Innovative space-saving mount declutters your handlebars

When there is so much technology to play with, your handlebar can end up looking like a gadget shop window display. You can easily have a GPS or bike computer, light and action camera vying for space, leaving you with precious little room to use the bar for its intended purpose.

    Guee has come up with a clever solution. It’s taken the out-front style of a Garmin GPS mount, made popular by the likes of K-Edge, and added a few extras.

    The base of the arm’s forward section integrates a horizontal bank of four LEDs into a neat visibility-aiding light (it’s not bright enough to ride with this alone). The light will run for 25 hours in flash mode, 20 in strobe or seven if powered constantly. It has a token right-hand side-light port for a bit of side-on visibility. Charging takes just over two hours, and water resistance is excellent. A rubber power switch on the rear of the clamp makes it simple to operate when riding.

    The under-mounting action camera bracket costs extra, but is a worthy investment. If using a GoPro or action camera isn’t your thing, powerful front lights that use an action camera mount bracket can be found from Guee, Electron and Light & Motion. The mount not only works with GoPro but also Shimano, Sony and Garmin Virb, thanks to its camera-standard 0.25in-thread tripod bush.

    If you don’t use a Garmin as your main ride recording unit the G-Mount’s G bracket (Garmin) can be switched for a C bracket (for use with Cateye computers) or add an S adaptor to make it compatible with Sigma’s Rox series.

    At 125g, including the camera mount, it’s weightier than options from the likes or K-Edge, but a lot lighter than the combined associated mounts and brackets you would need instead of this single-stop replacement.

    In use, the G-Mount is stable and secure, and the neatly off-centre mount sits inline with your stem. Our only criticism is that with Garmin’s larger Edge 1000 you have to mount the GPS horizontally rather than inline. It works just as well in landscape mode, but feels less racy.
