I am looking for a decent rear light to fit to the Felt AR4 but the rear seat post is the aero type so I need something for that or saddle mounted although I would like to fit a tool kit under the saddle.
Living MY dream.

    Moon Comet might do the job for you.

    Came out well in a recent Cycling + review and I bought one on the strength of that. Has two mounting options - one with an elasticated strap for around the seat post and the other which clamps to the seat rails. Should still be room for a saddle bag as long as it's not the type that also clamps to the saddle rails. One with a Velcro band that wraps through the saddle rails would probably be fine.

    About £30 or possibly cheaper if you shop around - got mine from Go Outdoors for £27 using their in-store discount card.

    I use the Cateye stuff on my Foil and have also used Lezyne without issue.

    I use a Giant Numen on the seatpost - they do a separate aero clip for that (the one that's shown is rubbish for my aero seat post).

    I have a Topeak seat pack which has a light clip on it, so I also have a Cateye TL-LD600 clipped to that. I had to buy the clip to attach it to the bag, but it was only a couple of quid.
    Is the gorilla tired yet?
