NYC bike snob sent me
-Sweet usb charging setup
-Not super cheap
-Easily stolen if left on the bike
The Bike Snob NYC was hawking these pretty consistently for years so I thought I'd give it a shot. Bought both front and rear and commuted with them. They're solid and effective, I've had no issues with them at all. They mount quickly and the usb charging on them is super cool.
Nice "Be-Seen" Headlight
Integral USB connector
Charge-level LED indicator
Five LED light modes
The silicone mounting system looks and feels weak or fragile, but it's not. "Looks" might be "deceiving", and they're often our sole decision-making criterion, so why not beef-up the bands?
I'd equally appreciate a longer battery-life for the Fast Flash light mode -- although the manufacturer's website claims 3 hours for steady use, and 50 hours in Eco-flash mode, my light runs out of lumens after 3.5 hours of Fast Flash operation (yes, I recharge fully after every ride).
On/off switch tricky, hard to use
Bike mount not user friendly, have to stretch it correct way or not secure
Be seen day or night
Bright LEDs allow you to be seen far away
Clips easily to bars / Removes easily
USB connector hides well
Easy to charge
Battery Life isn't great for longer commutes - usually needs charging every couple days
It fits nicely with all the other pieces and allows me to be seen on my morning commute (5:30am) and on the way home (3:30pm). It provides just enough of a visual distraction to catch a driver's eye. It's saved me several times in the couple months I've owned it. Well worth the price and peace of mind it provides.
