rear light and dropper post
i tried the backpack thing and by the end of the ride it could be pointing anywhere, i think id rather point it off the bike and know the driver will see it. the strip light things – fibre flares? from what ive read they dont like water which is a shame.
but you’ve given me an idea, a helmet bracket – my old lumi one… could be ziptied nicely to the saddle rails i think…
facepalm. but the issue is finding a light that can be ziptied – ie that has holes in it. or some useful mounting pointsPosted 5 years agoOrange CrushMember
I don’t suppose you are going to be running on the road with minimum extension though and you don’t want to be distracting a following rider on the singletrack by running a rear light when he can see your front light, in effect.
For road use (it would collect too much dirt off road) Smart do a bracket to attach the light to the seat stay. Like the one on the left here BracketPosted 5 years agorobarnoldMember
Cat eye loop lights attach to anything using a bungee style loop, I use them on the back of my lid, seatpost, on my Camelbak and on to my jacket when out running, really versatile piece of kit, especially for a tenner:Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Zip ties and inginuity to get it on the saddle rails at the right angle? It must be possible? If not most saddle bags have loops on the back for lights, and I find a 0.2l bag more usefull than camelpacks for tube and chain links which are different on all my bikes so it’s easier to have a bag on each!
As for rear lights being distracting, I actualy find them usefull to follow. There’s usualy so many of us on nigth rides that helmet lights create a strobed effect through the trees and following the red lights becomes easier.Posted 5 years agomaujaMember
Get the Exposure Flare with the optional saddle rail mountPosted 5 years ago
OC – ah i see that makes sense,
That exposure saddle bracket though sounds just what i need.
the main issue with the lights ive tried so far is a lack of places to thread a zip tie – on the light itself. All the clip on, belt loop style ones just ping off mid ride somewhere. a permanently fixed and switchable light under the saddle would be great so off to see that exposure bracket, ta MaujaPosted 5 years ago
