Handlebar sprouts doodads

My handlebar can't handle another doodad.

My handlebar can’t handle another doodad.

With the latest addition of an action cam and bike bell on my handlebar, I’m tapped out.

Here’s the list:
VDO bike computer
LED flashlight
Mobius action cam
Spurcycle bicycle bell

More information:

The VDO bike computer has been working perfectly for five years. It records elevation and has an inclinometer.

I’ve written about the EagleTac D25LC2 CREE XM-L2 LED flashlight. It’s a joy to use. The rubber band mount works well.

The Mobius action cam takes 1080p video and, as you can see, is tiny. It records up to 90 minutes of video on battery power and uses microSD cards. The price is about $80 and it’s easy to use.

A drawback is that it’s not even water-resistant and it’s somewhat fragile. There’s a smaller V mount that uses pull ties, but it’s only sold with the Pro kit. I rate the video quality close to the GoPro.

Last, there’s the new Spurcycle bicycle bell. I wrote about the bell in a past entry. It’s everything the company owners promised from their Kickstarter promotion. It’s impressively well made in San Francisco. The bell ships with two wire handlebar clasps adjustable with a 1(?)-mm hex key screw head. Nice design.
