I just put a used magicshine mj816 and mj 818 tail light w/batt/charger/etc on ebay for $100 starting. I think that's the best you can do for the $100 mark.

PM for links.

How do I switch from an integrated shifter/brake system to an index shifter?

I have a Dawes Lightning Cross set up for commuting but I'm getting some, errr, "man" problems from sitting in a forward lean for a long time. I want to change to a more upright, relaxed posture like...
