Would P-clips such as these solve your problem https://www.spacycles.co.uk/m5b0s215...TORTEC-P-Clips ?

I had to shim a little bit due to slight diameter difference. I would think that the flanges could be rotated and the piece that holds the block could be rotated.,

Off topic but what pig nose adapter is that on your Zizzo? I have the Zizzo branded version on my Liberté and it has only 1 attachment point at the bottom of the head tube, limiting me to about 5# carrying limit. How much can you carry? Thanks.

Back to Birdy talk - I've always admired the look and engineering of those bikes and would love to try one someday...

Its H&H. It says it on there in the picture, but it is small. I believe it would fail by the two small screws in the upper flange pulling out or snapping. They say it is good for 8Kg. I have likely overloaded mine a time or two.

You could mount your Zizzo at the top of the head tube. I think that would be better. Not sure why Zizzo shows it mounted below. If you were going to make a funky one legged support, you might as well take advantage of the fact it has only one leg.
