  1. After nearly getting hit 3 times in the past week, I've just invested in some visibility tweaks for my bike, altho I believe mine are far cheaper than those shown in the video but still quite effective.

    I got the Nite Ize SpokeLit – Green ($16 for a pair), the Nite Ize Sport Vest ($24), and a string of White LED Xmas lights that run off of 3 AA batteries that I will probably wrap around my front fork ($6).

    I'm considering another string of red LED Xmas lights for the rear triangle ($10), but the sets I've found don't claim to be weather resistant like the white ones do.

  5. Where can I get some ELVS/reflective "short-shorts" for MY commute?!? 😉

    Nick, the LED Christmas lights aren't particularly weatherproof, but you can do a lot to make them more durable with a dab of silicone sealant and a couple strips of electrical tape. I got some multicolored ones from Deal Extreme (or somesuch) last year, and they rock the house.

    +1 for Monkeylectric, too!

  7. I need new batteries for my SpokeLits already… but I really do like that side angle visibility.

    I found a string of 10 LED lights with little candy canes on 'em that change colors that got me an "awesome!" comment going through campus. I just ordered some fiber optic battery powered "centerpieces" that I figure will pass for Christmas Trees if I dangle gold stars on them. I want to find a dove…

    the word verification is "huffee" … hmmm…
