Wanted: One or two bases (little feet things) that screw into bottom of
Lumicycle halogen lamps to take cable ties.

I'm willing to either pay or swap for a Lumicycle halogen Quick Release
bracket. I also have a second QR if you'd like to buy one in addition.

Please email p[at]biggs[dot]tc with what you have and what you want.

cheers

I presume from this that you've (a) asked lumicycle already and/or (b)
bought the quick release and found them totally useless?

Just interested from another lumi owner.

(Personally, I've found their service excellent, and would be surprised they
don't have some of these availalbe as spares).

Not yet. I won't bother them or spend any more than I need to if I can do
a straight swap with a user who'd like "upgrade" to QRs. Don't put them
off! :)

In fact I own both a pair of cable tie bases and a pair of QRs. The QRs
work OK but I prefer the minimal bulk & weight of cable ties. I want
another cable tie thingie because I'm getting another lamp -- not a Lumi
but a homemade MR16 job with a QR.

I'd happily swap. I have one zip-tie mounted light

What's wrong with them? I have two and they work fine.

My experiences of the Lumicycle quick releases is that they're extremely
good - they work very well for me, both on my mountain bikes and on my
road bike.

I dunno, it was an implied answer. I have heard that most people just prefer
the zip tie despite them looking flimsy. Certainly i've found the zip tie
solution more than adequate.
