Mounting a Busch & Muller Light on a SWB - Options?

I am planning to setup a Bacchetta Giro 20 with a dynamo and will fit my Busch & Mueller Lumotec IQ Cyo Senso Plus or purchase a new Luxos U.

Anyway I am aware of the foot flash problem and that Bacchetta do sell the One Arm Bandit mount to address this issue. My issue is mounting a Busch & Mueller light on the OAB or is there other options?

Hence this post seeking feedback on what others have done.

I am also aware of the Evo D Handlebar light mount and the Schmidt Handlebar Fitting Dynamo Headlamp Bracket which I am guessing could be used with the OAB. Anyone have experience of this approach?

Thanks
Andrew

I have my CYO clamped directly above the front derailleur on my V-rex. Foot flash has not bothered me.

Okay. What sort of mount did you use?

Thanks

It comes with a brake mount. I use some clamp I had to fasten the brake mount directly to the tubing. I think it was originally a water bottle cage clamp.
