Mounting a battery pack to top tube or similar?
When I used my Lumi battery in a bag, it stayed in place without problem.
Could you wrap the top tube in a bit of old inner tube to get the battery to grip a bit better?
How big is the battery? I’ve got one for my spokeshirt light that fits un the stem (admittedly on my road bike) and I then secure it in place with some re-usable zip-ties just to be doubly sure.
You could always stick it in a bottle and whack it in a cage?Posted 4 years ago
Stem not an option it’s only 70mm and I mount my garmin on it so there are thick rubber straps underneath
It’s on a five so slightly kinked TT, but the mount that came with battery doesn’t seem to be too secure on mine, if I could find a neoprene type designed bag that velcros to the frame that would be perfect
It’s a normal sized battery pack it’s not massive but not small just normal sized I guessPosted 4 years ago
Smudge of this forum runs mtb batteries which supplies pouches, top bloke. Link below:Posted 4 years ago
Help! I’ve never had to mount a battery before on the frame as I’ve always run exposure lights however I’m gonna run my glow worm x2 on the bars this winter , and from what I’ve tried I cannot for the life of me to get it to secure on the TT properly without falling about or knocking side to side etc by it being strapped on
Can I get some form of neoprene carrier that clips on or fastens onto the frame more securely?
Don’t want it moving basically and making a racket, anybody got anything they can recommend?Posted 4 years ago
Should do, measurements are on the web page, if in doubt ask Smudge. I use the large one as run his largest 8 cell battery pack and it doesn’t move about one bit once fastened on nice and tight.
Plus you can feel good helping out a smaller UK business (1 bloke) rather than a large company. 😀Posted 4 years ago
Cheers ruscle appreciate the help
Ill defo have one off him if he thinks it will fit don’t see why not my battery is just a standard four cell big cube type shape so I’d imagine just standard will check out measurements but I’m sure it will fit glad to hear it doesn’t budge
