Is there a rack attachment for Blackburn Mars 3.0?
I was going to get a Planet Bike Super Flash and the corresponding rack mount (http://ecom1.planetbike.com/3108.html) but my night commute came up on me quick and I had to get what my LBS had which was a Blackburn Mars 3.0. I had it hang on my trunk bag but I'd really like to mount it on my rack. So I'm wondering if there is a product for this light like the one I linked to above for the Super Flash. Or does anyone know will the Mars 3.0 hook onto that Planet Bike attachment?
Good question. I have the same light and obviously it cannot be mounted to the seat post if you have a bag on the rack. My intention is to fabricate a bracket which will allow you to still use the quick release feature on the Mars 3. When I get it done, I will post some pics for you.
I just took a peice of aluminum strap the width of the pivot on the seat post mount and bent it into a P screwed the long end to holes in my rack ( now the P is laying on it's side kind of like this --o) and then screwed the clip/pivot part of the mount to the round part of the P.
Acts just like the seat post mount to pivot etc and stays clipped.
You can never have enough rear blinkies.
I like to have two so I can tell when one is running low on batteries (they always look bright until you compare with another!)
You can make anything attach to a rack with a bit of work but the mars 2.0 is designed to rack mount.
Get a 2.0 and keep the 3.0 for emergencies or cable tie to your helmet.
