L like how simple and ingenious this is. No need for specialized bike lights. I'm going to use this one.

I do the same thing mounting my front lights on the handlebars, quick, cheap and really useful hack


I added two little torch, more little than these, but I used velcro for a better fixing. Nice job !

For my helmet light I used a standard $15 bike light, which has a sort of rail that slides into the bike mount. I drilled a hole through the rail then zip-tied it to the helmet. Very easy.


@ Stefano I tried that too, but couldn't get them to stay, maybe these lights were too big or the velcro I used was too light-weight. It was my first choice because of easy on/off. =)


Brilliant in its simplicity. Bravo!


Wow - could have used this on the Hiawatha Trail in Idaho last summer...

This hack was super useful. I commute daily (and nightly), and after getting scared sh*tless a couple times by bad drivers, tried this out. Super awesome, super cheap, and pretty dang safe. Thanks for the idea Matt... Oh and I was able to find glow in the dark flashlights (pack of 2) for $4 at CVS. Bomb deal if you ask me.
