Nice. I did a back based on the same lamp:


I mounted into an 70's era bottle holder designed to mount to handlebars.

The switch on this lamp is actually magnetic, with a magnet in the handle closing a circuit in the body, so I discarded the handle and led the two wires in the circuit into the little compartment where the charge plug is. I put a momentary switch in there so closing the compartment all the way powers the light. Unscrewing it a little turns the light off.

That lamp is crazy bright. I would use it for riding down pitch black country trails and would get blind spots. Being a spotlight, it has a strong focus.

Sweet idea! I almost killed myself last year biking at night in the country side on a dirt road... wish I had that installed then!


As matt said it is very important to make sure this hack is pointed accuratelly. We don't want to blind the other drivers, just be seen. I'm pretty sure you can get pulled over too if you have this pointed too high up and are blinding drivers. Not to mention we don't like it when they put our lives in danger and blinding a driver is in fact putting their life in danger so don't do it to them.
