    GoPro Compatible Light Mount?

    My new helmet has a slick GoPro mount. I thought I would be able to use it for my light (Magicshine) this winter, but have had zero luck finding a GoPro compatible light mount.

    I can't be the only one who's had this idea. Anybody know of one?

    I see that someone made some and had them for sale on here but they are long gone.

    Thanks!

    Yeah I remember reading that thread. Maybe you could convince them to make some more. I remember thinking that it was something that could be easily made by 3d printing. Not that I have ever 3d printed anything. There are services on the web where you upload your design and they print it for you. It was $6 for the setup, plus a fee for every cubic centimeter of material used.

    As perfect antipode to your magicchina, sorry, magicshine light I can tell you Lupine has some GoPro mounts in its offers:
    Helmhalter
    But I fear they are not technically compatible, not to mention the cost and ideological incompatibility.

    Sorry I am just getting around to answer this as I had a mountain bike crash earlier in the week that put me in the hospital for a couple days. Burned in at a high rate of speed and broke two ribs, punctured my lung, and a concussion. Other than that I am good to go.

    I have used the CandleTorch one before and remember it to be around $25. Just looked and they are $8.50 now.

    I have been using a Drift GoPro Adapter that is about $13. I mill off the part with the slot and remove the foam padding. I then adhere it to the light housing with a thin layer of ShooGoo. The ShoeGoo has an incredible peel strength and works great. You have to be sure and let the ShoeGoo dry for 24hrs before putting any stress on it.

    GoPro Compatible Light Mount?

    You can look on the trailtorch website. Their light mounts to the gopro mount. They have a few adapters that might could serve as a DIY mount base.

    Wow that sounds like a very serious crash. I hope you recover soon.
