Soubitez LED taillight retrofit

    Newer Older

    Originally I retrofitted this taillight housing with a Sigmo Micro battery-LED. The bike has since been updated to dynamo lighting, so the taillight is now updated with the internals of a B&M Seculite Plus dynamo taillight (the same internals as used in this retrofit):

      I think I scooped up some taillamps from the same seller but should have grabbed one of these! Your retrofit turned out quite nice...

      Those are "merely" Pasela 700x28s? They look puff-a-licious here.

      The light and fender fluting is fantastic. Beautiful.

      I had to file the lens to fit between the flutes. The taillight was probably designed to fit a wider fender, without sitting over the flutes. But it worked out well. Space inside that housing is tight! The new LED screw-in bulb offered by Compass Bicycles would be a much easier retrofit for this taillight.
