I have the Blitzu tail light but it won't fit around a Venge seatpost. What do you use that fits the Venge seatpost? Thanks for the ideas...

Cateye Rapid x3 works great for me.

I have a Allez Sprint, which uses the same seatpost as a Venge. I'm going to throw in a +1 for the Cateye Rapid X3 and also suggest a Fly6 (camera/light). I'm running both on my Sprint with no issues.

I use the Lupine Rotlicht fixed to the saddle rails. Eliminates the problem entirely (if you don't use a saddle bag).

+1 on any of the Cateye Rapid X1,2,3 lights. Also Serfas makes some really nice lights and their universal mount works fine on the venge vias or gen 1 venge. They make an aero specific mount as well.

Some of the Cateye lights fit to their saddle rail mount; other Cateye lights are not compatible with it. I use Cateye Rapid 5 with Cateye saddle rail mount.

just get a saddle mount universal light or fix it with zip-tie

you can try also a silicon flexible light ( i'm using a cheap chinese one for a while and is ok )

Rotlicht has always worked just fine for me on my Venge (original) and ViAS using the included strap. I use a saddle bag when I'm riding with the light, so a rail mount is not an option for me.

I have an Allez Sprint as well. Venge seatpost and I run the Cygolite Hotrod 50 USB Rear Bike Light.
