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

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.

He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
