  1. Hey SueJ – i've found that in the city they're bright enough for every day use. Just as long as you don't need to find your way with them!

  3. In UK, the law required rear lights must be at least 35cm high from the ground.

    If any one install this reelights on a 26 inch wheels normal bike, the back lights are less than 35cm from the ground, therefore is illegal.

    Anything happened on road, other side lawyer will rise the question about the lights

    Other country may have same law.

  5. Good point, Mark. Reelight claims their lights comply with the 35 cm height requirement on everything except bikes with very small tires, but 26 inch mountain bike tires are, in reality, more like 25 inches or about 63 to 64 centimeters, so axle mounted lights are indeed below the 35 cm minimum height. I'll have to remember to measure this tonight when I get home.

    700c/29" tires should be fine, though.
