                I mounted this light to the back of my helmet, I ride early in the morning and I like having the extra flashing light for cars coming up on me. The unit is very light and bright I feel it is easy to see.

                      Plenty bright with an excellent mounting system. The light has a back clip (unlike many) so you can attach it to a seat bag or messenger bag loop. The hard mount goes just about anywhere on the bike and stays solid. Only used it for a month but no looseness or other problems so far. With only 3 LEDs the flash modes are limited, but otherwise a good light at a good price.

                      Comments about Nashbar Beacon 1/2 Watt LED Tail Light:

                      I am a tail-light junkie and like to test and experiment with them. I have found that this is one of the brightest tail-lights that I have found regardless of price. The only one I have found that is noticeably brighter is the NiteRider Solas 2-watt which is considerably more expensive. The Nashbar light is also well built. I have bought some for my wife and daughter. Great price for a great light.
