If it could save a life, why not tell more people about it?

A few months ago I contacted a company that produced a product that could literally save a bike commuter’s life. This device has helped millions of people world wide. But this company made it better. Their product is nothing else that I’ve seen before and that’s what drew me to them.

I spoke to the owner for about 1/2 an hour on my cell phone, he asked me what the site was all about and why we wanted to review their product. I simply put it, if I am still alive to write a review, then this item served its intended purpose. If not…well, it failed.

He went on and on about how great their product is compared to the hundreds of other companies that make a similar device. However, their item was a bit extraordinary, and that’s why I wanted to test it.

He then tells me that they do very little advertising and reviews because he didn’t feel that reviews would give their product a fair evaluation. Their item is about 5 times more expensive than the average item that fits closest to their specs, but I’ve seen their stuff and if you’ve seen it too, you’d drop the money to get it.

In my opinion, their item could literally save bike commuter’s lives on the road. But, what disappointed me was this…towards the end of the conversation I had felt that we had come to an agreement and explained our review process and such. But as we said our good byes, I realized that this guy was just pulling my leg. Sure enough, about a month later, he still hasn’t returned my emails or phone calls.

It really is a shame since his product is pretty cool. Sure you’re wondering what is this great item that could save lives and why am I not telling you about it. Well here it is.

It’s a light system.

As to why this guy didn’t want us to review his product and get free exposure on our site and have over 1000 unique visitors a day see his item…dunno to be honest with you. I figure he must have felt that his company and its products were either too good for us or he was afraid we’d find a flaw in it. What ever it is, its a shame.

So to make sure our readers are safe, here are some companies that we’ve dealt and have some awesome products for bike commuters.
