    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    This holds a light on a bike's handlebar nicely. There's a little bit of bounce on rough surfaces, but the light stays where it should be and keeps pointing in the right direction - it's just the beam spreads up and down a bit.

    Cons:

    A little fiddly to get the tension right on the light holder.

    The hooks that hold the rubber strap look a bit thin, but they're holding up well so far with a few bumpy rides.

    You may need a bit of old inner tube to shim out your light.

    OtherThoughts:

    If you use the inner rubber bars it holds SKU 13095 very nicely. It may work better for you if you put a bit of old inner tube on the handlebars.

    Bottomline:

    For road use and relatively smooth offroad I'd have no hesitation in recommending this. For really bumpy mountain biking it may be a bit wobbly - mine hasn't caused any problems yet!
