Do you think it has enough cool-factor to make it worthwhile, like the Bike Bright Z, or is it just a pointless blinking doodad? I look forward to your verdict!


It seems like a very LARGE blinking doodad. Is there any advantage to have the LEDs spread out in a square pattern like that? I'm doubtful that this makes it too much more effective than a much smaller source of LED dazzlement.

I use a FlashBak everyday on my commute to and from work. I've had it on both my backpack and on panniers too. I've done some distance testing with some friends a while back and the Flashbak is more visible at long distances than my PlanetBike SuperFlash....I think because it is larger in size. The amber light is also easier to see than red, in fog and moist conditions. I really dig the lighted switch...I always know when my back lights are on. I don't have to ride along and look in passing windows for a blinking light on my back. I dig my FlashBak, and I'm curious to see what you think of it too.

On first impressions when seeing the GIF image i thought it was a turning indicator. This will fit well on my book bag.


I hate wires, I think I might hate clips more, so I don't see the point of this product, unless you had a license plate to adorn. I'll stick with my PB superflash, the best blinky I have ever had, and I like me some blinkies!
