    Rear lighting mounts

    OK, just a quickie...

    I am looking at ways to mount rear lights on my bike. So far I just have the rear stays or the seatpost. My rear stays run somewhere between 30 and 45 deg from horizontal due to suspension, and my seat post often gets slightly obscured.

    Is there anyway of extending either, like you canwith the handle bar extenders, to add additional lighting space or points. Was thinking about something that extends out from the seatpost to the side, but also rearwards.

    I have seen this.... http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/product/106154.html just wondered if there was anything else
    Not as green as I might be cabbage looking!

    Hi CC !!

    I guess you could use L brackets on the rear axle ?

    What bicycle is it ?

    I've got rear lights on my mudguard, seat stays, rear carrier, seatpost and saddle - just making a some new brackets up atm, I should have 10 independent rear lights, how's that for redundancy ?



    Maybe fitting a carrier would be a handy solution ?

    Here is how I solved my mounting problem... About an hours work.



    This the second version...

    Flying an airplane is really very simple...Push the stick forward, the house gets big. Pull the stick back, the house gets small. Keep holding the stick back, the house gets big again.
