    Default lights on bikes

    Hi folks,

    I'm new to this site, but I'm loving every post I read. Who'd have thought that there were more people like me with an unexplainable attraction to lights!

    Other than using a flashlight around the house, I use it primarily when I go cycling at night or super early in the mornings. Anyone else here use their lights the same way? I use a fenix bike mount with my quark 2AA but it takes up a lot of real estate on the handle bars. Even worse, it rattles (the mount not the light) and I absolutely hate that.

    I'd post a picture of my setup, but I'm at work now. Will try to do that later.

    Say what you will about my bike's looks, but it runs rattle free and smooth as butter.
    Here's my hose clamp setup:

    absolutely no shame at all in a setup like this! I think i will give your setup a try. i gotta ask though, what's the white stuff that you've got on the top ring? some kind of rubber putty?

    here's a picture of my current setup as promised. quite crowded my handlebars.

    It's a silicone clay called sugru. Sugru can (as far as I'm aware) only be ordered online. It is very resilient to high and low temperatures.
    I put it there to avoid scratching my Quark, but other substances/materials may also work.
