Cheapest spare mount for L&M Arc HID light?

Has anyone here bought a spare mount for their L&M Arc HID light so they can easily transfer it between bikes? I haven't found anything that gets much below $30 including shipping.

I have a mount for a Vega that I have no use for anymore. If it would work, I'd gladly sell it to you for $10. I'm not sure if the Arc and Vega use the same mount, although they certainly look the same. You might want to email L&M to check.

Wait, you paid over $300 for a light and you want the cheapest mount? ehh? why not get the mount that L&M sells and be done with it!

It is the same mount. I use the same one with my Arc and my Vega.

Spicer - $19.45 + unknown shipping

AEBike - $18.99 + $7.50 shipping

I've been putting off ordering a few of these. I'm worried though that if I keep switching mine between bikes it'll eventually strip out.

I thought it was rediculous to pay $5something for extra superflash mounts. $20 for one of these seems really excessive.

Ok, this is just weird. I was 5 seconds away from positing a thread about getting a spare mount for my L&M Arc. I stopped by the LBS and they want $25 for the handlebar mount. I know the light is expensive (even more so for the Li-Ion Ultra) but that's past my threshold for paying for a piece of plastic and a screw.

So, I'm hoping to find someone willing to trade their extra handlebar mount for my extra helmet mount. Any takers?

Ahahahaha... I have 2 l&m lights, 3 bar mounts, 2 helmet mounts, and it's all mine!!

BTW I haven't tried riding with it but if you put like, a 1/8" thick piece of flat rubber on top of the cateye mount, the L&M slides right on.
