The Knog Blinders pack into a very small and bright package. Over 7 years of research, design and plain hard work make a deceptively simple light that packs a heavy technical punch.

"stylish lights , nice and bright leds but it is flood lighting rather than spot lighting . Love charging by usb , but that does mean if they run out during a ride you can't swop out batteries . They will last the night ( tested on Dunwich Dynamo ) but don't get caught short by failing to charge them the next day"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality, Rugged

 Corsa SL LR 100mm - Air Fork 2011
Corsa SL LR 100mm - Air Fork 2011
Superleggera Chassis Marzocchi spent countless hours shaving excess weight and added it where it was needed to come up with the lightest parts list ever made for the new XC line. This design process is exemplified in our new monoblock magnesium casting with bulge points on the front and back side of the legs where the lower bushing seat is located. Many lightweight forks bulge completely around the entire leg, Marzocchi found after countless hours of computer and bench testing that they were able to remove precious grams of material while maintaining the strength and rigidity only where it was needed. AER Air Spring The 2011 Air system performs better then any other system on the market. The coil like plushness combined with the air volume adjuster offers the ideal compression curve to any rider. The low pressure required keeps the seals sliding smoothly on the surface avoiding any friction. Plus, a fixed piston in a closed cartridge helps to reduce weight thanks to the lower oil quantity needed in the system. Lockout Rebound Damper Combining the damping feeling and the reliability of the open bath cartridge with the lightweight of a closed cartridge? Impossible? Not for our engineers! Thanks to the compensation port any exceeding quantity of oil will flow out in the lowers keeping bushings and wipers lubricated. As soon the oil level in the cartridge decreases the quantity gets restored by bringing the previous expelled oil back inside. Combined with the Rebound and Lockout adjusters the LR damper is easy and effective for your best ride experience ever. Available on Corsa Superleggera LR and Marathon LR. Fitted and slotted bushings New bushing design features vertical slot for oil fluid and lubrication; fitted design process forms itself to the internal casting machine seat. The goal is to have the best feeling, most supple feel between the stanchions and the casting.

"Super light , these are the most expensive forks I have ever bought . They have a lock out for road riding which I use a lot . Dial the recoil of the forks to heavily damped , buy some enormous tyres like maxxis hookworms and riding over kerbs becomes a breeze. They come with a no maintenance guarantee for a year"
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight
Cons: Limited Color Choices

"these were easy to fit and I like the polygonal axle instead of square taper, the same tool to remove the crank will work . Not convinced about the protection of the bottom bracket bearings from dirt and water , but I'll have to ride many more miles before dismantling the bottom bracket to have a look. This crank arm set is pretty light and looks like it will withstand a lot of punishment"
Pros: High Quality, Rugged, Lightweight, Good Fit

Will these attach to an Aero seatpost, specifically a Giant TCR?

I don't think so .
These lights attach with a metal hook around a stretchy rubber loop.
As long as the rubber gets stretched enough around a thick enough post it will hold securely. However the Aero Seatpost narrows to the rear end and I suspect this light will not remain facing directly rear but move to point left or right without some extra padding
