• Blackburn Light Sweepstakes: Let the Holidays Begin

    by  • November 23, 2011 • advert, tech, too random • 5 Comments

    I’m a proponent of free stuff during the holidays.  Flood this contest so that the lights do not leave NorCal.  It’s the holiday season so every free piece of equipment is fair game..go get ’em!

    As we head into the darkest season of the year, Blackburn is encouraging cyclists to take extra care to stay visible on the road.  One of the best ways to stay as safe as possible is to equip your bike with front and rear lights (and in most states in the US, this is a requirement by law).  If you’re a cyclist who frequently rides at night, or someone who sometimes finds themselves out on their bike after dark, then you owe it to yourself to make sure you have a proper set of lights to stay seen and stay safe.

    To keep cyclists safe on those night rides Blackburn is giving away Click Light Combos to ten winners a day between November 22 and December 1, 2011.  For your chance to win, visit the Blackburn Facebook page, complete the sweepstakes entry form and you’re on your way to staying seen and staying safe this holiday.

      I actually like the Flea, it’s a great size, and the usb one is perfect for work since i can charge it on my lap top. That said but i do find mass produced lights under $100 that are not of the micro variety don’t work great for me. I have had good luck with a few set ups like light & motion, etc but they were pretty expensive, as in $200… its easier to quit your job and ride during the day.

      also.. i just buy a ton of $20 “disposable” lights for commuting, like knog, flea, and planet bike (for the rear)

      I have to agree about the Flea. It’s a simple headlight for a bike and very bright when fully charged. You do have to keep it charged but the USB makes it easy. I’ve been really happy with my light — pretty affordable and works fine.

      I have had the Flea, that’s the one that broke on me. Won’t charge on USB anymore after a while. Will check into a Knog.
