    Taillight that will fit a seat mast?

    My frame's seat mast is 37mm, but most clamps seem to go up to about a 33mm diameter. Is anyone making a light specifically for frame's with masts instead of narrower posts?

    Blackburn Flea has a velcro strap. Will fit for sure.

    Cateye use a toothed plastic strap that will fit anything.
    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    No, I have a Cateye LD610, and that strap is just a few mm too short.

    That's what I use and it should fit for sure. I know I cut a fair amount off of my velcro strap so it wasn't overlapping on my 27.2mm post.

    If it doesn't...you can purchase a longer velcro strap for cheap and use that to make it fit

    The fact that it's rechargeable is extra bonus

    Not the answer you are looking for, but a lot of people in such situations choose the right chainstay.

    60 Lumens Tail Light USB rechargeable. Flexable mouting strap. Brightest tail light I have ever seen. Seems like cars give me a extra few feet now.

    I believe the Knog should fit:

    KNOG : Lights : Frog Strobe

    I have one on my commuter, I love it. And inexpensive!

    +1 Princeton tec swerve.There is a grey spacer that you do not have to use and fits my madone seatmast perfect. I had been using it with the grey spacer when I got it. Did not like the way it fit, so I was going to sand it down to fit the profile of the seatmast. Spacer popped out and now fits perfect. Also got mine from amazon.

    You could always try the Magic Shine system as it uses a rubber strap to hold the light in place and works with pretty much any seat tube. Only down fall is it has the battery set up too.
