Rack mounting extender/standoff

Post by monkeytennis »

Hi all, so I am wanting to mount a reflector onto my rack mount hole but need it extended slightly. Is there a extended standoff on the market anywhere that anyone knows of?

I would see what SJSC have got. There might be a Cateye product that does what you want.
I should coco.

I maybe didn't explain it very well! I don't have a rack. I want to use the rack mounting holes near chainstay to mount a light as when I have my bag attached to my klickfix seatpost mount my under saddle light will be covered. But due to the position of gear cables I can't get the light to fix there. What I want is something to work as a spacer or extender to allow me to use it. Any ideas?

Have a look at Cateye's offerings - they do all sorts of brackets and lights that you can buy separately. I have seen someone with two TL-LD610 mounted, one on each seatstay.

The lights were mounted vertically, and used different brackets to the one in the link, maybe something like the SP MODEL Flex Tight Bracket.

I think you can get the actual light holder bit separately, which you could then attach to your rack mounts with suitable spacers.

You mean the rack mount just above where a caliper rear brake normally sits? I think you may be able to use a front light bracket (meant to bolt to the fork crown) but with the (T or L shaped) plastic lamp mount bolted into it, suitable for your rear light.

something like this

£2.10

should work provided your rear light isn't too heavy.
