    Mounting a light to fork

    Anyone know of a headlight that mounts directly to mid-fork braze-ons?

    I haven't seen one, but such a thing would be great.

    Not many bikes left with such a mount, though, so likely not a big enough market to aim for specifically.

    As much as I hate BLT Lights, they have this.



    It's the BLT Firewire 4.0

    I use a Knog Frog in flashing mode on each bike fork.

    The closest thing I've seen to what you're asking about is the Chronometro Nob, usually used to mount cyclecomputers to aero bars w/o it being 90 degrees the wrong way.
    It's not straight to the lowrider braze-on, but it's of similar function.

    I have mounted a NR MINI Newt on my left fork before I just used a peice of small bungee and cut it to the right size tied a square knot in it. You can use just about any light with the same mount type of mount (dinotte) with bungee just about where ever you want it.

    I recently graduated from $15 Trek headlights that stop working after a month, to a good, bright light that I've mounted on my helmet. I immediately realized that the biggest benefit of this change may be the huge vibration reduction. It's also great to be able to aim the light without turning the bike and the extra height makes me much more visable.

    I'd think about the pounding and splashing your light is going to take before I put it on my fork.

    I was >this< close to mounting a Niterider MiNewt x2 Dual setup on my fork. Unfortunately the cables exit the lamp housing from the bottom which meant they'd be sticking directly into my spokes.

    The Minoura mount is great but can't be used on CF forks unfortunately (i have one on my stem to hold my cyclometer).
