Need a taillight compatibile with this rack

http://www.axiomgear.com/images/prod...lar/171344.jpg

if you look closely, there are two holes in the back of the rack. Are there any lights that can fit those holes?

The image is really small. I can't quite see the wholes you're talking about but this site may offer an option of another way to mount lights or get a light that will work with your mount.

Have you considered the Planet Bike Superflash


with the optional $5 rack mounting bracket?

I'm curious is there such a mount for the Cateye LD1100 to rear rack mount like the PBSF?

That's the way to go. The Superflash is possibly the best taillight on the market(except for the DiNotte) and is definitely the best under $40.

That wide-spaced horizontal drilling is for European-standard taillights. Wayne at The Touring Store carries one from Busch & Muller.

Note that in Europe, blinking lights aren't allowed, so this light doesn't blink. It's got a freaking huge reflector area--easily three times what's legally required in New York State anyway.

I have that light mounted to my Tubus Cosmo rack as my steady taillight, side-marker light and required rear reflector. (I use a DiNotte as my blinkie.) The B&M light is brighter than I thought it would be. The two "super-bright" LEDs in the middle are about as bright as those used in the CatEye LD-500 and LD-1000. I get about six to eight weeks of winter commuting out of a pair of Energizer lithium AA batteries in it. I particularly like the low-battery warning feature.

That's a good looking rack.

I think I would choose my taillight by the performance of the light. Then figure out to to mount it, even if it meant breaking out the Makita 3/8" variable speed.

Plastic + Dremel tool + Drill = any mounting bracket for any surface/device you want!

I have the Planet Bike mounting kit on my Tubus Vega, so it works on Euro drilling, too.

Do they sell a bracket for mounting the ping pong ball, too?

+1 the 4D Toplight will fit that rack and is a great tailight. I have one on the rack of my touring/commuter bike. I also use one or more PB Superflashes on the my saddle bag, rack trunk or panniers.
