    morning CC'ers!

    as i've been telling anyone who might be in earshot, i picked up my new bike this week. went out on it early evening and it was only when i was getting set and thinking about sticking my lights on it, just in case i played out til late, that the shape of the seatpost occurred to me..it's an aero' post and my rear light (the little exposure one, can't remember the name), seems to be designed for standard posts only...i could perhaps put some non-marking car-clay around it so that it molds to the post and doesn't move about/scratch the bike/blind the hedgehogs in the hedges, but i wondered if there was a better alternative - perferably one that doesn't involve me buying a new set of lights!

    cheers as always CC'ers :thumbsup:
