Ledtec ako sa harap
Cateye rapid 3 sa likod....

set your ledtec to blinkmode pag mejo maliwanag para mas makukuha mo attention ng mga vehicles lalo na sidemirror lang sila umaasa...will save your battery pa

Thumbs up Re: How do you make your bike visible on night rides?

I got my LEDTEC torchlight bicycle handlebar mounted in SM Marikina at yun ang last stock nila. Bang for the buck talaga siya.

ako 3 lighs sa harap isa for blinker, yung dalawa ginagawa kong high beam at low beam, then sa likod one red blinking light naka attach sa seatpost, another sa bag ko, and sometimes may extra LED light din sa likod.

mukhang super OA pero mas okay na maging OA kesa makaaksidente ng mga lasing na driver sa madaling araw

Bought it. Ang mahal pala. P450 yung reflectorized, P250 yung non-reflectorized.



Tried it tonight and it works as promised as a face mask and as a bandana to hide my helmet hair.

Kapag po gabi or madaling araw ako aalis lagi ko chini-check yung blinkers ko sa likod kung malakas pa tsaka po pag may bag ako tinatali ko sa bag yung dati kong blinker na sira yung clip, para kahit papano mapakinabangan pa tsaka dagdag visibility na din po sa gabi, yung blinker ko sa seat post naka steady while yung blinker ko na nakatali sa bag nagfla-flash. Important din may flashlight sa harap ng bike para kita po kayo sa side mirror ng mga sasakyan sa harapan. =)

bukod sa mini-wang-wang (LED), LED tail lights, headlights, ive got some "Neon Lights".... I called it MTB.....Mala-Tron na Bike!

i bought some neon lights over the internet just a few months ago. actually dapat project ko ito para sa riding jacket ko, pero naisipan kong ilagay sa MTB...

may tatlong lighting setting ito: steady, slow blinking, rapid blinking.

powered by 2 AA battery, very minimal ang power consumption nya dahil LED lang ang ilaw at pinasok sa isang fiber optic line. hindi nga lang water proof yung battery pack/lighting module nya, pero ang neon cord ay water proof.


Result......madaling mapansin sa gabi. kapag may nakakakitang mga bata ang sabi "Uy si Tron! Tron! Tron!"

may mga reserba pa akong mga neon lights at dadagdagan ko pa sana ng neon lights ang frame/fork, kaso tinamad na akong maglagay, hehehe!


sorry for my crappy pics, actually sa gabi maliwanag ang neon lights...

I have a Cat Eye Omni5 tail light and a Cat Eye Nano Shot front light on the bike. I keep both running regardless of the time of day; I set the front light to strobe mode when the sun is out.

I don't stop at just making the bike visible; I make myself visible as well. This is why I chose a bright yellow Fox Transition helmet. I also have an Adidas running windbreaker for use in the rain or on chilly nights; it has bright yellow piping and reflective strips on the neck and coattail areas against the dark green of the main fabric.

Default Visibility of Bikers at Night

For the safety of all fellow bikers who do bike rides when dark or at night lalo na sa mga bike commuters at night riders, meron po bang standard na accessories / gears like blinkers at reflectorized vests at iba pang accessories? Ano po ang pinakamaayos na paraan at maging visible ang isang biker sa gabi na hindi naman magmukhang krismas tree.
Sa mga mods (Sir Anthrax, etc.) paki-merge na lang po kung may similar threads.

Salamat ng marami!

I think mas-ok na ma-notice ka sa daan kahit na mukha kang Christmas tree sa daan. Kaysa accident pa ang aa-butin mo.
