Recumbent Rear Light Post Mount
Recumbents often don’t have good places to mount them, especially if the light was designed to go on a vertical tube-like an upright bike seat tube. How do you create a vertically oriented tube on the back of a recumbent?
With this! This mount attaches to almost any tube in almost any orientation and allows you to create a vertically oriented tube sticking up from it. The locking swiveling clamp system is super simple and holds really well. Simply snap the clamp over the tube you want to attach to, swivel things around until they are lined up the way you like, and tighten the bolt. Attach your light and away you go!
- Mounts use modified Cateye brand band clamps. Cateye clamps are very strong and available in a wide range of sizes. We modify the clamps to add a special bushing to allow them to be joined back to back. Serrations on the clamps lock them to each other. Choose the size of a clamp that matches the size of the tube where you want to attach it. The tube where you put the light is 4 inches long and 7/8 inches in diameter, so any bike light will fit.
- Clamps available for attaching to tubes from 1/4 inch to 1-1/4 inch (6mm to 31.8mm). Clamps are fine-tuned by adjusting the length of the provided shim. Special 1 inch OD rubber shims are provided for tubes under 1/2 inch.
- The tube where the light is attached is 7/8 inch (22.2mm) OD and 4 inches (100mm) long. The tube is black powder-coated aluminum.
- Fits nearly any bike or trike, upright or recumbent.
