    Replacing the Brompton reflector with a rechargeable tail light

    Can anyone recommend a rechargeable tail light to replace the Brompton reflector? I've looked online and I can only find two and they are both over $40 which seems a bit excessive. I see Nightrider sells a $10 plastic rack adapter for their tail lights - again seems like a lot of money for a bit...

    Have you been fined for running a red light on your bike?

    No I haven't but I was wondering how much the fine is here in the UK. I ask because I was just watching a guy in NY fined $190 for doing so. Seemed steep. View:

    Hi, Today i thought I would try a new route in order to commute to work.

    Tongsheng Nightshade or VLCD5 Hoodie - Lower light levels for my eBike display, using car window tinting film

    Which 2xAAA rear light?

    Recently my long serving Smart Lunar R1s have started falling off and one has been lost. Before I just get a like for like, are there any newer better options people are aware of. Much rather have AAAs as can pop fresh charged ones in rather than find a dead light when I need to set off to work.
