Special Rear Light
#1
Had a little while spare in Penarth (Cardiff) the other day so popped into The Bike Shop ;D
Cool little "straight out of my childhood" place with a Raleigh Chopper bolted to the outside wall & a Grifter in the window 8)

Anyway bought a rear light whilst in there.  Not very special looking, not particularly cheap, usual LED & flashing modes.
BUT..... It has lasers that create your own moving "bike lane"

Plenty bright enough & really grabs the attention.  The picture is in the kitchen with the lights on..... good for you commuters.
The lines are about 500mm either side of the bike.
You can have the lines flashing too Undecided honestly 8)

I got a cheapo one on Ebay from China for under 5 quid but lines don't flash Hardly used it but the other day discovered the "laser" wouldn't turn off so had to remove the batteries. And the plastic clip is crap. Oh well... Hope yours is better.

Quite taken by these when i saw them in the commuter thread a while back... even thought about getting one myself until I came to the conclusion i dont cycle enough in the dark to warrant replacing my other one  Big Grin

I got of these on both the roadie and the Marin. Working brilliantly so far; anything that makes me more visible to other road users is a winner, especially when they were about a tenner each...
