Admittedly, most of the hacks featured on this site are low tech. There is nothing wrong with low tech, heck, as long as the hack gets the job done count it a success. A couple of readers alerted me to a decidedly high tech solution to a light mounting issues on some drop bars complicated by cable placement. Reader jackflap wrote:
The hacker couldn't fit his light-clamp on his handlebars because the brake cables were in the way. So he used a 3D printer to create a reversed-clamp which would fit. Very cool use of 3D printing.

Any questions should most definitely go to the comment section of Thorwil's site because this high tech hack is bit beyond my low tech mind.
