    Dinotte Taillight pics

    Can someone post a pic of their dinotte taillight setup showing how/where the battery mounts to the bike? I haven't seen a pic of this anywhere, even on dinotte's website.....

    Thanks


    edit: I don't have a rack, so I wouldn't be doing a rack mount.

    I don't have mine yet, but the pics on DiNotte(pronounced De Not TAY, I've found out) show the same nylon battery pack as the 200L, at least on the AA versions. It would be simple to tuck it under the saddle and run the velcro strap to the rails. That's what I'm planning to do.

    I actually zip tied a dinotte helmet mount to the rack and mounted the light on there. because my seat bag is in the way of where they show the light mounted.
    The batteries are just in a little pouch they give you strapped to my rack.

    The four AA batteries go into a little bag, the bag has a velcro strap so you could strap it to your seat post or a frame tube.

    On my Cross-Check I have the bag resting atop the rack braze-ons. I then wrap it with Velcro strap.

    On bikes which don't have the braze-ons, I'll tuck it up against the rails under the saddle.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
