    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!

    been looking.. lockblock works ok but due to the heavier weight you do get more bouncing..

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