    Headlight for road bike with 1.25" bar?

    Hey guys!

    I just picked up my Synapse 3 Carbon the other day and didn't think about my headlight not fitting on the bar . There's enough room on the bar to mount it but the mount isn't anywhere near large enough to put it on the bar.

    Any suggestions on a good headlight that will fit on a 1.25" bar? For now I'm going to put the light on my helmet since it has a helmet mount but I'd really like a QR style high quality light for the bike for night riding. I'm not racing so I'm not overly concerned about weight although I would like a higher performance light with a lighter weight if possible .

    So I feel ********... My NiteRider Lumina 700 is specced to go up to 31.8mm and my bars are 31.75mm. I just had to really push on the latch/screw to get it over the lip but it's on there now and on there good .

    Crisis averted.

    I browsed the sections and somehow overlooked that one. I'll report this thread so a mod can move it to the appropriate location and I won't make that mistake again .

    Thanks!

    That's pretty cool. I have my garmin on the stem and my light on the bars next to the stem. I didn't think it would open wide enough to mount but it did .
