Any recommendations for a light that can be mounted to a fiberglass flag pole for my trike?


Thanks

Dave

Perhaps one of these ICE headrest adaptors would work for you. Then you could mount any light. You could probably make one out of a wood dowel of suitable diameter. Yet another reason to invest in a 3d printer,

I had another thought: Those non-cork plastic/rubber type wine corks might work if you drilled a hole to fit the pole. And it's a good excuse for some imbibing.

Duplicate post - see Electronics-lighting-gadgets

Since this same question was posted in the Electronics-lighting-gadget section you can see a much simpler answer https://www.bikeforums.net/electroni...lag-poles.html

BTW while ICE accessories are nicely designed, the prices are quite pricey. I can't imagine spending $48 for just the mount used to add a Mirrycle bike mirror to the trike.

I cut two scraps of gray PVC pipe about 6"-7" long and zip tied or used 'O' rings to attach them to the two neck rest supports on my trike: one for a small bag attachment and the other for my Garmin Varia radar blinky. I don't think attaching a light to the flag staff is the way to go. I use neon streamers, which are highly visible, rather than a flag. A roll of neon streamer material is inexpensive and available at most hardware stores.
