Fantastic ! The parcel arrived in very poor condition. Thousand had nothing to do with it, only the delivery man. Thousand decided to send me another sticker free of charge. Exceptional !!

Great idea, but not good enough for the price

Initially, I was very happy with my purchase. The lights are bright and they are easy to take on and off. I did need to charge them at least twice a week. Didn't love that but I could deal with it. Now, after 6 months of use, the strap snapped and I can use the backlight anymore. For a product this expensive, I expect higher quality.

Great lights!

I was pretty worried about the quality of the lights, given the poor reviews. However, after seeing BikeGeeks positive review on Youtube, I decided to try them out. And I’m glad I did! I’m the type of rider that is NOT a spandex wearer, daily commuter, or trail rider- I ride in an urban environment and use it to get around the city when I need to. These lights fit my bike style, and after a little practice, the lights are easy to turn on and off and take off when I need to. Highly recommended if your riding is similar to mine!

Awesome lights and retro brass bell!

Love these items. The bell has a nice sounding ring to it, alerting my presence. The lights are bright enough for day riding but the headlight needs to be a bit brighter to see ahead. I like that I can easily take them off my bike to recharge or take them n with me when I lock the bike.

Looks great, performs poorly

I have a helmet from Thousand which I LOVE so I figured the lights would be designed with equal care and intelligence. Unfortunately these have a ton of problems and I would highly advise against buying these. Pros: - looks fantastic (easily the best-looking, sleekest lights out there) - very easy / quick to mount - I liked that you could take the light off to recharge without having to unmount the strap Cons: - as a bunch of others have mentioned, the dial design is really flawed and extremely frustrating to operate (why not just have a button or switch?). even months after owning it, it still takes a couple of angry attempts to get it to the setting I want. Even just trying to switch it on/off is a pain and I will often just accidentally twist it off the mount. And don’t even think about trying to operate this while you’re riding your bike… - I can’t tell if this is intentional or an individual product flaw, but my front light flash settings (both of them) have this really weird irregular rhythm where the front light only projects light “forward” every few beats. This makes for a pretty jarring night time riding experience and messes with my night vision. - the rubber mounting strap on one of my lights broke after a couple months of use. Since it’s designed as integral to the body there’s no way to replace or fix just the broken band, so the whole light is trash now. - Rear light flash modes mysteriously stopped working (just brighter and dimmer constant light modes) Such a pity because these are such good-looking lights ! But all the design flaws make these unbearable to use.

Nice and efficient front lamp

This is a nice and efficient front lamp I use in my classic bicycles. Very good light at night.

Good idea, execution still not there...

I really liked and enjoyed the lights during the first few months. However, similar to Amanda, the plastics little "flaps" to keep in place and lock the actual light to the base have been disappearing with the time and use. Now one of my lights is permanently on and can't get it to turn off or change into any of the flashing modes. Not quite I expected for that price.

Not ready for primetime

The selector ring does not move smoothly, separate from the rest of the front of the unit. After playing with it a few times, and not being rough - I seem to have ground off most of the plastic spurs in the base unit which "lock" the front of the unity to the back. Now it is very hart to move the selections from "on" to any other setting because the front of the unit just wants to separate from the base. Similar to what "Amanda" also reported in her feedback. Also, the whole light unit needs to be replaced when the battery reaches the end of its life. This is not what I would expect from a company like thousand, which is supposed to be forward thinking, nor what I would expect from a $70 light.

Lights are bright and sturdy; Mount is poorly constructed

I opened the box and attempted to remove the light to charge. The magnet is pretty strong and turning it was actually difficult, to the point the tabs that align the light into the socket crushed. Probably my fault, but I don't think I did anything crazy here. I wish they were thicker or metal to avoid the chance of them being crushed.
