Cyclists have a few solutions for mounting computers on their handlebars. Most computers come with a rubber-band option, and a few aftermarket options exist that clamp around the handlebar. But the cyclists behind F3 Cycling believe a cleaner solution might be appreciated. F3's FormMount attaches via two extended stem bolts, and centers the computer directly in front of or above the stem.
With pivoting arms, the FormMount was designed to fit most existing four-bolt stems.
There are five mounting options, achieved by using the upper or lower bolts, and by flipping the arms around.
The FormMount also has fore/aft adjustability, so you can position your computer where your want it, regardless of its size.
F3 Cycling is a Chicago-based start-up, founded by Tim Boundy with Mike Scalise and Frank Pistorio.
Scalise told BikeRadar that Boundy came up with the idea a few years ago, but the project really began this spring when Pistorio, a product development engineer for PDT started to crank out prototypes.
"FormMount's modular design is not just for cycling computers," Scalise said. "We have the ability to use the interface to accommodate GoPro’s, lights and smart phones. Cycling computers are just for the initial launch."
F3 set the price at US$49. You can see more about how the FormMount works on its Kickstarter page.
