    Sizing help please

    Hey gang, I need some guidance.

    I run some “retro style” handlebars on my singlespeed that have a cross brace. The space between the “bar clamp” portion and the cross brace (available space” is 2”). I need a light that will fit in there with at least a little room to spare, so it doesn’t tap against the brace in rough terrain. My MS 872 barely fits, but I was looking for another light as it seems to have developed a short and cuts out intermittently.

    The new Magicshine lights just look taller/too tal to fit in there when you factor in the bar mount, but maybe I’m wrong. I have no way to verify that because no one sells them locally. One other important point is that the bars are a 22.2mm diameter, so 25.4 and larger bar clamps won’t fit because I can’t shim them up tight enough to prevent movement. I’ve had the most luck with o-ring type mounting.

    Looking for something in the 900-1500 lumens range, around $150 with a battery. I’ve attached a couple pics that maybe you can visualize better. Thanks for any advice you can give ~

    If anyone has a picture with a 902/906 next to an 872, even better.

    If you get a 902/906 light you can convert it to GoPro mounting.....
