    need some help r.e. lights and mounts

    Hi guys,

    I have decided on getting one of the flashlights often reviewed on here (fenix i think they are).

    Is there something similar to get for a rear light? It should be fairly cheap, and easy to buy mounts for so I can have the mounts on 2 bikes and swap the light between them. A plus point would be if it can be mounted on a rack.

    Also is there a mount out there that has 2 parts, one which connects to the handlebars, and another which slides into it and locks. I guess it is similar to a lot of light mounts, but I want a flat area that I can fix things to, so they become easily mountable.

    (BTW I am in the UK)

    Sorry if I haven't explained myself too well!

    Thanks,

    Daven

    DIY flashlight holder (front or back)

    Daven

    look to the following link. Near the middle to bottom there is an additional link that will show how to use parts from an electrical warehouse to create holders. I think you can modify these to fit your application.

    Contact BlackburnDesign.com and ask them about extra mounts for their MARS blinkies. They will probably sell or send you an extra mount for free.

    If you have Fizik saddles, you can purchase the Fizik blinkie that fits in the I.C.S receptacle underneath your seat, assuming your saddle is a new enough model to have one.
    What is better than getting your heart rate up and saddle time?

    thanks for the link. not sure the mounts on there are quite what i want - i was hoping for something that will stay attached to the handlebars and my horn (buddy megahorn), so i can slide it in and out quickly (sorry that sounds a bit rude!!).

    The blackburn mars blinkies look pretty good, not sure if they'd send extra mounts to the UK, but i will certainly look into it. can they mount onto a rear rack?

    thanks,

    daven
