Does a good job – Universal Bicycle Swivel Mount for Flashlights and Lasers (1.7~3.0cm Flexible Diameter) Reviews

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.
Other:
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!
