Introducing Bookman Lights

According to a press-release from Gear Collective:

Bookman is a Stockholm based company that makes accessories for bikes and people on bikes. Their focus is the urban bicyclist, for whom style is as important as function. Inspired by the bustling bike life of the European metropolis, the design is simple but expressive, minimalistic but playful. The Bookman Light is the brand’s first release.

    One bump and that thing is down for the count.

    I must say not. I’ve been trying out a set for about 4 months now. I have yet to lose one. And I have been poured on with them both blinking. I must say that they have outlasted any Knog product I have used while being brighter and having more flash options to comparable lights.
    All that said, I have also found additional functionality in the mounting system. By looping the light through the elastic band several times, I made a very secure attachment to my trunk bag.
    I don’t foresee using any other minimal “to be seen” light for quite some time.

    I too have been using these for a bit and have not had any issues with them bouncing off.

    My Blackburn Fleas cost alot more,but they mount almost as easy,will not fall off,and are WAY brighter.

    I think Bike Snob would call these hipster cysts with a Lego fetish.
