Default Anyone have any experience with light up valve stems?

just saw these when i came across this video, and was wondering if anyone had used them. im thinking in terms of visibility, they are great - but probably illegal in CA (where i live). also, not sure how long they really last or if most of them are cheap.

sorry, not sure how to embed with the youtube tags.

just get reflective rim tape which may garner you less trouble than the light up stems from The Range - Tyreflys

They are probably cheap and I'd bet don't hold up that well to the high rpm's motorcycle tyres spin. I'd go the tape route if I were you..

He already has the tape, but he wants to turn the rice factor up another notch.

Once rim tape is installed, the rice factor can't possibly go up another notch.

Not only are they gayer than aids, they bend your valve stem over at high speeds.

'Tireflys' have established a rep for leakage and failure when used on motorcycles.
