I'm sure someone will chime in with a good recommendation for a tail light, but if your saddle bag has any kind of strap or hook going across the back of it, most of the relatively cheaper rectangle ones have a clip that will hook onto the strap.
I'd still keep the current one, but would try to find another one that has more lumens and will be brighter.

Not mine, but a bike I built for a friend with parts found round the shop. She wanted a 'road bike' but we didn't have any 700c frames small enough...so I turned a 26 inch bike into a drop bar commuter and it worked way better than expected. One of the more fun projects I've done b/c the now owner was so incredibly stoked to start riding.
ive been using the superflash for about a year and i have no complaints
gonna get the hotshot next time i need a new light, though ive heard that the mount sucks
ride bikes, eat food. the circle of life.
On the contrary, the Hotshot mount works great for me. I will say that I decided to add a few small washers in the mount clamp to make the clamp a bit more rigid when I tightened down the clamping screw (gives the screw something to tighten against instead of just pushing the 2 clamp ends closer and closer together). But doing that makes the mount very solid. The light itself goes into the mount with a nice solid "click" and also comes out of the mount easily enough, but not so much that you feel like it will come out on a harsh road surface.

How's the fit and ratio's for her?
My bike, in it's spot at the office.
I'm trying to commute 1 day a week. It's 23 miles there a bit over 24 back.
I put insane miles on the car due to family duties. But this day is for myself.
what kind of reflectors do you have on those spokes? i bet they look really cool when rolling.

They are called "Lightweights for wheels" comes in a pack of 80 or so (more than enough) , go on quite easy and are almost unnoticeable unless at nighttime. I'll see if i could get a shot of the wheels spinning and see what it looks like. Thanks!
I wore out a le tour of that vintage I wanted a tempo but couldn't find the extra money. Great to see you still riding it although the concept of a "clean" bike confuses me.
