Handlebar bag/ headlight question
I am looking for a handlebar bag. Topeak makes some nice ones but it looks like they stand pretty high above the handlebar which would block the headlight.
2 things...............are there lights that could mount below the bag.....or.....are there handlebar bags out there that mount lower down?
I fitted 2 stems, stacked , one for my bag mount, is beneath the handle bar.
then I fit my light mount on the fork crown. it is below the bag..
mine is wired to a front hub generator.
there are ways to mount what is a handlebar mount light, elsewhere,
via a tube that you can screw on with a 5mm bolt to fork bosses .
and there are ones to replace the QR axle nut, too.
a modified front rack is another place to mount lights.
The klickfix system of mounting bags has a thing you can buy that goes on their mount where you can mount lights and computer.
Velofred sells the mounts. It works on several different manufacturers bags.
I got a couple of these things when Nashbar had them on sale:
They mount down on your fork, and I could put headlights on them. I don't think they're supposed to be used on carbon forks, though.
Now, I've got a hub generator light, but it's a skewer-mounted light, so it's also down low.
