This mount system is designed to fit into small spaces on handlebars and provide places to mount accessories. It is very versatile and can be reconfigured for many other light duty purposes. TerraCycle found that a lot of trikers would like to mount accessories right below their hands. There often isn't much room on the handlebar to attach a mount, but there is usually at least a little bit of room between the grip and the brake, or right below the brake.
We designed a new low profile clamp that only requires half an inch (about 12.7mm) of room. If you don't have that much room already, you can usually create it pretty easily. The accessory mounting tube can be all sorts of things from mirrors, to computers, to armrests, to phones, GPS, and special needs things. The straight tube comes with 3.75 inches (95mm) length and 7/8 (22.2mm) diameter. The inside is hollow, so standard handlebar accessories can fit on the outside, and things like mirrors can fit on the inside.
In order to maximize the versatility, TerraCycle made the clamp so that it also clamps the accessory mounting tube from the inside. This means all sorts of tubular things can be attached, from ordinary straight tubes to bent or welded shapes. There are all sorts of possibilities. You are not limited to a mount with a particular shape or length, you can easily make things exactly the way you want them. Any ordinary 7/8 inch (22.2mm) handlebar tubing will fit instead of the original tubes. TerraCycle makes a number of straight, bent, and welded tube things that are all compatible like Cockpit Mounts, Seatside Mounts and Fairing Mounts. The outside clamp is designed to clamp around a painted or anodized 7/8 inch (22.2mm) tube. Only 1/2 inch (12.7mm) of open handlebar space is required. The inside clamp is designed to clamp to the inside of a 7/8 inch tube with a wall thickness of 0.065 to 0.049 inches (1.6 to 1.24mm). Most 7/8 tubing for bikes and trikes is in this range.
The wedge clamp is operated by a 6mm bolt accessed from under the arch of the outside clamp. Remove one of the 5mm bolts holding the clamp arch. Swing the arch aside to reach the 6mm edge clamp bolt. Adjust the Accessory Mounting Tube, then tighten the 6mm bolt securely.
Warning: This clamp is designed to be small and lightweight. It is not designed for heavy loads or to carry steering forces.
