MO blogger covers bicycle gear and clothing

Mark Nanos, a MoBikeFed member and bike commuter in the Kansas City area, has started a new blog with detailed reviews of bicycle commuter gear and apparel. 

So far, Nanos has reviewed jackets, riding dungarees, a helmet, and lights.


The tail light is a Planet Bike Superflash Turbo, which is widely available. It has a one watt power LED plus 2 red LEDs for visibility up to 1 mile, and runs on two AAA batteries. I use simple (black) plastic ties running into vents and through the light hook to hold it in place (you can see them in the bottom photo below). This way I can put on the blinker whenever lighting would be prudent--and I find that is often, even during the daylight, as already explained. Again, the safety feature is enhanced by being at the maximum height a rider can supply--on the top of their head! Win-win.
