Just received some swanky new Macro Drives, but I'm having some trouble working out where to put the rear one on my winter bike, which has a aero seatpost.

Anyone got any clues, or do I just stick it on the seatstay?

Cheers in advance.

I don't know what bike you have, but on my CAAD8 I fitted a light on the seat tube, below where the seat stays join the top tube, shining through the hole between them.

Yep it won't fit there because my seattube is aero profiled, and the elastics don't stretch all the way around.

Today I had it on the seatstays, but because of the weird angle that the lights are designed to sit at, the beam was pointing almost straight up  17

Still looking for a solution.

Have you tried contacting Upgrade (the UK distributor) for suggestions?

Martin was very helpful when I had an issue with a Mini Drive light.
