I've had these for about 3 weeks now, the lights work great but they do not flash frequently enough for city riding. When I tried to contact the distributor to get more magnets, I was told that they don't carry replacement magnets (but they're working on it). If you try to order magnets from the company, they ship from Europe and are 7 Euro each plus shipping. Until the magnets are readily available for a much more reasonable price, I will not be using these as anything more than emergency backups, as they flash far too infrequently.
