Bike light suggestion
Quote | Reply
I recently built up a Argon NItrogen and am looking for some help with finding a front and rear light with my setup. I have a enve stem with the enve computer mount and am running specialized aero bars. My old light was made for round bars and could possibly be setup on the drops but I would prefer a different setup. And my rear light is pretty tight on the argon seatpost and popped off once. I run either a wahoo or pioneer computer. Anyone else with a similar setup?

Are you looking for daytime safety lights or nighttime navigating lights.

For daytime use, there's nothing better than Bontrager Flare's.
They have some interesting integrated mounts /adaptors on their website.

For simple bar mountain headlights for night use, I always use Light N. Motion. However, if you try to mount via gopro mount to the under side of a garmin mount, the unit will be upside down and as such I'd recommend the Urban series as opposed to the Taz (beam pattern would be upside down).

I have Serfas thunderbolts 2.0 front and back. Easy to mount on aero bars and seat stays. I also have a Bontrager R-flare in back. Motorists many times thank me for being so visible.

Exposure TraceR using the saddle rail mount - super sleek and super bright.

Front light is a Cateye Rapid X3 fixed to the fork leg under the brake - a bright daytime light with some very good flashing mode.

Aforementioned Lezyne strip drive is a great option to fix to an aero seat post too

What type of mount are you using with the flare on the front if you have aero bars.

Where is the best/easiest place to mount a front light on a tri bike so it's seen. The flare combo gets good reviews
