... not something many on this forum would use... but for the young at heart...

I received my set (6 yellow) a couple days ago... and just finished mounting them on one of my MTBs (3 per wheel) for a test ride... neat. I do a few fun night rides per season... and these are sure to do what I (subliminably) do best... draw attention to ME!!!

Yes, it's a "Hokey" idea (heavy in the last place you'd want extra weight)... but I like having a bit of fun with my seriousness.

Very cool. Just picked up some of the multiple color tireflies. These look way beyond those. Might need them for next year's midnight ride :-)
Cool, but at nearly $30 a spoke, hmmmmjose_Tex_mex

I am not sure I will spend $180 on this. If it were $29 a wheel I might just do it as a goof.

I've no experience with this brand... and for the most part, I agree, that $30 per blade is 'spensive... but...

a. they are relatively sophistocated (infrared communication and programmable display).
b. you only live once (we most often regret the things we don't do).

I got a set last year, after looking at Hokey Spokes (very cool but pricey). Nothing like visibility from the side when riding home from work after dark. Xtremelites run on batteries and the pack sits near the hub but does unbalance the wheel. Not a big deal as I am riding on old mtbike with fenders and lights and rack and...not too worried about speed.
