FAQ

What is the proper torque spec for my Bar Fly?

The proper toque setting is going to be about 1.25 NM. This will likely not register on a torque wrench. WARNING: DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN the SCREW!

Instructions: Tighten screw to 1/4 turn past “hand tight or snug” (1.25-1.5Nm).

Do I need to unwrap my bars to mount my Bar Fly?

No, but you will need 12mm of round clamping space next to the stem.  The Bar Fly has a hinged (or flexible- depending on model) clamp, allowing for easy installation.

How do I warranty my Bar Fly:

All our products have a limited warranty for manufacturing defects. Please email us at info@barflybike.com with the following information:

  • Photo of mount
  • Description of failure
  • Computer/product used on mount
  • Date Purchased
  • Shipping address
  • S&H fees apply to approved replacements

Is Bar Fly 2 the same as Bar Fly 4?

The new Bar Fly 4 mounts allow riders to mount up to 3 accessories simultaneously.

Our previous generation Bar Fly 2.0 (NOT 2.0 SLi), is not compatible with our current interchangeable computer head system (BAM), or the ability to mount multiple accessories.

I have a Specialized road bike, do you make a mount for it or offer replacement parts?

No, the mount needed for your stem is produced by Specialized and Bar Fly supplies all of the nylon adapters included with it. In short; our adapters and computer heads will work on the Specialized mount, including the associated hardware (screws). However, the hardware that connects to the mount to the stem faceplate is unique to Specialized and is not carried by Bar Fly.

Although many of our parts are compatible, if you have warranty or missing parts concerns with your Specialized accessories, please contact Specialized.

If you want to purchase Bar Fly compatible replacement parts, they are available here.

Which mounts work with 35.0 handlebars?

All of our clamp-on mounts except for the TT.

I am struggling to remove my Cateye computer:

Please follow the steps below to remove.

  • Please be sure to push the computer away from bar/stem in a forward motion, not down or up (this will make it harder to remove).
  • Stand behind the handlebar (like you are riding the bike), using the palm of your hand to push on the back/face of the computer.
  • Use your fingers to wrap below the computer and hold the bottom edge of the front of the computer- to ensure the computer is coming out in a linear motion.
  • Gently start pushing forward. The computer is engaged via a small ‘hook’ which will depress and release upon the above actions.

Once removed, you will be able to slide back in, and feel an audible ‘click’ when the computer is reengaged in the Bar Fly.

I have an integrated Bar/Stem, what mount do you recommend?

The Bar Fly Spoon is designed specifically for an integrated Bar. Please check the underside of the ‘stem’ portion of your integrated setup. If you have 2 accessory holes, the Bar Fly Spoon mount will fit your integrated bar. The Spoon includes 2 screws for mounting.

Can I mount multiple accessories on the Bar Fly Spoon?

The Bar Fly spoon was designed specifically for integrated bars. The mount is designed and built to be extremely strong. However, with the variance of integrated bars/stems, we cannot advise customers to mount more than a computer on the Spoon mount.

Does my computer fit on a Bar Fly?

Please refer to our Mount/Computer Compatibility Chart.
