5.0 out of 5 stars Supercool, 18 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Monkey Light M210 - 80 Lumen Bike Light - 360° Visibility - Wheel & Spoke Light (Sports)
I bought this about 2 months ago or so basically because it looked cool. I also figured the extra light would help when the clocks went back and i started doing my 100 miles a week commute in the dark.

Installing it was fairly easy, zip ties'R'Us, but they do the job and they even give you a metal zip tie to stop yobbos and hoodies stealing your lights when you are off loving life away from your bicycle. I didn't bother using this as i put this on my road bike which is only used between home and work and is secure anyway. The light to battery connection isn't perfect as it has come apart once, though this was probably down to how i had zip tied it to the spoke.

So, now I have started using this in the dark going home i have to say these lights are pretty damn cool. Cycling up the Bristol-Bath cycle path you get a few comments shouted by the aforementioned hoodies exclaiming that they too think your bike lights are pretty damn cool.

On a serious note, the visibility these offer to drivers are rather good. As they spin around your tyre they are changing colours and flashing pretty brightly and as most people haven't seen anything quite like this you are noticed on your bike. As i go up a busy A-road through rush hour this is pretty invaluable as I don't really fancy being taken out by a an old dear in a fiat 500 who should have been off the road in 1974. All in all, this was a good purchase for both increasing my coolness levels and not dying.

Some obvious points - These are rubbish in daytime, the battery compartment sits on the wheel spoke and spins with the wheel and the rainbow pattern is the best. Multicolour is the way forward.
