Sea Otter 2014 – Bar Fly

by Brian Mullin on April 20, 2014

Bar
Fly is releasing a new bike computer mount called the SLi Fly that will
fit the larger Garmin Edge 1000, along with attachment capabilities for
a GoPro, light, junction box and other accessories, making it a true
cross usage mounting platform. The SLi Fly follows the Fly 2.0 design,
so it has a dual mounting position feature, so smaller format Garmin
Edges (200, 500) and larger format Edges (510, 800, 810, 1000) fit
closer to the stem, along with a lower mounting position for better
visibility. The SLi Fly has an aluminum body and plastic back tabs for
the Edge computer’s interface, and an easy to use hinged handlebar clamp
with a one bolt mechanism. The SLi Fly mount comes in 31.8mm ($49.95)
and 35mm ($54.95) handlebar diameters, and will be available April 22nd.

The new GoPro mount fits underneath the SLi Fly interface, connecting up with two bolts, and will retail for $15.

They
also had a water bottle mount for the GoPro, which is basically a
replacement cap with a GoPro female tooth on it. The GoPro water bottle
cap mount ($15) should make for some interesting footage with a
different perspective when installed in a bike’s water bottle cage. In
addition, when the bottle is weighed down with water, sand or rocks, it
gives a tall and stable standalone pseudo tripod.

The
GoPro Handlebar Mount ($49.95) utilizes a double-clamp mount and
attaches to 31.8mm bars. The flip-flop design gives a nice first-person
viewpoint, and can offer a variety of different perspectives by moving
the GoPro and the mount to any angle desired. The Derlin plastic
material is safe on carbon bars, and the tool-free locking lever system
is simple to use.

The
new Hopper Saddle Bag ($17.95) uses their unique strap system and a
coffee bag to create a functional saddle bag. It can use any 12-16 oz.
sized coffee bag, and the strap is expandable so you can adjust things
depending upon your load requirements.

They’ll be offering an
insurance program for products (Garmin, GoPro, iPhone, etc.) that mount
to Bar Fly’s components. It comes in two versions, with $20 and $40
annual premiums, depending on the product’s cost. To be eligible, a
rider must have a Bar Fly and qualifying device.
