Source for handlebar-mounted stopwatch holder?

I've seen photos of these here and there but can't seem to find a source. They're basically a little metal clip that holds a stopwatch at the top and bottom and clips onto the handlebar:

http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk...atch-clip.html

Anybody know of where I can get one?

Thanks!

Really? I have a nice vintage Avocet computer I will let go of. Sometimes older isn't better.

Really - I am planning on mounting a vintage Minerva 30-second stopwatch on it and using it for intervals. I'm weird that way

There have been threads about GPS and clipless recently, I think it's getting to me.

Now that's pretty cool! Maybe we'll have to fab something. I've been thinking about getting an old-school stop watch lately for some reason.

^ It is cool, huh? And I could always mount a pocketwatch in it, too - thus negating the need for a wristwatch and avoiding a tan-line on my left wrist

Guess I'll have to keep an eye out on the UK side of Ebay - and be prepared to pay through the nose a little. Thanks!

I have not seen one of those in years, not that I have been looking for one. You need to try some old bike shops or the bay.

Try Milwaukee/Bens Cycle, write and ask them. Maybe Yellow Jersey.

If worst comes to worst I`m pretty sure a seat clamp with some meccano might do the trick some how

The company is Terry and they're known as a 'stopwatch clip'. Looks like they pop up on UK eBay from time to time.

Thanks to lostarchitect for locating a Terry's on Hilary Stone's site. I emailed HS and have been waiting for a reply, however, look what I found totally by accident yesterday on the 'Bay:





For about $170 shipped I got the Trackmaster and Milremo clip. HS wanted 25GBP for just the clip. I'm happy

Thanks to everyone for their inputs and suggestions. Andy, once it arrives we'll have to see if we might be able to duplicate it.

That looks so awesome. If posted in the roady forum this would have generated comes such as "why don't you use your iPhone's instead, there's an app for that - what are you, a biking cavemen or something?

You're so right

But how many of those guys/gals are going to be able to use their iPhone w/app 30+ years from now?

Mechanicals rule!

In 30 years us C&V'ers will still be rocking Columbus SL or Tange Super Prestige outfittted with Nuovo/super Record and 600 arabesque long after these carbon wonders with Di2 have stopped working.

Congrats Drillium Dude, that is by far the coolest thing I've seen in a while. Now does anyone know where I can find a compass with similar clip and design? Whenever I check on ebay all I get is those plastic bell/compass combo ones.

^ Thanks - and you have the right idea about a traditional compass/mount. Hmmm...stopwatch on the left, compass on the right...?

Now you've got me thinking

My bars are going to end up looking like a dashboard!
