Oversize 31.8mm handlebar mount for P7 Flashlight

Hi,

I was wondering what options are out there for a P7-style flashlight mounted on 31.8mm oversize handlebars. The only mount I've seen that works for 31.8 bars are the Twofish velcro mounts but they don't look very strudy.

I have been using this http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8274 for my 26mm bars with excellent results but they wont fit the oversized bars.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I use a Two Fish Cyclopblock, which is a larger and more stable version of the Lockblock. It works just fine for me.

I have been using twofish blocks for 3 years now.. No issues with durability or strength.. I have used up a 2-cell flashlights with no problems.. A single/double cell P7 is not an issue.. Just pull the velcro tight and you are fine..

Thanks for the input, I'm gonna give the Twofish a try. What's the difference between the flashlight and "Cycloblock" versions?

The Cycloblock is for larger diameter lights. The Lockblocks is for AA lights.
