  • Great Mount for the Money

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

    Pros:

    Used it mountain biking with a VB-16 flashlight. It seemed to hold the light in place just fine for 10 miles of night trail riding.

    Cons:

    no positive retention feature for light. a very heavy bump could dislodge the flashlight.

    Plastic parts - may not last very long due to long term creep.

    Not sure if plastic grip will relax over time if flashlight left in place, thus reducing clamp load. A bolt on the top would help, too.

    OtherThoughts:

    Use a rubberband around the flashlight/handlebars to help secure the flashlight in case of large bumps.

    Bottomline:

    for $2, it's a great all-purpose mount for a flashlight.
