Haha, yes they are. You guys designed some great lights. I actually bought them for my cannondale bad boy before I realized the steer tub is 1.5 inches. So then I decided to build this bike because I wanted to keep the lights.

funny story, I originally bought them to put on my cannondale bad boy but didn't check the sizing and when I realized they wouldn't fit I decided to build this bike. So basically, I really like the lights. They are a little on the heavy side but the integration and style make up for it in my opinion. I really like them.

on the cannondale, yes, its head tube is 1.5" and the front spacer light is 1.125 or 1.25 without the adapter.

But i can't figure out how you are running thoose straps

Posted almost 7 years ago

MGear4817

MGear4817 says:

Thanks, the straps are diagonal so you out your foot in at an angle and when you straighten it on the pedal it clamps in a little better than a horizontal strap would. Its a little tricky so ill have to get used to it

It just arrived today, now all I have to do is put it back together. I hope its a decent frame. I researched different builders and this seemed ok. Have you had any experience with them?
