Bike Lights

Hi I've just bought a flashlight. The acebeam x80 (49mm diameter) 25k lumens flashlight and im now looking for a flashlight mount so that I can attach it to my bicycle.

I know it's illegal but im off-roading quite a lot in the woods and I really need a solution to put this thing on my handlebar. I will take it off again when I get onto the cycleway and use "regular" bike lights.

Where can I find that? I have a 3d printer as well.

I can't tell from the site but are there multiple sizes available or does the one cover a certain range of sizes?

Edit: I just saw for AA flashlights.

The website may be poorly designed but the TwoFish mounting blocks are good. I use 'em for my Light & Motion Urban lights after the original mounts cracked. No problems.

When would you need 25,000 lumens? Are you trying to burn holes in the trees? I know some ex-24h downhill racers who said 2000 lumen lights were a bit bright. Unless the light is dimmable I wouldn't want to use that. Plus I want a good beam pattern so I am not casting a ton of shadows and such that could make it harder to see.

With a light that bright, your eyes would get used to that level of light and then you wouldn't be able to see anything outside the beam. This is why I try to get by on the dimmest light I can use reasonably. More isn't always better.
