Handlebar Accessories


Accessory mounts are not the sort of traditional item that VO is known for, but many folks love them. This Dajia mount is such a clever design that we just had to import it.
The mounting bolts replace the face plate bolts on threadless stems. Since the width of the 5mm bolts is adjustable, it will fit VO stems and probably most others as well. Mount your phone, computer, light, etc, without using up valuable handlebar space.
If you'd like something more traditional on your bars, consider a couple of water bottle cages mounted on our handlebar mounts. Using the retro cages gives it a 1940's or 50's look.
Finally, we have the brass striker bell that many of you asked for. It's a little bigger and louder than the lovely temple bell.

The retro cages bar mounted look DOPE.

DOPE is good?

sorry but the mounting brackets/clamps on the handlebar look terrible. It's all that's wrong with CNC machining. Hopefully you guys can come up with something a bit more elegant.

Or, the clamps can provide a blank canvas for a tinkerer to impart his or her own aesthetic, through file work, cutouts, and polishing.

James, Those clamps are actually extrusions, not CNC. Old school clamps were pressed sheet metal and it was hard to get them tight enough so they wouldn't rotate down. Over-tighten and they just bend. Some had a little extension going to the quill that prevents rotation, but that was a really awkward solution.

Now if you could do a decaleur that mounts to the faceplate just like that you'd make many of us very happy!

Could someone post a few images of the Dajia being used? Is there a clamp element to the design or is it simply a rest?
