I use Lezyne Super Drive (old model) in blinking mode during the day. You can see it a mile away in bright sunlight. It works like a magic wand & I wouldn't ride without it. Plus, it's a great "to...

Probably CH original because it's very directional. The new model Hotshot 80 has a larger spread lens. I have both and they are great as main rear lights.

Actually, you can still buy plenty of tail lights under 20 lumens and Cateye Reflex is one of them. Almost all of $10-15 are:

Not very practical for the original poster who asked for a good daytime light. Not bad as a secondary rack light but Serfas is a much better option.

I mean "2 lumens". 20 lumens would actually make it a decent light for riding at night. There is a space between . and 2.

I agree with everything you said except the Reflex doesn't have 20 lumens. More like 2. 20 lumens would actually make it a decent light for riding at night.

Cateye Reflex is a joke for daytime riding and that's a fact. I wouldn't even ride with it at night in the city with lots of ambient light. Two AAA batteries and long run times make it a little...

I use the Serfas as a rack light in addition to Cygolite Hotshot 80. I made it non-removable by drilling its back panel & mounting it permanently to a rack with a bolt and nut. But if you need it to...

I have a Hotshot too. But it's nice to have two tail lights in case one fails. Also, Serfas has a large CPSC reflector & is a perfect rack light which Hotshot is not.

You're right. Sorry. Mixed it up with Serfas 80. Hotshot has a much better old style mount including one for the rack unlike the silicon crap the Axiom & Serfas have.
