Princeton Tech Push Light Review

Princeton Tech Push Front Light MSRP: $49.99 Power: 100 Lumens powered by an LED Burn Time: 63 Hours Blinking 14 Hours Low 4 Hours High Initial Thoughts of the Push Light I received the Princeton Tech Push light in for review last fall.  After my accident in October I wasn’t able to really test it as it should be tested in a true commuter/road aspect.  A few weeks ago I started using it as part of my daily front light for my commuter.  …

PDW Aether Demon

Review: Portland Design Works Aether Demon

It’s pretty apparent how I feel about bike lights and the level of safety they add to your bike rides. A blinking front and rear light are found on most of my bikes, including some of my mountain bikes if I’m going to hit the road on the way to find my dirt diet. When Emily started commuting to the hospital every morning we purchased a couple lights for her All City Nature Boy that were bright, but it became apparent that the USB fro…

Bike After Dark Fireball Mark II

Review: Bike After Dark Fireball Mark II Wheel Light

…cyclists everywhere. As a daily commuter, I find myself riding in the worst visibility conditions: early morning light, evening dusk, rain, fog, and nighttime darkness. I wear high-visibility yellow, I strap a riot of blinking lights to the front and back of my bike – I’d get a head-to-toe glow in the dark tattoo if I thought it would help – all in a quest to be noticed by drivers. It was with this quest in mind that I jumped at the o…

Interbike ’12: Light & Motion TAZ: Ultra-Lightweight, Rechargeable, Waterproof

…east on the trail with a flood beam so wide that you will be able to navigate tight switchbacks without a helmet light. By combining the brightness of a performance light with the safety features of a commuter light (such as side lights that pulse and can be manually turned off when not needed on the trail), the TAZ is the very definition of crossover, accomplishing both tasks without compromise. Featuring three high-end CREE LEDs and a custom-de…

Preparing for Burn 24 (Plus a Light Promo)

…n the middle of the night!) A few more last decent rides left before race day. Tonights ride will be to test out light setups, battery burn times, and night setup. I’ll have a good amount of rambling thoughts after sitting 4 hours in the dark tonight. If you are around tonight not doing anything, come ride with me! Will be leaving the house and riding down to North Meck Park. If you need lights I got a couple extra sets for borrowing. Spe…

Knog Blinder Light Review

Knog Blinder Arrow Light Review

We all know my obsession for lights and bags. I have so many of both as I’m always trying to find the perfect one. Rechargeable lights are something I really love. Especially the latest push for USB rechargeable. You see, before lights and bags I am a tech freak. iPad, iMac, MacBook Air, GoPro’s, Canon cameras, iPhones, you get the idea. I always have a computer with me, so charging a light through USB is really easy for me. Much eas…

Introduction of the Cateye TL-LD570 Reflex Auto Light

We recently received the Cateye TL-LD570 Reflex Auto Light and it quickly was installed on the rear of my Salsa Casseroll.  Our initial spin around the block gave the impression that this rectangle of a light is bright, and the reflector works wonderfully.  Something I didn’t realize I was missing in a light. For now the light is mounted on the Salsa Casseroll seat tube but long term will be mounted and tested out on a rear rack.  The light l…

This Little Light of Mine, Using Lights at All Times

…d people are riding their bikes more and more. There are many reasons I believe you should have a front and rear light on blinking at all times on the bike, at the end it is safety and keeping you intact on your bike. Reasons to Use Front and Rear Blinky Lights All The Time I have been left hooked in a major intersection and fully believe a front light would have made the old man see me Make yourself easier to spot It makes cars more aware of yo…
