    Racks with integrated lights?

    Since wheels tend to be round, there's a big wedge of dead space under front and rear racks that seems like it would be the ideal place for lights and battery packs. Does anybody make racks with the lights integrated into them, or lights designed to mount in that space?

    Giant offered a model for like 2 years that had some rather unique racks. The racks were the same on the two price points; the higher end had a pair of blinkies front and rear mounted below the platforms, the base model just had empty holes.

    I am unaware of any racks that have built-in lights...

    Some bikes. Hell, they're all the same, ain't they?

    The first two rows of lights are made for rack mounting. I've got a Selectra (bought it on a trip to Germany) and it's been doing well. Peter White and Harris Cyclery both carry many B&M lights.
