K-Edge Mounts Up GoPro Cams, Removes Excuses for Not Putting Di2 On Your Mountain Bike & More!
We just saw K-Edge at DealerCamp in July, but they’ve been busy since.
First up, we like GoPro. In fact, we just picked up a second unit so we can make some 3D vids. But their handlebar mounts leave something to e desired. K-Edge’s new Go-Big Mounts are that something. Above, the handlebar mount can hold the camera above or below it and mounts to a 31.8 diameter bar.
They’ve got a seat rail mount, too, and lots of other new goodies, right after the break…
They’ve updated the top pieces on their BB-mounted chain catchers to work with 2×10 cranksets and 2x systems with bash guards on triples. These are plastic prototypes, but they’ll be metal. The lower (silver) piece is the anti-chainsuck nub.
They’ve also updated the range of cyclocross chain catchers for singlespeed and geared set ups, increasing the range of mounting and gear options. Here’s one on the bike:
When we talked to them at DealerCamp about the increased availability of the Ki2 conversion kit, they mentioned that they were working with various manufacturers to put together some show bikes but had to work around front derailleur mounting issues. Specifically that a lot of modern suspension frames use some fashion of direct mount front mechs and the original Ki2 FD mount was for round tubes only.
No more. They now have two direct mount options. So there goes that excuse.
Now, about that price. Never fear, they’re already hard at work developing a kit for the new Ultegra Di2. Your excuses are fading fast…
