Installing a B&M Toplight XS on an Xtracycle Snapdeck w/Magic Carpet
- I *finally* got around to installing my Busch & Müller Toplight XS taillight on my Xtracycle today... I'd been putting it off for far too long (think years not months) but in the end it was a quick and fun project.
I used a T-Bracket from Peter White Cycles and, since I have a Magic Carpet on my Snapdeck, elected to fabricate a small wooden shim from plywood to clear the Magic Carpet's fabric. I used a Dean's Micro Plug to connect the wiring underneath the Snapdeck and allow for easy removal.

So nice not having to think about batteries!! I'm keep the Planet Bike Superflash along as backup / redundant lighting source, but there's just such a convenience to dynamo lighting that I've got to have it on all my bikes!
