          Good value, works as described. beware the bracket for handlebars is not big enough for fat handle bar mounting.

          Purchased this after a near miss. It's not getting any safer out there. The thinking is to be seen as much as possible, both the front and near light have a strobe setting. Use it on every ride. Could make rides safer.

          Recreational riding in town and on the trails. Purchased this light combo so I could be seen and also to illuminate my path when it starts to get dark or on early mornings. But I feel that the front light isn't bright enough for illuminating my path. Also, would have liked for it to be able to recharge the batteries via USB or an outlet.

          I bought this so cars would be able to see me, not for me to be able to see the road.....but I was suprised that the front light is very bright, and I imagine if I was out late on a summer evening, it may actually help me see any potholes in the road.

          I feel safe with this lights on my road bike.

          I clipped the near light on my saddle bag. I attached the front light on my handlebar along with a bike computer. I had to remove the reflectors that came with the bike.

            I commute to work and found that early mornings are getting darker and darker, so I ordered this combo lights. It was a GREAT Value for the price and really happy with its efficiency. The beam from the front light is so wide and I can see the road in front of me clearly. The rear lights with its flashing is visible enough for cars to see me on the side of the road so they give me my space and veer around when they could. I'm totally impressed with these little gadgets. Nashbar has a great product here.

              I have not had this product very long, so I can not comment on durability, how long the batteries last, etc... I can say that I was surprised at how much light the front light gives off. I purchased this product exclusively so that I can be seen by motorists at night, but the front light actually gives off a decent amount of light and helps me see where I am going. The back light works well too. As long as this product lasts and does not break, I will be very satisfied with it.

                  The rear red light is very bright. The front light is not so bright but I never ride at dusk or dim lighting. Some would probably like the front light to be brighter.

                    Had to make a shimso the headlight would fit on the smaller diameter handbar on a crossover bike.

                      Use this on my trips on main roads. Lights are very bright and I find motorists pay more attention when I use the lights. Fewer close calls. Motorists today can be rude and inconsiderate but the lights have a calming affect on them. Easy install and I will see how the battery life will work out. I plan on using rechargeables.

                        Comments about Nashbar Beacon Combo Light Set:

                        I recently acquired a recumbent trike, as due to a stroke I can no longer ride on 2 wheels. The trike is low to the ground, and as much of my riding is on suburban streets I needed to increase my visibility to inattentive drivers. The red light is extremely bright even in strong sunlight. I use 2 of the front lights in flashing mode, to accentuate I'm wider than the average cyclist. I am very pleased with the attention these draw, I often get comments on how well they make me visible...the dual fast flashing looks like a cop car's white flashers in the dark. I could have spent hundreds on brighter night lights, but after extensive research these are most bang for the bucks.

                        I have 100 mile on these on the orig batteries, but the fact they use regular batteries is also a benefit since I don't leave my driveway without these turned on.
