This Laser Lightstrip Will Help Night-Time Cyclists Stay Safer And Live Longer...

This blog as you know is an advertising free zone, but in the interests of lengthening the life expectancy of its cycling readers, call me self serving, and because this is such a good idea,
I wanted to share it with you.
The Xfire safety light creates a laser generated bike lane for safer night-time cycling and for those of you who've been freaked out cycling at night, this might make you feel a lot more secure.
Xfire says the intense laser lane markers are visible from over a mile away, well you're not going to get hit from a mile away but to be seen is to be safer.
The AAA battery powered light that evidently lasts for twenty hours, simply clamps to your bike frame..
You can check out more details and the reasonable price here.
Please stay alive...

  1. That sounds like a reasonable item, and if it makes biking safer, I'm all for it. My eye doctor was killed while biking. It was early morning and a driver didn't see him until it was too late.

    1. What a horrible loss of training and value to society.

  2. Some technology is worth its weight in gold.

  3. I've had that exact torch for a few months (seemed a good price on ebay). Works very well, and almost all car drivers seem to give a wider berth.

    There's one serious issue though - the light will switch off with a fairly light bump IF the batteries are low. It's quite disconcerting, and you find yourself checking your lights every hundred yards!
    The 'bright laser lines' fade with the batteries too. You can't believe the difference when you put new batteries in.
