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!
- no maintenance
- reasonably bright
- 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
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."
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?
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.

Awesome technology, it works as advertised. But do not use just these as your main source of light **** They attach to the axle of your bike so are low and are not very bright. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

You might need to bend the metal bar in two places to align the light to the magnet better, otherwise it works like a charm!Published 5 months ago by Adrian Morales
these are great, but I have a rear rack with panniers, so the light is a bit blocked (its also a bit low for cars to see since whel hubs are only a foot off the ground). Read morePublished 6 months ago by Steven Gibson
