Notice the headlight is mounted off-center in this photo. Actually, the same is true in most on DiNotte’s pictures of their headlight mounts. I prefer my light be centered. How to do that?
I used a DiNotte B4 [28.6-31.8 mm] Handlebar Mount to go on the handlebar stem. To it I attached a modified Terracycle Accessory Mount to hold the light. In reality, this places a "short" handlebar in front of the handlebar and allows for center placement of the light.
As done, it will nicely integrates the light, bars, and Topeak TourGuide Bag and yields a professional, finished look. Well, i like it anyway. Now, given this is to be a multi-use light, the question is how will I mount it on my other cycles that I’ll ride at night. I will use a similar setup for my Trek Project One [until it becomes a donor bike for a Silvio Cruzbike]. I’ll have to design a bracket for my Catrike 700 that places the light forward of my [awaiting modification Mueller Windwrap XT Fairing—now at the Catrike Factory]. I will also find a placement location for mounting when the fairing is not installed. For now, here’s what I have done for my RANS Citi [Faye] Crank Forward.
Have I ever said how much I enjoy riding my Citi single-speed bike?
