Light Riderz are light-up decorations that will attach to the spokes on the wheel of almost any bicycle. They each contain 32 colored LED lights that will move and create patterns that change every four seconds as your wheels spin. Regardless of your age or fitness level, you'll ensure that you'll be able to see and others will be able to see you by attaching a set of these to each wheel of your bike.
The cost of Light Riderz is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Light Riderz at the discounted price of only $5.99 for a total price of $31.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at lightriderz.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Light Riderz and has taken down the website. Light Riderz may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
To begin using your Light Riderz, attach one to one of the spokes on either your front or back wheel, as per the instructions. After you've done this, press the button on the bottom of the decoration to light it up for the first time.
Repeat this process with your remaining three Light Riderz ( or one, if you've only obtained a set of two ). Keep in mind that they'll look better if you space them apart, as opposed to installing two next to each other. If you have four in total, it's also best to add two to the front wheel and two to the back one.
Once you've installed all your lights, begin biking and watch them light up. They'll eventually turn off once you've stopped, but will turn right back on again as soon as you turn your wheels.
A light that just sends out a beam in one solid color could look boring, but fortunately, the LED lights within each of these bike decorations are multicolored. That means your bike tires will flash green, purple, pink and blue as you ride along.
Besides emitting multicolored light, each decoration also contains a total of 32 LED lights that will pulsate and create patterns that shift every few seconds. Therefore, the look of your bike will be constantly changing as you pedal, which will keep things interesting for you and observers. LED lights also tend to last longer than lights of other styles, so your decorations may last you for years without burning out.
Light Riderz are designed for use in all weather conditions, including heavy rain, so you won't need to worry about yours getting damaged by less-than-stellar weather.
Although they shine more brightly at night, these decorations will also put on a light show of a less noticeable variety while you're biking during the day.
You can get these decorations in sets of two or four, and a set of four may be your best option, as that'll give you two for each tire.
Light Riderz will fit on almost all bikes of all styles, including mountain bikes, road bikes, BMX bicycles and beach cruisers. The only criterion is that the wheels must be between 20 and 30 inches in diameter, and most bikes for adults or children will fit that specification.
Riding a bike at night without any light can be dangerous, as motorists may not see you and you may not see obstacles on the road or off. Adding Light Riderz to your bike will mitigate this problem by providing you with enough illumination to see and be seen, regardless of whether you're riding on hills or smooth terrain.
These decorations are colorful and fun enough for kids without looking so childish that adults don't want to use them. They also don't appear overly feminine or masculine.
You'll be able to add these decorations to your bike with no tools besides your own two hands, and you may even be able to add them with one hand. You likely won't need any tools to remove them, either, if you decide you don't want them on your bicycle during the day.
When you're installing these, you'll be able to choose whether you want them located closer to the tire of each wheel or closer to the middle of the wheel. Each position will give your patterns a slightly different look, so if you get tired of having a certain light in one place, you can always move it up or down.
Light Riderz do a great job of illuminating the bicycle, the road and any obstacles on it. However, they may not provide you enough illumination around your upper body. If you want to check your wristwatch or adjust your mp3 player while riding, you may have trouble seeing well enough to do that.
If there are a lot of pedestrians and / or drivers around the area where you bike, the former group might complain that the changing patterns are hurting their eyes. The latter group may complain that these patterns are distracting them from driving safely on the road.
Many people choose to attach a single-beam light to the front of their bike or their own head while biking at night. However, these don't look nearly as interesting as Light Riderz. Plus, to be able to see the area behind and beside you clearly enough, you may have to add a second one to the back of your bike.
Some cyclists choose to wear reflective stripes while biking in the dark, which enables other people around to see them, but these don't actually give the cyclists any light for themselves.
