        Comments about Nashbar Beacon Combo Light Set:

        Just a quick review for someone looking at this. I purchased this light to be seen while riding, it does that job better than nothing. The taillight does the job and is bright.

        That being said, if you are purchasing this light for any type of cycling, I probably would not recommend it anywhere dark. While cycling or mountain biking after sun down, this light is definitely not bright enough for you to see the trail/road. This would be adequate for walking, but nothing that is faster or required more visibility.

        My two cents.

          Comments about Nashbar Beacon Combo Light Set:

          I bought this light set to be seen, not to see. I do not ride in the dark so I can't speak to how well the head lamp would work at night. The lights are very bright, especially in the dawn, at dusk, or in shaded areas. The head lamp is bright enough to alert oncoming drivers of your presence and the tail light allows drivers to see you when approaching from behind. This light is much brighter than the first one I purchased from Road ID.

            BUT THIS SET!! It is ALL you need!! I just bought my 2nd set to have extras. I've been told that the tail light can be seen 2 miles away. The headlight beats those fancy headlights, (one of which I have, and replaced), by it's simplicity. Another great Nashbar brand item that beats the more expensive, name brand items, completely!! I'm TOTALLY satisfied with this purchase!!

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

                  Comments about Nashbar Beacon Combo Light Set:

                  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.

                  Comments about Nashbar Beacon Combo Light Set:

                  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.
