(WARNING...slightly off topic)

Well, since Audax riding has been discussed a bit lately I have a question concerning mudguards and lights. Many of the pictures of participants (mudguards often required) seem to have what appears to be a rear flashing light on the back mudguard. I've seen adverts for lights to fit rear mudguards, but these were not battery operated flashers, but lights for a generator set up. Is there a rear battery operated flasher that is made to specifically mount to a rear mudguard?

Also, I picked up a box of mudguards from a guy and there were a couple of sets of ESGE's in there. They look totally different than my new set purchased from the fine folks at Harris Cyclery. These have a different stripe down the middle and use a single strut on either side of the front mudguard and not two on each side like current models. How long have ESGE's been in production? I realize the name has changed, but same product. THANKS!!!
