    Yes, the rack mount can be a bit tricky with the variety of different styles out there. Some have very thin sheet metal "tangs" for mounting nothing more than a reflector, and I've seen these stress fracture and break under a heavier dynamic load, but I actually did make a nice Tubus-style adapter with the 50mm and 80mm spacing that worked really well. I just ended up not having a lot of call for it, and didn't make any more after the initial batch, although I may try to build some more in the next machine shop run. Turns out with creative use of the spacer material, most racks can use an approach like this:

    Here are a couple of ideas. The Magicshine taillight and 2 of the $16 Amazon Magicshine-clone headlights with colored lenses pointing backwards. The 2 clones are then connected to one battery using a Y harness.

    Very Fred-ish with the white pvc pipe and all. But they are bright bright and do the job. If somebody were to dye the pipe black, cut and resolder the wires at the proper length, and show a little creativity, this would be quite workable.

    The 2 big pluses for the Designshine are brightness and versatile mount.

    If you're not aware of it, the Magicshine taillight shown here

    unscrews from the base and is easily mounted on one of the vertical tabs on the back of racks.
