    Bright. And then some.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    These are very, very bright. I was totally surprised when I pointed them towards a dark corner of the house and turned them on. I also like the three working modes (strobe-flash-always on). Having two of these and enabling the strobe mode creates a fun effe...
    Cons:
    While these do make you visible to others, I'd still not use them as my main light source in the complete dark. I use these alo...

    Fun and safety in one package.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    These shine a nice red light all around your bike. They shine bright, so you are easily visible. These also make heads turn as everyone wants to see what is that on your bike. Mounting them is easy. Once mounted, they stay on (provided you screwed them on t...
    Cons:
    Don't really appear to be waterproof, so I'm worried about the first time I get caught with these in the rain. Also, the mechan...

    Worth the money.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    These are proper batteries. Hold a lot of juice, easily recharged, last a long time. The plastic case in which you get these is super usable and holds the batteries in one place, so they don't roam around my bag.
    Cons:
    None that I can think of. These simply work as stated.

    Not so bad when all things considered.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It makes a properly audible noise. Mounting it is easy. Can be rotated to your needs.
    Cons:
    The spring on which the ringer stays is quite flimsy and not strong enough, so everytime you go over a small bump, it will ring...

    Quite the bang for the buck.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Extremely bright, people really can't say they didn't see you with this one mounted to your bike. Looks good, sturdy enough. Once properly mounted to the seat post, it stays there, no movement or any similar other antics. You also get 2 batteries in the pac...
    Cons:
    Only two modes of light. The power on button can be a bit tricky to press sometimes (especially if you're wearing gloves, right...

    Solid protection against the weather, but not much more.

    posted by robogo82 on 03/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I thought XL might be a bit too small, but actually fits on my hand (I have long fingers). Look great, they keep my hands and knuckles warm while cycling. They are soft and appear to be sturdy (at least the fingers and the palms, see cons for more).
    Cons:
    These look good, but are not really that well built. The insides of the fingers have excess material, so if you have longer nai...

    Good to have.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It has everything you need in case of a puncture (apart from a pump). Neat box, not too big, just enough to be able to carry it around with you, and yet big enough to carry some more patches or more glue.
    Cons:
    The scraper does not seem usable, replaced it with sandpaper. The tire hooks look fragile.

    Actually, not bad.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The price is acceptable. The build quality is... well, solid, is put together quite well, with a couple of issues (see cons). Protects against the wind quite well, makes breathing in colder weather much easier.
    Cons:
    The build quality is okay at best, I had to do slight modifications with scissors (the nose opening wasn't cut all the way). Th...

    Interesting piece of kit.

    posted by robogo82 on 05/03/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very bright light, almost impossible not to be seen on the bike with these. Easily mounted. Waterproof.
    Cons:
    Mine got chipped by a small piece of asphalt the very first day (still works, though). To use it, you have to tighten its piece...
