    Fenix LD 20 - Easy to mount as a bike light?

    I'm going to buy this flash light - for around the house - but do want to know if it had a tube that will mount easily on a bike - are there specific accessories?

    This is how I attach one to the handle bars and one to my helmet. I like seeing everything at night.

    BTW, its on old inner tube.

    I've used the Fenix bike mount for my L2D - it sucks.

    Then I replaced it with a TwoFish LockBlock, and have been extremely happy. :-)

    Second on the LockBlock. I used to have a road bike with a stem parallel to the ground, and used a block with the top and bottom oriented the same way. It freed up lots of space on my handlebars. Then I got a bike with a not-parallel stem, and got a LockBlock that's angled 90 degrees. I have to be more careful about tightening it down/aiming it, but it still works very well.

    It was ratcheting, so it was a pain to point in just the right direction. Also, it couldn't be adjusted up and down easily without a lot of fiddling. Finally, since it's hard plastic with no shock absorption, it bounced all over when the bike was moving.

    The original fenix mount was terrible - the one they sell now is very solid.. You only need a mount like this if you use a heavy light.. The new fenix mount will not work with 31.8 handlebars..

    For the cheapos like me, here is an alternative..

    Here is the Two Fish mount, off Amazon for $7 to $8, maybe shipping too.



    Here are the Two Fish COPIES/KNOCK OFFS, I have been using for $2.25 each..Discounted when you order more than one. I just re-ordered 5 for $10.53 with free shipping.



    They work perfectly.. even rigged one up to my helmet..


    Here is one I mounted on my beater bike. That is a fat 26650 flashlight too. Much thicker in dia that most flashlights. The two fish copy handled it easily..

    TwoFish flashlight holder...+1.
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.
