How accessible are the controls, especially on the rear light, to switch modes on the fly?
Can the headlight be easily swiveled on the stem? Alternatively, how easy is it to reach...

To the ninja who stepped directly in front of me at the intersection of 19th and N. Van Buren in Arlington, then screamed "HELLOOO!" at me:
I do apologize, I should have approached the...
I wear "thermal gloves" (whichever brand is on sale when it's time for a new pair) under about 45-50 degrees. I try to get them a tad large so I can wear Smartwool liners under them when it drops...
