SRAM has joined the ranks of cycling computer mount makers that put your bike brain out front of the handlebar. Actually, they’re joining it again, since the Quarq version sits on the family tree, too.
The SRAM Quickview differs in that it’ll fit all three of Garmin’s computers that use a 1/4 turn mount – the Edge 200, 500 and 800 – where the Quarq’s front guard limits it to the smaller models. Material is a hybrid composite that they claim will cut vibration to the head unit and hold firmly on the bar. It has an offset design that puts the computer in front of the stem, and they say you can mount it rearward facing to position the computer directly next to the stem on mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes to keep it out of harm’s way. Weight is 20g and it mounts with a single T25 Torx bolt on any 31.8 handlebar section. Retail will be $20 (€18) when it goes on sale in December, making it a good bit cheaper than many of the others. Could this be a precursor to a Quarq computer?
