Blink / Steady Lights Apr 16, 2012

At this point, I get at least a dozen emails a week from people regarding Kickstarter projects. I usually sift through the ones I like and this week’s pick are the Blink / Steady Lights. I can get behind all of this. If and when they develop a USB-chargeable version, I’ll support it even more. Regardless, these look great and are made in Brooklyn, NY but are not cheap. Check out more here.

    Big price but those are so sweet and minimal.

    Looks slick and that sturdy aluminum clamp is worth some extra cash…I’ve been through at least 5 of those Planet Bike tail lights ($20 a pop) because the plastic clips keep breaking.

      Seriously though, they do look nice. But USB charging > Batteries.

    Blink Steady should:
    1. integrate a 300+ lumen head lamp into a road/track stem,
    2. integrate the tail light into a seat post,
    3. and make it all Li-ion with a long charger cable
    4. take my money

      the back light gets brighter when you brake because the generator gets closer to the wheel!  

      i think we have a winner

        Sadly not a winner for people who don’t have brakes to attach this unsightly lighting system to their bike. I ride a fixed gear so Magnic Light is not my cup of tea.

          Scratch that. They have them for fixed but I’m still not excited about the look.
