There are a nice seletion of fixing brackets from sjs. Amongst those are several stem mounted brackets, I neraly went for one of those but chose handle bar as I had the space and could easily remove onto another bike in minutes if needed.

The selection they have for various makes of light may give people some ideas for fixing up a light in several ways.

It's clamped to the steerer, taking the place of a spacer, and there's no way it's rotating without some very serious provocation.


This looks good, but the description on Evans website is a bit confusing. Do you have a piccy?


I'm fascinated by Evans' comment about cluttered handlebars. I have absolutely no idea what they mean.

The bracket is buried somewhere in here:

I've adjusted the bracket to a fairly extreme angle so I can still mount my camera above it.
