New Mounts from Ortlieb for Accessories - Handlebar Bag Mount
Ortlieb have come out with an accessory mount which is attached to mounts on the Ultimate 6 Handlebar Bag mount. I guess another option for mounting lights and/or computers when using a handlebar bag. I know that in my case with the Surly Long Haul Trucker and my Ultimate 5 handlebar bag my options mounting extra lights is limited.

Excellent. Now I can bring my flat panel TV.

Handle bar bag mount number 6 is doing a feature add on like Klick Fix already offers..

with the added widgetry of a 2 height round place mount option ..

Will the "6" bracket accept my "5" bag? I didn't see any compatibility specs on the Ortlieb site.

Wow. I can't imagine riding around with stuff sticking up like that. No aero tuck, that's for sure! ;)

If it's just about lights, I'd rather mount them down low. My favorite spot is for the light to be just above the front wheel, and generally lower is better because it shows you the contours of the potholes better. I forget who makes them, but there are even mounts for lights that attach at the skewer, not to mention the nobs that attach to the fork. I think it's probably relatively few setups that block ALL of those places to put a headlight.

But hey, more possible ways to mount more stuff is a good thing. :)
