fenix...... can't wait
I just purchased a Fenix L2D 6 mode light and will post some photos and give a review when I get it. I purchased the $8 mount also and will use this light on my 17 mile commute. I may however mount it on my helmet. Any of you done this? I'd be interested to see photos and read experiences on how it worked for you.
I have mounted many fenix lights to my helmet.. The lockblock is not the ideal mount for this.. The bikeblock which has parallel mounting and a larger velcro strap works great.
I found that the zefal doodad plus is the easiest mounting.. The doodad gives more flexibility to aim the light a little higher. Both are super secure, the doodad plus is a little more minimalist.. I found a good source for the doodad +, from genuine innovations, the co2 people..
It is best when ordering a fenix that you should order 1 bikeblock and 1 lockblock.. Depending on your helmet, one will work better than the other..
There's also this option, direct mount using large-diameter O-rings or rubber bands through the helmet vents:
Mounting directly to the center rib is probably your best bet. On my helmet, side mount also worked OK.
As for how it worked... it's quite lightweight, waterproof and reliable. Trying to switch it from low range to Turbo while riding would require using both hands, so that's a downside if you intend to switch back & forth. I just ran mine on Turbo all the time. The throw (long-range illumination) could be better, but for a pocket flashlight, it is what it is.

I did the same, with a synthetic wine cork as a shim to adjust the angle of the light.
Well....I have access to a few wine corks!!!!

As a helmet light, it should be OK.
