best mount for 26650 flashlight -

I have been using some of the newer 26650 flashlight and just love them. I have been using the tried and true lockblocks but since the lights are much heavier than the 18650 models, you do get some bouncing on rougher roads.. Has anyone found a pretty stable mount for the 26650 lights, I'm also using 31.8 handlebars..

I use the lockblocks for 18650 flashlights until I tried one of the rubber U mounts that cost $2.50 which I love. Unfortunately, I don't think they make them in larger diameters for 28650 lights. One of the main reasons I have stayed with my KD C8 on the bars. If someone has a source for 26650 universal U mount, please let us know!

Twofish also has the larger cycloblocks that are intended to hold lights up to 1.5in in diameter.
