    Hi,
    it is very easy to use any other mount, just unscrew old mount from the lamp head and attach something else.

    I am using mount for Lupine Tesla 4. And it is working very well.
    I bought it from: http://tinyurl.com/2buegw6 .
    In order to work I used two small small pieces of rubber bend - those that usually come with ordinary bicycle lights and one longer screw.
    (Pieces of rubber are needed just in the front part of mount.)

    Does anyone know of another source for a similar mount? The 30Euro postage charge (to Australia) is a bit off putting!

    This Australian site stocks the Lupine mounts for $40 and I think $5 shipping: http://www.virtuascape.com.au/index.php?productID=382

    I have looked around for the same style magicshine mounts but haven't found it separately.

    This is fancy aluminum version, much more expensive then ordinary plastic version.

    They also have ordinary version for 20AUD:

    I found it here (uk site, so shipping to Australia might be expensive):
    http://tinyurl.com/2uut5rk
    But the price is almost the same as Lupine mount (ordinary version).

    Regards

    Sorry about that. Was so excited to announce the new product I rushed the pics.
    Here ya go:


    Just to be clear, there's 3 separate components which you purchase individually depending on your requirements

    1. The base unit which replaces the standard Magicshine O-ring mount
    2. The handlebar mount bracket
    3. The helmet mount bracket
