Are there any creative uses for old-school lamp bosses on forks? Seems a it pointless to mount a dummy handlebar section to mount a light on when it could just go on the bars.
isn't that used for https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/George-Gale-Co-HSB-Bitter-Beer-Pump-Clip-New-Mint-Condition/202436346915?hash=item2f22258423:g:-3sAAOSw6W9bkZJR these days?
Mounting the front light further away from your line of sight makes it easier to interpret the road surface? (Depth perception, visible shadows etc.)
This only applies if you need the light to see by - if you want to be seen, then handlebar height is probably better.
I'm sure this came up in discussion a few years ago, but I can't find it now. Part of it was to do with left or right fork - illuminating the edge of the road or oncoming traffic - with no clear conclusions...
Machine guns for that bimmer driver you were complaining about.
