      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.

          Very, very bright. Easy switch to operate. This is my fourth one, they're on all of my bikes. The batteries last a long time.

            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.

                  Flashing mode with all LEDs operating is brilliant. This light will be immediately noticed, day or night. Perfect for my occasional forays onto roads.

                  At this price, any negatives are of little consequence.

                          I think the mount is pretty steady, yet you can unclip the light from the mount easily. I use one with the mount on my road bike, and I use one clipped to a seat bag on my mountain bike. For the price, it's a great taillight. I have read reviews on more expensive ones, but I bought another of these because of the value. It is bright enough to annoy your friends if in a group ride (only slight downside).
