You mean the Twofish Lockblocks? There are numerous reviews on them already. The short story: they're really versatile, durable, and great quality - recommended.

If you're talking about something else, nevermindme. :)

Yeah the twofish holders are nice.. I'm using one with a L2D, works like a charm :)

I think you could use any light with that diameter if it has enough throw

I use it with an L1D CE on my Specialized Tricross. Works great! Nice and stable, especially in the one-cell format, though I imagine the two-cell is pretty stable too.

Some tips:
-Center the lights center of mass in the LockBlock.
-It more stable below the bars but its usually hard to route that way.
-I find larger lights vibrate more. I'd say the max size is a 4AA like the Pro Poly.

Does anyone have a better picture of this or a link to one on the forum?

How does it mount to the handlebar? I have a 31.8mm oversized bar, so I want to make sure it fits.

Thanks.

The straps fit up to a C-sized Mag tube. Your "oversized" handlebars shouldn't be a problem.

Here's a pic for you:

Yeah what green said :p

These mounts are so awesome. I've had a set since 1999 and the rubber
is very flexible and quality TPE (Kraton). I spoke with the guy who
invented it. He told me he build a complete green house using these
lock blocks and PVC pipes! LOL.

Anyway, I've ordered enough of these to be in stock for the next 5 years. :D
They're priced reasonably and competitively. Margins are small and I
treat this item more as a service than a profit product :)

I got a little crazy and mounted five p3d's on my bike helmet:

If you buy the three pack designed for a u-lock at a bike shop you get two with shorter straps and one with a longer strap.

The ones with the shorter straps are only good for lights 7/8" diameter and smaller, down to Arc AAA sized (pretty much all AA lights and some but not all CR123). The longer strap won't work on a Arc AAA, but will work with bigger lights and works great with 1" diameter lights and maybe up to a C cell at most.

EDIT** I expect the ones from 4 sevens may only be long strap models if he is buying in bulk, but I'm not sure.

Hey, 4 sevens. If you could squeeze 2 more on you could compete with the Lupine at 1/3 the cost :D

Whoa! Whats in the Lupine?

I sent some proto P3D Q5's to chevrofreak and he measured 190 lumens
out the front (40% increase). Five those should bring it to 950 lumens! LOL

Make sure the CR123A of those P3D don't blow! It looks like the helmet version of the dynamite vest/belt, but with light. ;)

4-7, it seems to me like Lupine and Dinotte are using emitter specs, not real output. I take their numbers with a chunk of salt.
