Adjustable Windscreen Brackets - Madstad or Algard?
I have been reading all the comments on the Madstad bracket, but only recently tripped over one of our members (can't remember which thread) who has a similar gizmo from Algard, although it is not shown (that I can see) on the Algard website. I contacted Algard (they responded within an hour or so), and got the following info:
thank you very much for your interest in ALGARD products.
Here are the prices for adjustable screen bracket (Laser cut Stainless steel/ CNC machined Aluminium alloy):
-screen bracket _____48.00 EUR
-Europe_____________7,55 EUR (4-7 days)
-rest of the world______8,30 EUR (10-15 days)
So, the obvious question, which one is better? Anyone tried both or seen both in action? The Algard is a bit cheaper, but at first glance may not have as much height adjustment (just guessing). Rigidity differences? Clearly the Madstad is an "adjust on the fly" thing (finger knobs), whereas the Algard needs tools (although I could see myself getting it right then leaving it alone...).
