Help me STW, I need to bodge something…..
OK, I want to mount one of these
on the handlebar of my Brompton, but there doesn’t seem to be a suitable mount for these (or at least I haven’t found one) yet.
Ideally it would be permanently mounted and the clamp should be a split ring type affair so I don’t have to remove everything from the bars. I don’t mind knocking up a final bracket for the lamp itself out of aluminium, if needed.
What can you lot come up with for a clamp?

Probably didn’t make myself clear. It’s already in the ‘stock’ position on the Brompton, i.e. just below the luggage block. I want it on the bars for greater visibility (ride a lot in London traffic). P-Clip won’t work as the tabs will be in the wrong orientationPosted 4 years agoCraigWMember
This Riese and Muller / SON handlebar bracket: http://www.bike24.com/p224711.html
Or from SJS: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/schmidt-handlebar-fitting-dynamo-headlamp-bracket-prod9884/
I use it for a B&M dynamo light on my handlebars, works fine.Posted 4 years agoprojectMember
Get a front reflector the sort they put on the bars wheen they sell a bike, remove reflector and use the bolt to hold lamp.Posted 4 years ago
Hmm, not sure about the jubilee clip, but I do have some in the house.
I reckon this would do the job, but £20 for a mount?!! 😯
Alternatively, I might be able to bodge a bracket to fix on top of a hope clamp….Posted 4 years ago
All you need to add to that hope mount is two small flats with a pair of holes each.Posted 4 years ago
Remove the bolt from the light, put plates in its place, add bolt to angled piece of hope mount et voila!
ACTUALLY! You could replicate the bends around the existing bolt and use to fix to hope mounts angle pieceandylMember

with a large penny washer or two either side of the metal hoop on the light and a longer bolt.Posted 4 years ago
