    Headset top cap light mount? Other options?
    Is there any other company that makes something similar to this:
    Purely Custom Online Store - Bicycle Accessory Mount 84 Degree - Custom Bicycle Accessories

    Or maybe even a way to DIY one?

    There is a bunch of computer mounts on ebay that can be used for lights. Token makes a nice one that is a headset top-cap as well.

    Hylix Carbon Computer Mount is nice too and weights only 12g claimed.

    Checking out other mount options...What do you think about this type of mount?

    I saw something on another site with aluminum clamps and an aluminum tube for less $, but I can't find it now:madman:

    I use their single mount and love it. The double looks like overkill. Plus, with the open end you can use things that don't have a swing hinge.

    I made a similar mount using two of these M-Wave handlebar organisers:

    To better support the weight of the lamp I used two of hte brackets with just one centre section. It works beautifully. Another bonus is that it raises the lamp about 80mm so I get far less reflection glare from the gear cables (I use this set up on my road bike with Shimano 6600 levers).

    It is quickly and easily removed too, I keep the lamp attached to the bracket.

    The plastic brackets don't seem too fragile, do they? I need something 100% rock solid. Maybe I'll do the same and order 2 of the aluminum clamp ones and figure out my own cross bar.

    Not in my experience, they are rock solid. No vibration to speak of, on a road bike, on rough lanes.
