Hey 2manybikes. Thanks for all the taillight tests. You made us see the light! :-)

I picked up your favourite Flare taillight at a Performance shop today (http://www.performancebike.com/shop/....cfm?SKU=17696) for just 11 bucks.

I found the seat post clamp does not allow the light to be pointed horizontally. It can only be adjusted by 15' up or down, which is less than the angle on my seat post. So it points down to the street about ten feet behind my bike.

I guess there's no point having a light with a relatively narrow beam if you can't point it straight at the drivers. Did you have the same experience or did they change out the mounting bracket recently? On another thread I saw you custom made your own bracket. Was this for the same reason?
