|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.|
