« on: 17 November 2015, 21:26:22 »

If they go round dazzling people there'll be even more squashed bicyclists!  ::)  ;D

Yeah that's rediculous, even for me.  I have seen some front light systems priced in the 4 figures as well.

My lights cost about 60-100 a set and due to the high usage they often get replaced once a year.  My current lights are high intensity, the fronts are pointed to the ground and I cycle between flashing and stable beam depending on the lighting conditions but the rear flashes a directed cone of red light behind me so intense that it is uncomfortable to overtake me too close.  If I cant rely on motorists to give me space through common sense/being human toward others/the law then I will force them :y
