Firstly this light fits excellently to the rear of the pannier/rack and was very easy to fit.
However a slight update to my original review. Although this light is great, it does have a tendency of "popping off" if you bump the back wheel up/down a kerb. To give you perspective I have a hybrid bike so cannot hammer up and down kerbs as the tyres are thin road tyres meaning I have to take my time - yet at least 2 out of 5 journeys result in the plastic cover of this light springing off and I just hear a clatter as it hits the ground.
I have had this light about 10 months and up until now I have managed to get off my bike and reattach the cover - it is robust and had not broken. Well - until tonight when the cover popped off again as I crossed a side road. Unfortunately in the time it took to get off my bike I turned to see a car turn into the street and run straight over ther cover totally destroying it.
So, if you do NOT go up/down kerbs or bumps this is perfect for you. However if your journey results in an even occasion kerb I would unfortunately avoid this item otherwise you will be replacing this item like I am going to have to do now.
My 'little niggle' concerns the design. Replacing batteries means unclipping the lens from the mount. A small coin does the job. Between the lens and the mount there is a thin red plastic gasket. This isn't actually attached in any way and, on a cold wet night when the batteries die (they know, don't they?), this gasket is going to go missing. The clip doesn't work without it, so I have fixed the gasket in place with a couple of v small spots of superglue.
A bit more thought needed when the next version is put together.
Others have said that they found the cover came off too easily, I thought this at first, as it can be pulled off with just fingernails, however, It needs the force to be applied at one end, so I've never had it come off while cycling, even over curbs and bumps on my bike which has no suspension.
