With the use of VERSA-MOUNTS and multiple Red flashing lights on the back stays and Amber flashing lights on the front forks, approaching motorists can easily see bicycle riders from a greater distance. This gives motorists more time to take safe appropriate action while passing the bicyclist. Please keep in mind that when motorists are passing a bicyclist from the rear during low light and dark hours of the day without rear flashing lights, it is often difficult for motorists to locate the bicyclist. Use frontal mounted Amber lights to help motorists judge your positon after passing or when you are approaching intersections. When the bicyclist is using multiple flashing lights on the front and back of their bicycle, the motorist will find it easier to judge the speed and distance of the bicyclist which helps them to pass the bicyclist safely. "Don't forget to install a White Multiple stage Front Headlight!"
“I am an avid road bicyclist. I have been frustrated with light mounts until I discovered VERSA-MOUNT safety light mounting brackets. My bike has a Carbon fiber frame, and I will not mount any metal band or bracket on my frame. VERSA-MOUNTs are easy to install, and the plastic brackets have no impact on my frame or forks. And with additional lights, I’m able to commute and train throughout the year.”
Sharing the road is most important. Bicycle riders should be aware of the rules in their municipalities applying to bicycle riding and to engage in safe riding practices. Bicycle riders should make themselves and their bikes as obvious as possible to drivers. The use of VERSA-MOUNTin conjunction with flashing lights will enhance the relationship between bicycle riders and drivers. A bicyclist is required to ride with the flow of traffic and never against it. "Please obey all biking rules."
“At last, we found a way to mount additional lights on our bikes with the use of VERSA-MOUNT brackets. We live in the country and ride all year round. When taking longer rides, we are careful to ride home before the sun sets or in the winter when the sun sets earlier. There are no bike lanes or shoulders on our roads, so we must ride on the road bed. With multiple lights flashing, we no longer fear being struck by cars either head-on or from behind.”
Safety for Rear-Mounted Lights
Motorists approaching bicycle riders from the rear and front are generally surprised and pleased to see easily identifiable bicycle riders because of their use of multiple flashing lights.
It is important to install VERSA-MOUNTS with flashing Red lights on the back stays and Amber flashing lights on the front forks of children's bicycles. This helps to protect our children when they are riding to school or other distinations early in the morning or during hours of dimishing light in the evening. Multiple flashing lights are especially critical on cloudy, rainy and foggy days.
VERSA-MOUNT can be used to mount multiple flashing lights on child carriers pulled behind bicycles and on various types of baby strollers.
“I found the VERSA-MOUNT light mounting brackets very easy to install. With six flashing lights, I feel confident that cars can see me better from the front and most importantly, from the back when riding in both the morning and the evening.”
