Where can i find those stretchy lights you can wrap around your tubes?

Does anyone know what the rubber lights are called? They might be LED and i know they come in different colors but i can't find them anywhere online. Is there anywhere i can maybe find these in sets so can can put them on all my bikes?

Dude, I got to agree on your comment. The front is probably the more critical light. Planet Bike Superflash in the rear and their 1W Blaze up front is the way to go. I find that people notice my light bouncing off street signs and stuff way before I get to the intersection and turn around to see if its the police coming! My point is that they are super bright and make you hella conspicuous, they're great.

Just chiming in with my opinion, but having a powerful front light is far more important than rear. Getting hit from behind is pretty rare, especially in urban areas, although very deadly. Aspire to 1 strong headlight, a planet bike Superflash in the rear and Frogs for effect/backup.

BTW, these use watch type CR2032 batteries. These are raging expensive ($5) at Wal-drug, but I just bought 25 for $11 (shipping incl.) through a place on

Finally, I think these are inexpensive, versatile lights that put you in compliance with the laws and it's cool to see hipsters getting lit.
I have a Knog with 4 led's in white for the front. It's great. I picked it up at Johnny Sprockets. It works great, and is the most structurally sound light I've used yet. Perhaps best of all, it goes on and comes off the bike in literally 2 seconds. When I lock up the bike, I unsnag it and put it in my pocket so as not to tempt. Plus it can bounce between multiple bikes with ease.
