Author Topic: Fork crown bracket for Smart light - are B+M Ixon mounts the same fitting?  (Read 677 times)

I need a fork mount bracket for a Smart front light, and I am having a hard time finding one.

I keep finding B+M Ixon brackets which look tantalisingly as if the fitting that slides into the bottom of the light might be the same....

Does anyone know if one of these:

Will do me?

Or if anyone sells a fork crown bracket actually made by Smart, or another make that uses the same fitment?

I would prefer a neater solution than hanging the handlebar bracket on one of these:

(Which also looks more prone to rattling loose and / or the light slowly drooping), but if that’s my only option, does anyone have a (dis)recommendation for a bracket like that? - there are a few choices out there.

Yep, they're the same fitting.  I've used a Smart (and a PlanetX clone) in one of those brackets.  Works well.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Excellent, thanks

Which Smart light out of interest? Am looking at a similar setup.

Something with 'Lunar' in the name.  Takes 2 AA cells.  I think there have been several iterations over the years.

The three different Smart front lights I've had all used interchangeable mounts. One Lunar something with 2xAA from near the top of their range 10+ years ago, one similar but cheaper and squarer a few years later, and one higher-spec USB rechargeable from a couple of years back. None of of them are marked with the model name.

My LBS doesn't stock Smart lights any more- are they still a thing?
