You know what’s poorly designed? Every last bike light paid for and given away by the SFMTA stamped with the SFMTA brand so that you’ll like that SFMTA more better.
You know what’s well designed? These semi-counterfeit light sets from Amazon for $8 each free delivery:
Oh, they’re sold out now? Sorry. But I just bought four sets like ten days ago. See?

What I was thinking was that these lights would just pop right in to the “Bike Planet” mounts I already have on the bikes I need to take care of. (Bike Planet isn’t really a name-brand IRL, but it certainly is as far as bike lights are concerned.) And of course, they snap right in on the Bike Planet mounts
The headlight from “BV USA,” in particular, is particularly cheesy / plasticky. But all the lights I just bought work A-OK, as expected.
I totally don’t know what happened to all the Blaze 2-watt headlights I bought for $20-something when Amazon had a super-duper sale, and for that matter, the mostly white Superflash Turbo taillights I also paid $20-something for.
Anyway, the BV lights I just bought work great and they have rubber gaskets to keep out the rain just the way the Planet Bike lights have.
But be my guest if you want to pay mo money.
