2.0 out of 5 stars Problems arise often, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is indeed a good idea for having 7 tones of horns plus the brake light.
Nonetheless, the device is totally NOT water-proof and thus the tone was automatically 'switched on' even when nobody was on the bike after a heavy rain (even my bike has been covered with a water-proof cloth). As a result, I often have to dissemble the device in order to soak the water out. Unfortunately, recently the device's horn has been disconnected from the power source after clearing the water.
Moreover, the front lights (turn signals, warning signal, and the night light)are all in red and the turn signals are only 2 inches apart from each other. Such design causes confusion to the other road users.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wireless with cause some problems, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The wireless device actually caused a problem when there are there are other magnets or road sensors nearby. For instance, The meter showed the speed at 73.8km/h given that my bike was completely stopped without motions for 5 minutes.
What is more, the meter display cannot be mounted tightly and it rotates occasionally and as a result it could not show the speed of my bike since it could not detect the signal from the speed sensor.
Generally speaking, if the sensor and the meter can be connected with wire, and/or the sensor can be mounted with a hard-plastic collar rather than soft-plastic cable ties, this product would be perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but also with room for improvement, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good points:
1. I can be clearly seen by the vehicles from sideways (i.e. either from the left or from the right) with this wheel-light.
2. The light is designed that it can be seen from both sides and thus it is cost-saving as I do not have to purchase an extra one for being seen from another side.
Bad points:
1. Hard to switch the power on/off as occasionally I would have to press the button forcefully.
2. Mounting is quite loose on a rod of the bike wheel and thus a cable tie is required, thus it is suggested that a belt ring for the centre part of the device would be preferred.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy viewing but difficult installation, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good point: the mirror can be extended out of the side edge of my bike and thus I can view the vehicles from behind clearly.
Bad point: apparently the screws are too long during the process of installation and for this reason I had to tear off a piece of paper into small pieces in order to fill up the space so that the mirror would not become loose.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good and Bad Things Exist, 20 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good things:
- Lights large enough.
- Clear to be seen at night.

Bad things:
- Front part always detached.
- Wireless synchronisation always fails, often need to reinstall the batteries (so it is suggested that with wires would be much better).
- Rear part always moved by no reasons.
