They work great. I have a touring bike that I often ride after dark. I have two of the Problem Solvers mounted on the front eyelet of my Surly front rack. I’ve been riding on some pretty rough roads. So far the mounts have stayed on the bike and my lights have stayed on the mounts. They’re great!

StarStarStarStarStar Problem solved!

Pros

With the configuration of panniers and a handlebar bag I have, I could not mount my cygolite headlight on my handle bar or front forks. The Problem Solvers Front Rack Light Mount attached to an existing braze-on on my Surly front pannier rack and allowed for optional location that provided an excellent mounting point!

Cons

None yet. Only had the mount for a month. Gave it 5 stars for solving the problem. Time will tell if it works out under multiple adverse situation and weather conditions.

Pros

Sturdy construction
Looks good
Easy to install

Cons

None for me

Other Thoughts

Bought this for my touring bike because my light was blocked after buying a handlebar bag. It does exactly what it says in the description and looks good too. Having the light lower to the ground helps give better vision of what's ahead at night.

StarStarStarStarStar Great solution for limited light mounting issues...

Ownership: a month

Pros

Adds light mount where bar space is limited or aero bars prohibit.
Secure fit
Quality materials
feels and appears well engineered
Wide enough for common lighting choices

Cons

Lower mount than some prefer...but not really a con of the mount.

Other Thoughts

I have aero dropbars and already have a computer and occasionally a bar bike packing pack that make mounting a light difficult but not necessarily impossible. I chose this option because I like the light mounted lower and it also lights up the wheel for additional visibility for side vehicles. (As for head on vehicle visibility, I'm less concerned about that from the front vs the back.)

StarStarStarStarStar Easy to use, but depends on the light

Pros

Free up space on bars

Cons

Your light's beam pattern may not work well when placed down next to the wheel. My Lights and Motion Taz 1200 just didn't work as well when placed down lower, so I went back to putting it on the bars.
