Sort of related to this post and while y'all are thinking about lights, I'm looking at options for mounting my front light. The bar bag obstructs a handlebar mount and the high-rise solutions are not something that I prefer. I have seen the custom mounts for the front of my Cosmos rack and that is under consideration (if I can make one elegant enough...) but what I think I would prefer is mounting the light to the head tube. That would enable me to reach the switch while riding and I think it would reduce the beating the light would take if mounted to the leading edge of the front rack.I'm not sure I understand how mounting on the headtube gets around the problem of the bar bag???
I've thought a stainless pipe clamp with a "shop built" mounting bracket would work but I was wondering if any of you have every done something like that or have seen other solutions. Ideas?
I'd like to mount a light on the front Surely rack but behind the front edge of the rack so it doesn't get whacked... Fabrication would be OK but I'd rather find an off the shelf solution. This as on my first major trip (3,142 miles) I had a custom sized Silca frame pump and it cracked at the pump head. It was a real problem trying to replace it while on the road... that experience led me to stick with readily available accessories and components!
