    Using a disc brake adapter mount to attach your light to a Surly rack.

    Thereís not many clever ideas falling out of my head.
    Never have been.
    But this one I like. Born from endless hours of grinding along, staring at the front of various bikes. Wondering how to best attach a light to these racks.
    Sure- this can work elsewhere too.
    Iíve used it (and a long bolt) to attach the wifeís light/fender set up on her commuter.

    When used w/ a Surly rack, it tucks these overpriced lights in under the rack a bit. Helping maybe keep it more safe and less likely to hit impact various objects.
    Perfect? No.
    Better than factory mounts? Absolutely.
