How does the track mount attach to the bike? Under the saddle with zip ties?

What stems will those mounts fit? Very neat indeed!

Love the Giant SLR Aero bar mount is great too!

Have you made a stem mount that fits the Giant Contact OD2 stems by any chance? Will drop you a message I think!

Ordered and received my Zipp SL Stem version within 3 days, not bad going! Few pics in situ.

One thing to note, it comes with M5 x 30 Bolts supplied by Tillquist (thanks), I swapped them out for Pro-bolt Ti Versions, so that when you subtract the existing Zipp Clamp Bolts for these plus the Mount, it comes to 12grams all in.

I do not know, but I have two and have not had an issue with the longer bolts. Both have handled the torque and the handlebar as not slipped either.

Any plans to offer a Bontrager compatible unit? Think the c-c is 18mm.
