Check out Minoura's accessories. There are a number of quick releases, and many of them are bolted together in a way that you should be able to disassemble and mount your light. The only downside is that since the whole thing detaches, you'll have to redo the aim each time you mount it.
Obviously, you've already found it.

That's just too expensive for something like that, IMO.
Unless there is something there I am not seeing.. That's just a handlebar mount, right?
Something like this would work too, although its not removable.

Yes, that allows you to mount your light to the handlebars. The Inofix would allow you to mount to the stem, if you have a threadless stem.
Either way, if you remove your light every time you lock up, you lose the convience factor of a dyno light set-up. The trade off for going battery free is to basically mount the light(s), aim to desired effect, and forget about them. If you're worried about theft, then mount the light and use some kind of exotic screw/bolt head or fill in the screw head with something that you can dig out later with some effort.
Out of curiousity, are you planning on using a hub or sidewall generator? If you run a wired tail light with a hub, then you'll also need to get that Isoguard circuit. Sidewall generator doesn't require that circuit.
Sidewall generator, as it doesn't make sense to spend more given how infrequently I ride at night. And yes, I am definitely worried about theft. Even though I don't live in the city, things do get stolen around here sometimes.
I wouldn't be surprised if the mounts for some other brand work with the inoled, I just have to find a good one. Its a nice light.
Have a look at these: http://classifieds.mtbr.com/showprod...-mounts&cat=27
My DiNotte 600L came with that mount. The headlight mounts on a shoe that can be slid onto the bar mount. It'd require a little adaptation, I'm sure, but it's a good mount.
Thank you for that link.. thanks a lot.. lots there thats useful.
My light basically takes a M6 20mm bolt.. and the holder is 8mm wide.. I suspect that there is a mount out there that would fit - it seems like it would be a common size..
I just need to do more looking..

Some spacers would fill the gap, just thick washers basically. I forgot to mention another feature of that mount (maybe you've already discovered it) but the entire shoe can be swivelled about 15° to the left or right on the base. They're REALLY nice mounts. There are even offset versions if you want to have the light right on the bike's centerline: http://www.batteryspace.com/handleba...ikelights.aspx
Also, as you can see, the entire mount has a quick-release cam. And there are two reducer shims that can be removed to convert it to 31.8mm bars.
These look like they might work well.. maybe with some washers.. Thank you for that link.

more Kludgie ..
I got a 2_Fish Rubber block and 2 velcro straps,
there are parallel .. I Use it to keep my frame pump in front of my seat tube..
and a crossways one , It works to put a mini 'maglight' on my handlebar. the backup.
I'm thinking.. putting a piece of dowel or, whatever round,
with your headlight mount on it , with a screw ,
then You can grip it with 1 velcro buckle ,
fit the thing on with the other..
these use pulley like strap ends and you can get them pretty tight.
and some sticky back stuff to help make a tacky mounting place.
and Zip off a strap, un plug the wires and you are good to go.

What about using some anti-theft screws to bolt it on?
