RAM handlebar mount

Post by twowheelstom »

I'm going to try this type of handlebar mount instead of the U clamp type on my 1" bars

Looks nice - nicer than the U-Clamp. Never seen that one before.

I used the supplied rubber tape in the kit under the mount, to keep the mount from sliding around the bar,
and put electrical tape under the nuts to keep them from falling out before they got tightened up

That looks pretty good! I've never been a fan of the u-bolt mounts.

If you wanted a chrome verson of that to match bars and maybe bike, Tackform makes chrome mounts similar, but better built with all metal, 20mm balls that might work. You would still need a black AMPS mount for GPS but that would be behind the chrome clamp and arm. The web link shows teh phone mount but you can mix and match parts and many come in chrome finishes.
