On my previous crafty night ride
I had some technical difficulties
and was unable to assess
the front light
on the Pash.
all was bright.
Luckily it's still Summer
and it was dusk at 9 pm
when I headed home,
but the lights still needed to be on.
-The front light is bright
-I love how the light flickers
-The light is very visible even with the basket over it
-Since it was dusk, I did not get a great read on how well my path was lit up,
but it seemed to work good for visibility (mine and other folks)
-I liked how I could see my light reflect in the stop signs
-The only thing I don't like is that the light only works when the front tire is moving.
Not a big deal really, but depends who you are. If I was in an area with more traffic, I would want to be sure to be seen whether I was moving or not. So I might attach another light in those instances
-The back light is bright
On my crafty summer night rides
the distance I travel is minimal
and I wind through my neighborhood
on less-traveled side streets
pretending I'm not in the city
but in a small little hamlet
with the sea nearby,
my Swedish home in the distance
and my boys
waiting up by the fire.
