The bar bag obstructs a handlebar mount and the high-rise solutions are not something that I prefer.

I have drop bars. I mount my front lights at the front of the "U" towards the inside, between the bar and the bag. I use one light on each side.

Nice installation Old Guy. Great idea! I'm trying to keep a single light so I'll mount one and take it for a ride this week.

Look at the website Peter White Cyclery. He sells dyno lights as well as battery. He also has lots of mounting otptions.

Good Evening All,

Late follow-up to this thread (specifically the front mount for a headlight). I tinkered together a drop mount for my NR 750. The idea came from Ortlieb's utility mount that works with their handlebar bag mount. Their mount wasn't long enough to use in the "drop" position and I did not want anything extending above the bar bag. I used some 1/2" carbon fiber tubing, a couple of pieces of old ski pole, a few fittings, epoxy, and viola! I also used the clip portion of the NiteRider helmet mount. Overall the mount is lighter than the NiteRider handlebar mount and it has held up well through about 500 miles of test riding. The light is reachable while riding and is a good height to throw an effective light pattern down the road. Looking forward to my tour! Hopefully the picture link will work.

I don't know about a headlight, but it sounds like you need one of these $5 brackets for your tail light.

I don't recommend this bracket. Have one, minus the taillight; fell out several times. Last time couldn't find the light. While the light could be popped in and out of the bracket without tools, it required a screwdriver to change batteries. What thinking!

The Tubus racks accept http://www.bumm.de/produkte/batterie-ruecklicht.html taillights. Perter White and Harris cyclery sell some of those shown.
