Store-Assembled Bikes Fail Safety Inspection

As parents consider purchasing bicycles for their children this holiday season, bike mechanics are warning consumers to make sure the bikes have been properly assembled at the store, particularly those bought at department stores and "big box" retailers like Walmart and Target.

Lights at Night

Visibility

  • By law, you must have a front white light and a red rear reflector in most states.
  • Motorists are familiar with white meaning front and red meaning rear.
  • Front lights can illuminate your path or simply make you visible at night.

Wattage

  • Inexpensive lights seldom light your path; at about 3 watts, they make you visible
  • Most full-time commuters use at least a 10 watt system with a rechargeable battery.
 

Power Source

  • From AA and AAA batteries to rechargeables, the options are endless.
  • Self-contained, recharegeable batteries have the best life and brightest lights.
  • Simple AA and AAA powered lights have lower initial cost but reguent battery replacement. 

Helmet vs. Bar Mount

 

  • Helmet mounted lights allow you to get the attention of motorist by looking at them.
  • Bar mounted lights make you look more like a vehicle but only point forward.
  • The ideal situation is one helmet light and one bar-mounted light for safety.

Rear Lights

  • A red rear blinking light is much more conspicuous than a passive reflector.
  • Make sure that your light is visible to motorists and not pointing up or down.
  • Clear obstuctions from the back of the bike that would block the light.
