Indeed. However the problem is that there are many sizes of tube to which the lamp-bracket needs to
be mounted, and it's those that can be tricky to get hold of. In particular I'm trying to get clamps
to attach rear lights to a couple of racks and need clamps for about 12mm/0.5inch tubes. It's these
(and clamps for >30mm tubes) that Zyro do not keep in stock. I wouldn't expect any LBS to have them,
but the national importer should if they're on the manufacturer's list.
Trying to use the same lamps with two radicaly different bikes is tricky. I don't want to have two
sets of lamps because of the difficulties of keeping all the batteries charged, and CatEye offer a
set of very adaptable brackets so that I can use one set of lights (2 front & 2 rear in fact) on two
bikes, leaving the brackets permanently attached to the bikes. Well thats my theory anyway.
