This light came preinstalled on a bike.

It’s nothing fancy but it works and I like that it’s permanently installed so you can’t forget it and don’t need to worry about theft.When the bracket that holds the light on was damaged in a crash, I wrote to Retrospec to ask if they have a replacement part.

They were all swamped due to coronavirus and the person who responded was apologetic but it didn’t sound like I’d get one.

I thought, “no big deal, it’s an inexpensive light and I’m the one who broke it”, but then a week later the part showed up in my mailbox!

Kudos for good service.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this bike headlight based on price trends. Let's go over the reasons why buying this bike headlight now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. The current price is in its lowest range, best time to buy!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $9.99 $9.51

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed recently, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this bike headlight was $9.99, and the lowest price point was $9.51. There has only been a -4.80% difference in the highest and lowest price point. This means that this product has reliable supply and/or does not gouge its price. A very good sign! The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $10.03 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

2. This bike headlight has okay reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This bike headlight has moderatereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this bike headlight more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. Make sure Retrospec is a brand you can trust

Retrospec doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other bike headlight brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Retrospec Bicycles (Retrospec), has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml Retrospec Other similar brands: BV USA BIGO

I found 2 brands that have similar products like this one: BV USA and BIGO. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from BV USA. If you're looking for a bike headlight with best reviews, a product from BIGO gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from BV USA I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
