Light mount for recumbent trike boom with no derailleur post (HP Velotechnik)

 

On trikes with no derailleur post we are often challenged when mounting a front headlight.

A simple bracket mounted on the boom has limited light visibility (light to the right is blocked by the chainrings) and suffers from "foot flash" -- as your foot passes in front of the light, the light reflects back at you with a temporary flash. This limits your night vision and is downright irritating.

We have resolved these problems with a two-part light mount that extends forward far enough to avoid foot-flash issues.

The light-mount is made with sturdy aluminum and is well-triangulated for strength.

The pictures show this light-mount on an HP Velotechnik Scorpion with no derailleur post.

Azub trikes are adventure ready

Azub will be at AlphaBENT on Wednesday, October 23 to show the latest Czech recumbent technology. Come to for test-rides, and bent-talk.

Catrike has made wider hubs with through-axles standard equipment on all large-wheel models. This change affects the following recumbent trike models: Expedition, 559, Dumont, and 700. The change promotes laterally stronger wheels and prevents movement within the dropouts under load at the expense of compatibility with equipment such as electric hub moters that are designed to the older 135mm dropout widths.
