I bought the Ortlieb Ultimate 6 handlebar bag last year for a Southern Tier ride. I liked the bag and the method of connection so much, I decided to purchase a second mounting set so I could use the bag on both of my bikes. It is interesting that this mounting set is very similar to and works with a bag with the Klickfix setup that I had purchased many years ago from REI. Although I have never had any issues with the older Klickfix mounting bracket, the Ortlieb bracket is sturdier, being held in place with a stout wire. I also notice that the Ortlieb bracket holds my bag a bit further forward from the handlebar. I like this, as it gives my knuckles plenty of room when I am riding with my hands on the top of the handlebar. I haven't used the locking feature, as I always remove the bag when I leave my bike to visit a store, etc. It did take a bit more time to install than my previous Klickfix bag mount, but the extra time was worth the upgrade.
Now I can use my Ortlieb handlebar bag on different bikes

Ortlieb handlebar bags are the best bags I have used, but the mounting clip cannot be moved from bike to bike limiting their use. This mounting set lets me expand the number of bikes on which I can use the bag. I found that the mounting clip is not available at any of my local bike shops, so I was happy to find it in the Cyclosource Store. I am sure I will order another mounting clip so I have one for each of my bikes. Thanks to Cyclosource for carrying such a wide range of great parts and gear!
Another great Ortlieb product

I have three touring bikes and I put one of these on each bike so I can move my bag from bike to bike. Using the Ortlieb -Ultimate 2-6 Handlebar Bag is a piece of cake and snaps in and out for easy installation and removal.

Mounts easily and works great. I should have bought it years ago instead of switching the mounting set between my bikes.

I had the 5 series of this mount and was very happy with it. They made the 6 to accommodate the new mount adapters for lights and speedometers. I bought one of the adapters so I had to buy the 6 mount for that to work. Overall the 6 goes on the same way and works well. It locks the Ortlieb handlebar bag in place just fine. I'm probably not used to it, but it takes a little more to get the bag on than my 5 series. Otherwise it's good.
But there may be an issue with the adaptor depending on your bike. So read my review on that as well.
