Good 'non-cateye but still quite good' budget lights.

    Rear lights and even more specifically, one that the mount will screw onto a flat plate on the back of a rack.

    Any ideas? I'm loathe to get cateye and fudge it as I refused to pay an extra £10 for a rack with a cateye compatible light mount.

    sure there was a thread a few weeks ago with a link to a website selling a bracket that let you fit lights to racks

    I was keen but I like the light a bit higher than that, ditched the saddle bag and mounted it on the seat post

    Does the flat plate on the rack have slits in it? I reckon you could hook a Smart SuperFlash through one of those.
    £15-ish and v.bright.

    Can you not just file off the plastic locating boss on the light and then screw it onto the rack? (or am I missing summat, as usual)

    Thanks for the input folks.

    Any idea why smart lights never have a spec on the websites - can't find what batteries they use!

    2 x AAA. They are amazingly bright. I will warn you now, don't look straight at the light when it is on!! xx(:tongue: (Of course you will won't you!!;))

    I used one of these to attach a Cat Eye rear light to my rack:
