I am a fan of Kickstarter projects, as it gives everyone the chance to develop an idea, and bring it to fruition. One such example is Sparse, a company developing front and rear lights for bicycles. The innovative twist here is the mounting system. The rear light is attached via the seat post, meaning the only way to take it off is to remove the seat post. The front light replaces a headset spacer, requiring removal of the stem for installation. It’ll take a bit of time to install the lights, but once installed, they are safe from prying hands. Or, I should say safer. Without being built into the frame, this is about as theft proof as I’ve seen. The lights are machined from aluminum, and are available in either black or natural. The $45,000 goal has been reached, and shipment is expected in March of 2013
