Thanks for the super-useful information, both of you. I was thinking of external-casing like they make for cameras, if only it existed for this very-specific model of rack-mount tail light!

Waterproofing Plastic-Housing Lights?

Hi all,

Wondering what all of you do to prevent rain failures for your lights. As a preface, I run dynamo lighting on my two 'main' bikes (randonneur // city commuter).

During a recent 600k, I...

Sounds like a plan! Unless you're running fenders, then run as big as you can clear. Have fun dialing in *your own preferred* tire pressure :thumb:

Heads up: the 100% charge after hours and hours of use is totally normal (in my experience). And then it will precipitously drop to 4% - Low Batt warning, out of nowhere. I carry a Gomadic charger...

If you're headed there, I would steer towards a cyclocross/gravel bike with generous clearances for big tires, and fender/rack mounts. With a grand to spend, that will get you started pretty nicely....

There's a chance I am wrong, but my understanding is that 7-speed wheels are usually thread-on freewheels. Upgrading the drivetrain would require a whole new 8-9-10 splined freehub, in addition to...

Fenders for a caliper-brake 20" folder, 28-451 tires
