Anyone have any recommendations of good slim bright rear lights that can be mounted on the frame and not seat post? :)) wanted knog blinder but can't fit on frame only seat post.

lights have a better position where cars can see you on the post...

Exactly. Where's a driver's line of vision more likely to be, your seat post, or your seat stays?

Look at his bike. There's a reason he's asking.

Looks to me like he needs a smaller frame...

He could get a light that clips onto a belt, or one that attaches to a helmet.

The frame size is okay. Just that the frame on the seat post part is high as compared to other frames. Go compare. And even if I put my on seat post. I have a saddle mount so it's blocked.

Compare the two length. Haha. It's the geometry and the design of the frame.

If you had a bike that fit you you'd be able to raise the seat post high enough to have the light at the bottom the seat post where it'd be visible.

His bike looks like it fits fine. If it had a seat tube that stopped right above the top tube, it would have a typical amount of seatpost showing (as he pointed out above).

Knog Blinder's stretch pretty nicely. You can probably get it around on your seat stays.
