    Has anyone used the Golden Eagle rear signal light setup? Does it work well enough to use?

    Reason: It is a bit more dangerous doing hand signals while using a bike engine.

    Are signal lights a waste of $$

    I am looking for some lighting for my new power bike. I recall reading in here somewhere how it would be cool to have signals - like a motorcycles.

    I found this we site:

    Attached are the two photo's from the site.

    Any thoughts?

    Normally I would have gone out to my local Walmart to purchase whatever lighting system they had for bicycles. But after Augiedog's work on his custom light setup, it made me wonder if these retail lights are a waste of $$.

    What was that the motive behind creating custom lights? Challenge or the need to get good lighting because retail not have any...

    Agreed. No one is filling the market void for this. I don't get it. The better quality ones are too pricey and/or are partial in desired functions.

    If the "Happy Price Time" manufacturers would get a clue and kick the quality up a notch it would be a win-win.

    These are junk, junk, junk. I bought 2, and put them on 2 different bikes. One lasted for 2 rides, the other for 3 rides. They didnt cost much so I salved a few parts and threw them in the trash.
