Friction in the linkage might affect the way that kind of setup feels, and it might not make any noticeable difference in the end, but I'd like to know if I'm missing something here.
the lightness will come with the length of the arm radially from either pivot point and the ratio of the two lengths from the stem and the headlight pivot point.
