Rear Lights for Your Bike

Everyone knows that the headlight is a very vital part of any vehicle that travels after dark. Not only does the scooter or bicycle headlight point your way forward, it alerts oncoming traffic to your presence. What some people don't realize is that your tail light is just as important when the sun goes down. A rear reflector helps, and many bike pedals come with reflectors as part of the foot platform, but a red tail lamp is even better.

Here at Monster Scooter Parts, we want you to stay safe. To keep you riding in inclement weather or when the sky grows dark, we can recommend a number of top-quality lights. It's hard to choose sometimes, but here a few of our personal favorites.

Danger Zone Bicycle Taillight
If nocturnal safety is a major concern, or your daily bike commute takes you down poorly lit roadways, you might consider mounting a Portland Design Works Danger Zone bicycle taillight to your bike's seat tube. The Danger Zone is aptly named; the tail light was designed to provide a brilliant and startling display of flashing red illumination in the dark of night, in inclement weather, or anytime you want people to know that you are there.

Redlite Mini USB Bicycle Taillight

The Redlite Mini USB bicycle taillight from Topeak is a compact and lightweight tail lamp with three super-bright ruby red LEDs to ensure that you get noticed on the road when riding after dark. There are three modes to the Redlite Mini that you can use; a constant unwavering red light, a 3-light concurrent strobe, and a swirling blinker that fires all three LEDs in rapid order. You won't fail to be seen with any of these three modes in operation. Powered by a Lithium battery, the Redlite Mini is quickly recharged by way of a standard micro-USB cable.

Spaceship 3 & Red Planet Light Combo
If you need to replace both lights, you can't do better than the Spaceship 3 & Red Planet Light combination pack from Portland Design Works. This set represents two of PDW's most popular bike lights, and they will make a truly superlative upgrade to any bicycle.

Fly6 Rear Camera/Taillight Combination for Bicycles
The Fly6 Rear Camera/Taillight Combo for bicycles is made by Cycliq, and is one of the most innovative bike accessories that we have seen in some time. The Fly6 bike camera offers 1280 x 720 HD audio/video recording paired with a 30 lumen taillight. Easy to mount on your bike's seat post, the Fly6 camera/tail light also offers looping video recording for "set and forget" use. The incident capture protection makes Cycliq's camera a must-have item, recording everything that approaches from the rear or passes the rider; cars, loose animals, pedestrians, and everything else.

To be a tail light or not to be, that is the question.

We can attest with some authority that William Shakespeare never rode a bike or scooter, such handy & useful machines had to wait for another three centuries to be invented. So what (pray tell) does a paraphrasing of Hamlet's soliloquy have to do with scooter parts in this digital age? The English language has never sat around for very long without changes creeping in from time to time. If the Shakespearean lingo that you read in high school sounds a little quaint these days, that's the result of hundreds or thousands of minor changes in the last few hundred years. Spelling and pronunciations can both evolve over time until the results are scarcely recognizable to people living in another time.

A perfect example that is currently in process is the rapid evolution of words that were not even coined until recently. The Digital Age brought us electronic mail, which became e-mail, and is now simply written out... or more often typed out as email; a single word without a hyphen. The same can be said for website, webpage, ecommerce, and on and on. Useful phrases are created, go through a hyphenated phase, and are soon replaced by a single compound word. Ask your favorite search engine for "tail light" and it will give you just as many results for "taillight" (one word). Suggested synonyms will include taillamp, tail lamp, rear light, back light; you get the picture. Like the eternal struggle between the partisans of lug wrench versus those who swear by tire iron, different people can properly use different words to mean the same essential bike part.

Here at Monster Scooter Parts we offer a wide variety of rear-mounted illumination devices that are suitable for most bikes and scooters. We all recognize the need for these safety devices, and in many places it is a matter of local law. Whether you need a headlight & taillight combination, a light-catching reflector, or a flashing rear tail lamp that secures to your seat tube, we have the best scooter or bicycle parts and accessories.

At Monster Scooter Parts we like to say that we have the parts and the smarts to keep you rolling.
