    Does Anyone Make A Light for 31.8 Bars?

    Guess that says it. New bike has 31.8 oversized bars. My trusty old Performance headlight won't fit it, and the time for lights is rapidly approaching.

    I prefer 10 to 15 W halogen, although when LEDs get that bright, I will change.

    cateye make different brackets for standard and OS bars for their lights



    or

    you could use a Minoura space grip which fits most handlebar sizes but allows you to continue using your old clamps.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Headstrong Lights make lights that go from 7-20W halogen. Sealed Lead Acid battery = long, dependable life.
