Fittings update: Busch and Muller Toplight

In my previous blog entry I showed pictures of the home-made bracket for the Busch and Muller Toplight. The idea was to fix this rear dynamo light to the Carradice Bagman rack and enable me to mount the light centrally.

Unfortunately the bracket - a cut-up bidon - wasn't sturdy enough and the unit's centre of gravity kept pulling the bracket round causing the rear light to shine on the ground. A fellow audaxer and member of the 'yet another cycling forum' community got in touch and sent me some p-clips.

These clips have clamped securely round the smooth metal of the bagman and so far are holding the light perfectly aligned and facing following traffic.

Thanks to Nick for sending me these clips - very much appreciated.
