How to mount a bike light to an aerodynamic bike frame
- See.Sense bike light kit
- A small glass of soapy water (you can use cling film instead)
- Toilet paper
- Aerodynamic seat post
- 1 single-use pack of Sugru
Open your single-use pack of Sugru and form it into a sausage (that's the technical term!)
Press your Sugru sausage onto the back of the light.
Ensure that the Sugru has a good bond into the recession on the back of the light.
Make sure a little more Sugru at the top of the light.
Rub a little soapy water on the part of the seat post you will be moulding the light to.
The soapy water acts as a release agent for the Sugru, so that the Sugru doesn't stick to the post!
* You can use cling film here instead. Just wrap a piece around the seatpost, to stop the Sugru sticking.
Press the See.Sense bike light firmly into the seat post. Watch with wonder as the Sugru squishes to take the form of the aero post.
Press in any Sugru that comes out of the sides.
Remove the bike light gently. It will now be moulded to the shape of the post.
* The soapy water on the post will enable the Sugru to come away cleanly.
Leave your Sugru + bike light to set for 12-24 hours.
Ensure the Sugru is not touching any other surfaces (as the Sugru will want to stick to that too!)
Don't forget to wipe the seat post clean with some toilet paper.
Ta-dah! In 12-24 hours your light will be ready to use!
