I receive this newsletter once or twice a month from Have Fun Biking. A Minnesota group. There is a review they did on this little rear light. It sounds very promising. If you are a bike rider or knows one that rides at night even a little you should check this light out.

I received this from a fellow biker. The study will be completed in summer 2017

My 1st RAGBRAI with Team Megawatts a team next to us had a very drunk couple come back as we just retired to our tents.
