Hi Guys,
can anyone recommend a decent/bright/rechargeable front light that can attach to the handle bars of a Trek Madone 9? In an ideal world it would fit on to my 'out in front Garmin mount' preferably on the underside. I've seen a picture online of this particular setup but can't find a retailer.

Thanks

You can mount almost any light to the bars using the mounts that come with the bike. Best fit seems to be the Bontrager Ion light, but I use a Cygolite and have no issues. If you need a picture just let me know.

K-Edge makes a Garmin handlebar mount that has a Go-Pro adapter underneath. If you then get the Bontrager Helmet Mount/Strap for their lights, you can take the little piece the Ion 800 attaches to and attach that to the underside of the K-Edge - that little Bontrager part from the helmet mount is compatible with Go Pro mounts. I did this for my training bike and it's great. Alternatively, any out in front Garmin mount that has an underside Go Pro mount could do this if you didn't want the K-Edge one.

I use the Ion 800 RT. It's perfectly integrated to their mount. Can't go wrong with it, really.
