Carbon Fiber Bike Light Holder

This handlebar mounted light holder holds a cheap 9 LED flashlight, and clips onto any bike handlebars.  I built this carbon fiber holder out of the same carbon tow and epoxy I used for my bamboo bike frame.  When layered thinly, the composite is flexible enough so that the holder can clip on and off the handlebars and light without needing any screws.  I lined the holder with some handlebar tape so that it would grip the light and the handlebars.  The entire holder weighs only a few grams, and can easily be switched between bikes.
