Odd Ortlieb Handlebar Mount
I just purchased an Ortlieb Compact Bar Bag display model from my LBS. The bag was on the display rack mounted on an Ortlieb mount I did not recognize.
At my request, the shop offered me the option of buying the odd mount or the standard Ortlieb mount. I chose the odd mount since since I don't like the Ortlieb key-lock functionality, AND the cable system on this mount looks like it could last many many handlebar changes.
This mount tightens using just the two screws on the front of the mount. There are no screws on the bottom of the mount.
Anybody seen one of these before? Is it an old-style or a beta style that never went public?
I'm curious if this mount is as strong as the standard mount too.
