Bar Fly showed off several new mounts that hold your choice of action cam, cycling computer or headlight…sometimes two at the same time.
The Bar Fly SLi, above, adds an additional mount to the bottom of their original out-front mount. The mounting hardware can be swapped to hold either a GoPro-style camera (based on the mounting style) or headlight. There’s even room behind it to mount the Di2/EPS junction box, making for a very tidy cockpit despite rampant accessorization.
The top side will offer mounting plates for Garmin, Joule, Cateye, Mio and Magellan computers, including the Garmin 1000 and 310/910/920XT watches with QR mount. Buy it with the one you need, then order the replacement mount if you ever switch computer brands.
Out front ain’t the only place you can stick all this stuff though…
The SLi uses replaceable mounting plates to fit various devices and brands. It retails for $29.95, but you’ll need to add the GoPro BAM plate to attach the camera and the Junction Box attachment to fit those (cleanly, anyway), adding $15.95 each.
This bike shows the original VIRB mounted underneath and the BAM mount attached to the top of the SLiD (more on that in a second) up high. Even if you’re not running a computer, this setup is world’s better than GoPro’s stock mounts.
The light attachment works with any small, round light, putting it right where you want it for $15.95 more.
The GoPro Stem Cap is $24.95 and replaces the steerer top cap with a camera mount.
The new GoBottle offers up a small water bottle with a GoPro style mount in place of the mouthpiece. It’s designed to provide an interesting angle more than drinking convenience, but it’ll still hold water. Retail is $15.95.
The SLiD is their mountain bike mount that uses a shorter arm that lifts the computer above the stem. This helps keep it outta harm’s way since a good wipeout is far more likely off road. It, and the SLi out-front mount, both fit 31.8 and 35mm handlebars.
The integrated mount for Fizik stems is finally shipping, using a small metal piece that fits in the slot in the stem’s faceplate and is wedged in place as the faceplate is tightened down.
