SRAM launch Quickview computer mount

Now it's SRAM's turn to get in on the Garmin alternative mount game

by David Arthur   November 11, 2012  

There must be something in the air this week. No sooner had we published our roundup of alternative mounts for the Garmin Edge 200/500/800 GPS computers than SRAM released details of their own computer mount. It seems the computer mount battle is hotting up. Who'd have thought?

The Quickview Computer Mount uses a design similar to others on the market with an off-set clamp design that aligns the computer directly in front of the stem, thus clearing your handlebars/stem of clutter and placing the computer in a more forward position that is arguably easier to read when you're actually riding.

SRAM say the Quickview is compatible with computers with 1/4 turn twist lock interface and a 31.8mm bar surface. So that's the Garmin then, Bryton and Quarq power meter. The fact SRAM have sent us photos of the mount with a Garmin Edge 500 installed leads us to suspect it's clearly aimed at Garmin users... There are a lot of them about.

They've made it from a composite material with a single T25 stainless steel bolt clamping it in place, and it weighs just 20g. No details on a UK price just yet, (we've asked) but Garmin have released suggested Euro and Dollar prices of €18 and $20 respectively.

This looks a lot neater than the Garmin version I have on order, any idea on price whilst I'm still in a position to cancel? Wink

Looks smart. +1 re price.

If I could have, say, 6 bikes, would it stop me drooling over others that I don't have?

I've seen £12.99 mentioned somewhere about this...

Just added the pricing info we have from SRAM, we've asked for a UK price but it should be somewhere in line with the euro and dollar prices

The original works well enough for me.

Mine was on back order from Wiggle for a while but has just arrived. Looks like good value for money compared to the alternatives. And I does (tightly) fit my Bryton 40 as well (so should fit a 20 and 30/35 too). My only complaint is that they have used a Torx screw! In the cycling world we already have a pseudo standard, and it isn't Torx screws! Surely SRAM know this? I'm going to have to see whether I can find a work around tool rather than going out to buy a Torx set Sad that complaint aside, I'd say this is a very viable alternative.
