I used to pass a guy commuting on a daily basis who had very bright flashing lights that you would notice from over 100 metres even in bright daylight, there was no way you could miss him coming (they weren't distracting or dazzling). I hadn't really thought about daytime lights prior to that but given how frequently cars at junctions seem to spot cyclists quite late I thought it would be a sensible addition.

I tend to use my Exposure joystick on the front, it lasts for ages in flashing mode, is relatively small and can't be missed. I still need to find a decent rear light that is similarly bright and long lasting.

I'm also running front and rear during the day.

The Tracer front from exposure has been out of stock for ages so I've opted for a dual purpose light for the time being. I purchased a Go Pro light mod that functions both as assist light on my camera or as a blinking front light on the bike. Runs approx for 7 hours in this mode. Best thing is I don't see it as it's blocked by the Wahoo. It's a light to be seen with, not to see with imo mostly due to limited battery life in standard mode. Computer mount is an Enve stem mount with a Go Pro tripod adapter glued underneath, it happens to be the exact same diameter.



In the rear I've got the tracer Exposure under the saddle which is absolutely fantastic. I will purchase the front once they're back available.

They're never open when I'm in downtown Saus. But we've got a custom S-Works Tarmac McLaren that would cost about $20k. Ltd edition frame, full Campy Super Record EPS 12-speed, EE brakes, etc.
