Good point. My personal preference at the moment are the ones made by Nitto...very solid clamp, but not as flexible in terms of mounting positions and bar shape as the others, so probably wouldn't solve the OP's problem. Of the three I mentioned, I'd say the Topeak seems to be the best made, though the Nitto is far more solid. I've just started using one with my 76CSx
Another suggestion to the OP might be to take a look what companies like RAM are making for motorcycle GPS mounts to see if anything will work. I know they have various bar mounts that usually involve U-bolts. I have a RAM windshield mount for my 76CSx and it's built like a tank, but would probably look pretty ridiculous on a bike.
