Fabric Lumaray.

You've uncovered a potential gem! Thanks for sharing. Wished it had more operating life, but... Trying to place my order.

Would be ideal if someone made a double-sided out front mount... I'm off to re-read our marathon post on the subject now.
I think Garmin has it? Vaira front light has the quarter turn mechanism... also Edge 1030 external battery pack???

Yes, Martyn @ Raceware Direct got me sorted perfectly.

He makes a double-sided mount for Garmin's twisty connection. He said that Garmins and Vaira use the same twisty bit.

Now the trick is getting my hands on Fabric's Lumaray. Seems nobody in the USA has one... and European sellers have been instructed not to ship to the USA.

Dunno 30 lumen is on the low side. Even in the video it seems kinda weak. Ok if you just wanna be "legal". As for a piece of safety equipment I don't think so.
Agreed, but it's ~5 lumen better than my wee Knog so I've got that going for me... which is nice.

Got my new double-Garmin mount. That was the easy part. Getting the Fabric Lumaray is proving to be more difficult. Seems it won't be available in the States until March... hopefully I won't have an awesome "out front mount" for a vaporware light. :lol:

This amount is 28g whereas my "std" single RWD Garmin mount is 15g. Not bad.
