Saw this on facebook today. Looks interesting.That's a pretty nice idea. I have one of these, and I get a lot of comments on it:It's b r i g h t and colorful, which helps sideways visibility a lot. The downside? Three double a's mean a lot of weight traveling around the wheel. I'm in the process of relocating the batteries to the hub to help the weight distribution. I've ridden through two winters with it attached and no water problems.The second light I like, which I don't have experience with, is the Reelight. The magnetic induction is very attractive. http://www.reelight.com/They do specify 3mm or less distance between the magnets, which could be tricky on the back side of the Xtracycle.
