re: Cygolite thumbscrew handlebar brackets
Is is harmful to the bracket to frequently switch them from bike to bike?
No, unless you use your gorilla strength to over tighten it. But the cygolite bracket actually holds, so you won't need to clamp it down too tight. It's a far better system than the niterider, by the way. You can't clamp the niterider bracket tight enough, and the light itself is front heavy and wants to rotate down on every bump. The cygolite is designed better and seems to have the attachment point closer to the center of gravity.

No, but spare brackets are cheap, so you may want to get one for each bike, just to speed things up.

I got extra brackets, no more adjustment and tightening problems.
i usually swap mine between my commuter and my weekend bike, and the bracket has held up for a few years now. that said, the little foamy bits was part of the insert have all disintegrated, and i use a piece of rubber strap for some friction to prevent the bracket from twisting down when the light head is on.

Thanks for the suggestions. I had no idea you could buy an extra bracket. Doh.
Anyhow, that sounds like the most convenient and economical solution.
