OS Handlebar Flashlight Mounts
I've been out of the loop on this scene for quite a while so forgive my ignorance. I have a AA LED flashlight I got from DX a few years ago. Likely an UltraFire CREE type thing. In the past I've attached it to my helmet using a velcro mounting set up, both DIY and little universal mount from DX.
I'm looking for some way to mount the light on my OS 31.8 handlebar. What options are out there these days?
I really liked the idea of the DKG Mini Mount but they don't make a version for OS bars.

The Twofish Lockblocks Flashlight Holder works on my OS handlebar. Just be careful to get a real Twofish, there are a lot of other brands that look the same. I got a counterfeit one off Amazon and it didn't hold as well off road, though it probably would have been fine for commuting. The original Lockblocks work better for AA size flashlights, the Cyclopblock is for larger flashlights. I got a set of 3 from Jensonusa.com for $13, if you just want one you might be best off asking at your local bike shop to make sure you get the real deal.
I have this one and never really use it except as a backup if all of my TwoFish knockoffs (from DX) are out on loan already.

I find the rubber/velcro TwoFish knockoffs to be the most versitile mounts, best bang for the buck. They can be used on different size bars, with different size torches, and even on helmets (depending on the helmet). Plus you can get them in two different configurations.
