Potential silly lumenator battery mounting Q
So I picked this light up yesterday. Being my first ‘serious’ light with an external battery I wondered whether I am mounting it in the most secure way?
Using the clip and strap doesnt seem very secure on the top tube of my hard tail. I’m sure its probably just me being an ignoramus but how do you secure yours?Posted 5 years agopebblebeachMember
I have a couple of lights I use regulalry and the all mount on the frame or bars in a bag with a velcro strap. Never had one fall off but depending on your frame tubes they can slide along the tubd and start to rattle.
I stuck mine in a water bottle in a cage the other night though and its a much better mounting option – neat, waterproof and rattle free.Posted 5 years ago
I’m probably not explaining very well here but the lumenator battery has a velcro strap but that seems designed more to enclose the rubber battery and not for mounting.
My hard tail is a 456 so has quite a skinny top tube which probably isnt helping matters much.
Does anyone have pics of theirs mounted to the frame?Posted 5 years ago
Ditto jam bo. Get it on yer head, has such a good spread that there is not really any need for a light on the bars.
I potentially would for off road but I also plan to use it, albeit on its lowest setting, for my communte which is half on road and half through a park. Wouldn’t want to blind drivers with the helmet mountin.
Edit: @Trout – got the battery pack beside me now and was thinking the same idea as in your pic. Cheers 😳
Kind of renders the strap on the side a little pointless though doesn’t it?Posted 5 years agogetonyourbikeMember
I found that on both my hardtail and full sus the velcro will wrap round but the strap bottoms out before it really tightens and because of it, it moved. The way I’ve solved it is by wrappnig a dead inner tube round the top tube where the battery will sit to bulk it out and also to give it something to grip to. It seems to work, that’s for sure.Posted 5 years ago
