Now, /if/ that will fit on a Brom without interfering with the bag
and/or requiring highly contrived mounting not to do so, they may well
have a sale in the works...

Does the SON have a preferred rotation direction that might prevent that?
(Of course you could just run two lights, one each side, off a single hub.)

Thanks Marten, out with the measure, though it looks like I've got a

The SON's with a pressfit housing ( first model with black centerring,
XS and R) can be used either way
