So I just bought my first real light -- the Moab -- and am looking forward to trying it out on a 230-mile ride tomorrow.
Has anyone mounted one of these with aerobars? Got a pic or a description of what an effective set-up is? I'd rather use the light mounted to the bike than my helmet. Any thoughts, advice, etc. appreciated. Thanks!

Best mounting for any light is on the fork if you can manage it. Failing that, mount it upside down below the handlebars, just outboard of your aerobars. If you do the latter, inspect the light for drain holes which will now be water entry holes, and tape them shut.
Good discussion of this here:

The extension bar that my light and computer are mounted to cost me $10 at REI ... you can find them in a couple different lengths, short for just one light or computer, or longer to be able to put more than one thing on it, or something that needs more space to clamp to.
