An essential building block for anyone looking to tinker toy their way to recumbent success is the Double-Ended Clamp! The open-ended four-bolt setup means that installation is a breeze, because you don't have to remove other things from your tube. The high surface area of the Double-Ended Clamp's grip securely clamps into place, holding light accessories or mounts wherever you want them to be. These clamps measures 2" from the center of one clamped tube to the center of the other clamped tube.
1. What an odd shaped clamp. How does it work?
This clamp is designed to be a low clearance, medium duty clamp that's easy to install. That's why the ends are open- it gives you more room to get up close to things, and it makes it easier to install the clamp. The sides just pop apart and you put the clamp where you want.
2. What can I hold with it?
Any round, straight tube that is the right diameter. We an ever-growing library of clamp sizes. It's important the tube is straight for the 1/2 inch (12.7mm) where the clamp is attached. The tube can curve around in other places, but where the clamp is attached needs to be straight.
3. How strong it it?
The four-bolt Double-Ended Clamps are meant for most applications. It's definitely not designed for attaching critical things like steering components, heavy accessories, or exit assist handles. What it can handle strongly depends on the amount of leverage you put on it of course, so the overall design matters a lot.
4. Can I use it on things that aren't the "proper" size?
Unfortunately, no. For the clamp to grip well, it needs to be gripping something that is round, straight, and the rated size. Fortunately, that is usually possible.
- Machined from 6061 aluminum, anodized black. Available in multiple sizes, be sure to use clamps sized exactly for the tubing you wish to clamp.
- Simply remove both bolts, put the halves of the clamp around the tubes, and reinstall the bolts.
- Fits nearly any place you would like to clamp two tubes so they are parallel to each other.
Love T-Cycle's Quality Flexibility and Craftsmanship
Love T-Cycles Quality Products & Service I have bought a number of T-cycles tubes and fixtures to customize my Hase recumbent. Love the fact that the quality of manufacture is top-notch and goes nicely with that same quality of my Hase Trike. Have found solutions for all of my "crazy" add-ons. Also bought the accessory arm they make for the Kett. It holds mirror, an iPhone , water bottle...room for more as needed.

Extra mount for ICE Adventure
I have an ICE Adventure/Shimano with the left handlebar pretty much encumbered with the display. I decided I wanted a cell phone mount for the right handlebar. Two of the 2", 4-bolt clamps worked to get the riser out away from my wrist and also allowed some articulation when mounted below the brake and joined together with a short piece of 7/8" pipe. This seems easier than using the methods that require taking off the bar end shifter and also allows more flexibility, including a place to rest my wrist. The downside was that T-Cycle sent two differently sized clamps, but quickly corrected the situation and sent me a return authorization for the wrong part.
JUST WHAT NEEDED !
Moved a T-cycleside bag mount from my wife's Trident Trikes 20"Fat Terrain, to her ICE Adventure HD 26FS with Shimano Stepps and Alfine 8 speed w di2 Auto Shift seat frame is 1" on the ICE so need the1to7/8" clamp to make the switch happen ! Received in 3 days, now my wife's Adventure HD is sporting a T-Cycle side bag mount w/Topeak Handlebar Bag !
EXCELLENT QUALITY, AS ALWAYS!
These are to support a Windwrap fairing on my Bacchetta Corsa. As I've now come to expect, These were machined & finished perfectly; TerraCycle products have always lived up to my very highest expectations!
Worked fine on chance--lack of critical spec
I purchased two of these to move the cockpit accessories on a Greenspeed X7 toward the cranks because the e-brake handles from Electric Bike Outfitters were much bigger than the original brake handles, and I kept scraping my knuckles on the tires when in a tight turn. I sometimes have a hard time when specs are missing from the description, in this case the center-to-center distance between the pipe positions. I tried to scale from the pictures but somehow got it wrong, It is in fact about 2". In any case, they worked fine and are well made. In order to use them for additional offset in addition to the special one from Greenspeed (necessary to attach to the 15mm diameter kingpins), you will need short pieces of 7/8" diameter pipe, either purchased from T-Cycle or maybe if you like the custom-rigged look, a piece of thinwall conduit.
