Handlebar extender that mounts on the fron forks...

You know, where the reflecter sits, ala Old School Dynamos (literally just abouve the front wheel).

I know handle bar extenders exist, and I have my eye on the Minoura's. But is there anything that would attch to the reflector mount point and give a horizontal handlebar like mount?

This is a Busch and Muller mount. I don't think it'll handle anything too heavy though. Read more about it on Peter White's site here

I have V-brakes, so the mount hole is free, but the brakes may foul a bracket unless it has a flat taper.

That B&M mount look sperfect though. Thanks

A few years ago there was a brake booster which incorporated an accessory bar.

It was called a 'light booster'.

I think that would be ideal for what you want, if you can find one.

It's not exactly what you're looking for, but the TerraCycle mounts are pretty interesting. May be something you can use.

That B&M is exactly what I want, but I can't find a UK supplier. (I will order from PW, but would prefer to order this side of the pond if possible).

SJS do a Thorn mount for 2 lights here but that is a bot overkill.

Anyone know of anything else like these?

Isn't B&M a German outfit? Surely you can find a European distributor??

That bracket set is just for the studding and nuts to convert a fork crown bracket, it doesn't include the fork crown bracket.

Also the tubes aren't bar sized as they are just spacers to separate two headlights so they fit.

You can buy the same parts from a fastener supplier for a few .

SJS lists Busch and Muller on their site here.

Edit: damn the brand search didn't stick in the link, but just use the "search by brand"


The one that I had posted that PW sells is the "493GHPB" according to the B&M catalog. It's not currently listed on the SJS site, but if they're like most bike shops, they'll special order it for you.
