See.Sense Icon is good, it has the accelerometer and light sensing to react to the environment. It is about to be replaced by the Ace light which is COB (Chip on board) like many of the Moon lights. The new Ace light is BLE and ANT+ controllable as well.

I also have a Flare R which is another excellent light. The battery in mine is having difficulty holding charge now though after a few years of use. Off topic, but I have an Exposure front light which is still going strong from 2009 on the original battery. It only gets used in winter but still impressive!

Oh mine thank you all for the suggestions. Let me google for pics and see how they look. I have a Romin Evo pro saddle so hopefully fit will be ok

i been using Exposure TraceR Rear Light since i took up cycling few years back. Tucked below my saddle. Easily accessible for power on/off and charging.( been thru san marco, selle italia, specialized and finally now fizik saddle). My currrent fizik's model is without the integrated light system, the light mount is mounted on the rails.
i'm really digging this look and the mount. looks nice and cleanly tucked behind the saddle.

+1 on see.sense, though, buy the + version. Very very bright...

I use cygolite Hotshot (the older 2W model) .... I've been using it for 3 years and it's very good. It also works when connected to a powerbank, so it's excellent for Audax rides

I'm using it too!
Know what, I'm feeling great about free online casino games uk. It was a really big challenge for me to get into online games. Now I have no troubles at all.

+2 on the Fizik/cateye combo. I use the Rapid Micro with the ICS mount and it tucks neatly out of the way ImageImage

Not really out of the way or tucked- extends beyond the saddle which would mess up your BAAW shots

I use the Flare R, which is a seat post mount, and frankly find it to be the most bright in my area (Austin, TX). I do not really see any others that shine brighter on my rides - unless it is another Flare R.

I like the integrated systems above as I ride Fizik seats. However, I also run a small Lezyne seat bag. Where do you guys put your spare kits?

I like any usb-rechargeable vertical "bar" types that you can put at the lower part of the seatpost if you're using a saddlebag.

I also run the small lezyne bag and it tucks in nicely underneath the light without blocking it...I’ll post a pic when I get home
