Now that the year is winding down for students all over it is time to start thinking about those special gifts you want to get the graduates as they embark on a new chapter of their lives. It is also very close to Father's Day and time to get down to business and get him a great gift. If you know a grad or dad that is into riding a bike day and night well this gift will give you piece of mind that they are super safe and can be seen clearly at night by drivers. It is the Monkey Light 8-Bit Bike Wheel Light and it is a great gift idea for that special person you may be buying for that loves to ride.

While there are some excellent simple LED bike lights (see below), there are times when we want to pull out all the stops. These times call for us to step up the hardware. These times call for a Monkey Light 8-Bit Bike Wheel Light! These lights are so much more than your typical LED lights. The battery pack straps to your bike wheel's hub (so it doesn't mess up the balance) and the light unit quickly installs near the tire. With a few button presses, you're selecting one of 20 different light patterns which will blast out of both sides of your tire (5 super-bright LEDs per side). And then you get to select the colors you want (each theme has many color options). Finally, use science (persistence of vision) and your own muscles (pedaling power) to turn 10 spots of light into awesome streaking patterns. Skulls, invaders from space, rocket ships, fiery comets, and 16 more! Get one Monkey Light 8-Bit Bike Wheel Light for each tire, and you will have the coolest bicycle ever. Do not wait order these for someone special now.

The Monkey Light 8-Bit Bike Wheel Light is available at ThinkGeek for $49.99.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
