Here i'm going to show you a little hack I've made from an old bicycle tire. Sometimes I've found myself in need of a light for my bike when I return home at nigh, I also carry a 200 lumen CREE AA-battery flashlight from my EDC so I've decided to make a little sleeve from an old tire so it can be attached to the handlebar. It also doubles as a water protection since it covers the gaps from the cap.
Step 1: Materials
You're going to need:
- An old bike tire that fits your flashlight
- Your flashlight
- A pen
- Some cutting tool
- A plastic cap that fits your flashlight (optional)
Step 2: Cut the Tire
Measure the tire and cut one section the size of the flashlight. Then flatten the tire and draw a "C" shape in one of the sides, cut it so you end having an oval shape.
Step 3: Assembling
Once cut, fit the flashlight into the tire and put the plastic cap over the flashlight and under the tire sleeve.
Step 4: Mounting
Your flashlight mount is ready, when needed, just take off the cap side of the sleeve, mount over your handlebar and put the cap back again. Thank you for reading.
