I felt these were designed by someone in California the did not know much about wet weather riding. They allow too much spray, even with mud flaps, on to the bike since they should have used a wider fender. Part of the purpose is to keep the bike clean and reduce maintenance.
It will come on when you plug the bike in even if the headlight is off.
I should clarify, it's only after riding with the light on. After I turn off the light or battery, the tail light stays on for a while.
Thanks for the welcome and info guys, the commute thread is what twisted my arm to order the bike.
I've ordered the rack and a set of ortlieb back-roller panniers.. will post photos once installed.
I didn't want to ruin the clean turbo look, but function over form eh... will make commuting to work everyday possible.
Will look into the buddy flap or similar after some wet weather testing
The rear LED looks really good Marko, I might try a different saddle now the light will be removed
They will go off eventually. I think the lights may have a capacitor similar to the dynamo versions to keep the light on at a stop light. No idea why an ebike needs that. It will come on when you plug the bike in even if the headlight is off.
The rack is in fact a Racktime rack that is used on bikes with dynamo power, thus the capacitive supply.
