3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using an additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. I can remember seeing this on Tomorrows World years ago! and it has now arrived to the masses!
Now you get the idea of what they do, RaceWare quote on their website they can customize any item they produce, sounds good to me! for example words and colours etc, here is the link, see what they can do for your next mount, http://www.racewaredirect.co/customise/

We have for test and review, two from their many ranges of bike mounting clamp's, we chose the Garmin, and the Cateye, as there are a lot of Garmin users riding bikes up and down the country, and also Cateye are a leading brand of lights, fitted to many bike's.(Totally forgot that Cateye also produce Cycle computers, we will tell you how we get on as the mount we have is not for a light)
A colour chart as standard, they offer 11 standard colours which are: Black, Red, Pink, Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, Purple, Neon Yellow, Neon Orange and Neon Pink.
A bit about RaceWare, just read this great link to how they came about
It easy to fit with a Hex key fitting, that is in every cyclists tool bag, has a nice rubber gripper in the inner ring that stops it from moving and has a lot of grip.
If you have a Garmin fitted to your header bar or handle bars, then check out RaceWare for that something different to have on your bike, it holds the Garmin nice and solid, and makes it a practical accessory.
A worth while addition, it will also allow for other kinds of mounts on your bars as well, look them up they are on Facebook

What better way than to let a camera cyclist mount there GoPro to a RaceWare mount, this is subject to change bikes, as the one above is not the usual bike used by Dave Sherry of Harlow.
This will be a real test, the camera is used every day to record cycling road safety videos on his way to and from work,
Here are a few other mounts and grips that Race Ware Direct manufacture.
