    Do you have a close-up and some details on the bracket you are using to hold the LED Flashlight?

    You can hold any torch (flashlight) like a maglite or whatever to your bars with a rubber drive-belt from a washing machine or even just a heavy duty rubber band. Really simple. Loop it over one end of the torch, under the bars and over the front. Done.

    I think you have me beat for total lumens, but I'm pretty pleased how small these Dinotte lights are and how easy the move from bike to bike...

    Thanks, I was going to ask this same question. Now here's how I always make very strong rubber bands that don't deteriorate with age or sun, at least not for a long time: cut auto or bike inner tubes into strips and tie them off with a square not to the appropriate length and width. I use them for all sorts of things.
