BikeGlow Lights Up Bright and Increases Safety
As a part time bike commuter I am always looking for ways to make myself more visible to the insane car drivers in Los Angeles, and one of the best ways to do that is to have lots of light on the bike. I use two blinking tail lights, one very bright handlebar mounted front light, and one helmet mounted front light. But the thing that was always missing was how to be visible from the side?
BIKEGLOW has not only solved this, but they have done it in a bullet proof product. As soon as I put it on my commuter bike (Franken Bike as I like to call her) and turned the BIKEGLOW on I knew that I was going to love this product. It took me no more than 10 minutes to install and have it lite up glowing blue.
So the next morning I headed out early to commute to work in the dark. I turned on all of my lights, including the BIKEGLOW and headed out into the obstacle course of LA traffic. I did not get more than a few blocks before some guy rolled up next to me at a red light and asked me what the cool blue light was on my bike. As I was explaining to him what the BIKEGLOW was, all he wanted to know as he so rudely interrupted my monologue is where to buy one.
The next day my buddy came over to borrow some bike tool he was sure never to return, and when we went into my garage the first thing he noticed was the new addition to my Fraken Bike. I turned it on and his eyes lite up, as he loudly pronounced “I Need One Of These”. It took all of one day for him to track down a BIKE GLOW and have it on his commuter bike for his next ride to school.
So, do I like the BIKEGLOW now that I have been using it for a few months. Simply YES!!!!! It has worked perfect, looks great, and is one of the best products you can buy to increase your safety while riding in the dark. And at just $25.00 it is priced right.
