Hi Raven Rider,

(Nice handle...)

All cradles remain $75, check or money order only. I pay USPS Flate Rate Priority Mail to all ADV Inmates, to CONUS addresses.

If you want a SPOT cradle though, you should PM me to confirm stock availability before sending a a check, and I'll shoot you a reply. Then you can print the instruction and liability release form, read - initial - sign that, and get it coming my way with your check. Gen1/Gen2 SPOTs are available in BLACK or Carbon KYDEX and in stock at this time. (SPOT cradles are the only cradles that I require the signed release hard copy in hand before I ship.)

Thanks for all!

Stovey

Field Test (Crash Report from Wyoming)

Berg Briggs remains one of my most arduous field testers - he has no fear of riding hard, nor of setting his KTM down occasionally...

His most recent get-off in the Red Desert yielded a broken RAM ball from the impact of his cratering into his handlebars with his chest protector. Luckily, he was unhurt and his bike was fine too! But the cradle got sheared from the bars and landed in the desert - GPS unharmed.

Cradle - unharmed. No damage.

RAM ball - busted.








The cradle Berg was using was an early prototype that's been in service for a couple years. Newer ones are much improved over this version, but it still functions as intended. That gives me some satisfaction, and glad he wasn't hurt when out doing some earth-moving in the Big Sandy last weekend. (Good riding with ya, Berg.... you too Jwats.)

All the best,

Stovey

Hi,

These are the kinds of things you will need to mount my CRADLE - (customer supplis his/her own RAM Mounts. RAM Mounts are not included with my cradles.)

A RAM diamond plate with ball

http://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-dia...am-b-238u.html


The BUZZ BOMB Cradle is designed to connect to the RAM Diamond Plate on the back of the cradle. The diamond plate has a 1.0 inch diameter rubber ball connected at right angles to the plate, which connects directly to the 1 inch arm socket. You will also need the RAM arm socket...

http://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-med...am-b-201u.html


You will also need a way to get this onto your bike, and there a different ways to do that with the RAM system. A common mounting is on the handlebars using a setup like this...

http://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-zin...m-b-231zu.html


Medium length arm kit:
https://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-cr...inch-ball.html

or maybe,

Short length arm kit:
https://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-zi...-assembly.html


Thats the basics. There are so many options to "get your balls together" with RAM components that each rider needs to sort that out with their own bike. Different handlebar diameters take different sized U-bolts, so pay attention to your dimensions when shopping.


But I will stress that the cradle I make is designed to work only with the RAM mount system. The adjustability and shock absorption and impact resistance of the RAM mounts help keep my cradles "bomb-proof." Mounting them any other way with any other components is recommended against.


Thanks!


Stovey

are you around

Stovebolt,

I want a cradle for a friends 60csx. I suspect that my check will get to you in 3 days.
Can you send me a cradle to arrive(San Francisco) by June 14th?
Not too picky with the material/look....do prefer the kydex carbon fiber if possible.

thanks
Phil

New "Holstex" is shipping now...

Hiya,

All orders shipped and the last of the older Kydex "Carbon Kydex" lighter grey color is almost gone. When I'm out of these it will be awhile - if ever - that I do another run of that coloration. The newer Holstex Carbon Fiber (look-alike) is what I've got going, but all SPOT's and Garmin 60's are still on hand in Carbon Kydex (lighter grey fleck). Some items not on hand in the new Holstex pattern yet but I'm trying to build some more stock of these.

Meanwhile, everything ordered is out the door, and so am I, for the weekend. Will answer any PM's starting again on Monday June 11.

Thanks again to everybody for your orders, encouragement and kind words! Happy trails for now...

All the best,

Stovey

Hey Stovebolt, I'd like to get a cradle for my Garmin 60 in the "Holstex" if you have them available.
Thanks,

Thumb Fast shipping

Shipping was very fast. Got a quote on Monday, received it on Wednesday.

Good product, it fits very well.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy another or recommend to my friends.

Thanks Stovey, keep it up.

No affiliation but I wanted to drop a line here. Dave (Aka: Stovebolt) makes great products. I have a SPOT mount that has been on my bike a while now and it is fantastic, good looking and rock solid. If you have doubts about purchasing one of these you can be sure that you are receiving a A+ product.

Thank you Steve and Charlie!

I am very fortunate to have such good people as customers such as yourselves. I'm glad you are satisfied, of course... but for you to take the time to say something so complimentary is very gracious. This makes me try all the harder to make things great for everybody, every chance I get. I sincerely appreciate it!

All the best my friends,

Stovey

Garmin MONTANA's coming soon...

I've been tooling up for the new Garmin Montana's and I should have some of these available soon.

Carbon Holstex material. Same price as all the others. $75. PM to order.

Thanks!

Stovey



Sorry for the Crappy pictures...



Carbon HOLSTEX








Montana and a 60Csx


Montana and a Gen2 SPOT


Montana and a Gen1 SPOT




60Csx and a Gen2 SPOT


SPOT and a SPOT (Gen1 and a Gen2)





*Gen2 SPOT installation note*

You MUST remove both safety covers over the HELP and OKAY activation buttons prior to installation into my cradles.


These things gotta come off before you put a Gen2 SPOT into a Buzz-Bomb cradle


GEN2 SPOT only - remove back cover over battery compartment.


Safety covers are designed to be removable. Slip them off from their keeper tab, no tools needed.


Get them both off, one from each side.




Make it look like this, both safety covers removed. Then install into Buzz-Bomb cradle after that.

This procedure is a condition of use. Thanks!

Rally on,

Stovey

All cradles still $75 each. I pay mailing to ADV members via US Postal Service, Flat Rate Priority Mail
