Default Tail Lights

regarding tailights/safety lights, meron ako topeak na saddle bag yung me provision para sabitan ng ilaw. ano ba medyo malakas na LED type na pwede dun? medyo nai-apply ko obsession ko sa flashlights dito kaya pasensiya na. me ilan narin ako tailight sa collection ko (cherry bomb, rapid-5 and yung topeak alienlux). sa seatpost mounting walang problema sa dalawa pero pag sa saddlebag na ilalagay wala space sa seatpost lalo na pag ikakabit pa yung fender. yung alienlux medyo nahihinaan pa ko e. medyo mahal din kasi yung bago ng topeak na redlite mega.

parang ang laking problema no no? LOL pero importante talaga sa akin visibility day or night, hinahanap ko yung me vertical clip mount para sakto dun sa saddlebag... TIA

^sir, magkano yung redlite mega?

gamit ko lang ngayon as tail light right under my saddle bag is yung cateye tl-ld610 then cree flashlight as headlight from an online seller. kasya pa naman pag nilalagay ko yung topeak fender.

alam ko sir yung cateye, may accessory na pwede mo mailagay dun sa saddle bag ng topeak. or ayaw mo ba yung rapid 5 sa ilalim mismo ng saddle? di ba may ganun na mount ang rapid 5?

Redlite Mega is sold sa Bikeplus sa MOA for P1,380... malakas siya and maganda review sa BikeRadar, 5 stars me thinks.

Yes naghanap ako kanina sa Cartimar nung bracket na yan ng CatEye na kinakabit sa saddle rail to no avail. Alam din nila Paulina's at Christys yung product pero di daw sila pinapadalhan sa delivery nila.

Yung binili ko kanina na Cateye TL na tig 300 maganda pagkaka mount sa saddlebag pero ang hina ng ilaw niya... malakas pa yung AlienLux, haha. Next dalaw ko sa mga LBS try ko yung nakita ko sa Ross na Infini...

Try ko ulit i-mount sa seatpost yung mga TLs after ko makakuha ng mudguards... of all the lights I have the best for me is my Rapid-5, the CherryBomb by NiteRider is next kaso dalawa lang setting niya compared sa R5. The AlienLux may not be brightest one but it definitely looks cool.

(I think our dear mods made this a separate thread. I remember putting my earlier post in the Bike Lights section... TY!)

@justice29

ganun ba? medyo mahal nga pero kung maganda talaga ang visibility niya, worth buying yan ilaw ng topeak. yung tl-ld610 ko sir, halos same ng rapid-5, predecessor niya. satisfied na din ako sa kanya pero thinking of trying out the rapid-5 for comparison sake.

try mo sir sa all-terra, baka meron sila kasi sa kanila ako nakakita ng spare na sensor magnet last time ako napadaan.

(oo nga, parang bike lights ang title nito kagabi)

Greetings!

I am looking for a bright and bang for the buck tail lights. Nasira kasi yung free na blinkers ko dati.

Any suggestions? And can you please specify where is the best place that I can buy it? Is the top peak redlite mega a bang for the buck? And kung may iba pa bang ka level nito na-pwedeng alternative?

Red lights goes to our primitive human common instinct, so better red.. means to stop... and they have to follow their sense instinctively... it is essential coz things you dont see might hurt you.. and things in you visible angle you can avoid.. kaya regardless of what brand we use basta working properly... easy does it.... ako i still use me red China made blinker's i dont even know the brand till now.... basta attach it at your rear and it will do the job.... now a days so many things to choose from and we really have to have one... better than sorry...

Sige sir! I will try to ask some LBS here if they have those or maybe you can give me the name of the shops where I can buy those lights. Mas maliwanag ba yun kaysa sa Cateye TL-LD150-R? According to the net kasi TL-LD610 and TL-LD650 yung Rapid 3 and Rapid 5.

nagtatawag na nga ako sir sa mga bike shop pero wala talaga. tatawagan ko pa lang ang bike plus. kung mabibigay nila ng 1k, sa tingin ko sulit na.

may review ako na nabasa na mas maliwanag daw ang rapid 3 sa rapid 5

@ sithruz - well good luck on your quest. ako naman im still looking for that saddle rail mount ng Cateye for the R5.

baka naman me nakakita sa inyo ng ganitong product nila.

yeah nakita ko narin review nung comparo between R3 & R5. Mas brighter nga R3 pero mas maganda battery life ng R5 pati modes niya. oks narin for daily use. yung Cherry Bomb nga ng NiteRider ang lakas ng center LED niya pwede nang rear foglamp ng kotse. masakit na sa mata sa rider sa likod, hehe. seldom ko na lang ginagamit.


@ pedz - alam ko yung nasa P1,250 yan sa isang LBS sa QC (glorious). pero yan yung auto Reflex. me red and white options. i'm not sure sa ibang LBS.

Default Re: Tail Lights

yung cateye ko, naisabak ko na sir sa malakas na ulan, so far so good.

@justice
tumawag na ako kanina sa bike plus, fixed price daw yun at lahat ng malapit na bike shop sa akin, tinawagan ko, wala daw sila redlite mega. still thinking kung worth the 1.3k or should i try the rapid5 soon.

eto ang makulit, isang shop sa quiapo, nagtanong ako kung may cateye rapid 5 (mas maganda pala pattern nito sa ld610), ang sagot sa akin, wala daw sila ganun, shimano lang daw ang rapid nila, siguro ang rinig eh rapidfire.

LOL oo Rapidfire intindi nung nakausap mo.

Kaw your choice kung papatusin mo yung RedLite Mega, hehe. San mo siya ikakabit? Sa seatpost or sa saddlebag? Ang ayoko lang kasi sa saddlebag mount nakayuko na yung ilaw, maganda sana kung medyo upright yung tutok niya.
