    flashlight mounts

    I have seen a bunch of the same plastic flashlight mounts on various retailers' websites. which of these would be reliable for riding technical singletrack with,m say, two lights on my handlebars? i might have to find a creative way to fit one on my Giro Hex though.

    3.


    4. two-fish blocks, of course


    5. fenix?


    this is on a 31.8mm bar if that matters.

    I use 2 of the velcro blocks #4 on the bars and just velcro strap the other onto my helmet. No problems at all. The blocks are rubber so they conform to different sizes and really grab.

    I have the Fenix mount. Doesn't fit in 31.8mm. I did use it on my right bar end. Even though my TK11 is a super bright hand held flashlight, you need more light for any real riding.
    I finally stepped up to Exposure lights. They rock.

    I use the second one down on the leg of my WoundUp fork to hold the flashlight on my touring bike . Seem to work well , hasn't dropped the light yet .
    Only down side is the beam is pointed at the angle of the fork .

    I use the Twofish, easy to use, move and keeps the lights steady. That Fenix mount looks too bulky - not sure I could find room for it on the bars.

    never seen light holder #3 before, any details of where I could find one. This could be just what I need (then again!?!?)
    Cheers
