comment Right fork mounting point
@gaurwraith I was also thinking it might have been a mounting point for a fender or rack, but it's only on one side, which makes that seem unlikely.

comment Is there any rule of thumb for comparing lights rated in lux and lumens?
I'll put that into an answer shortly.

@PhilipKendall by the way, that Smart 700 is the equivalent to the new Planet Bike Blaze XLR 650.

@PhilipKendall how many LEDs in that light? Smart Lunar rebrands lights from other companies for sale in different markets, especially in Europe. They particularly sell a lot of Planet Bike and Portland Design Works lights under their brand. It looks like it's probably either the Planet Bike Beamer 5 or the Planet Bike Blaze 2w Micro. Interestingly, the Beamer 5 is claimed to put out 35 lumens... I wonder if when they rebranded it they just said "eh, lumens, lux, what's the diff" and called it a 35 lux light.

Thanks for the support guys! There's also some info on the FAQ about lumens vs. lux and other measurements. That section is going to be getting a rewrite soon with a lot more detail.

comment Why are brake lights not common?
@Aron I'd be quite interested to see your proposed BOM for such a system.

comment How much light is enough for year round commuting?
@PeteH it's common for reviewers to receive free samples to review, however some reviewers may also have an advertising relationship with some of the companies. However, with larger organizations, the people doing the advertising agreements and the people doing the testing may be completely separate groups. To ensure no conflict of interest, some reviewers like myself accept no advertising, sponsorship, product placement, etc. from any company whose products they review.

comment If a derailleur cable snaps on a long ride, how can I keep going?
@Batman I usually carry an allen wrench, a small adjustable wrench, small phillips and flathead screwdriver, and a pocket knife. That's about it. If there's a particular small tool that might be useful to carry for this sort of situation (that could be useful for other situations too) I could consider carrying it.

comment If a derailleur cable snaps on a long ride, how can I keep going?
@PeteH that sounds like a possibly viable answer. Could you expand it into an answer with info about how one would go about breaking the chain, (presumably) putting it back together, ensuring it's lined up properly, etc?
