This answer could be improved by indicating how to correctly align a non-symmetric beam.

This answer could be improved by dealing with light alignment, rather than fixing the light to the bike. Its also a great answer to another question (correct and efficient fork bridge mounting of lights.)

comment Is it rude to take the lane, then filter when encountering congestion?
@Mσᶎ "Primary" and "Secondary" are terms of art from recent British cycling manuals and state sanctioned training. britishcycling.org.uk/cycletraining/article/…

comment Do we really need another bike size?
@DanielRHicks No, not at all: 27.5" is 650B, ISO 584 see sheldonbrown.com/650b.html . 650C is ISO 571, a different size used by our triathlete and time trial friends.

Sheldon's case for refurbing an 80s road bike that's too "sporty" to be a utility/tourer with 650Bs is more "make do and mend" than manufacturing. Put it this way: if I found my perfect OTS with braze ons from the 70s, I'd put 700Cs on it; if I found my perfect OTS with braze ons from the 80s, I'd put 650Bs on it. Regarding contemporary mountain bike manufacturers: its specious product differentiation to expand the market.
