Sometimes it's just worth it to get the good stuff. I hesitated a bit to pay up for a mere computer mount, but after experiencing the failure of a similar but cheaper alloy product (which could have led to a catastrophic crash), I decided to pay up. This is a really well executed product. Simple, clean design. Quality materials. I run a Nite Rider light beneath for a tidy, sano setup. My only quibble is that the bolt affixing the mount underneath was secured so tightly that I almost rounded it upon removal. Be sure you have a quality hex key and a good purchase in case you encounter the same.
