Been using the Lightpost for about 3 weeks now and am really happy. Sometimes I still try to take off my old light before realizing those days are gone. The integrated button is a nice touch and so far it seems bright.
I liike the idea behind this seatpost but I am afraid implementation quality is really poor. It seems that tubing used in the seatpost is of very low quality, every seat adjustment left an ugly mark on this post https://flic.kr/p/NTArzF
Another thing I really wish seatpost had is auto shutdown feature as forgetting to turn lights off overnight usually drains batteries. I did find that out few times at night on the right back from office & unfortunately changing batteries requires tools & well batteries so I had to ride without lights.
I am still riding with it but every time I look at scratch marks I'm thinking of taking it out :(
Integrated lighting makes daily/nightly cycling easier and safer. Without external lights to remember, forget, charge, lose, etc... hopping on the bike after dark is natural.
That's why we're thrilled about our new LightPost: a 5 LED blinky light integrated directly into a seatpost for convenience and visibility. Add long battery life and rear illumination has never been easier. We estimate the average commuter will only have to change batteries once or twice a year
Minimum run time of 50 hours with 5 LEDs on steady mode
Run times as high as 200 hours in blink mode
Runs on 2 AA batteries (included)
SIZE: LightPost is only available in 27.2mm diameter. To find the size of your seatpost remove it from the bike. Almost all posts are engraved with the diameter, usually near the bottom. Alternatively, some manufacturers list those specs online. You're looking for 27.2mm, no other size will work. LightPost is compatible with all Mission Bicycles.
