Is it? - I can't see for myself how bright it is while riding. The front light is much dimmer while stationary, so I assumed the rear dimmed also. Perhaps it was my angle of view, but when I got off the bike and checked the rear light I was unimpressed by its brightness. Maybe I need to be looking from further behind - have you actually observed your tailight from a drivers persective? Both moving and stationary?

Overall it is pretty inconspicuous to most views.
I considered that route you used, but chose the more direct path along the rear brake cable (which is fastened to three custom retainers under the top tube) and along the rack stay. I don't want to cable tie the wiring onto the rack, as it's likely I'll have to remove the rack to pack the bike for air travel.
It is quite inconspicuous, but I know it's there and as I've said before vis-a-vis the charging system wiring, I'm very particular about these things, and that is one reason why I hadn't fitted the lights sooner.
