Now that I’m going to work by bike every day (and go adventure weekends)… I have noticed, during the afternoon and evening, a large number of riders without helmets and no lights, but with the headphones on your ears. Many of my critics will say “you are right”. However it is an act of irresponsibility not only yourself but others.
You must, first, determine what you need. Do you want to be seen or want to see? It is the main factor to consider when you want to buy. If touring the city and the streets are well-lit… then you must be seen. In this case, you can get a flashing LED light for the front and a red light – also flashing – back. The lights that are flashing are more attracted attention and that is what you want in an urban atmosphere full of distractions. The price varies between 5 and 150 soles… Although I think that average lights are sufficient.
If you want to not only be seen but also see the way… you will have to invest more. You can save a lot of money if you sacrifice something of beauty in pursuit of utility (using tie wraps to make a miner at the helm or power Cap lamp, for example). Be either way, do not forget to recharge your batteries every time, don’t wait to your lights to reduce its intensity or will abandon you when you most need them.
We have available, in addition, many solutions to be able to be seen in the dark (very cheap solutions, incidentally). I can already foresee that many of you will say “but I have reflectors on my bike.” Reflective tapes are only useful when the light is directed directly to them… and is so reflected light towards the same point from which comes. They are not useful when you’re on the street and cars come from different angles.
Consider each spring that we see out there driving without care, reckless and reckless, drunk drivers, microbuseros and other characters that are completely aggressive with cyclists. You should not risk driving without care, without minimum protection, without lights and, to top it off, disconnected from the reality. We share the road. You’re not only a risk to yourself but to the rest.
You can get your lights for bicycle in your favorite bike shop and galleries of emancipation. Not forget is not over ask for advice on what brand, model or type of light pick. Mark lights tend to cost a bit more but the investment is worthwhile.
Considerations for choosing lights for your bike.
Defines if you only want to be seen or also like to see the way in case there are no additional lighting (as poles of light, for example). This will determine how much you have to invest.
Try to use lights that require AA or AAA batteries, you can use an alkaline or rechargeable ones. This will be of great advantage because you can find spare parts anywhere. Here are rechargeable bicycle lights: http://www.ebicyclelights.com/best/rechargeable-bicycle-lights/.
Remember that the indications Watt and lumens referred to different things. Watt is a measure of consumption while Lumen is a measure of the brightness or the light intensity. There is a close ratio between the two but must know how to choose. A Planet Bike 2 watt lamp so hard as 2 lights 1 Watt XLC, it shines a little more and spent batteries much faster, but you don’t need to worry much bulk or appliance. It is necessary to decide.
The colors lucesitas cheap discards are lost between the lamps of automobiles and not draw much attention.
