First the basic info. The entire package seems to consist of 4 parts:
#1 a RAM rail-base with a U-bolt which clips on/around the handlebar, and a round attachment ball
#2 a double-socket Arm, which connects the rail-base to the actual X-Grip
#3 the X-Grip itself (correctly sized for my phone, doh)
#4 a safety Tether, to keep the phone attached to the Grip instead of flying free in the event of any equipment failure
My specific questions are -
With regards to #2, the connecting Arm, in comes in 2 sizes - longer (3.7"), and shorter (2.4"). The shorter version is slightly pricier (who knows why).
I've attached photos of both so you can see what they look like. Which size do you think would work better with the GTV's handlebars?
With regards to #1 (the rail-base), it comes in either Zinc-coated metal or Stainless steel - the Zinc a little cheaper, the Stainless a little pricier - they look identical --- are there any long-term downsides to the Zinc?
What are your thoughts on this, fellow GTVisti?
