These are for the bicycle version which flash a lot more than the car version I was running previously. Come with an extra set of batteries too.
Thanks for the tip.TWD

I've never seen these things before (can you tell I don't get out much).

Seems like a good idea. A little bit of extra movement is enough to catch the eye.

Two questions. 1.) Are they light? (no pun intended, I mean weight wise) 2.) Are they waterproof?

1. Well they are heavy if you are someone who doesn't run presta valve covers because of the weight. For the rest of us the weight is imperceptible.

2. Waterproof? Dunno, I live in Nevada. We don't need to ride when it rains!
So they have them for bikes now?Ken of Fresno

The ones I had were for cars and didn't really flash much on the bike. I just might pick up a pair of the bike ones to see how they do. Anything to make us more visible out there is good. They look kinda cool too.
