The ultimate coolness on a bike...(9 posts)

The ultimate coolness on a bike...PeterRider

A bit heavy with 3 AA batteries per flashing spoke, and quite expensive. If the price was lower I would love to get some :-) My bike's already on its way to become a christmas tree as I'm adding more rear lights and reflective stripes. Well, I had a meeting with a car last year, didn't win, and don't want it to happen again.

the drivers looking at your wheels than paying attention to where they are going? These do look pretty fun for a winter/night training bike.
Wow! and only $360!Matno

If you get 6 on each wheel that is. Cool idea. Way too pricey. I'd rather just get those cheap little valve stem cover lights that light up when they rotate and are all over eBay.
where did you see those on ebay ? :)PeterRider

I have TireFlys on my commuter. I use valve converters then put the tirefly on.

Do they make you significantly more visible? Looks like a good idea.
I see them on cars here in the Bronx all the timeMatno

I guess just the fact that I see them means something. The fact that I notice them at night from my 4th story window means they're pretty bright.
