Red and blue flashing rear lights(8 posts)

Red and blue flashing rear lightscp123

Does anybody happen to know anywhere where I could order/buy red and blue flashing LED rear lights? I've got all the usual red flashing gear, but on a dark night on a busy road, they can just kind of disappear in all the other car lights. Recently I was overtaken by an absolute rocket on a bike and I noticed that he had a red and blue flashing rear light. It stood out sooo prominantly and I thought WOW! Perhaps because it looked like a police car light, it seemed to get the attention. I spoke to a couple of local bike shops here (Australia) and they didn't stock any.

Does anybody have one, does anybody know where I could get one. I'd be willing to get one in addition to existing lights - simply because the blue had great "stand out" value.

thanks claire

Canberra. Much closer to Sydney than Perth. And because there are a number of cycle paths in the city, some car drivers think we should stay on them and keep off the roads. Hence I light up like a christmas tree if I have to.

I'm moving to Sydney in less than 3 weeks. I can't wait to get there. Any advice on clubs and such while I'll in Australia?

Lightman Strobes are xenon strobe lights that come in a variety of colors (including blue).

Vistalite offers a strobing unit with different colored lenses... I run several flashers on my UAV (both LED and Xenon) including a white and blue strobe along with a red Eclipse... very noticable. I use rechargable NiMh batteries for excellent overall economy.

One caveate... check with local laws on the colors... some jurisdictions restrict certain flashing tail colors... even on a bike.

Be the bike.
