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.
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.
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.
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!
