    Silly light problems

    I use a cheapy light on my bike. the problem is that due to the vibration on the road, the connection gets compressed and the light turns itself off after a while. Anythought?

    Related question: where can I bight a white blinkie online?

    PapeteeBooh,
    Seems to me I have seen white ones, but I can't find any now. Nashbar has a yellow version of their 5-LED Proton that is intended for front use.
    Regards,

    What about putting a small piece of foam under the contact?
    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough...

    If there is a springy steel plate pressing againt the tip of the bulb, which is becoming loose, take the bulb out and re-set the spring. Bend it to make the contact better.
