Light and Motion Seca 750. For $123 shipped, I couldn't even find the battery (by itself) that cheap.

My best rear light is the Exposure Flare, and I got the new Blaze ... which is USB rechargeable.

http://www.exposurelights.com/product/0 ... e-mk1-(new)/

Twice as heavy, but nice look/feel with push button and battery level indicator etc. Maybe sits more secure than the Flare, as weight is located close to the seatpost.

Mount bracket is not made for aero seatpost, but can be rigged and the red elastic binders can be max stretched to fit. I use the (larger size) Garmin Edge mount bands instead as they fit just about right and look better.

Bright it is ... and 5 lumens brighter than the Flare (80 vs 75).

they look nice, but I can't quite understand why these wheels are so popular with CK hubs. DT or Alchemy seem like the way to go...

DT straight pull would be my choice. Then possibly the new Alchemy 11 speed.

Now I can read my garmin while riding- bifocal lenses! http://www.dualeyewear.com
Great fit for those of us with a small face. The frame doesn't have the same solid feel as my Rudy Projects, but is guaranteed for 2 years, and this was 1/3 the price of the Rudy reader lenses, so I figured they are worth a try.

Finally got some blue SPD-SL cleats after wanting to try them for a long time. Used red for a while and liked it but could have used a little bit of float but yellow was way too much. I also molded my new pair of r315's for the season while checking out the r320's in the shop (with some envy).

Also, as my season starts this weekend, got a race tuneup for the ride, 2x Vittoria Evo CX III open tubs for race clinchers, new team bartape (yellow, bleh), some Oakley Radarlocks (silver, frame w/ blue vented lense, blue logo and black earsocks), and getting some Conti Sprinters glued
