Different mount for Cat Eye Rapid Mini Rear Light

I really like this light but I don't care for the mount.
This light will work with the Serfas TL-200 mount.
A little foam and it secures to a aero seat post tightly.

Yep, and you can lose the bulky band and use zip ties instead.

Since the question is very close…

Do all Cat Eye lights use the same bracket, or at least the Omni lights?

I'm going to order an Omni 3 set of front/tail lights, along with a couple of extra mounts so that I can use the lights on my two bikes.

Thank you.

If you buy a light that specifies it will run this many hours on two alkaline AAA batteries, don't expect it to be very bright.
Runtime:Approx 100hrs in constant, 150hrs in flashing, and 200hrs in rapid mode

The output in lumens seems to be a deep, dark secret. It is not mentioned on any of the sites that sell the light. If you take a quick look at reviews, one problem that seems to pop up often is the light is not very robust so has a tendency to come apart with the lens falling off. Doesn't seem like much of an improvement over dollar store lights. Before I learned about better lights I used them. Plenty bright but also tended to come apart.

Good to know. In my case, it's fine since I ride in the city, and only need lights to be seen.
