Lightweight, super strong and beautifully designed. The Duo Mount is a dual-purpose bike mount that attaches your bike computer and camera to your handlebars.
While bike mounts have been a necessity ever since we wanted to squeeze more devices onto our handlebars, we found that most bike mounts lacked beauty, strength, multi-functionality and are often quite expensive. So we set out to create something that is super strong, has great visual appeal, is lightweight and is a true multi-tasker. We wanted to declutter your handlebars without breaking the bank.
We challenged ourselves to create something exceptional, which meant we needed to find superior, proven materials. We thought we'd look towards astronautics and landed on 7075 aluminium.
This aluminium alloy is used for special purpose aerospace projects, such as NASA’s Saturn V rocket. To date, this is the most powerful launch vehicle made on Earth and seemed like a good place to start.
So what does this mean for you? Not only does it sound cool (let’s face it, you’re one step closer to being the world's first astronaut on a bicycle now), but your mount is stronger, more enduring and has greater resistance to corrosion. In fact, the Duo Mount it is almost twice as strong as other aluminium mounts on the market without any compromise on weight (for those weight weenies among us).
Bikes are beautiful.
We love our rides and take pride in how they look. Your bike and how you set up your cockpit are a form of personal expression. So why should your mount look dull and boring? We challenged our designers to come up with a design that couples performance with true style.
The Duo Mount is 2 in 1 solution. Designed for a 31.8mm handlebar it holds your bike computer on top and your action camera below. Unlike other mounting options, the Duo Mount comes with the flexibility to attach almost any bike computer without the need to purchase extra adaptors or accessories. It all comes in one pack and there is no lock-in with one brand or device. You can also connect any action camera or other device (i.e. bike lights) that uses the universal mounting system with the typical three fins.
Supported bike computer brands are:
- Garmin (including the Garmin 1000)

We are Cycliq, the Australian team who brought you the world's first bike camera/light combination. You may have seen us here on Kickstarter before when we successfully launched Fly6 and Fly12 through this platform. Both products are HD bike cameras with integrated bike lights. Fly6 mounts under your seat, and is rear-facing, while Fly12 is forward facing and mounts to your handlebars.

Fly12 Kickstarter Campaign
As cyclists, we love specs! We know that style, stiffness and looks are important... almost as important as size and weight. With this in mind, we have designed, crafted, measured and weighed. Then we re-designed, re-crafted, re-measured and re-weighed until we came up with the perfect mount.
The Duo Mount can be installed in less than 15 seconds with a single screw and a single pivoting arm. The bolt is conveniently tightened from the top, so there is no risk of dropping bolts or being forced into an awkward position to install from underneath your handlebars. It's really that simple.
Kickstarter has helped us bring our products to bike stores all over the world. From humble beginnings, our supporters have shared our vision for developing products that provide cyclists with real solutions and real benefits. We are incredibly grateful for your continued support.
With this Kickstarter campaign, we want to give something back to the crowdfunding community. We would like to give you the opportunity to be among the first to receive the Duo Mount at an exceptional price and before it hits the retail stores. Once again, thank you for your continued support!
Risks and challenges
Risks are often prone to the unknown. However, we have successfully delivered hi-tech consumer electronics, Fly6 and Fly12, to the market from a similar Kickstarter beginning. We have learned a great deal from that experience and are confident we can emulate that success to deliver you a high quality Duo Mount. We've already successfully developed the first prototypes, commissioned tooling and sourced the raw materials. A more relevant risk in our opinion, is the impact of a larger than expected demand requiring us to scale our tooling and machines.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
