Nice use of the bicycle inner tubes to make it fit, I wouldn't have thought of that. Also with them being black you could use them to fill in any small gaps between your diffuser and flashlight chassis.... this would be helpful if you are using colored diffusers. I have used pill bottle lids and/or the pill bottle itself to filter a bright white light to be a red color that is much easier on the eyes at night.
