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.
Thank you for your quick service the parts are beautifully made. I have lot more parts I will be purchasing and I look forward to working with you. Sincerely Loren Lewis

Unique, High Quality Solutions
I bought two 4-bolt double-ended clamps in 31.8 x 22.2 to use as part of my bikepacking system. I mount a clamp to each side of the stem, and connect them at the front with a section of 22.2mm aluminum tube (cut from an old MTB handlebar). From this I hang a compression bag using straps. This system is light and stable. I can adjust the angle to keep the dry bag from contacting the head tube. Two clamps are not cheap, but they are versatile and lighter than a dedicated handlebar harness or products intended for this purpose. I can also mount my old Cinelli Spinaci bars to 31.8mm handlebars. Very happy with the quality of machining, except the edge of the 31.8 clamp area was sharp so I deburred it using fine wet/dry sandpaper. I would like to see all the edges softened a little so they are not sharp.
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.
