    Improvised helmet mount

    Guys 'n gals...

    I came up with a cheap and easy way to put a light on my helmet using the common black O-rings that come with most of the inexpensive LED lights. It's made from a piece of PVC pipe of similar diameter as the handlebars, and is hot glued to the helmet after matching paint is applied (optional). Super easy and low profile/unobtrusive. It's a lot easier to put on/take off than dealing with a bunch of velcro and that big ugly plastic head mount thing that comes with these Chinese lights.

    I run the power cord across the back of the helmet and through a zip tie that is left loose to keep the cord from flopping around, and then down to the battery in my Camelback.

    Good luck!

    It looks great. I was thinking about trying something similar but fortunately I was able to make and old NightRider mount work. I don't like the way the stock mount works on my Xeccon Spiker 1210. This would be a viable alternative for us who don't like the stock mounts. As far as the cable goes I always just run mine in and out through the helmet vents to keep it in place.
