I made a crappy vid that is not worth watching. Seems the camera cannot pick up on it. I had Theresa film me while I buzzed our street 6 or so times, but none of those came out either.
The concept is pretty cool, but it is not something I would want on my bike more than just for fun every now and then because the thing adds about 1/2 a pound to your outer rim.
Basic bike accessories pretty much always take a 2032 coin battery. If you go to your local shop you will pay at least $2 a piece. On ebay or amazon you will get tons shipped to you on the uber cheap. I picked up 50 lithium 2032 coin batteries for $10 shipped from Amazon prime. All our lights are kicking and we still have over 40 left.
The cool rim lights Theresa bought us took two 2016 coin batteries, but a 2032 can take the place of both of them no problem. Aint nobody gonna not see us at night.
LINCOLN (NE) August 21, 2012 â€“ The Lower Platte South Natural Resources District has closed its three recreational trails to bicycle traffic effective immediately. The trails are cracking due to the extreme drought conditions, creating a hazard for the many bicyclists that utilize the trails.
The NRD, according to General Manager Glenn Johnson, has been trying to repair the cracking for about two weeks, â€œbut new cracks keep opening up and the filled ones are re-opening.â€ Johnson said the cracks are deep and some are wider than a bicycle tire and more open up every day. He said, â€œAt certain times of the day, shadows make it difficult to see the cracks, making it very hazardous for bicycles.â€ Signs will go up as-soon-as possible, but Johnson said the NRDâ€™s MoPac East and Oak Creek trails are closed to bicycles effective immediately and the portion of the Homestead Trail owned and maintained by the NRD, from Saltillo Road to Cortland is also closed to bicycles, totaling about 50 miles of trails.
City cyclists who battle to get themselves noticed on the roads can now buy the ultimate deterrent against inattentive truck drivers; a bicycle equipped with a horn that is louder than Concorde.
At close quarters the Hornster bicycle emits 178 decibels; a level of sound so powerful that if used in anger it could deafen any motorist who veered too close.
