Having just purchased a set of the above i felt i should recommend them as the nights start to get longer.

For general commuting they appear so far to be excellent. At least as bright as any other flashing lights i have used and you never need to worry about running out of batteries.

The only down side is that they are mounted at wheel hub hight but i am sure with a bit of work this could be changed.

There are a number of uk sellers jsut do a search on google.

Nice product in concept but the original only fits the LH side of the bike so not ideal in the UK. Also the hub mounting height is not great, as you point out, as it can be hard to spot and is hidden by panniers. When a good pair of battery driven LED lights can be fitted anywhere and last for a season the Reelights do not appeal.

Ive got the SL120's and they fit on the right hand side. I would not recommend them as your only set of light but think there useful for the times your just nipping out and forget to take spare batteries or for thoes day when you were shaw you would leave work before it got dark but didnt manage
