DIY Light Mount

Brad Quartuccio

There are a number of reasons you may wish to mount your light somewhere other than your handlebar. Perhaps you want to save space for other accessories, or use a handlebar bag that interferes with the beam, or want to place it lower to shine across the roadway at a shallower angle. With a scrap piece of 1 1/8” steerer tube and a headset start nut you can fashion a custom mount that will fit on most any rack or fender mount out there with a long enough matching bolt. The diameter of the steerer is 28.6 mm, right between the two most common bar clamp sizes, meaning any universal fit light will fit snug and the scrap can easily be trimmed to length to fit your particular light model or clearance needs.
