  • I'm going to try one of the Brompton fixings (as below) bottom attached to the mudguard mount and the top holes 50mm apart- hopefully will fill the gap between the top or my wheel and the bottom of my SQR mounted bag

  • I really think that is stuch a shit light placement.

  • Yeah i know. Too low. Its angled up and quite bright. But for my use London/kent it’s sufficient as an additional light to a flashing one at lowest batt setting.

    On the fixie i have the same light slightly higher, still i use it with a flashing light at lowest setting.

  • Ah I didnt realise it was yours, it wasnt on a turbo trainer.

  • Thats an old pic, it is now! (Actually!)

  • thanks for the inspo.

  • Done exactly this using the Brompton fitting mentioned upthread. Works a treat, needed a bit of bending to get the angle right. Zoom in here to see, can get a better photo tomorrow if you’d like.

  • Good to see in real Life that this can work! Saw one on eBay for £6 something with free delivery!

  • thanks! very helpful.

  • They do a few versions, rack mounted like the picture has side entry cable, maybe not ideal for dropout mounted. The 'seatpost' mounted type the cable comes out the back, but its quite a beefy rubber grommet on it, to prevent cable damage. I'm getting the latter, in the post my way just now.
    If you've got a full mudguard then you've got a few options of places to put it, get creative with bits of old stainless/alloy bracket and bolts!

  • cheers, i think i have a plan now. the side entry version on the way.

  • Epping forest post-work dynamo ride anyone? Not tonight, but soon.
