Accessory Mounting

TerraCycle Mounts - Secure Mounting Places for all Types of Accessories

Finding a safe and secure way to mount lights, mirrors, computers, GPSs and other accessories on a recumbent can often prove to be difficult. However, TerraCycle’s strong CNC machined Accessory Mount can solve many of these mounting problems.

The TerraCycle Mounts have been successfully tested on many recumbents from reputable manufacturers such as ICE, HP Velotechnik, Greenspeed, Terra Trike, KMX and more.

Accessory Mount, Cockpit Mount, Twin Cage Mount, Seat Side Mount

Acessory Mount
You can center up your light on a derailleur post and away from most of the foot induced strobe effect. You can mount a computer on your bike or trike where you choose for best visibility. You can mount a Taillight on a seat strut, a front light on your handlebar mast- the possibilities are endless.

This extremely versatile Accessory Mount is available in different sizes and with several optional items. Options include extensions and adapters that further expand the usefulness of this already versatile mount.

The TerraCycle Accessory Mount gets it’s stability through several unique, patent pending features. First, the legs are keyed to the central mount tube with a circular slot and held together by a special bolt and nut combination (the special coupler nut is made in Germany). The legs are larger than conventional mounts in order to prevent the mount from twisting. All parts are CNC machined and are thick where necessary and thinned out where it’s not. They are much more solid than others which are often made of sheet metal only. Anodized aluminum spacers are pressed into the Cateye mounting clamps to precisely hold the legs. Each of these things contributes to making a stable, vibration free, super rigid mount.

The angle of the legs as well as the Cateye mounting clamps can be adjusted in many different ways. The number of possibilities is almost unlimited. Every time we play with it we find one more use. We are using it on recumbents, folding bikes, and both threaded and threadless stem diamond frame bikes. With the curved shape of the legs, one can curve past cables, brake tubes or any other things that might be in the way. The legs are designed so you can flip them over, so you can curve them either way. The angle and position of the mount can be altered by flipping the mount upside down or rotating the mounting brackets closer or farther apart.

The really cool thing is that most front end accessories need a horizontal mount, and instead of most items ending up on your handlebars- which then interferes with hand position, or, like on a high racer, end up in your line of sight- you can now put things other places on your bike. This mount is perfect for high racers or short wheelbase recumbents and even uprights, too!

The TerraCycle Accessory Mount allows more adaptability than any other mount. Two brackets can even be staggered one above the other for multiple lights! We find this to be one of the most unique and useful mounts we have ever seen. Many customers are coming back for 2, 3, 4, 5, or even 6 more mounts. To all you multiple mount buyers - and in fact everyone – we would love more pictures of how you are using them!

For most recumbent applications, we recommend the 50x75 mm arm combination. If you want more room, or to get things further away from the frame, go for the 75x100 mm version. On upright bicycle stem mounting applications, we recommend the 75x100 mm or 100x100 mm arm combinations for maximum versatility. If you are mounting on a fork blade, we recommend the 50x75 mm setup. For some Highracer Recumbents, the 100x100 mm combination allows you to put a light down low and right in front of the BB shell.

A Tab Mount for a dynamo light is a standard feature of our European Accessory Mount spec. The mounting tube of the Accessory Mount also provides a 30 mm width of 1in diameter tube, plenty space for most any bicycle accessory. The mounting tube also has two grooves designed to carry an O ring for those accessories that use O rings for attachment.

Cockpit Mount
The core feature of its design is a double articulated joint that holds a short length of tube between both hinges. This allows for attaching the Cockpit Mount to the handlebars at any desired angle, making it a One- Size- Fits- All solution. The length of the articulation is designed as to under all circumstances leave sufficient space for the use of brakes and shifters. Even when wearing gloves there is ample space to use the handlebar controls.
CNC machined mounting parts give the Cockpit Mount its extraordinary sturdiness. In fact, one might easily grab it and lift the entire bicycle/ tricycle with it.

Typically, the Cockpit Mount is attached just below the existing controls such as brake levers and gear shifters, and fits most if not all current types of underseat handlebars. The mounting clamps with an 7/8” inner diameter are merely ½” wide in order to allow for the Cockpit Mount to be installed even in the most confined spaces.

They are open at the front which makes for an easy retrofit without the hassle of having to dismantle any of the existing components.

The T- shaped tube has a height of 23 cm allowing for height adjustment. It is 12,5 cm wide which offers ample space for the installation of GPS, camera, smartphones, bicycle computer, mirror, headlight etc, almost at the rider´s eye level. The cross tube in turn is fashioned asymmetrically and can be mounted with the longer part inboards or outboards, just as required

Cockpit Mount Mini
The Cockpit Mount Mini is 10 cm wide and 7,5 cm tall and enquires 38 mm of insertion into the handlebar for a net height above the end of the handlebar of 38 mm. Requires 10 mm of clear handlebar end to clamp onto. Made from black powder coated aluminum. The Mini fits into any handlebar that can take bar end shifters. Double sided clamp grips the outside end of your handlebar and the vertical part of the T.

Twin Cage Mount
Incredibly versatile, the TwinCage Mount can hold up to two different water bottle holders in a variety of heights and angles. Either fine tune your angle for perfect reaching capability, or lock in to one of three preset positions for ease and maximum staying power; then bolt your water bottle holders at a height that works best for you! Bolts in place on any standard bottle mount location. Great for trikes, your bottles can be more vertical so no drips, the TwinCage Mount will make sure your bottle is never out of reach again! For any bike/trike with standard bottle cage mounting bosses. This mount is most suitable for bikes and trikes where the existing bottle cage mount is basically horizontal, and you would prefer that it be more vertical. Can theoretically be attached to an add on (clamp on) mount, but the mount would need to be very strong if you want to run 2 bottles.

Seat Side Mount
The TerraCycle SeatSide Mount System is an excellent way to carry things where they're easy to reach while you're riding your recumbent trike. It includes a versatile system of reconfigurable clamps and mounting tubes to fit nearly any recumbent trike, delta or tadpole. Typical uses include bottle holders, map holders, camera bags, phones, or handlebar bags from the upright bike world—anything you want to have close at hand while riding.
