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.

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.
