Battery Free At Last

This is version 1.0 for my dynamo light install.  I used the existing bracket from my Niterider Pro 1800 head light.  I used almost 30 zip ties for this install.  I am thinking that once I have the light positions finalized I will order some wire with more rubber protection and have the ends made professionally.

I have a B&M Luxos U that I purchased from Peter White  Cycles.  I have been corresponding with Peter and Linda White for about two years before making this purchase.  I must say that they are a great company to purchase bicycle gear from.  I usually know what I want, but in this case I was clueless about dynamo lighting.  I read their web site for months and then I send them an email.  they responded and answered all of my questions.

I ordered the SON Delux first and send it to Podium Multi Sport. Podium is where I had my bike fit and they were building my bike.  I wanted the SON to be built into my front wheel until i decided on what light to use.
Front fork with SON Delux.  Red objects are the incorrect Imperial connectors. They are taped with electrical tape to prevent contact.  I will order the correct Metric connectors for version 2.0

The tail light is good to go.  It is the head light that I want to move.  It is too high on my handle bars.  I would prefer a bracket so that the head light is positioned below the handle bars and attach to the stem.

I appreciate all of the comments and links to brackets that may provide a solution.  One of the latest ideas is to look at GoPro bracket systems.  I will continue to look at these.
