I decided to get a rain cape awhile back and today was the first day that I could try it out. But, I couldn't figure out a way to have the cape and not cover my light. The light on my rain bike is a NiteRider MiNewt X2.
I ride a small bike, so the head tube is small and with the junction of the top and bottom tubes, I can't place the light there.
For those that wear a cape, how do you not cover up the handlebar light? Is there a secondary position you place the light, a technique to drape the cape so it doesn't cover the light when on the bars?
Yeah, I don't see a problem is I am riding any of my dynamo lighted bikes. But, those aren't my rain bike. I thought about the device that gets put into the front rack mounts, but I'm not so sure about the battery pack and if I want the NiteRider that low.
My cyclo-camping tour bike, I had a battery pack I put in a front pannier ,
with a long enough wire..
to power a headlight, that I fitted to the Low Rider Hoop.
with the better performance of LED lights , I got one of Paul's 'gino' mounts
that I screwed to the hoop, in place of the headlight,
then the QR handle bar mount light bracket went on it,
and I gained a bright flashlight for off the bike..
the battery pack light, a nightrider sport ; that uses 5-D cells
went on the Studded tire rig, since that cold, the cape is not needed.
