Laser Adapter

$39.00

Features

This adapter permits non-contact measurement from the crankset/BB by shining a mini laser onto the desired measurement point. This greatly increases the number features that can be measured as there is no access restriction other than a line-of-sight. It is particularly helpful for bike shops and fitters for frame sizing and component selection.

To maintain VeloAngle’s orientation perpendicular to the bottom bracket, the Laser Adapter should be used in conjunction with one of the four available fixed-pin crankset adapters.

Contents

  • Mini Laser
  • Adapter centering the laser in the VeloAngle’s sliding connector bore
  • AAA battery

Specifications

  • Class III Laser (output <5mW at 532nmDo not look into the beam or point at other's faces.
  • Meaurement range is the same as VeloAngle: 648 – 1158 mm

Materials

  • Adapter: Thermoplastic elastomer
  • Laser: Sheet metal housing

Application

Allows noncontact measurement of any point within the VeloAngle measurement range. To maintain VeloAngle’s orientation perpendicular to the bottom bracket, the Laser Adapter should be used in conjunction with one of the four available fixed-pin crankset adapters.

Some common uses:

  • Measuring frame stack and reach (below )
  • Finding saddle clamp center (below )
  • Determining frame tube lengths and angles
  • Saddle setback

Accuracy

Accuracy is dependent on how precisely the user locates the feature of interest . To maintain VeloAngle’s orientation perpendicular to the BB axis, the Laser Adapter should be used in conjunction with one of the four available fixed-pin crankset adapters.

Convenience

The features most applicable to measurement with the laser adapter are those with irregular shapes or in difficult to access locations.

Adhesive dots are provided to enable the laser to remain lit temporarily without holding down the power button and causing the beam to bounce during measurement (below). Do not look into the beam or point at other's faces.
