    Picture of my Fenix light rack mount setup

    Figured out a great way to mount my Fenix lights. This is perfect if you have lots of space on your front rack.

    I found some foam "tubes" at a local surplus store. Then I slit the bottoms so they would fit around the bars. Then I built up the rear by wrapping a couple pieces of old tire tube around one of the beams so the lights would be angled slightly down. Then I used blue electrical tape to tape them down. Blue tape works best. They are secured by two O-rings per flashlight, with an additional large O-ring for redundancy because yes, I know, the Space Shuttle blew up because of an O-ring failure. They are still adjustable by adding shims if you need to. Popsicle stick or something, little twig maybe, works fine.

    Nice setup. How do the lights look at that level?

    Fantastic. The brightest darn two little dots I've ever seen in my life. They're like automobile lights!

    Very nice. Would you mind saying where you got the lights and how much they cost? Thanks

    You can also put them under if you need the space on top for something.

    Here are some pictures taken with a better camera. I can't figure out how to get a good nighttime shot so if anyone has any tips please let me know. The lights are pointed pretty low in the one early morning shot.

    These are Fenix L2D Premium flashlights with a claimed maximum output of 180 lumens on turbo mode. They were $62.50 each and I got an 8% discount using coupon code cpf8.

    I too use Fenix L2D as a bicycle headlight and can attest to that model's brightness. It is very nice to have a high-quality, long burning flashlight that uses only 2 AA batteries. On bright the light runs for over 2 hours, on low it burns for 50+ hours. If you camp, this light is great and if used the the diffuser it serves well as a general area light too.

    Does anyone know what the alkaline burn time is for a Fenix L2D in STROBE mode?
