You can get those small blinking ones, with a built in silicone strap to wrap the light around the helmet slots. You can try the Infini brand type, get from MBS or Lifecycle.

Or you can rig up sort of a mount. Wrap a large silicone strap (the type that is used to mount flashlight to handlebar), and slot a rear light. Or use cable ties to create something like a strap so that you can hook your light on it. Sorry I don't have pictures, but you can ask Steven Tang about that.

Regards,
Steve

Mustafas has a light that is meant for the helmet byusing elastic strapes to mount. It is ard $40 comes with a 191 lumens front light and a rear blinking red light for incoporated into the battery pack. Uses 4 AA batts but is rather heavy in prolong uses. I only use it with one of my bikes as the bike light.

You can findit at the torch light section in the basement of the new side.

Light: Get this brand called SMART. They come in 0.5 Watt and 1 Watt. VERY bright even in the day.

Attachment, get velcro or cable tie and make a bracket of sort at the back of your helmet stringing the velcro or cable tie through the holes in the helmet. Attach light to the bracket using the clip that comes with the light.

Personally, I mounted the SMART 0.5W light on the rear of my helmet before. Very good because it makes you very visible, together with the rear light on your bike.

However, I find that the additional weight at the rear of the helmet tends to make the helmet tip backwards after sometime. It is not a problem if you don't mind adjusting your helmet from time to time. But I have since changed back to the small Infini helmet light due to the helmet tilting backwards.

bright rear lights may be good for visibility mounted on ur bike but not on the helmet
as its irritating to the rider behind u (just my 2 cents)

ya I agree with Zack. most of the time a helmet blinker is sufficient, together with the bike light.

However I do use the SMART 0.5W light mounted on my helmet when I cycle alone to and from work. It is also good if you are the sweeper with nobody cycling behind you.
