Bicycle lights, one of the ultimate safety features for riding this time of year when it gets dark early or the sun never seems to peak out behind the clouds, are getting less expensive every day. But really, how good are they? How good can they be for less than $20?
We've now been using the #UFITBIKELIGHT for a week on our son's bicycle, especially as he rides home between 5-5:30 and it has gotten dark out.
First, let me mention the ease of installation. No tools needed! The light accepts 3 AAA batteries just like a flashlight, which in fact is exactly what it is. The unit is a flashlight that fits snugly in a handlebar mount. This makes it extremely versatile when you are out and about. The mount itself goes on easily with a few hand turns of the tightening screw. The rear reflector, even easier with a rubber clasp. And, the flashlight, also with a hand screw..
So far, the unit works great! It has 3 settings, high beam, low beam and strobe light. It's easy to turn on and off. The batteries seem to last, at least we haven't had to replace them yet. I'll need to wait until next year to see how the unit lasts season to season though.
