Attach a light to the back of a bike rack?

Postby entershikari » Thu Oct 04, 2012 15:17 pm

I have a tubus rack (can't remember which one) on my winter bike and it has a flat vertical piece of metal at the back which looks like it’s there to attach a light to… my question is, what like can I buy that can be securely attached to it?

I'e got a Cateye 1100 mounted to a slim metal plate on the back of my winter bike using the belt clip. It is fairly secure although it has been jolted off a couple of times when I've hit big potholes.

This works with the great value Smart rear lights like the 1/2 watt and the Lunar R2 1 watt. They are about the best "bang per buck" rear lights.
