Strengths:    strong flash mode, visible for a mile

Weaknesses:    On/off switch won't stay off. The least bumpy road turns light on and runs the batteries down when you don't notice during daylight. For a "waterproof" light water go in the back of the battery holder and shorted out something and the light wouldn't turn off.

Bottom Line:   
There are better bike lights out there. The switch is it's weak link. Light strength is good and duration is good.

Strengths:    This is a very small, very lightweight light. It lasts a long time on AAA batteries, clips on quickly whether the mount is right side up or reversed, and runs underwater. Flashing mode is cool, but more useful as a warning beacon than a light.

Weaknesses:    Just doesn't cut it as a bike light. Every light I have is far brighter, so this one really gets relegated to an emergency role when my other lights fails, which it does well since it is so small and light. I love Niterider, but this doesn't make it with me.

Bottom Line:   
Works well as an around the house flashlight, and great for backpacking and canoe trips since it lasts forever on a set of batteries, is totally waterproof and doesn't weigh much. If you want a small bike light that will help you see something in your way, get the Blackburn Voyager 4 or the Cateye HL500. If you want to really see where you are going, get a real heavyweight light.

Strengths:    Inexpensive, flashing mode is easily seen.

Weaknesses:    Bracket is poorly designed - the 'C' clip is designed to fit with the opening in front of the handlebars. If you have brake cables running near them (or in line brake levers) the bracket gets in the way with its sharp corners and screw adjustment.
Also, the light on/off switch is easily flipped when in a bag. Batteries burn out quick when this happens. I counted on being able to take this light off and carry it around with me...I can't do that without checking every 30min to see if some movement has turned it on. Thus, this light is good for two things - leaving on the bike, and leaving on a shelf.
Third, the light's aero profile is bulky.

Bottom Line:   
I use this for my safety commuter light. Honestly, get the Cateye for less money. Better aero profile, mounting system, and switch design, all with equal brightness and less money than this one.

Strengths:    Visibility at about 75 feet, bright enough to see on a regular night. Great as a long range light. Can use NiMH rechargable batteries as well as alkaline batteries(alkaline batteries included). Lasts a long 60-140 hours. Good for average people/commuters. Can be seen far away(as in, someone spots your light), but...

Weaknesses:    Doesn't go any farther than about 75 feet(the beam for visibilty, anyways), bad close range visibility, not good enough for demanding riders like me. I want something brighter than moonlight, because the moonlight is actually brighter than it!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
Buy this as your regular commuting light. It isn't all that great, so don't expect it to perform well in fog, rain, etc. I plan on getting something better!.....
