My Fenix Rack Mount Pics
X-post from touring forum.
Figured out a great way to mount my Fenix lights. This is perfect if you have lots of space on your front rack.
I found some foam "tubes" at a local surplus store. Then I slit the bottoms so they would fit around the bars. Then I built up the rear by wrapping a couple pieces of old tire tube around one of the beams so the lights would be angled slightly down. Then I used blue electrical tape to tape them down. Blue tape works best.
They are secured by two O-rings per flashlight, with an additional large O-ring for redundancy because yes, I know, the Space Shuttle blew up because of an O-ring failure. They are still adjustable by adding shims if you need to. Popsicle stick or something, little twig maybe, works fine.
