    by fromBright, but not well engineered clamp It was bright, and I really liked the blinking red on the sides. However, it would not stay not he bike. It kept sliding off of the clamp. That is not good on a mountain bike. I ended up exchanging it.

    by fromSo far so good! I just bought this light on clearance. I read the reviews that some people said the light fell off of their bike. It possibly was not locked properly in place and/or the screw was not tightened to the handlebar. I am confidant that this light will never fall off my handlebar. As far as the brightness at night, I have not ridden at night yet to rate that portion of this light. I will get back to everyone when I get a night ride in.

    by fromLights the way Love this light. It is worth the price. Well made, easy to attach to bike. It does a nice job of lighting so I am able to see a decent distance at night.

    by fromPoor quality clamp I would have enjoyed reviewing this product, but it fell off my bike within 1/2 mile of my second commute with it and fell down a storm drain. As others have noted, the physical clamp to the handlebars is OK, but the clamp for the light allows the light to fall off with a gentle touch or slight breeze. The light wasn't that impressive either on the one night commute I had the opportunity to use it for prior to involuntary storm drain disposal.

    by fromJunk! As other reviewers have noted the mount is horrible. IMHO, the light is just as bad. Mount wouldn't hold the light securely so of course it fell off within 100 yards of the driveway. Then the front (lens) portion of the light broke off. There was apparently only a tiny piece of flimsy plastic holding the two parts together. I have the EOS style bike light as well as a headlamp from Princeton Tec and both are very nice so I'd say this product is an anomaly from a normally reputable company.

    by fromHorrible mount. Great light. Really bright light for the price. However, the attachment mount is horrible: light constantly falls off with bumps on the road. After two three falls, the mounting clip broke off and now the light is useless as a bike light.

    by fromExcellent bike light for the price! Well, within the first 10 minutes, the light fell off the mount 2x. So, my solution, zip tie the mother to the mount. It fell off after I hit a crack in the sidewalk as well as jumping off the curb while crossing traffic. The light is very bright and works well. Doesn't seem to eat the battery.

    by fromNice light for bikeway illumination Compared to my previous lights intended to illuminate bikeways, this one has more light, a generally good thing. Unfortunately the optical engineer designed an axially symmetric beam. A better design is an intense spot near the top center of the beam (to project farther down the bikeway) with less intense close and lateral patterns to evenly illuminate the path of travel and adjacent areas. But with more light I will still choose this as my primary bike light (with others as secondary or backup; a backup is necessary in case of battery or other failure when miles from home). Surprisingly, the peak intensity of this light does not seem higher than my other lights even with a higher light output (lumens). Instead of a brighter beam, the beam is larger, using that extra light to increase intensity away from the peak. I like the control functions: high, low, strobe (a few dim flashes followed by one extra-bright flash). Also, the side strobe can accompany any of the white light functions or be turned off. I'm disappointed that the side strobe is red; that is the proper color for a rear light but not one in front. Instead the optical designer should have selected white, amber or selective yellow, the choices available for signaling and marking lamps on vehicles. The side strobe is also fairly dim, but choosing the proper color would increase visibility. While this light is pretty compact, with just a little more width it could be redesigned to use AA batteries instead of the AAA size. That would allow over twice the battery life, saving time, money and decreasing the chance of battery failure when underway. Overall I like this PUSH light, as it seems very well made and provides ample light for typical bike paths and roads, but I'm disappointed that with just a little more effort it could be a significantly better design.
