bike light mount
 
I've got from fenix 2xPD20 and one of their bike light mount. The one they say is german technology but it was very disappointing. Indeed you ca rotate it in two plans but it is very flimsy. Basically after fixed on the handlebar the top part is somehow loose. Anybody can recommend me a good preferably small print bike light mount?

For a light that size, you only need the Twofish Lockblock.. Easy to mount and will handle that light with ease.. Do not use the fenix mount for that light..

Two more options.....

two interlocking hose clamps. Just run one through the other and tighten

OR...

two conduit clamps assembled like this....

Why would you want to spend money on these things? They are too big and ugly.

For the cheap win...

best and CHEAPEST idea out

I just use an old strip of inner tube as a rubber band. I was out last night using an LD20 with a road bike and drop bars, worked perfectly, let me point it around at the ditch along the road, look up at street signs etc. Always snaps back into nearly perfect "head on" position.

I don't get it. No one should have to buy a light mount for a tactical flashlight.

PS I have the "2-fish" mount as well and its OK, but isn't nearly as flexible as my home made rubber band......

I've tried the rubber tube trick but prefer the TwoFish light block for small lights like the PD30 referenced above or my LD10 (and possibly a Zebralight SC51 in the very near future once it is released). While you can leave either the self-made rubber strip or a TwoFish block mounted on your bars permanently, the TwoFish is somewhat less conspicuous when empty.

Either approach may be problematic if you have swept back bars and can't mount the light parallel to front wheel's line of travel.
