comment Which front and rear lights can run while charging?
@ChrisH any examples of good lights which run off 8.4 V? I'd be interested in checking some out and reviewing them.

comment How to give away lights to cyclists without lights?
This was going to be my answer but Moz beat me to it. If this is something you're passionate about, work with some local businesses and legitimize it! A combination of the gift certificate and light giveaway option if you were partnered with a bike shop might be that they could either get a free cheap light, or a coupon for $5-10 off a set of good lights at the shop. Or, even let them take the free light, and exchange it for a discount on a better light if they wanted to upgrade in the future. Then you can take the exchanged free lights and give them out again!

comment Protecting bike attachments such as lights against theft
See above re: "tend to be inferior products as they must make other compromises in order to be harder to steal while also being priced competitively". These aren't very good lights for the money.

comment Protecting bike attachments such as lights against theft
@Batman most thefts like the ones the OP is referring to are likely a theft of opportunity. It's a pain to carry around an extra lock just for your seat, but I'd do it if I was regularly in a high-risk area. Of course, any lock can be cut by a sufficiently determined bike thief; it's all about being less valuable and/or less accessible to a thief than the bike next to yours.

@EvanWarren to the contrary, anything which can be easily stolen from a bike will be stolen in many areas. Sure, some towns are safe enough that you might not need to worry. But considering that nice bike lights can cost upwards of $100, it's not really that surprising. You wouldn't leave a $100 bill taped to your seat and expect it to still be there when you got back. It's sad, but it's the unfortunate reality.

comment How should I configure my tail-lights?
Glad you found it useful. I do use the Hotshot on its highest setting and I don't think it's a problem. If you want to get longer battery life though, knocking it down a notch or two is fine. I've tried to contact NiteRider about borrowing some of their new lights for a review but my old contact there retired, and nobody's responded to my emails. If I can't get through I'll see if I can get one elsewhere.

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.
